Toni, when I get like that I just go ahead and do a small enema. I don't use the whole bottle. You may have too. Also drinking warm water can stimulate the bowels. My P.T. says to touch your rectum and that will stimulate it also. She also says that there is this muscle that can get tight and then there is not a straight shot to the rectum from the bowel. It pulls the intestines up. I think you would be having a noodle looking stool then. And mucus is suppose to mean something because I am asked that alot. But I don't know what ! Dose any one know? I know enemas are not pleasant , they cause some pain. I have to go lay down afterward. Good luck Jaynie
