Problmaticer asks:

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.





Dear Problmaticer,

Sigh.

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.

Got a question for her?

This sounds a lot like a million wiper. You may be eating too much fat, which can make your poo sticky and soft. Try cutting down on the red meat and see if it helps.

This is so annoying. I strain and strain, the super long duke comes 4/5 of the way out ans refuses to budge. Then when my muscles give up is slowly sucks back in. Now I can't even make it come out an inch, and I'm miserable because I can't take a frigg'n dump anymore without something bad happening!! Help!

I think we need a spinckter/colon workout and fitness guru. "Leaning forward" is only one of the available moves to move. Also try spicy/greasy food, or apple anything, and alcohol. All three at once if you really want no bind-up. No promises on "endless wiping" however...and the spincter will be empty(no half ins half outs)
BTW...I LIKE misspelling spinckter(!)

Asphincter says WHAT...(!)

If none of the above mentioned advice works, try an enema once in a while. That will get everything out fast.

Just shove tweezers up your ass and yank it out. A lot less expensive than an enema.

The fiber suggestion is probably the best, but nevertheless, there will still be those times when you're forced to battle kling-ons (or kling-ins). I highly recommend a toilet-mounted bidet. Used one myself for awhile until the cheap thing broke (make sure it's a good brand). You can ream yourself out until you're brand-spankin' clean! Just don't turn up the pressure too hard--you'll start to fill up the poop chute with a lot of water and you'll spend the next two hours running back and forth taking bum leaks.

Yep, the infamous million wiper. Try backing off Micky D's for a while.

Try eating a bowl of Fiber One Honey Clusters at least three times a week. With lots of fiber, drink enough water, fiber absorbs water like a sponge. This should help a bit.

To contribute here, I have occasionally had a minor problem with my solid dump pausing for a few minutes as it gradually pushes itself out. I try to strain as little as possible, but if my log remains stationary at the end of my butt for too long, I am forced to push and grunt the rest out. For people who have similar problems, a good diet and eating more fiber is a start.

I have been having trouble with bowel movements for years now and the doctor have just told me to drink plenty of water and take fiber as much as needed. So a couple days ago i started taking FiberCon as the bottle prescribed and now I cannot seem to gain weight. Do I just have a fast metabolism and the poop in my intestines making it look like I had gained weight, or is the food shooting through my system too fast.

I had fantastic poops my whole life but when I hit 35 I got the same sticky/stuck poop problem and still have it 5 years later. No doc has really fully explained it yet. One told me to do Fiber One instead of the Metamucil I had been taking because Fiber One was the correct type of fiber I needed. Then another doctor called it "anal incontinence" but he was just stupid and did not bother to notice my sphincter tone was very good. Two more said I might have a "anatomical" reason or rectocele. I am male but they said males get rectoceles too. Anyway, now the only way to see if that might be true is visit a butt surgeon and probably do some pooping tests. Anyone else been through this whole long story themselves? Any good outcomes? Any surgeries?

Oh...one other thing I forgot to mention...oddly enough I did have a few weeks were my sticky stuck poops seemed to improve. It happened when I was taking antibiotics for a non-GI problem. I think it is odd because I thought antibiotics were supposed to give you diarrhea, not make your stool more firm!

Ever since I started eating fiber one, I haven't had that problem. I just eat 2-3 servings of the PLAIN Fiber one cereal daily (I have NOT tried any of the other fancy, cluster fiber one cereals..So I can't vouch for them).. and it's awesome. I have no picture on the toilet paper poops! I was always irregular, I tried that Benefiber crap, it didn't do poop for me. Only thing that works for me is Fiber one. Now I poop daily and I lose like a pound and a half every toilet trip.

