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.

-- Poonurse

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?

I have a turd that i cannot poop out... it is literally too big to come out... ive been trying to poop for 3 days now and it hurts so bad, it is right to but anus, but it will not come out, its like a big ball... this is seriously not a joke, it really hurts, what should i do?? is there anything that will soften it so i can get it out??? Im in real pain.

So close yet so far's picture

Constipated for a week. 2 days ago I pooped tiny pebbles and even though I felt there was more I couldn't poop it out. Then my rectum started to hurt like crap...so I took some Milk of Magnesia. I got some diarrhea poop leakage when I tried really hard to poop but that was it.

Went to doctor yesterday b/c of the constant rectal pain...she told me to take some Milk of Magnesia, Metamucil tablets, fruits, veggies and fiber foods. So I did

The pain was so unbearable today and I couldn't sleep for more than 3 hrs at a time b/c of the pain. Relief came when I was finally able to poop out this fist size poop but now the rectal pain is back and I can actually see the poop when I strain it get it out but it won't come out...I tried assisting it out manually w/o any luck and even took a suppository but no luck just minute liquidy poop.

Any suggestions? I really need help...

I have a major shitting problem. I find myself going about 8 times a day. Most of the time, so much comes out that I clog up the toilet. I even have moments when there is a lot of blood in the shit floating in the bowl. My stomach always hurts where I feel bloated and I always feel like I have to take a shit. As I'm shitting, sometimes I have explosive diarrea and as the shit comes out, it makes these loud noises. I also have times when the shit is so rock hard and its the size of a football. I've had this problem since I was 16 and I am now 27. Any advice? Please help me as my life is miserable with this ongoing problem. I feel like I have to shit again right now. Just took one an hour ago.

It's been 2 weeks I can't go to the bathroom, I try tea and pills, still not able to go to the bathroom. My first time try of the tea only made me go to the bathroom about 2 time a day. Then third day it didn't work. Went to doctor and they say my body have too much water. So they give me pills to go poop and pee, but it only work right after you take the pill once. Which it should have make you go bath room like crazy, but me it just once after take the pill and I can only take one pill a day. What is wrong with me?

Hello, COTT: You don't say whether you have seen a physician about this condition of yours. It is not normal. Please have it checked. Also: What do you eat? Have you made changes? Pooping may be a fairly straightforward act, but the story behind it is complicated and peculiar to each individual in some ways. Doctors can help.

It seems every time I poop its always liquid and makes me feel horrible, aside from that I have to wipe over and over to get rid of the nasty poop on the arse. Never regular and most times I'll wipe, pull up my pants, wash my hands and it feels like a train just wrecked in my colon...

Try swallowing repeatedly for several seconds, or take as many tiny sips from a cup of water as you can without stopping (may need to try more than one round). This can kick-start peristaltic contractions in the colon to push the poop out.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

Hemmorhoid Hunter's picture

the leaning forward thing is all about the way humans evolved to poop. the toilet was invented after we started pooping, before then everybody would bring their knees to their chest and squat down to poop. this sort of squeezes the poop out instead of requiring you to use your diaphragm to push. helps to prevent hemorrhoids and anal rupturing and all that fun stuff too.

Toilets are a fairly western idea, about 3/4 of the world still squat to poop.

Batman ate my poop, whats up with that?

stickypoosucks's picture

Yeah so I can poop alright but after the poop comes out it still feels like there is more inside my rectum. So I try really hard to push it out but nothing comes out. I checked with my finger and yeah there's still poop up in there. This happens quite frequently. Its a soft consistency, sticky and almost like peanut butter. I don't eat peanut butter though, nor any peanuts. Also its usually a million wiper. So freaking annoying. I'm young and relatively healthy otherwise. A few years back I would have perfect 1 wiper poops. I still eat pretty much the same, maybe I need more fluids or something? I eat my fair share of fruits and veggies.

RoidRage.... did your doc advise you to drink 8 oz of water every two hours every single day? What you are experiencing is constipation. Here's how my doc explained it to me after my colonoscopy. When food first goes into your stomch, there's plenty of fluid. As it travels through the intestines, the moisture is pulled away from it. If you haven't stayed hydrated, then by the time the food gets to the large colon and becomes poo, it is not wet enough and will move slowly to it's exit. If it is too sticky or dry, it will sit at the opening and just block the way. A small enema, using an ear syringe, will lubericate the way. An ear syringe is a hollow rubber 'ball' with an elongated tip. Just run some warm water into a glass. Squeeze the 'ball' and release it to suck water into the syringe. Get it completely full. Apply some lotion or vaseline to the elongated part. Insert the tip into the anus and squeeze the warm water into the butt. Do not release the syringe until you have removed it from the anus (you don't want to suck the water back into the syringe). Add more water to the syringe and repeat. Now, you can release the water from your butt and hopefully, it will lubricate the way for the hard poo to move out. Sometimes, the poo becomes impacted and has to be dug out manually with your finger or a baby spoon.

