Ask Poopreport: Pain After Pooping.
I'm a seventeen year-old student, and every time I go to the bathroom, I am in so much pain afterwards that I can't do anything. I can't bend over, I feel weak, and usually I have to lay down and go to sleep, hoping when I wake up the pain will be gone.
Instead of feeling good about pooping, because I'm going to get rid of bodily waste, I fear the pain that comes with it. I have been to so many doctors over the past five years that I don't remember all of them. One even removed my appendix, but it didn't solve my problem.
I've noticed that now when I wake up in the morning my stomach still hurts from pooping the night before; the pain lasts all night and into the morning. What should I do? I have tried probiotics, fiber, and lactaid-free diets. Instead of feeling good after I go, I am in pain for hours, or sometimes, days. Please, if you have any suggestions to help me, let me know.
