It's not unusual for me to have alot of mucus with my ibs. I don't remember having a fishy smell but sometimes the smell can be worse than that. Last week I started having diarrhea (Thursday) and it was brown at first, then green. For more details, see my other post on the general board.Prior to Thursday I noticed that some of my stools (which were well-formed) were green. I've been eating alot of raw spinach and beet greens - spinach, mostly - in an attempt to lose weight and use up what was given me. I don't like food to go to waste. I'm surprised it's taken this long for the green to work it's way out of my system, but at least this evening, even though I'm still in alot of discomfort, can say it's no longer green!You said that you're eating no new foods, but what about raw greens???? I'm afraid of touching them again because of the agony I've been in for the past several days.
Hello, new to this board but not to IBS.I just have a quick question, Sometimes when I get the mucus stuff after a bowel movement, it has a bit of a fishy - like smell?Does that make any sense to anyone? Also, my stool has been a bit of a green color the past week or so. One day it was Bright green!No new meds, no new foods, I can not think of what the problem could be. I suppose I should call my tummy doctor.Please except my apology if this was to graphic or gross of a post. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.~Tonya

I had this as well but it never went away. Have fish smelling mucuous daily for six months, I believe it is a biochemical odor from stress induced possibly parasites or protozoans(giardia or worms)
No, I have no body odor. In fact I rarely even have to wear deodorant becauseI just don't have the sweaty pitt smell. Like I had mentioned yesterday, the smell has left and it is now a normal color.I increased my probiotics and ate more yogurt. Now it is gone, both smell and green color.so perhaps that helped. I had never had the smell thing before is why I had posted. I have had green bowels before in the past and I have been dx with IBS for about 13 -14 years. I am just glad that it is gone. I really appreciate your responses as It is nice to know that you can talk with others about things that you just don'tspeak of in every day conversation with just anyone. Have a nice night. Take Care, ~Tonya

Hi all - my case is summarized @ http://www.ibsgroup....ed-your-advice/
This morning I had an urge to poo and some mucus ended in my underwear....photo @ http://img853.images...3/5695/yv4k.jpg
Any idea if this is related to IBS or some other serious condition? no blood visible, just some fecal matter....