Once you have achieved results, be sure to drink lots of water every day!!!! If you have a day of dehydration, just keep your syringe handy in the bathroom so you can relieve yourself before it becomes impacted.

Magnesium citrate works by drawing a lot of the excess fluids from your body and propelling them--and whatever else is in your colon at the time--out of your butt (same as a saline laxative).

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

I had a colonoscopy AND hemorrhoidectomy last Monday, April 12, 2010. I'm a 30 yo happily married man. The doctor did a great job, and had me done with surgery in about an hour and a half. Upon getting home, the pain was extremely tolerable. I thought to myself, "Hey, that wasn't half as bad as I anticipated." The day after however, when all the local anesthetic wore off, OMG, I've never been in so much pain. Fortunately the doctor prescribed Demerol and Percocet (to be taken separately depending on how bad the pain is).

Backing up, the nurse at the surgery center instructed my to take 1 TB of Mineral Oil mixed with 1 TB of Milk of Magnesia on a nightly basis for the next 30 days, also take Colace (stool softener) twice a day. The reason for this was to make sure that my poo had the consistency of toothpaste, making it much easier to pass with a stitched rectum. I thought, "Great, this will be a walk in the park." Not so. Passing toothpaste consistency poo through internal and external stitches is absolutely horrendous. But, the alternative is definitely even less of an option. This leads me onto today...

Day 8 of the hemorroidectomy surgery brings me with an ass that feels better, still a little tender, but have been off the pain meds since yesterday. Why you ask? Pain medicine causes constipation. I was forgetful one evening and forgot to take the mineral oil/milk of magnesia elixir I so carefully concocted on previous nights.

Here I am, on day 8, haven't had a BM in 4 days (thank you pain medicine). My ass is tight (not in the good way), throbbing, pulsating, feeling highly pressurized. It feel like it's about to explode, but I can't get the big guy to budge without fear of my sphincter protruding as well.

What a guy to do? Call the doctors office, I thought that surely the front desk people have been faced with these questions from time to time. I called and spoke with a very nice woman, she said this happens all the time, and what I need to do is drink MORE magnesium citrate. The great stuff I so enjoyed last Sunday before the surgery. Problem is, I didn't really have any backed up bowels the previous time, AND I hadn't had surgery yet. I've done everything I can think of today, stool softener, prune juice, bran muffin, coffee, SMART WATER, all to no avail! Is this going to tear apart my stitches and what's left of my anus? I will post once the movement passes, to tell you the results.

By the way, if any of you decide to have this elective surgery, I do highly recommend it. You will never take more baths in a given week long period as you do after a surgery like this. Being in the tub is really the only time you get 100% relief from pain.

My "bottom" line question is this: Will taking the magnesium citrate liquify my poo, or does it just get the muscles going?

Dear TOI: There are several threads on this site related to anal leakage, leaky butt, and the like. There are dozens of suggestions on each, some serious, some not. My impression as a layman is that your husband is doing too much. Since he has tried so many remedies already, my suggestion (worth all you paid for it) is that he stop all the colon cleansing and other things, and after he poops, stuff some toilet paper in his crack and pull his underpants up with the toilet paper lodged in place. That way, if he still leaks, it gets on the paper, which he can remove and replace his next trip to the bathroom, whether he has another true bowel movement or not.

tired of it's picture

my husband is suffering "leaking" from his anus and has for the last couple of years. he describes his problem as when he poops not all of the poop comes out and gets stuck in his anus. the poop then will slowly seep out throughout the day causing him to stink. my husband will take at least 4 to 5 showers a day and sill smells like poop. we have been to numerous doctors and specialist with no help. my husband has his colon cleaned at least twice a month. we have tried all the home remedies and his currently takes all natural fiber pills which has helped with his pooping problem just not the stinking, leaking problem. also my husband has a "plump" butt and tends to sweat between his butt cheeks which then cause his smell to be worse. PLEASE if anyone has these problems or have any suggestions let us know.... thank you!