Earlier this year I had a hard piece of poop trying to get out. It was really hurting, so I felt down that way, and it was sticking out stretching my skin between my vagina & anus. I had to push it towards my anus to get it out, and it sure hurt! I bled a little and now wonder if I ruined my colon area or the 6 inches from the beginning of the anus to inside. It is like there is a little area where hard pieces of poop collect. Now, I have to dig them out sometimes with my finger. It is gross. I wonder if gay men get this problem, because that hard piece of poop I got out was like a hard 6 inch you know what. Do I need to go to a colon doctor? I take flax oil pills at night and eat bran cereal in the morning. I also seem to have more gas than I used to. I am a baby boomer. I have to sit on the toilet and concentrate to get poop to come out. I do rock back and forth. One time my poop was white, but that was before I got my gallbladder out, a few years back. So, if anyone ever has white poop, get your gallbladder checked! Now, my poop is like light brown clay that has chunks and marbles and is still pliable. Thanks for reading. I am sure glad I found this site. I just typed "poop stuck" in google search engine.

I am 18 years old and for about 3 years now i have had the pooping problem too. Not just occasionally, but EVERY time i go to the bathroom, i will poop, but only like 3/4 of the poop just comes out and for some reason, i cannot get the rest of it out. It leaves me with a dirty butthole all day long and i have to wipe constantly. I have had 2 colonoscophys already, and tryed everything from suppositories to metamucil, fibercon, fiber one, zelnorm, dulocox, laxitives, stool softeners, and i also increased my fiber intake of food and water... nothing. I really dont know what to do anymore.. do anyone have a solution?

What I do when I can't clean my self totally is use a small syringe. I fill it up with some warm water. Then I put some of it in my ass. Then sit back down and fire it out. That cleans the colon, and ends the endless wiping. Don't put too much in or you could hurt yourself or make yourself sick.

Psyllium all the way. I have a few spoons a day. Loose powder's a lot cheaper than the pills and the results come out (pun intended) smoothly after a day and carry on from there. I only need to use a few squares of paper now, and no grunting. So yeah. Mix powder with any liquid, chug it down (it thickens fast) and a few hours later, have a nice minute on the throne.

To keep from having more kidney stones (pain!), I must drink about 64 oz. of water a day. Most days I can at least come close, and some weekend days I can actually exceed the 64 oz. The result is that my stools are softer than they used to be, and once in a while (nowhere near every time) it really does feel as though some poop is still left inside that no amount of pushing at that time will get out. I can always wipe clean (takes 3 or 4 sets of folded paper), so I just leave the poop inside me until the next movement. I have never found that anything ends up in my pants, not even a skidmark; just sometimes I have to poop again in about an hour. I do know about the slow sticky wipe-ups, though; it is rare that I get anything solid enough for a single wiper any more.

hi, i really need help. i took a dump the other day just as i was about to lay the (possibly) last one, i relaxed my arse muscles and it all come back up. i decided that this was no problem so i wiped and went. however, about 10 mins later i experienced a very weird feeling: i felt weak and a bit cold and it felt like i was going to have really bad diorrhea, so by instinct i wen to the loo and pushed as hard as i coul but got nothing. since yesterday (the day of the 'deadly dump') i have been experiencing tis weak, sick, diorrhea-ish problem. NOTHING IS COMING OUT AND I FEEL REALLY ILL....wat's wrong with me??? and how do i help it????

I have had the same problems with my BM over the past 2 years. If i can give anyone any advice it would be, do not use laxatives! I could not get myself regulated and I used laxitives and aloe vera juice on a regular basis... BIG MISTAKE! About a year ago while I was having a BM I felt my colon come out of me! I went to a surgeon who diagnosed me with rectal prolapse. This is something very rare in someone my age, I am 25... I had surgery 3 wks ago and they had to take out a foot and a half of my colon. So painful :(

To facilitate the extrusion of shit from your anus, spray that hole quite liberally with WD-40. Conservative application of WD-40 is not effective and will leave you full of shit.

My poops have been regular and wonderful until I hit sixteen. I'm 18 now and I have irregular poops, sometimes I see mucous in my poop and sometimes they are sooo hard to get out. Went to the doctor about it and they told me it was constipation and gave me softeners, fiber presrip, and told me to drink lots of water. but it really hasn't helped. when I stick my finger in my vag I can feel balls of poo when I press down. how do I get all the poo out of me! I have been having pain on my right side, but its gone away. I've been drinking water, but goodness I'm pissing up a storm! help me out please :(

If you don't poop for 4 or 5 days, and then when you do feel the urge, it's only a small little pebble..Where is all that food at??? My poop gets half way out, and then it gets stuck, and I have to force it out with tissue! This is so disgusting! I've tried everything, you name it, I've tried it!

