Brief Answer:
It could be due to Gastritis.

Detailed Answer:
Stomach pain could be due to Gastritis .It might have occurred because of Aspirin intake.I prescribe Tablet Rabeprazole 20mg twice daily before food to my patients with similar complaints.
Blood in the stool could be due to Haemorrhoids or Fissure in ano. You should take high fiber diet,eat fresh fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of liquids.
If your stool is soft,bleeding will be stopped.
Inspite of dietary modifications if the symptoms still persist, you could consult your doctor and ask for COLONOSCOPY.
Some amount of mucus in the stool is normal.
Hope I answered your query.If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.

I had a tkr 2 months apart and have experienced heart palpatations after the second week of my last tkr. I m getting off the pain medications as the are driving me crazy. I d like to take aspirin as I took it before my tkr. I m going to call my doctor today as the palpatations seemed worse last night and this morning. Also, I have been feeling stress since my tkr.

I am 49 and have a heart murmur that has not impeded any activity in the past. Yesterday after a weekend of working on my house in the hot sun with no breaks for food and water, I woke up with a pain in my heart when I rolled over on my back. It subsided when I sat up, but I was pretty exhausted and slept all day. I felt fine by the evening. This morning when I woke up I felt a slight pain (not as bad as yesterday) again relieved when I sit up. I have a heart vitamin with coenzyme Q10, resveratol in it. I took one yesterday plus one aspirin. I have stayed home again for rest. I have no insurance right now. Recommendations?