I think a laxative would take hours or days to work, which would take too long. Try sitting in quite warm water in the bathtub, then take a sliver of soap (softened somewhat by warm water) and slide it up; that may loosen things a bit or give them something slide to slide out past. Otherwise, see your doctor.

ok I have poop stuck in my hole and wont come out, I went but then the rest would not come. Im in so much pain... should I take a laxative?

Dear JW: At some point it will all come out. There may not have been enough poop down in the chute at the time that you tried, so when there is enough, you will poop. Think of it as a train siding that gradually fills up with cars: When the siding is full, the next car that comes along on one end will push everything along, and a car will exit the other end. The analogy is not exact, but something of the sort happens. That is why people eat high-fiber foods (within reason) to stimulate their bowels and bulk up their bowel movements.

As for whether everything is fine: Maybe, or maybe not. Wait to see what happens, but don't strain extremely hard in your efforts to poop. If after some days you still get no satisfaction, see a doctor.

i was taking a crap the other day and only a little came out so i started pushing harder but nothing came out so i just decided to get up,wipe,and leave. there are still remains of my feces inside because it couldn't come out so is it going to effect me in anyway or is everything fine?

Had a bit of a blocked up feeling the other day even though I did not really feel that I needed a shit.Anyway I thought I should check it out so I soaped up my finger and stuck it up there.I could feel some hard pieces so I scooped it out and ended up with about 5 pieces of slightly curved shit,about 1 inch long and so rock like they did not leave any poo residue on my finger.Te next morning I had a satisfying,fairly large dump without having to mine for nuggets.I am wondering what caused the poop nuggets which seemed as ahrd as rocks.

Hemroidectomy blues's picture

I have been having issues with my poop for 11 months now, this is waht happened:
Early April 09-2 spinal blocks for lower back pain, within 2 days I started having problems completely emptying my bowels each day, It is always a lot but I feel more, I used my finger and could feel soft poop that did not come out. This would happen a few times a week, then I would have a day or 2 each week where it didn't....I thought it was from my severe internal hemorrhoids so i had a hemorrhoidectomy July 1st, did well and then 2 months later started having more bad days with gas an bloating and some days feeling empty and some days not. I do eat a lot of fiber but if you ever had this surgery you never want to do it again so I am afraid to stray too far from my daily routine which is:
1 tb mineral oil
oatmeal
pineapples
fiber one cereal
peaches
prune juice
pinto beans
soup/crackers
1 tb metamucil
160-180 oz of water

I had a clear colonoscopy July 08

any help would be appreciated

Daphne -- Actually, correcting the diet per Dr. Hay's guidelines does in fact help every person heal nearly every illness, disorder, disease, etc. (even some they're born with!).

His 30 years of successful clinical results on every imaginable health problem--even perforated appendicitis--proved it time and time again. The only exceptions were people with extensive nerve damage, people who wouldn't change their diet, and a very few poor souls who were already too close to the end when they finally came to see him.

I'll take those clinical results over even the most well-reasoned speculation every time, but there are also many doctors practicing today who advocate the same or similar detox and diet change regimen as Dr. Hay. For example, here's a Houston cardiologist who prescribes detox and a vegan diet to "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and Related Conditions..." (and for a paltry $97 you can take his "home study" course and learn exactly the same thing I'm talking about for free... except with Dr. Hay's way you don't have to go full vegan). Here's another doctor who has been practicing natural hygiene for over 60 years now. He mainly advocates the raw-food aspect, but you don't actually have to go all raw, either. (Check out his articles and free downloads, but be ready to have your mind blown!)

Food combining is not new, that's correct, but it's also not a fad. Fad diets don't stick around 100 years. This one has because it actually helps people heal.

I know the regs are tired of hearing about it, though, so I will try to keep the enthusiasm a little more muted.

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

I think the problem is that not every person who comes to this website is going to be cured in the same way. There are people who come here who have many different illnesses, and it's totally naive to think that because a process helps one person it will help everyone else. It's also dangerous for some of these people, who might really need medical attention, to just decide to take the diet approach without getting full advice from a licensed, trained, educated doctor.

As far as the food combining fad goes, it's been around for over a hundred years. It's nothing new. I just don't buy it, because most carbs have proteins in them. In reality, very few foods are composed of just one type of macro nutrient. Pasta has protein, and a good deal of it, so you're mixing every time you eat it. Wheat has protein.

