poop won't go all the way out
When I poop, I can't go all the way. I usually end up with poop stuck on my anus; and I really don't want to strain. This leads to endless wiping. I've fought this matter for while now... it's getting tiring, and I realy urge for a solution.
You'll have to provide more details. What do you eat on a typical day? How much fiber are you getting? How much water do you drink?
Just offhand, I would suggest some heaping helpings of Metamucil, mixed with PLENTY of water, taken several times a day for a while. See if it helps.
Also-try leaning forward as far as you can while "going." Sometimes for reasons only known to the universe, this helps.
But do try the Metamucil. I am becoming quite enamored of it -- somewhat like a crack whore, but jonesing for the fiber...
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?
