What are possible causes of sensation of incomplete evacuation of bowls? I'm worried I have colon cancer.
Incomplete function: When one has a bowel movement they assume all fecal material in the rectum has passed. That is true.

I have been on Zantac (ranitidine) for 14 days and I have been constipated and bloated with incomplete evacuation. Is it the Zantac (ranitidine) and do I stop it?
Yes it can: As with most things in life, on the one hand but then on the other hand. The purpose in giving Zantac (ranitidine) is to reduce the amount of acid in the child's stomach which may reduce other symptoms he is exhibiting (coughing, etc.). He can be constipated for other reasons too (rice cereal, oatmeal, lots of milk). You can insert glycerine suppositories. In any case, it will pass. True independent of age ...Read more

If worsens though, u may need your doc 2 help-call ...Read more

I usually poop 1-2 perday and within 2 hrs of taking food why is it so and putting little pressure on abdomen push it out its incomplete evacuation?
Bowel Movements: Having 1-3 bowel movements (BM) per day is normal and healthy. There is a gastrocolic (Stomach-colon) reflex that occurs after meals causing a BM after meals.

This would be a small probability and most likely your are having healthy BMs. ...Read more

Typical IBS symptoms: As you suspect, these symptoms indeed are consistent with irritable bowel syndrome. But they aren't particularly suggestive of proctitis (inflmmation of the rectum). Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn's disease) can cause similar symptoms as IBS, and also can cause proctitis.
