I am a three-year survivor of ovarian cancer. For the last 5 days I have had loose/mucousy stools, cramps like diahrrhea. Seems to come at different times, no real consistency, although I will notice it after a meal, within an hour or so. The cramping/pain is lower abdominal. I also have some rectal pressure because of it. I phoned my doctor. They advised to take Immodium and if it's not better by Tuesday to call them. No blood appears in the stool as far as I can tell. I know you are not physicians and don't know all of my symptomology, but just wondering if you can advise and/or tell me what else to watch out for. Thank you so much for helping me.
