Severe back pain frequent constipation. Slimy discharge. Reason?

I am on prescription pain medication for several severe back problems. When I started this medication, I was constipated most of the time. Now for the past 3-4 weeks I have began having to get up at about 4am for a bowel movement. This is always a very slimmy bowel movement and then thru out the day I am having this type bowel movements. I has gotten so bad that I am now having to wear a pad for my clothing protection. Could this be something serious?

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are having slimy discharge from the bowels.. needs use of pads..painless
it is not diarhhea..?
is there any haemorrhiods/fissure, which got infected and leading to discharge..
see your surgeon for the diagnosis.. probably you have internal heamorrhiods...
see also your gastroenterologist for the colonoscopy.. for the possibility of polyps in the colon..
all the very best..
