Sorry about this - my sister is 37 and recently had this, along with constipation. Does anyone know what mucus in poo means please? Is it something to worry about? Is there something she can eat that will help?

Many thanks in advance.

It can be the body's way of moving the blokage.

But ewwwwwww you said mucus, and I was eating yoghurt!!!!

the bowel produces a bit of mucus to try to shift the hard poo, but if she keeps getting it she should go to gp.

I have finished my yoghurt now, thank you very much.

And the lumpy bits [snooty forgiveness emoticon]

Oh dear Colditz - thanks for the info.

Just for reference (and actually so I can laugh some more) what flavour was your yoghurt? Toffee? Vanilla?

No, no don't answer that - I have to go to bed before my stomach hurts any more from laughing at your "ewwwwwwww". Chortle, chortle! (and sorry again). x
