This isn’t on the Bristol scale—help?

So I’ve had a bad flare, and have an appt Friday. It’s possible i caught E. coli from my husband who was out in the woods.

BUT my poop is furry. Like fuzzy and furry but it’s formed and not soft like diarrhea. Is this mucus coating or something?

Thanks!

  1. Hi! I unfortunately can't give you any answers, but I hope you do receive some at your doctors appointment. I wish you the best! Cheers, Michaela (irritablebowelsyndrome.net Team Member)

    1. How did your appointment go ? I hope you were able to get some answers. Let us know how you are doing. Hugs, Elizabeth (team member)

      1. well it’s been a learning experience! They said it was likely mucus, and possibly an infection because my husband had had a stomach bug he picked up floating the river nearby and I probably caught it. She gave me some dicyclomine for stomach cramps and did a test (still waiting on that). But she didn’t tell me that if you are in any way having cramps and ARE leaning towards constipation (i have IBS mixed) then don’t take it. And I did. And ended up impacted for the first time in my life. I’ve given birth twice and this was worse by multiples. But I’m finally I think improving so thanks for asking!

      2. Oh gosh, I'm so sorry you ended up impacted. That sounds so painful! Glad to hear you are improving. I hope you continue to get better. Keep us posted. Hugs, Elizabeth (team member)
