can you poop if your butt's asleep?
The Shit Volcano asks:
Here's one for the "ridiculous questions" section: If your butt's asleep, can you still poop?
Thanks for asking!
Actually, I have had personal experience with this situation.
About two years ago, I ruptured a disc in my spine, and had numbness in my ass (and legs). I was able to poop quite nicely.
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?
