I used to have diarrhea and lots of farts.Lately the diarrhea is totally gone. Sometimes, maybe once every few weeks I get broken stools, in bits. But most of my stools are fine. Now...what I am about to say is gross so I apologize but... a lot of my stools are currently very thick....as in huge! I never had this in my life. When I poop is like a dinosaur poop. First I thought it was a form of constipation...because it was coming out so hard but in fact it's coming out hard because it is just huge and cannot get through. Is this considered to be normal? Before I had IBS I never got this huge stools coming out of me...don't know, is just weird.... I know it might sound silly, but am beginning to have a problem because it's hurting my rectum when it comes out.
