Incomplete function: When one has a bowel movement they assume all fecal material in the rectum has passed. That is true. The bowel however has a storage area where fecal material accumulates before it passes to the rectum Just like the GB is a reservoir for bile the transverse colon may be loaded as the storage age and at the time of a BM has not completely emptied. Might need more time to empty bowel. Not Ca. ...Read more

Consult your physician for a t=rectal exam and anoscopy. ...Read more

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?

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

I am going watery diarrhea with a feeling of incomplete evacuation with no abd distension and minimal bloating and idk if it's an impaction or not.

Tenesmus: The symptom of not being able to empty your bowels completely is called tenesmus. I wonder if you have a straight forward gastroenteritis which could cause these symptoms you report. It sounds like u know all about stool impaction having done your own investigations there. The lack of abd pain and distention makes me think u don't have a blockage. If worsens though, u may need your doc 2 help-call ...Read more

In extreme cases of constipation if a person notices weight gain, how much weight is actually coming from the incomplete evacuation of stool/bowels?

In extreme cases of constipation if a person notices weight gain, how much weight is actually coming from the incomplete evacuation of stool/bowels?

It's hard to tell.: If u know your baseline weight, then u can approximate. Personally when I eat 2 full plates of food, I gain 2-3 lbs (or more if it's yummy filipino food). For constipation, drink lots of water with prune juice, try otc milk of magnesia, (magnesium hydroxide) colace, senokot/ senna, magnesium citrate etc. See a GI dr for any worsening symptom to check for intestinal pathology such as polyp. God bless you! ...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?

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. I am not sure why if you press more comes out but you may want to get a physical exam by your doctor and make sure there isn't a hernia in your abdominal wall. This would be a small probability and most likely your are having healthy BMs. ...Read more

Upper and lower back and flank pain, fewer BM's than normal that are soft but I have to strain to expel them with a feeling of incomplete evacuation?

Possibly IBS: You may have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Patients may have alternating diarrhea/constipation, symptoms of incomplete evacuation, vague generalized abdominal pain/cramping, and mucous in stool. Your upper and lower back/flank pain is not usually part of the symptoms seen and may or may not be related. I would suggest you see your local doctor to be evaluated ...Read more

Watery diarrhea with a feeling of incomplete evacuation. I digitally checked for stool in rectum and found none, but I still feel an urge to defecate.

See GI for testing: There may be a number of reasons for you to have this sensation, also known as tenesmus. Tenesmus can be caused by one of a number of inflammatory bowel diseases or other types of colitis. The most common forms of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. For other types of colitis, infectious would be the most common. See a GI specialist for addition testing, including colonoscopy. ...Read more

Celiac + what else?: Celiac disease (cd) is an immune-mediated enteropathy that inflames and destroys the lining of the small intestine.

29 yr old female with gerd. Now has loose, infrequent (2-3 days) yellowish brown colour stool with incomplete evacuation bloat, gas, odor. Any causes?

29 yr old female with gerd. Now has loose, infrequent (2-3 days) yellowish brown colour stool with incomplete evacuation bloat, gas, odor. Any causes?

Many possibilities: This is unlikely to have anything to do with your gerd unless you are being treated for helicobacter pylori with antibiotics (which may touch off things like cl. Diff colitis). This may be viral, or giardia (an amoeba), or bacterial, or rarely may signal onset of inflammatory bowel disease. If it does not get better quickly (24-48 hrs) please see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?

Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?

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. So I suggest you raise these questions with the doctor who diagnosed IBS then follow her advice. Good luck! ...Read more

Incomplete evacuation, straining, gas build up, sudden abdominal pains, frequent urge to urinate, bloating, headache, fatigue, loss of libido? Could it be ibs?

Incomplete evacuation, straining, gas build up, sudden abdominal pains, frequent urge to urinate, bloating, headache, fatigue, loss of libido? Could it be ibs?

Maybe / maybe not: Ibs is a diagnosis of exclusion. The keys to your answer: do symptoms change, duration of distress, ; recent evaluation? Do you awakening from sleep due to pain, are your symptoms not intermittent but ever present or actually worsening, have bleeding/fever--if so then it is unlikely you just have ibs. In such a case, further evaluation is warranted to identify the correct diagnosis ; treatment. ...Read more

Incomplete bowel evacuation after every poo and constant feeling of gas in rectum and horrible intestinal noises, is there a remedy.?

Try: Eating lots of fruits and veggies and drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Avoid bananas, rice, applesauce, tea, toast, and cheese as these are constipating foods. Try Natural Calm as a laxative starting with 2 teaspoons a night. The raspberry flavor is best. You can go up or down on the amount until it is just right for you. Have you had a good medical exam to be sure nothing is wrong to cause it ...Read more

Have symptoms of irritable bowel Recently underwent colonoscopy which came negative. However multiple times toilet, incomplete bowel evacuation feel, soft flat stools persist. Request advise.

Irritable bowel: If your gastroenterologist is comfortable that enough work up has been done to rule out other causes and feels that IBS is the culprit, it is time to start trying to treat it. Adding extra fiber to the diet is a good start. There are medications such as anti-spasmodics which tend to work well in some situations also. Talk to your G.I. doctor about what is the next step. Good luck. ...Read more
