Smelly brownish/yellow mucus coming out of rectum, constipation, stress, cry, zanax, little appetite

I have slimey brownish/yellow mucus coming out of my rectum and I feel HORRIBLE, like I ve had the life sucked out of me. Normally, I am constipated but I m under an extreme amount of stress and cry many hours a day and now this mucus thing has started. I feel so terribly tired, almost like I m on zanax or some kind of downer and I have very little appetite . Could this be serious? My father died of liver and colon cancer in his early 50 s and I m in my 40 s so I m a bit concerned. Thanks for any advice or direction you can provide.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

I am glad you are open to symptoms and not ignoring the observations. Since there is a history of colon cancer, it is possible to have any kind of colonic diseases. Sometimes, it can be something very silly as well. So, kindly get it checked and undergo a endoscopy or so. However, with respect to diet, its always adviced to consume lot of fruits and vegetables and avoid fatty foods. Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants in them which avoid cancer cells multiplying or even avoids tumor formation. Its very beneficial to include lot of coloured fruits and vegetables, fiber, whole cereals, and low fat products . A strict NO to alcohol if you are consuming Increase your fluid intake. Also with these, a medical check up is definitely necessary.

Good luck!!!
