Thanks for your query.
Noted the history of stringy mucus and liquid that come out for an hour after bowel movements, which occurs every 1-3 days, this is frustrating, there are no other symptoms, takes probiotics, always feel that you have to go again and again to bathroom to make sure that the bowel has emptied, you are 40 year old female and is frustrated with this ...
Since the only symptom is as mentioned above - the cause is obviously the colitis
, I would advise you the following:
Send the stool for tests and also of the blood.
Get a course of an antibiotic, metronidazole
If there is no relief further investigations may be needed like colonoscopy
.Consult a Gastroenterologist
for further clinical evaluation and management
Avoid the foods and beverages that do not suit you.
as it adds on the problem of colitis.
If all the investigations are normal, the probability is of IBS
, that is irritable syndrome. Get treated accordingly.
