Infected rectal mucous from rectal stump
I have an end colostomy and know that you still produce rectal mucous from the remaining rectal stump (especially when you pass urine).
About 10 days ago however my mucous turned a brown colour and smelt bad. I saw my GP and he's gave me a swab and said to take a sample next time it happened as it sounded like it was infected.
I'm currently undertaking another round of chemo because of a reacurrance.
I was just wondering if anyone out there had had a similar experience of infected mucous? And wonder what causes it?
