bizarre anal mucous
Starting about 3 years ago, I have expelled on a somewhat regular basis what I call an "asspod." They are whitish in color, solid, and of uniform size and shape (ovoid, about 2 cm long and .7 cm diameter). Pathology report on sample asspod identified material as mucous. OK, some mucous in the intestine is of course normal, but firmly-packed pods on a regular (i.e., monthly) basis, all of uniform size and shape??? Doctor was stymied but says since it's only mucous, I shouldn't worry.
But I still find it disturbing. Have you ever heard of such a thing? If so, what causes it? Should I be concerned? Is there a name other than "asspod"?
Thanks for your time.
I believe you have the name down correctly. The elimination of Asspods from the rectum is commonly referred to as "Asspodexpellitum".
One theory is that there is an abnormal amount of mucus produced in the small or large intestine, that passes along the digestive tract and for some reaon, does not dissolve and is excreted relatively unchanged.
Another theory is that your body has been penetrated by aliens while you sleep, and the aforementioned "Asspods" are embryonic life forms that require the water from an earthlings toilet bowl to gestate and hatch.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
