Gypsy asks:

My doctor told me I was constipated and said he could actually feel the stool by working my stomach with his fingers. Is that true or was he rooster pooping me?






Gypsy,

Thanks for the question!

It all depends. Was he naked and alone in the room with you while "working" your stomach and its poo contents?

Or was he all professional and clinical about it?

You COULD be so constipated it could be felt from the outside, but it would have to be a hell of a waiting dook.

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?

Doctor Adams got this same question some time ago. He said what he did was to use a 3" diameter, foot-long section of PVC pipe to insert up the ass of his "full of shit" patients.

Then Adams said he would send his pet parrot up the tube to examine the constipated patient's loaded colon. The parrot would return and report to Dr. Adams regarding the quantity and quality of feces lodged in the patient.

Apparently, Adams had this parrot so well-trained that he could get him to retreave a stool sample as well.

Unfortunately Dave has removed all the great material regarding the wonderful Dr. Adams ... ARGGG.

Peace in the Parrotchute.

and relaxes his or her tummy, it is not too difficult for a doctor or nurse to feel whether that person's intestines have poop in them or not.

If you can do this on yourself, you can give yourself a tummy massage, which can actually help get the bowels working if you're a bit stagnant.

Girls can feel their poop from the... inside. I don't know about the outside.

I was wondering why does poop stink and why do people laugh when you fart?

I had a girl friend that would take a week between poops. You could feel the solidity of her abdomen, when she was particularly full of shit.

Yes, you can feel your intestine if you are going to take a bowl movement, especially at night. I know I went to my gynocologist and asked her why my right side was raised up and i feel an almost tube like structure, she said because I am skinny that I would be able to feel it and if I massaged the area in a few hours I would most likely be able to have a bowl movement. Note I do weigh 110 lbs.

I'm a chick. I can feel an impending poo from the outside. I feel it on the lower left side of my abdomen. It's a solid tube-like thing. Then I crap and it's gone.

I can feel the poop on the outside and i can feel it on the outside as it's comming out of me also.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Yeah I can feel it. It'll be like a week since I have pooped last and my tummy begins to stick out weird and get hard lumps. I can actually feel the poo in my colon which is kind of cool but also gross. Then one day (hopefully soon) I just poop it all out. and there is nothing left. However I am very thin, I need to gain weight and eat much more fiber. This crazy pooping trend I have developed is not very comfortable.

The only thing I've ever been able to feel from the outside is distention from gas. I can feel the bloat, and the lessening of it as I fart it out. Never felt poop from the outside, probably because it never stays in for days and is fairly thin and smooth as it comes out.

Hell, yes, it can be felt from the outside. I went to the quack's once because I felt a bit sick, and had diarrhoea. He felt my stomach, and said that I was constipated!
Sez I: No, that can't be right- I can back 'em out with the best of 'em.
Sez he: Maybe so, but you're still constipated.
Sez I: But I'm squirting Yarra water!
Sez he: Yes, the lower intestine is a wondrous thing. It can accommodate an enormous amount of solid poo, and it's walls can swell to several times their original size. It can hold all this impacted poo, and still allow a small passage for the squirty diarrhoea to pass by. So you can be constipated and have the squirts at the same time.
Sez I: Shit, eh?

A good doc can even feel the spasms in the large colon on palpation. That is, if you have a spastic colon. On thin people the poop can be felt, as well as, be seen on the outside of the abdomen. Even a fart bubble can be seen and felt on the outside in thin people.
Anon coward go to the docc for the constipation. Try some docusate sodium (generic for Colace) until you are seen only after you take a laxative or an enema to get the already accumulated hard stuff out.

I'm moderately fat, so I can't feel my colon from massaging my abdomen, but when I'm constipated my abdomen swells up so that the waist of my pants is tighter. After I take a nice big poop suddenly it's looser. I can easily imagine that in a thinner person it would be possible to feel a full colon from the outside. The vet does this with my cats all the time.

I had this like v shaped bulge near my hip area like in the center above my vagina and I think it's because I am so backed up, i haven't had a real real bowel movement on my own without sups or laxatives. why is there a v shaped bulge!?

I've been scratching my nuts for years now (not constantly- just occasionally), and I've never felt a V shaped thing in there.
Any man with V-shaped testicles had better get hisself to a doctors, and damn quick.

I have palpated the colon very easily in all of my slim, relaxed female patients. If a girl is slender and keeps her tummy muscles relaxed and soft, you can feel many of the abdominal structures.

AC ... As you can see by this attached picture your intestines run from your stomach to your asshole, this takes them behind the bellybutton of a normal person.

I get that to...I'm very thin as well and I get constipated. when I lay flat and massage my stomach I can feel knots in my lower left abdomen, then I'll poop and its gone.

I am scared I have like six bulges in my stomach that is poop. I haven't pooped for two weeks and every time I try it's too big to come out. What do I do besides going to the doctor?

Sorry to have to be the one to tell you Anonymous with six bulges but your future looks bleak. It wouldn't be so bad if the number of bulges was five or less. Now is the time for you to donate your worldly possessions to a worthy charity. I suggest the Hillbilly Relief Fund. Just sent everything to me and I will pass it on.