I think the health benefits that are perceived to come from food combining come from just plain eating better, and this why people who use this system lose weight. The assertion that digestion is compromised when someone eats carbs and proteing together has never actually been recorded in the stomach because it doesn't happen.

I'm not going to rag on you or on anyone who is trying to help others, but I will say this: while you want to help people, you can also alienate them if you're not careful. I tread my vegetarianism VERY carefully, because I've seen people like me become social pariahs due to their inability to talk about anything else but their diet choice.

Thanks for the concern IBSNM.....No Avandia for me, my diabetes is managed by small daily doses of Metformin and low intakes of starches whose glucose raising abilities are lowered by eating proteins along with them. My A1C readings are normal, 5.9 or lower, as long as I stick to the diet prescribed to me by my nutritionist.

Unfortunately I have a genetic defect that causes Atrial Fibrillation and puts me in a high risk category for a stroke unless I use Warfarin to keep my blood thin. There are many nutritious vegetables, most dark green leafy ones, that I can no longer eat in any quantity at all because they interfere with the Warfarin. I cheerfully take the hand I was dealt by life and try to have as much fun as possible. My Mom made it to 100 with A-fib, perhaps I will also.

Funny, PD. :)

Chief -- I hope you're not managing your diabetes with Avandia. Have you heard the latest on that?

Apparently they are recommending that it be removed from the market due to all the unnecessary deaths it's been linked to (304 just during the last quarter of 2009).

Never heard any news like that in relation to eating more fresh fruits and non-starchy veggies... but then again those foods are all akaline, while all medicines, drugs, chemicals of any kind leave acid residue.

On top of that, the way some meds suppress and control symptoms actually interferes with the body's own healing mechanisms, so those in particular offer us a double-whammy, doing twice the damage.

Also interesting to note... when you "heal" diabetes by eating correctly, certain parts--which were previously "broken" from it before--start working again (wink wink nudge nudge).

Actually it means that their previous incorrect eating habits caused the disease in the first place.

That was Dr. Hay's whole theory, which he proved correct thousands of times over on myriad health problems, illness, chronic disease, etc.--not just IBS or other digestive disorders.

Just separating carbs from proteins resolves nearly all digestive problems almost immediately, but that's only one tiny step in changing to more correct eating habits... and that instant healing is only one tiny testimony to what the human body is capable of, if we only get out of its way and stop the over-production of acid residues (which is what proper food combining does).

Food combining is not to be done temporarily and then revert back to old eating habits. It's a lifestyle change in the way you eat that heals current health problems and prevents new ones.

If someone were to heal themselves with proper food combining and then revert back to old eating habits, then yes, either their old health problems would return or they would develop new ones. After all, those old eating habits are what caused the health problems in the first place.

That's just it, though--you don't return to the old eating habits. No one does once they experience what correct eating does for them.

I respect and understand your and your daughter's positions, as I once believed the same as you. Then I experienced the healing that even simplified food combining offered... no more IBS or carpal tunnel or arthritis or allergies or high blood pressure, and of course the weight loss was awesome.

After about 4 months my hair and skin condition suddenly improved dramatically and my wrinkles started disappearing, so I decided I need to delve further into this food combining thing.

That's when I discovered Dr. Hay's many books, which are all written to instruct the average person on what exactly they can do to heal themselves of practically every imaginable health problem, using the exact same methods he used at his clinic.

I link the one below because it's the only one that's available for anyone to read for free online, and it also seems to be the most comprehensive in explaining everything compared to other of his books I've read.

You and your daughter might find it interesting to note what he says about feeding experiments, our government's knowledge of their results, and why the medical industry is reluctant to embrace natural healing of any kind...

Sorry INM.......I searched the internet and couldn't find anything on Dr, Hay's death, Trauma is hard to prepare for in advance.

The UK's most popular dietitian has an article on food combining that echoes what my doctors and dietitians at Vanderbilt have told me. Food combining may very well be beneficial to IBS sufferers but most of the benefit is because of the healthy diet they switch to on becoming a practitioner.

My daughter is a registered nurse and is certified as a diabetic councilor by the National Diabetes Association, she tells me that diabetes is a lifelong journey that can be "controlled" but can not be "reversed", I feel sure that anyone "cured" by Dr. Hay's diet would swiftly become "uncured" as soon as they reverted to their old eating habits. This means they had the disease under control but they were not cured.

