Question: for a number of days now,my bladder urges me to relieve itself and at the same time,there is a slimy liquid emanating from my rectum.not once only but everytime I urinate ! I am a Diabetic type 2 for years now and used to getting up several times to urinate during the nite or daytimes ,however,this bowel movement in addition really is something new.Also.once or twice my 'leaking gut"discharges itself violently and urgently often quite unannounced.much to my embarrassment.

Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to weak anal sphincter muscle

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query ,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have urgency to pass urine and there is a leakage of mucus from anus every time when you urinate

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1)Is your diabetes is under control ?
2) Have you ever consulted general surgeon or Proctologist for per rectal examination ?

The leakage of mucus from anus during urination is due to two factors
1)Both the sphincters i.e ,anal sphincter and Sphincter of urethra have same nerve innervation by Pudendal nerve ,hence when the sphincter of urethra gets relaxed as it happens while passing urine the anal sphincter also relaxes making way for thin mucus to leak out through anus .

2) In old age anal sphincter becomes lax and it's tone is reduced so it opens up even with slight increase in intra abdominal pressure while passing urine causing leakage of thin mucus through anus.

You need to consult qualified Proctologist for digital rectal examination to assess the tone of anal sphincter.

Doing Kegel's exercises and perineal exercises thrice daily will help to increase the tone of the sphincters and will help to resolve the issue .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR ADVISE.IN REPLY TO YOUR QUESTION NO.1 RE.Diabetic control,I must honestly admit to having a fluctuation control.meaning every morning it is different but always between 5.5 to 11.4 depending on when and what I ate the late evening before.IN the morning,I inject regularly 52 units insulin also.
Q.2.No I never in my long life had to consult any of the specialists you mentioned.

RE.my important appointment this morning.I am pleased to report,that the dose of active charcoal capsules I'd prescribed myself had done their job .Meeting went without interuptions.

Hello sir. I am suffering from erectile dysfunction what medicine should i take to cure Is this diease cureble

doctor1 MD

Hello
I have a lack of libido and don't get erection easily. And I tend to lose it during sex. The other thing is I noticed that I started to lose sensation in my penis. This has been on going for almost a month now. Every time I get erection I feel bloated and big pressure in my stomach that I feel pressing on my abdomen making me lose the erection. I am constipated and bloated all the time. The problem started with a pain in my lower back - which I still have but its subsiding, and pain in my testicles that keeps shifting from one side to another ( I still have). I saw a urologist, he performed ultrasound on my testicles and said everything is alright. He said It's probably a pinched nerve in my back. I am taking 800 mg ibuprofen, and I have black stool. My question is:
1- Is the erection problem related to the pinched nerve in my back because I might have a Pudendal Nerve Entrapment as I read online?
2- or is it because I might have gastrointestinal bleeding because of taking 800 mg ibuprofen, which I am suspecting, but no evidence except constipation, bloating , and black stool?
3- or it other problems related to the prostate or kidney stones?
