I have a problem of clear mucus, sometimes it will look like wet tobacco too.I can not go when I get these attacks which happen every 1 to 1 1/2 months. I had colon cancer in 10/10 and liver cancer in 5/11which they took out half of my liver and my galblader. I take a stool softner and an oxy podwer every morning and evening so I can have a bowl movement. When I do have a movement it is as flat as a pancake. I have called to have an appointment set up with a gasteroligest as I can no longer take this pain. Any suggestion?

Irritable bowel syndrome may cause flat stools with less pathological changes . Present mucous with flatus passing through stools.
