Question: fuzzy feces

 tarushing - Tue Mar 18, 2008 6:26 pm

I am a 29 yr. old female who has suffered with an eating disorder for about 14 yrs. Recently I noticed (during a episode of constapation) which I often have, my rather small b/m (one small piece about 1 inch long) had what appeared to be fuzz on it. Upon closer examanation it appe4ared to be slimmy instead of fuzz. Please cna you help me identify what's going on?

User avatar Hello -

What you saw sounds like gastric mucus, which is really not all that unusual, especially in cases of abnormal activity, which in your case is probably directly caused by your eating disorder. This is not usually a concern in and of itself, but only as a describer included in disordered bowel activity.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
