When my husband passes motion, there is some white mucus discharge. What should we do moving forward?

Hi @Yingying mucus in the stool can be normal as the body produces it to facilitate passage of stools through the intestines, among other applications. That being said, usually the mucus is not visible. If you clearly see mucus discharge, especially with pain, diarrhea, or even blood in your stools, possible causes such as fissures, inflammatory/infectious diseases, growths, and others may need to be excluded depending on your condition. Other considerations include recent use of antibiotics/hospital stay, and recent travel. You can snap a picture of what you see and visit your local GP clinic for an assessment, as these require further evaluation and potentially even a referral to a specialist for scopes depending on the GP's findings. If time is a constraint, feel free to connect with a GP from home first using an app like DoctorWorld if you would like a more detailed review using teleconsultation to review options for your next course of action.
