Good luck. ...Read more

Common: The most common type of food to be seen undigested in the stool is actually vegetables. They often are very high in fibers that we do not have enzymes in our digestive system to degrade them with. The fiber could also be causing gas pains. This can be a very normal finding. If you have accompanying frequent diarrhea, unintentional weight loss, or other stool changes, consult your doctor. ...Read more

Just a thought:
but the end of the bowel movement represents the stool which has been in the bowel the "longest" ! The large bowel not only "stores" the feces but also absorbs water from the material "delivered" to it by the small bowel! The hardness = "dryest"
Just a thought and hope it helps!

I have pain when I have a bowel movement which causes blood when wiping. I think there is some blood in my stools but its hard to tell.
I am a bit concerned about my bowel movement lately. My stool have changed to a ball-like shape x 6wks. Its not hard and i usually go once a day.
More fibre: It sounds like you just need a bit more fibre in your diet.There's no blood, no constipation, and the stools not hard - if it were, i'd suggest better hydration. So, add whole grain breads and cereal, fruits, and vegetables. You could try a bulk laxative, such as fibre con or equivalent - not to help you move your bowels, but to add bulk and consistency. Good luck. ...Read more

Chronic constipation: Large-caliber stools mean that your son's colon has enlarged from long-standing constipation & that referral to a pediatric gastroenterologist is warranted. A " clean-out" has to be done before MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) will work. After it's done, he'll need treatment for at least 6 mos. To reduce the risks of medical & behavioral complications of chronic constipation. See his pediatrician first. ...Read more
See below: Any time you sit on the toilet, gravity as well as the pushing that occurs with a normal bowel movement, moves blood into the hemorrhoidla veins. This causes them to swell. To improve the pain, do not spend too much time on the toilet and use baby or moist wipes. Avoid toilet paper - it only irritates the hemorrhoids more. ...Read more

Why would someone have blood in stool? I don't have insurance and can't afford a doctor. If I had a hard bowel movement right before, and it stops after, I should be ok, right?
Blood in the stool: Can be due to many things but also, sometimes we can get fooled by material that looks like blood. If you are having hard stools, the likely reason why you may have blood is either hemorrhoids or a rectal fissure. Eliminating the constipation can help stop the ectal fissurs from reforming but hemorrhoids are another matter. However, there are other more significant causes. Still try to be seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Anal fissure: although you need an examination to confirm the diagnosis, you are describing classic symptoms for an anal fissure. It can often be treated conservatively by dietary modification. Generally it's recommended that you have a high-fiber diet with adequate water hydration. After bowel movements try shower instead of wiping to prevent further trauma. Surgery for Botox only if this management fails ...Read more
