Brief Answer:
It'll go away as amebiasis is cured.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for following up,

Diarrhea and mucus are because of amebiasis.
Both these symptoms are a classical textbook feature of amoebiasis. It will take 7-10 days along with medications to make things better. These symptoms are a part of the presentation and would take time to recover completely.
