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?

ive had troubles shitting for about the past 2 weeks now. ive cleared my bowels with laxatives and an enema twice and once respectively and have started eating a lot of fibre and drinking a lot of water. even after several days of high fibre intake i still can not bring myself to poop. I almost constantly feel the urge to go but after getting up and sitting on the toilet it goes away completely and no matter how hard i strain i can not force it out. im going to my doctor in a day or two but some earlier answers would still be helpful

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.

I found the only way to eat: Food Combining, where you eat what you want, but only one food at a time. When you combine all kinds of foods, and liquids, all at once, trouble happens because every food requires a different digestive juice, and when you mix them all up, you get allergies, sinus, mucus, bad breathe, skin & pooping, troubles. That's right -even allergies disappear. You are what you eat - and how you eat it. Poop is the last thing that goes on and it tells you what is happening. Look into food combining, which is also called The Mono Diet, and The Hygenic Diet. Eat this way and you won't even know you have a stomach - no pains, fullness, gas, weird pooping, etc. ALL your problems will go away. Our bodies produce tons of mucus when we jam proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, etc. together. They should be eaten by themselves, then you will see your health improve. The mucus acts like glue to hold all the tiny particles of food together and drinking cold liquids hardens up the stools, so drink warm water on an empty stomach 30-60 mins. BEFORE meals. Never drink any liquid with food - causes dry skin and poop problems. I used to get a 'nudge' to poop, then sat on the thunderbucket for only 1 second, it all came out softly and started to flake apart because there was no mucus to hold it together - and absolutely NO odor at all. I ate this way for eight months and was the healthiest man alive -had tests taken by a doctor and he was amazed.
You eat fruit for breakfast, a salad for lunch with a carbohydrate, and a salad for dinner with a protein.

I've read about the concept of not combining carbs and proteins; it's been around for a long time. It's not new. In the eighties Jim and Marilyn Diamond got famous for the Fit For Life diet and books. My mother used this concept of eating and lost a great deal of weight, but she also got tired. After being researched, many scientists and doctors have disagreed about food combining.

Many people who use food combining end up losing weight, but they also lose vitamins and minerals because the food goes through them too quickly. Diarrhea and gas are other results. If anyone thinks to try this type of diet, please be sure to have the diet approved by your health care professional to make sure you're not going to be at risk for vitamin deficiencies or gastro-intestinal upset. There are quite a few quack diets out there. Protect yourself.

All the way through my youth I was never regular, until I realized that taking a #2 can be VERY enjoyable if you eat the right items. You don't even have to eat like a health nut, just lay off the cheese if you're feeling irregular. Two days ago I ate an entire box of cheese itz and I did NOT shit yesterday as a result. So what I did today is, I ate two salads for lunch and dinner, stocked with peppers, onions, mushrooms, ham, boiled eggs, pine nuts, cranberries and basil vinaigrette. I just swallowed down like 3 tbsp full of mineral oil, I just drunk a cup of water with 3 scoops of metamucil, I took two stool softeners and I'm letting this smooth move steep for about 10 more minutes even though it's already been sitting here for an hour. Umm yeah, tomorrow I'm going LAY the MAYHEM down on the toilet. It's going to be the brown second coming of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Tomorrow I'm going to eat a huge ass bowl of Fiber One too, and if that doesn't happen well, I'll just eat bowls of that stuff through out the entire day and LAY OF THE CHEESE UNTIL I CUT THE CHEESE. Oh yeah, Rice & Beans will do the trick, I'm definitely going to serve up some REALLY spicy rice & beans tomorrow, it's so freaking on. To all you haters and constipators out there, READ THIS POST THOROUGHLY AND ALL YOUR INTESTINAL ISSUES WILL BE ANNIHILATOR.

Well...here I am again with my radical ideas as to why I don't believe in food combining. "Health via Food" was printed in 1932 and was written by a man, William Howard Hay, who graduated from the New York University School of Medicine in the year 1891. Vast amounts of knowledge have been added to the literature that describes the working of the human body and the role played by nutrition since those dates.

It is interesting to note that the countries with the longest life expectancies in todays modern world do not practice food combining. The Japanese eat large amounts of starch (white rice) at virtually every meal. Seafood appears often on their menus (protein) and is eaten along with a great variety of other complex carbohydrates. In spite of this they enjoy one of the world's longest and healthiest life spans.

I was amused by Dr Hay's observations in Chapter six that link disease and crime. He states that healthy diets help curb criminal behavior. If this were true we could shrink our prison populations by simply adjusting the diets of our incarcerated for a few years and then admonish them to, "re-enter society and sin no more."

The human body produces different enzymes to aid in the digestion of a multiplicity of foods. You can, for the most part, shovel everything in at once and your body can take care of it.

If you have questions about your diet your best bet is to see a registered dietitian or nutritionist. My dietitian at the Veterans Administration has a degree from Vanderbilt University and advises me that variety in your food is the best road to good health. He also says eat a variety at each meal.

Some animals have very specialized diets, while others are less selective. Like the second group (but more so), humans are omnivorous, capable of eating veggies, grains, meat, and whatever out there is even marginally edible (fast foods, soft drinks, etc.). In my life I have had meals of a wide variety of descriptions, and the poop is pretty similar after all of them; sometimes softer, sometimes harder, the occasional rare blowout; but it's all poop, and my intestines don't seem to differentiate (except within a fairly narrow range) among the various foods that compose their fodder.

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.

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. :)

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...

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.

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.

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.

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...

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).

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.

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.

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.”

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
Dr. says IBS

any help would be appreciated

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.

JUST WONDERIN??'s picture

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.
