Brief Answer:
antibiotics and pain killer

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
I suppose you are having mucus discharge from vagina.
It is normal for few days after D& C.
However, if the discharge is excessive, then you should get an ultrasound done to confirm any retained products of conception in the uterine cavity.
Antibiotics and pain killers should be taken for 5 days post procedure to relieve pain and lower abdomen discomfort.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
Gastroenteritis likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, sorry for the wrong interpretation of the question.
Diarrhoea with mucus can be due to gastroenteritis, and pain in abdomen and back passage is common in this scenario.
I will suggest you to consult a physician so that proper examination can be done and further management should be done accordingly by antibiotics and antimotility drug.
