Had kidney and pancreas transplants, bulging stomach, hernia, mucus discharge

My husband had two transplants, kidney and pancreas in 2008. He has 2 hernias that are bulging from his stomach. For about 3 weeks he only discharge mucus and he tries to go several times a day. He was in the hospital a little over a week ago and they did not seem to concerned about it. He is getting more uncomfortable every day. He has an appt on Monday but I want to get checked before then. What do you think?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your husband who has undergone surgery of Renal transplant and pancreas transplant has developed what is called as Incisional Hernia due to weakness of the muscles of anterior abdominal wall.

The loose motions that he has now may be due to enteritis (Bacterial infection in the Intestines)

Please consult qualified Gastro- enterologist for clinical evaluation and further treatment.

In the mean while give him more water and electrolytes to maintain his water and electrolyte balance.
