Bowel Troubles Mucus

Posted , 4 users are following.


I have struggled with constipation my whole life. It wasn't until three years ago that I finally committed to losing weight did it finally impact me how irregular I was, how swollen it made my stomach, that it is painful not to have a bowel movement, etc. (lost 210lb)

I have to manually start myself and sometimes that doesn't fully help me as I cannot fully clean myself out. I also get mucus that comes out every so often in big globs(well, big to me. About the size of a penny or nickel) and they'll come out as I pass gas or when I try to poop, but nothing else comes out.

Anyone have an idea of what could be the issue? I noticed this for the last few years.
