Hi everyone -I'm a 31 yr old male that has been suffering with the same problem for years now. Basically, I used to be a once-per-day kind of guy. Now, it's 3-4 times a day, feels more urgent than normal, and it comes out fairly loose (but not diarrhea), and at the end, it gets stuck in my rectum. I can strain and bounce and shift side to side and sometimes get another tiny piece out, but I can't get it all out, even if I strain, and then it hurts like you wouldn't believe when I walk around or even adjust in my seat. Been to a variety of doctors...--Had a colonoscopy 5 years ago when this first started, didn't show anything. Still, I'm scared to death of colon cancer (I have had a change in bowel habits that results in going more frequently, sometimes later in the day they can be pencil thin, etc.), so I'm going to get another one soon.--Don't have hemorrhoids--Positive for bacterial overgrowth on two different hydrogen breath tests. Taken rifaximin twice with no improvement or change during or after treatment.--Positive for yeast on Metemetrix test. No improvement after 3 weeks of nystatin. Got re-tested, still positive for yeast. --Positive for hookworm - treated with mebendazole and no improvement or change in symptoms. --Positive for rapid transitNot lactose intolerant, don't have celiac disease. Don't have rectocele. No blood in stool. Any ideas on what else I can do? I feel like I have all of these problems that have been diagnosed, but the standard "solutions" have had no effect whatsoever. Should I try Vivonex to see if I can get rid of the bacterial overgrowth? My GI says that wouldn't help because I wasn't any better on the rifaximin. The only thing that helps is to do an enema to clear out the "stuck" stool. Then I feel ok until the next bowel movement. Thanks for any help anyone can offer. Please, anything, I'm at my wits end.
