Hi Marie. I assume you mean when I have my pouch off for a change or shower do I get a rectal discharge?  My answer is no.  However, since my January 3 colostomy I'd been wondering when and if I'd get that occasional plug of mucous that I was told may occasionally discharge from my rectum. I got pressure in my rectum just last week and a bit of a push on the potty brought forth a small,plug of mucous. That's all that I've got going on back there. 

do you have events when your bag is off?

What does having you're bag open or off have to do with it?

thanks

Hi Marie, I too have an ileostomy from a failed J-pouch that was unable to be removed.  Yes I do occasionally (once or twice every couple weeks) have some discharge from my backside.  My doctors have told me that this is normal because my body does continue to produce mucous in the intestine, in this case the constructed J-pouch.  Sometimes it's a very modest amount and sometimes more.  I have noticed that at times it may look a little blood tinged but again I have been told that is completely normal. However, if you are having very bloody discharge and pain then I would think your doctor would want to know this.  I hope this helps.

Yes, mucus rectal discharge is perfectly normal, but the amount and frequency seems to vary from person to person.

I have rectal discharge all the time. Sometime several times a day because my out put comes in small amounts several times a day. I never knew or thought about the rectum producing mucus to help have a movement until I had my Colostomy. I found out about it on this site.
