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 feel bloated in the morning and feel the need to go but then end up feeling constipated. Then through the whole day feeling constipated until about 3 when i can actually do my business. And when i do, it comes out small and pebble-like. HELP

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.

Thats OK, pd, many young Aussie apprentices have trouble with that (and their butt-cheeks tend to blister quite easily until they're into around their third year), so the easy way to get the hang of it is to squat over a mirror for the first few times.

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!!

First of all, what is Metamucil,? And you might try shaking to get some of the poo off.

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.)

stank poo's picture

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.

Sometimes when I poop, It flies out of my butt onto the walls, ceiling, and other peoples faces

chickdoc's picture

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.

I dunno if your around anyone who might wanna hurt you but I would ask for blood tests to check for poisons. Yes, I am dead serious. Doctors don't generally think to check things like that they often do not look for zebra's on a horse farm which makes diagnosis very difficult. Please get that checked.
To the rest of you, good grief halarious most of you, all I can do to maintain with cut-ups like you all, oh, wait a minute, guess that's a different subject.

I have the same problem. You get about 3/4 out and thats it. Then you have to wipe all day and don't smell that great. It's gross and i won't leave the house because of it. I have even missed weddings and other events because of it. I had a poor diet and now im eating better and started working out. The problem seems to be getting a little better. But i still have this problem now and then.

I can have a poop but i feel there is still in my colon. If i really push, then small bits come out. The thing that is really bothering me is that i smell like poop most the time.

I'm anorexic and it is alot harder because when you starve and not drink it's harder to make stool. What I've learned is to drink lots of fluids approximately 8 glasses a day, eat alot of fruits and vegetables. Also don't forget alot of fiber. If those don't work. Go to the nearest restaurant that will make you go :)

Oh yeah! Balance your feet on the porcelain rim of the toilet and squat. This helps align the poop chute. (Men, be careful not to shoot piss out onto the floor.) Sometimes you have to hold this position for a few minutes before the Giant Log drops, but trust me ... it will. Be sure to rest your feet on the porcelain rim and not the plastic seat bc the seat will break. Bombs away!

I have been having trouble with my poop since I have my second child. It feels like it wont empty properly. I drunk lactulose prescribed by my doctor but it doesn't really work. I started to eat high fiber foods and lots beans and no meat and drink 2 litres of water when I wake up in the morning wait an hour before i eat my food and walk a mile each day. and now my poop is starting to work. I don't have to push too much my poop just comes out nicely. Thanks to God I prayed to God to help me with this problem and He did I also watched 3ABN its a Seventh Day Adventist website and I learned about healthy eating will help me healthy. Thanks to God

Amazed in Denver's picture

For everyone who suffers from constipation:
I recently came accross a new tip (for me) for solving this problem. It was in a Denver newspaper. It said to try 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 8oz of water. I had been stopped up for two weeks, so I put 2 tablespoons in a glass of water 3 times a day. I also drank lots and lots of plain water. I don't know why this works, but it was the first thing that ever made a big positive difference. Eating fiberous fruit always helped a little bit but metamucil just made things worse. I have had this problem on and off since childhood in spite of being reletively active. If anyone knows why apple cider vinegar helps - please write in and explain it because I have no idea.

the other day I had to poop..thought it was going to be so bad....it got stuck..and when it final came out it was huge! still more..the second half was huge to and took forever to get it out...then the thrid part got really stuck . I had to massage the side of my anus to get it out and it shot out like a cannon ball and made a squirt sound...sure enough there was blood in the water..I wiped and there was blood.
worst poop of my life

Anonymous Coward's picture

Sometimes my poop just starts to emerge then stalls, so I use a rocking back and forward motion which helps a lot. Another great poop mover is to have a full glass of hot water not too hot but hot water, boiled and cooled to managable temperature, gets your bowel going after about 10 minutes. A glass of hot water morning and evening is a great bowel activator. I just had to use Picolax last week for prep for a a barium enema, don't be tempted to use this it is the Pimp Daddy of laxatives/Industrial stregnth lol!

My 16 month old son cant poop, he has been constipated in the past but now is on peglyte so his stool is softer, it makes his poop soft but he still strains and cries when he poops. He tries to poop all day long but nothing much comes out. It helps when I put him on the toilet but (he gets it out) but he cries and shakes with pain. He also has blood in his anus sometimes when he does go....PLease help...we have been to the doctor but another opinion always helps. Thanks

I have the perfect anecdote. I once did this by the way before an evening out and HEY PRESTO it actually worked. I was sitting straining like a bastard and I mean straining....so I went to the cupboard and what did I see....COD LIVER OIL...mmmm !! Now this takes a bit of doing...but take the cap off and give it a great big swig !! I guarantee, you will fix your problem in about 12 mins !! If yuo are still experiencing problems, try the following remedy... mix together half a small glass of cod live oil, 2 x raw eggs. Beat this up and make an anenema. I used an old coke bottle with a rubber hose attached. Squirt this directly into the anus and lie back for 5 mins. Around 6 mins later you will have the urge to defecate like never before. It will release all the blockages and also save you money on toilet paper. By the way, make sure the egg is fresh, you dont want salmonella poisoning in your bottom !! Be fresh and BE CLEAN !!

Poopie -- what are you feeding that poor child? Try giving him more fruits and non-starchy veggies (or fruit/non-starchy veggie baby foods as appropriate for teething).

If you are feeding him anything starchy or sugary before all of his teeth have come in, stop doing that immediately.

Eliminate carbs until he has all his baby teeth, increase the fruit and non-starchy veggie foods, and decrease all other food sources, and you will have done all that is possible to help the little guy heal himself.
