Do peanuts harden or loosen or do nothing to the stool?

Do peanuts harden or loosen or do nothing to the stool?

Enjoy the answer!: The answer depends on how many you eat. You should keep a stool diary. Vary the number of peanuts eaten and record the stools. In order to avoid bias you should have someone else record the stool caliber/consistency: you just eat the peanuts. After about a month you should have a good idea. Of course every other aspect of your daily routine and diet and exercise etc must remain fixed for the month. ...Read more

Can you provide an exhaustive list of all possible causes of crescent-shaped thin stool (excl. Rectal cancer b/c I just had lar a month ago)?

Short list: Assuming your anastomosis is fine and not stenotic the most common cause is your muscles around your anal canal (schinter muscles and puburectalis) are not relaxing appropriately during defecation (animus). The best test for this is a voiding proctogram but would wait 6 to 8 weeks from your surgery (lar) to have this done. ...Read more

For a past few days, my stool is coming out like small pebbles, nut-shaped, dark in colour initially, then its normal, pain in rectum before defecation?

Small stool.: Your description of your stool shape of small pebbles and pain before defecation is likely secondary to lack of fiber and hydration. The colon will absorb a large of amount of fluid by the time you have bowel movement (only about 100cc-200cc left inside the stool). Suggest to drink adequate amount of water, high fiber diet, and take fiber supplement (citrucel 1 tablespoon in 8 oz of water, daily. ...Read more

Get a checkup done: You should have a physician examination done in order to find out the cause of your testicle abnormality. Any nodularity makes me suspect something is serious and needs to be diagnosed properly. A specialist- Urologist consultation is another option that you can explore. But a PCP can help you get started with a complete evaluation of this problem. ...Read more
