Ok i really need help with this. Ok i had mucous in my stool one night and I have been having stomach issues for a while now. My doctors did some tests and came to the conclusion i was just impacted and my colon was stretched. They cleaned me out and put me on miralax and fiber doses. I have been feeling better for the most part but I am not quite better. The doctor told me to keep track of my stool and see if i have anymore mucous. If i have mucus in my stool is easy to spot. Recently when I took a look at my stools I have been seeing small white strands attached to the stool visible in the water. Is it normal for stool to have these very small white strands. Should I get worry about this or should I be looking for full clear stool. The stools are also formed. They look normal except the strands.

PLEASE help! Thank you.
