Hey Sean, When I have a BM, I usually have severe pain before I go. Like you when I am done I still feel full and often there is still cramping. It seems if I take a shower or eat oatmeal (or something warm) than I can go again and relieve most of the symptoms. But often mine fade within an hour. It's strange isn't it? You'd expect it to go away right away. I guess it takes awhile for the intestines to stop working so hard or spazzing out.Take care.
