Kristin asks:

How come I ALWAYS poo little tiny pellets? Is there something wrong with me??? Sometimes they float.





Kristen ,

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately, though I myself have had rabbit-like pellety poo, I can't find out why. I subscribe to the theory that it is due to not drinking enough water. I hardly ever drink water.

Pellet poo is not a problem for rabbits at all. Except that they don't live very long. Hmmmm. I might want to think about this one some more.

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?

Kristin:

My grandpappy was an itenerant evangelical minister with a travelling medicine show. I remembering him telling me about a lot of folks in Hazard County, Kentucky who had this poop pellet syndrome and the local doctors thought is was related to coal dust. The most popular remedy of the time was a dose of turpentine mixed with corn liquor and vaseline. The patient took big doses of the mixture orally, and doushed with it anally.

Well, anyway, my grandpappy did not agree with the local doctors, and set out to prove their remedy was actually causing a lot of sin in the community rather than curing PPD (the pellet poop disease). Papaw held several tent revivals at which he exhorcized dozens of poop demons from the ailing residents of Hazard County. In every case, the demons were driven out of the host body accompanied by thunderous claps of flatulence and copious clouds of sulfurous gastric emissions.

Once the demons were driven from the intestines of the Pellet Poopers, their digestive habits returned to normal, and much to their delight, they never pooped pellets again.

Kristin, I know how embarassing PPD must be for you, and I strongly suggest you find a Pentecostal preacher who knows how to exhorcize IDs (intestinal demons). Best of luck, hon. And don't be embarrassed when those hairy little demon monkeys fly outta your butt at the prayer meeting, the rest of your life without them will be worth it.
Peace in the pooper.

I have pellet poo all the time. It's nothing to worry about. Don't get so bent out of shape about the shape of your poo.... Unless it comes out spikey, I suppose.

I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the whole time!

I think pellets are a blessing! I've often watched goats with great envy when their sphincter opens up and those slipery little balls just fall right out with no mess. I myself am a million wiper so I appreciate a nice clean dismount. There's nothing like a solid black slimy log shooting straight out your ass like a snickers bar.

I used to have pellet poo's when I would have a bout of IBS.

Anyone with this condition, my advice to you is:

A: Drink lots of water
B: Make sure to eat a coarse diet.
C: Do an occasional coloc cleanse/ detox.
D: Try to avoid OTC, laxatives, as they can lead to "lazy bowel".
E: Cut down on refined / processed foods.

Poop is generally malleable, just form it into a figure of someone you don't mind shitting on, like Prarie Doggin, or Chief Thunderbutt, or myself.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

Bilge is right. I have had spikey poops in the past. The points and sharp edges were too sharp and pointy for my dainty little button hole.

I usually have that problem after consuming large quantities of concertina wire.

As a student in the medical field, I can tell you that your 'poop' should NOT be little pellets. It should be a long piece, not runny and not too firm. The size and shape of your colon is how your poop should look. :]

No my dear, I meant wire. The concertina WINES are very rare as the harvesting of the grapes causes massive injuries to the pickers. They usually die of blood loss after picking a few coils. Might just be a good vampire elixir tho...

Oh and AC, I'm quite disturbed to find out that my colon must look like the inverse of a bowl of chili.

For someone having pellet-shaped little turdinos (turdini?), if they are still coming out with sufficient volume, the problem must not be too severe. If there is tiny volume, and all there is is tiny little pellets, then you need more water, more fiber, likely more exercise. Your poo should look more like a banana than a pea.

AC you make it sound so easy. Well, it is not. Really, the medical field does not have a handle on poop problems. Pooping pain and constipation is ignored if it is not cancer.

Whenever I poop it comes out in 10-15 pieces. Is this a problem?

I'd love to have a single poop with no hassle.

My poop is pellets in 10-15 pieces. I drink plenty of water and make sure not to mix it in my diet, as water doused with food can cause improper bowel movements and improper functioning of organs. I have had it my whole life!! The cure:

When i eat lots of vegetables and brown rice and beans and water and i have to eat LOTS of it.

Quite frequently when I am pooping I have the sensation that one long log is being extruded but when I look in the commode I discover many short chunks floating about. I don't feel alarmed by this but wonder what causes it. Does my anus stammer, is my poo fragile, does God really make little green apples, so many questions!

If I use Colonex (R). A colon cleansing product once a year (it includes a tea that acts like a lazative) will I eventually get lazy bowel?

ITs the frequent and consistent use of these products that leads to a "lazy bowel". Once a year, I think, is nothing to be concerned with.

Chief T, to answer your question from last April, at least in my case, my poop usually exits in what feels like one long piece but very rarely ends up that way. When I used to have harder poop (before current water/meds regime), the whole mass hung often together as a single turd; but now, even if it feels that way, it seems to come out slowly enough and to be soft enough that gravity works its way. As soon as enough is hanging out for its own weight to make it drop off, it drops, even though it doesn't feel like a separate piece while emerging. Occasionally if it emerges fast enough it won't have time to separate and ends up as a single spiral piece. On the other hand, if poop is too hard, it may feel like one piece coming out but break off little hard chunks as it emerges, doubtless from no longer having the pressure of the colon holding it together. Sometimes it's fun to think about physics.

My 57 year old wife has a large Gallstone which she is having removed along with her Gallbladder in the next 3/4 weeks. She seems to be losing a lot of weight - could be the low fat diet but also goes a poop a lot. Her poop seems normal to look at. Any thoughts.

I often feel like I have to poop really bad, but little to nothing comes out. Then, an hour later, it'll happen again. This repeats many times a day. why? I used to just take one big poop a day.

crazycolon420, I'm not trying to alarm you and your symptom may be related to something else but, years ago this was one of the symptoms my brother-in-law experienced before he was diagnosed with colon cancer.

Anytime you have drastic changes in bowel habits you should discuss them with a doctor. Your poop and pooping habits speak volumes about your health.

My brother-in-law is a cancer survivor because he was treated before his situation became too advanced. Go see a doctor, and good luck.
