no mucas stool is sympton of inflammitory bowel disease or IBS as well as coeliacs. As well as bleeding and incontinous stool movements. I have all this and have been diagnosed with IBS as everything else ruled out.

Mucus can form when the stomach digests food slowly and bowels are working to move food along but not enough to work on IYSWIM.

Not sure what your dd is tub fed for and how much but if she has liquids mainly could this be why?

You can ask GP for blood test for coeliacs if you are concerned though as it wouldn't hurt to rule it out.

Best of luck.

constipation can cause anal fissures which are cuts usually in the colon which can then bleed with aggravation everytime a stool is passed. Is it a lot of blood? I had a stool test about 12 yers ago which showed blood in the stool but no test picked up why. The camera up the bottom isn't meant to be painful but I found it very uncomfortable as gastro said its because my bowels are very sensitive. Will they sedate dd for you?

Hopefully you'll get some answers but I hope its good news trace2.

no problem. I really sympathise with your dd as its not nice suffereing in this way. I'm glad she's being put to sleep.

I really hope you get some answers and the positive things is there are lots of medications now to treat these conditions and they are much better controlled then they were 10 years ago.

BTW I hope its not the bread as its lovely to hear that despite your dd problems with eating she is still trying - you must be really proud. Smile