I was pooping earlier and my poop got stuck. I tried everything to get it out (straining, leaning, rocking, wiping) and all that came out were a few small pebbles. I thought I was going to die. Finally I had to dig most of it out, and then I prayed and the rest of it came out on its own. I then went into the bedroom and cried, and my husband asked me what was wrong and I told him. He laughed and said that happens to him too. I thought he was just trying to make me feel better until I found this website. I guess I need more fiber.

I'm sure I've posted this idea on another thread, but I can't find it. Anyway, for those of us who've ever snapped off a seized bolt in a casting, you know the only way to remove that remaining piece is to drill a hole down the centre of it, and install an ezy-out (a sort of hardened-steel spiral cone thing with a left-hand-thread).
As the Chief said, apply a liberal amount of WD-40, and gently twist the ezy-out anti-clockwise.
Often it helps to heat up the surrounding area with an oxy torch.

BM, the only problem I have removing stuck shit with your method (beside the oxy-torch stinging a bit) is that when I have to reach around, I get my clockwise and counter (anti) clockwise confused.

I had most of these symptoms as described by some of the readers. Bloated, pushing and pushing, blood, constipation, diarrea, gas etc. Everybody gave me advice but it didn't help. I went to a colon specialist, was operated on the 27th Jan 2009 - diagnosed with colon tumor the size of a golf ball which was the obstruction in the colon and cause of most of my problems as discribed above. My rectum and anus were removed, I am wearing a bag for my poo (stoma) on my side (terrible!!) - I have to undergo another two operations - why? I was to shy to discuss my problem and afraid of stupid people laughing at me and making jokes (shame on them) please, if you have colon problems, rather consider it as a life threatening problem than to try all sorts of remedies - consult a colon surgeon!!

When a turd comes out only 3/4 of the way and stalls, you must "pinch" the loaf with your sphincter and prematurely end the crapping process. This always results in extra messy wiping, like half a roll of paper. Come back an hour or so later, and the rest will naturally come out on its own. No need to be bobbing up and down on the toilet or prying it out with your fingers. ("Eat more fiber" is a great tip, but pretty much useless when you are stuck in the heat of the moment.)

So my poop smells like nail polish remover/acetone. It doesn't smell like poo & acetone, it literally reeks of chemicals. My gas smells normal and my actual poo is different every time. Sometimes I poo out complete pieces of food from a meal (undigested) and sometimes it's a big normal brown turd. However when I drink wine my poo is ALWAYS black for the next two days. I also have this strange Urachal cyst (which will rupture and bleed thru my belly button). So I'm confused. I have horrible stomach pains that have put me in the ER and on morphine that they assume are rupturing ovarian cysts, but my ultrasounds show that they have only gotten bigger. When the pains happen, my stomach is extremely distended to the point of looking pregnant& my stomach is tender for at least 2 weeks afterwards. I have had a colposcopy and biopsy for abnormal ECC, but no other procedures for it. I have been to several doctors and not one will give me answers. I had given up til this smell started happening again...please any advice will help and don't just tell me to see a doctor...

Dear TSV,
Thank you for you query...apply a butterfly bandage, or, in serious bleeding, wrap tightly with gauze and tape over with adhesive tape. Keep the turd immobile, raising the injury above the heart. Cold compresses can help slow the bleeding as well. For extreme, arterial shit bleeding, apply a tourniquet and call 911. For your benefit, and that of the dook, it is imperative that you remain calm, decreasing the chances of the turd going into shock.

for the poop nurse:
the reason why its easier to defecate while leaning forward is because it is mimicking the stance of squatting, which is the natural stance for us humans to poop in. toilets are very recent in our evolution, sitting up is not how we are designed to eliminate waste. so if anyone ever seems to have problems going all the way, it can usually be helped by finding something to use to squat over the toilet bowl on, like a small footstool on either side of it.
