Recently i had a bowel movement that had a tissue looking like substance in it. I have never noticed it before, but this time it i had this stringy tissue-like, long strip hang for a minute before going in the toilet. I know it sounds a little gross, but that is what concerns me, because i didn't know what it was. There also looked like some smaller substances like it in the other bowels that were already in the toilet. It didn't really look to me like worms though, so i don't know. Do you have any clue as to what could be going on? I would really appreciate any input.