Dr. Hay died from a CAR ACCIDENT--even correct eating can't trump severe trauma--but even still at 74 had outlived his life expectancy by almost 20 years, and was in great health when the accident happened.

He also treated hundreds of diabetics with the exact same diet changes, no matter if they were born with it or if it had developed later in life, and they ALL were healed of it... completely.

So you just go right on "controlling" your health problems, and I will go on healing myself of mine and helping others do the same.

IBS NO MORE said,

"Proper food combining was developed by a medical doctor who turned away from traditional medicine and surgery in favor of natural healing with detox and diet, based on years of clinical nutritional study. Just some food for thought. :)"

This is all well and good but the doctor died at the age of 74 in spite of his healthy eating. My mother, who believed that healthy eating meant eating meat, a starch, and plenty of veggies at each meal outlived DR. Hay by 26 years and was very robust until about 4 years before her death. At the age of ninety she could still place both palms flat on the floor in front of her without bending her knees.

My diabetes is being controlled by diet as recommended by doctors and dietitians from Vanderbilt University. They stress how important it is for all diabetics to consume small portions of starches and to always temper them by consuming protein at the same time. Using their advice I am able to maintain an A1C of 5.9 which is normal. I do not require insulin injections but do take oral medications to maintain this balance.

Food combining may be the right thing for you but I am going to stick to the opinions of mainstream medicine. Diabetes is controllable but is not curable. Type 2 known as non-insulin or adult-onset which is the most common form of the disease, is strongly associated with genetic predisposition. The jury is still out as to whether obesity causes insulin resistance or insulin resistance causes obesity, I would cast my vote for the latter.

Hey Chief -- Here's a Houston-area doctor (practicing TODAY) who is using a strictly vegetarian diet to heal people.

You don't even have to go full vegan to have the same healing benefits... you just have to eat as close to 4 servings fnv for every single serving of carb or protein each day as possible. (A vegan diet just makes the healing happen faster.)

It's all in the book...

Also, just out of curiosity... how many people here who have poop or other health problems have had their CURRENT eating habits reviewed by any nutritionist or medical professional?

Do any of you currently eat by the government's recommendations? I tried eating by the pyramid last year, and gallbladder attacks were the result.

Proper food combining was developed by a medical doctor who turned away from traditional medicine and surgery in favor of natural healing with detox and diet, based on years of clinical nutritional study. Just some food for thought. :)

When you say the word “poop,” your mouth makes the same motion your butthole does when pooping…
The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

Chief -- Did you also find the almost 30-year history of near-100% success rate for thousands of patients recovering from just about every imaginable health problem "amusing"?

If you read the whole book instead of just cherry-picking out parts that seem funny, then the speculative points (such as you quoted) become more clear.

Regardless of what was known then vs now, the principles Dr. Hay employed WORKED. Eating the way he suggested HEALED EVERY PERSON as long as they had enough life left in them to undertake the healing process.

People came to Dr. Hay from all corners of the earth--including Japan--and they were healed using nothing more than detox and diet change, even after they were previously told by many other doctors that they had no hope of living much longer. Some of them didn't even make all the changes necessary for their diets to be in strict adherence with the principles, and still they were healed.

(Yes Chief, changing your diet CAN heal your diabetes, even if you don't believe it's possible; however, if you've used insulin for too long then you may not have complete recovery since the organ may have become permanently crippled.)

Argue the academics all you want, but this fact remains crystal clear for those of us who have actually TRIED IT: food combining does in fact resolve nearly all health problems for every human.

Dr. Hay said it best himself:
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and if any reader is inclined to take issue with the statements heretofore in this little book he is requested before making up any fixed opinion on the subject to adhere faithfully to the indicated diet of the earlier chapter for one month, till he has gone through to the end of the four weeks, and then he is allowed to form his own conclusions, and no one will quarrel with his decisions.

Daphne -- as with vegetarians and vegans, food combiners do need to exercise care in getting all the proper nutrients; however, the statement regarding loss of vitamins and minerals from food moving through too quickly is inaccurate. Proper food combining supplies all the nutrients needed by the body on a daily basis and eliminates the need for any supplementation. Food is more thoroughly digested and all nutrients more completely assimilated due to the higher quality of the food itself and lack of the usual interference of eating miscombined foods together.

Ross' explanation is very simplistic and some of it obviously uninformed, but if people who want to try food combining just make sure to include a wide variety of all colors of fruits and vegetables in their daily or weekly intake, they won't need to worry about missing any nutrients.
