Pus or Mucus?, Any help appreciated.

I'm not sure were i last left off. I'd been having abdomin (abdomen) and pelvic pain, bowl problem's.

My family doctor did a 24 hour unrine test - it came back clean. She also got two stool sample's, test result's havent come back yet. My surgeon ordered a blood sample and a CT scan of my abdomin (abdomen) and pelvis. I go back to see him on the 11th of july.

What's being mentioned is possible Irritable Bowl syndrom (syndrome). But knowbody know's yet - if it is then thank god it's nothing more serious, yet it's a vary frustrating problem.

Anyway's, i get pain in my appendix area and i cant help but alway's thinking it's the appendix. I've had it before and then it will go away, this time when i push on it it hurt's. Nothing crazy, and i have no rebound pain. This is day 2 of me noticing it.

Anyway's i have a question, today i had a bowl movement and it had all these, i dont even know how to describe it. Like it you cut off all the wiggly fat from a raw chicken breast - gelly like but definetly connected. Is is mucus?, i've never had that before And i dont know what it is. An internet search hasent helped out any.

Could someone please tell me what it could be, and the difference between Mucus and pus. What it look's like and such.

A suggestions you might want to run by your doc on the 11th.  The sore area by your appendix might be verticulitis. Waste matter gets stuck along your bowel wall and forms a little pocket, which can be hard-feeling, and becomes sore to the touch.  Your doc can give you something to help break this up, and drinking lots of water regularly helps.  It can be a problem with people who eat lots of fibre (but not enough liquid) or have other bowel problems.  It's very treatable.

As for the pus/mucus thing.....pus is comprised of white blood cells and generally indicates infection (like the white-head on a pimple).  I think I've had what you describe (and I may never eat chicken again, thanks!) a couple of times - both times my stomach has been upset from eating too much spicy/fatty food.  Once my stomach has recovered I'm back to normal.

Good luck with the irritable bowel.  It can be frustrating, so I hear, but manageable once you start to regulate your diet and learn what agrees and what doesn't.

Just want to comment on the possible irritable bowel diagnosis. Alhtough this seems to be a "not so serious condition", I've have a near death emergency due to the pain this caused.
People have lots of opinions regarding this and I have been there all the way and back. I appreciate that evryone may need a different answer, but feel compelled to mention that sometimes a "healthy high fibre" diet can be your worst enemy. Since I've been avoiding insoluble fibre, I am a new person!

You may find the follwing useful. An investigation called videomicroscopy blood tests was very helpful to further identify allergies to wheat and dairy. PLEASE check out this link:

I am symptom free as long as I don't cheat with the wrong foods. This may not be the answer for you, but keep on looking until you find yours! Irritable bowel is not a joke.

Good luck!
