You are not keeping enough water and bulk in your colon. Make a diary of the foods u eat and please have plenty of water throughout the day.

Sure, but...


Any recent exposures, travel, ingestants, new drugs, stress?The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. may result from inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, and functional disorders. Directed lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies are appropriate, esp. if diarrhea persists.

Sounds like


Constipation. I would recommend miralax 4 capfuls in 20 oz water twice a day for three days with dulcolax suppository in rectum twice a day for one day. If pain increases or you do not pass stool seek immediate care.

Do not wear bear bells! In Alaska bear bells are found in some bear poop. :)

If you


are seeing solid pieces off stool, could be a problem. Tell the nurses when you arrive. A few enemas might be able to salvage the prep and colonoscopy

About once every month when I poop I find small to large amounts of blood in the toilet. It doesn't hurt coming out and it is bright red. I'm 20, male?

My poop come out in like a string sometimes what is that?

Answered by:
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics
 Cancer Anus Bowel Bowel movement Rectum Feces

If only occasionally


If poop comes out like a string only occasionally, that is less worrisome, and may just be the consistency (hardness; water content) of the poop and the amount of relaxation of the anus (tight anus causes smaller diameter poop, if soft poop), at the moment of the bowel movement. But, if string-like poop happens often, one has to make sure there is not a cancer or blockage in the anus or rectum.

Feces

Please don't place


q tips up your rectum. Hydrate really well with water. Consider a mild laxative (Senna or docussate). Exercise. Get in plenty of bran fiber. Occasionally, when stool is really impacted - it needs to be dis-impacted by a medical person. Good luck.

What does it mean when my poop is to big to come out my butt and bleeds a little?

You are likely


constipated. Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active if possible. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that can be taken orally to help pass retained fecal matter. Get eval for bleeding.

Blood in Stool


Simple Hemoccult test in office after a rectal exam or stool test for blood will tell whether you really have blood in stool or not. If positive, it may be because of colon/rectal polyp, hemorrhoid etc, etc.
