Stuck poop and IBS-M
Posted 16 September 2020 - 06:28 PM
Ive tried Bentyl, Imodium, gas X...nothing helps and at this point Ive nearly lost 10 pounds...not a good thing on my already small frame. its all so upsetting. I will be the first to admit Im a hypochondriac and Im freaking out I have some rare sarcoma or small bowel cancer...or even ovarian cancer! Testing is okay, but not when your someone like me...every test takes what feels like years off my life. Im so afraid they are going to find something or worse, something that turns out to be nothing! I just cant go through it for no good reason.
The feeling of trapped stool higher in the rectum is just awful however I should mention that is goes away as soon as I fall asleep only to start again the next day. Its almost like I can feel the stool loading back there with every bite of food! Its terrible. Also the intestinal issues are just atrocious.
Please, ANY help is appreciated!

I have incomplete evacuation sometimes. My Gastroenterologist suggested Glycerin Suppositories. They seem to help.

I actually have IBS-D but still have incomplete evacuation at times. Even after about of diarrhea.. Go figure. The suppositories don't seem to result in diarrhea, just help getting rid of what is stuck. Of course I'm taking Motofen for diarrhea so sometimes it makes things slow down too much.

I also have tons of gas. Also lots of gurgling. It's like my intestines are in constant turmoil.

Hi @ Cendy99:
I pretty much have the same symptoms , either loose stools and if I am not in the toilet then its gas . And as you mentioned , I'm not sure why , the gas does not smell... or maybe i cannot smell it I don't know.
Probiotics helps with gas reduction .It does not cure you a 100% but it definitely helps. Do try it after you have consulted your GI . It has helped me . Its one of the safest things to try and even if it does no good , it will not do any harm . You will know within 2 weeks if its working for you .
If and when you do try it , do let us know ,so we can post further suggestions if it hasn't worked for you.
Good luck to you !
