Hi,
 
This is tough for me to ask but, oh well. A few months back I had an obstruction and was put on Entocort.  Ever since then I cannot seem to clean my bottom.  I feel like I need to whipe for 20 minutes.
I am not sure why this is.  I have not really had any diarrhea since the medication.  Any tips would be appreciated.

You could try wiping with wet-wipes...you can even get travel packs to carry with you.

Thanks.  I will just need to figure out how to carry them around with me being a guy and all and not having a purse.

How about a backpack or messenger bag?  Those are pretty cool and seem to be an acceptable version of a "man purse."

I sometimes tuck something (like wet wipes) flat, up against my leg, into my socks. If you're wearing long trousers no-one will know and they wont fall out.

You could put a couple in a zip lock bag and put it in your pocket.  Just have to remember to buy the flushable ones.

Thanks guys.  I can't believe some of the issues that come up with this disease.  I at least want to feel clean and not think I smell or something.  I hope I did not grose anybody out.

I honestly don't think there's a single thing that can gross me out anymore...or surprise me.

If we were still capable of being grossed out we would gross ourselves out. Nothing is out of bounds here as long as it is supportive and in keeping with the spirit of healing well.

Here's another idea. Being a guy it will be a little bit more difficult for you, but there is this thing called perianal bottles. Women usually get them when they have babies. It's a bottle with a nozzle on it. What you do is fill it with warm water, sometimes even salt water if things aren't going so well doan there, and then just sit up on the toilet and spray down there. You might be able to ask a close female relative to get one if your interested. I found that because I was wiping all the time I would get a fissure and tag, a tear from my tailbone all the way down to my anus, sorry not to be too open with ya. It takes off the pressure down there. I also use feminine flushable wipes. They make you feel nice and fresh and rejuvinated. Walmart carries a great brand called "Fresh'nup". Well hopes this has helped you.

You've been given some good suggestions. "We" call the residue on our underwear "skid marks" (just to add a little humor).
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
