Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You had stools normal in the begening, and loose , stringy, mucousy, dark brown, at the end. It has happened only only ones , and there is no pain abdomen.
So don't worry about the problem, it may be due to some change in the diet. or may be change in timing of the diet.
If it is repeated again you consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best wishes.
