i think (and i may be wrong and therefore maybe i shouldn't post this), that mucous in poo can be a sign of a food intolerance/reaction? but then i was looking into milk intolerance with babies, so i don't know for a 3 year old. i would ask though. even if you don't get a very good response, you could book another appointment for next thursday with another doctor? has you son eaten anything different?
i'm sure it isn't urgent, cos he would be feeling off colour/behaving differently. maybe his tummy has just got sensitive to certain food. if he has been feeling sick for a couple of months, then that sounds quite a mild reaction, so it might be difficult to identify, if it is some type of food. if it was severe, you would be getting other reactions/differences. hope he feels better soon.
I think it's worth checking out tbh, even if he seems okay. If he feels sick after eating, that's not nice for him. It's probably as simple as a virus that'll go by itself, but it's better to rule out anything like bacteria, celiac ect. x
Thanks. I ended speaking to a nice dr by phone at lunchtime. He said give it a week if the mucus has gone then fine but if not bring in a sample. He still want to see him though about the sickness feeling to make sure his tummy and glands are ok. I've been putting the sickness feeling down to him feeling full and not being able to tell the difference, god I'm going to feel awful if it's something else
that's good news and reassuring! don't feel awful at all, crikey it is difficult being a mum! i worry about everything and so am sure my lo picks up on this and will probably grow up being a total hypochondriac (sp?)!!! you're getting him checked over and in every other way, he is totally fine, so don't beat yourself up about it. i hope the check up goes well for you both
