I've been having HORRIBLE constipation and abdominal pain for several days (around the same time I joined the forums). I've been ringing my doc's phone off the hook, finally went to see her today and she said I'm really badly backed up.She said that my colon hypermobile around the upper left quadrant (splenic flexure), where I have most of my pain, but that it's hardly moving at all toward the bottom. She thinks I may have an infection in my stomach and prescribed Flagyl just in case. She also told me to hold off on oral laxatives and start doing Fleet enemas daily.Well, I did the enema and barely pooped at all. Then, about 10 minutes later, I pooped a really long (like 5 inch), thin string of mucus. Eww! The office is closed and I don't want to bother my doc any more until I've finished treatment. But wtf? I'm scared to death. I've had small amounts of mucus in my poo before, but never a big long string of it and nothing else. Everybody here's probably already heard about my colon cancer phobia. My doc freaked me out by saying that she's 99.99% sure that I don't have colon cancer. That's not what I want to hear. I want to hear that she's 100% sure. Arrgh.I'm going to DIE if I don't end this constipation-related pain. My upper GI tract is flipping out. Reflux, gas, squeezing, pain... But my lower GI tract won't MOVE anything. The pain is HORRIBLE. Has anybody else ever pooped a big long string of mucus? It didn't look like a worm or anything. just a long strand of ickiness.No blood. FOBT was negative. I do have bad hemorrhoids.
