for the past 12 days I have been experiencing mucous discharge from my anus. I had a total colectomy in May 2014. My Entire large intestine AND rectum have been removed. I have a permanent iliostomy. I was under the impression that I would never have anything coming out of that end ever again. Is this normal for recovering from this surgery? I don't have a fever. There is some itching beneath my incision. It is negligible. The only other symptom I may have is a little burning diarrhea like feeling. Mostly embarrassing. Wet bottom. Clear to yellowish viscous mucous almost constantly flowing now. Help?
