Genny-Aye Aye Aye! First I laughed - then I felt your pain - I think Women have a bug about pooping at work as it is and then to have that happen. I have sat there and held it until the place was cleared - talk about a feat!Have you ever been tested for celiac disease? Sometimes people think it is IBS and it is celiac - my guess was the opposite

Yes, just an hour ago! Mine was one continuous flow of D (well, not quite D, just excessively loose with absolutely NO form to it). It not only came above the water line, it looked like a mound of elephant dung! It didn't smell, though. Since I've been drinking these "greens" my gas and BMs are not very smelly at all. This is good because I have a hard time going at work, too, but since I know it won't smell too bad I am not hung up on it anymore.

LOL! That's a new one. Now the really bad thing is I usually don't have time to read more than a handful of posts on here, but if someone says it's gross, I just about always read it out of gross curiousity! Anyone else do that?Anyhow, I've also had the "cow patty" load in the toilet...never all in one string tho!
Maybe it's because I don't have that Texan blood...I used to do that a lot more before I was diagnosed, when I would have a D attack, then take enough Immodium to stop me up, then when that wore off or something triggered me, I'd have a massive BM...it'd start out solid, and sometimes those hard stools rocketed out if there were some angry intestines propelling other stuff toward the colon too... Hello, fissure! Then it'd get gradually softer, til it was completely unformed. And there'd be this PILE in the toilet...I couldn't believe that much poop was in me! And usually I'd try to flush partway through, too and still what a pile!
Now when I take Immodium, I usually wait til most of the stuff is out to take it, and use a smaller dose to just slow the intestines down, or stop them temporarily. But when I have had to take a larger dose and gotten rebounding, I fill the toilet again... I really try to avoid that now, because it's rather uncomfortable, often painful, until that floodgate opens... it's not that I'm C, it's that the cramping/rapid motility has started, and there is more ahead of it than usual!

Alright,I'll chime in on this 'great' subject.After being C for around 3 weeks (my longest ever), I resorted a double dose of ex-lax to clear things up. Well, I had around a hundred servings of fruits/vegetables in my digestive tract (I went on a high insoluble fiber diet for two weeks - bran cereal, salads, etc) and somehow it all held.Well, about 5 hours after I took it, no effect, so I head to run some quick errands - while driving, it 'comes' - I pull over, whip out my porta-potty (I had tinted windows) and bam!In one steady D attack, I fill up the little porta porry and a big gulp cup and make a huge mess in my back seat. I lost double digit pounds with that one attack - it had to be several gallons worth. I think that tops anything so far here

LOL I've had this one too. I wrote a post about it called "Snake Poop" and you might find some more help there. Since I'm C I happen to invite those types of poop. They come out a lot easier and are lots more comfy for us C-types. Not fun to flush sometimes, though. I got mine from Miralax, I think. Miralax and Fibercon. Hang in there! (pun intended)-Amy

Yep...I've done that frequently. If I am in a public place, I try to flush periodically to avoid any smell. I don't know if I have had a 5 footer but close
. Being predominately C, I am happy when I get these bowel cleansings as long as I don't get the D afterwards. I feel a million pounds lighter afterwards. I too am amazed at how my body could hold so much at one time.P.
