I love this forum! Finally people i can talk to about poo! I have ribbon poop and was wondering if that is something you can end up having surgery for? I feel like because of the scarring it slows down my bowel movements so much. I don't often get D but can go a week without going to the toilet and not because of constipation but slow scarred intestines. This leaves me bloated, grumpy, feeling unwell and just frumpy and of course crampy pain from blocked gas or who knows? I feel like i would be a normal person if those parts of my intestines where gone...can anyone relate, i'm obviously new to this site. cry

Hi cayer welcome to Healing Well .Yes I sure can relate before my resection I was miserable on a regular bases ...I had 2 blockages and finally had to have a resection that has made my life a lot better now. I know the misery of going threw a narrowed TI and it's no fun...Where are your scarring issues at... And yah it is great to talk to others and not be so alone.. lol gail

Thanks for the quick reply, I just feel like i cant go to the toilet without the aid of tablets or drops and feel like my crohn's is pretty well behaved apart from the fatigue and food intolerance. I have tried to talk to my GI about it and although he is a great doctor i just get this look of "yeah that happens when you have crohn's" instead of well these are your long term options. I wondered what the surgery options where for things like that, whether they just like to cut you open if your really sick or whether in fact long term dead bowels as i call them are a serious problem too.

bah ha ha! very funny but i bet that is going to stay with me now...i will never look at it the same again, the playdoh that is! Does scarring from the perianal abscesses and fistulas do this to your doh too? or is it more inside the intestines.

cayer, dont really know where it happens. i always thought it was from narrowing up higher, but then thought it should pack together in the colon and regain some size and roundness. so one might expect it is a rectal type thing.. i have not had this type for many years as i have absolutely no formed poop at all. i have a short piece of bowel left and no time to form anything but diarhea... hey i invite you to check out my website below.. check out the photos .

Hey Randy, I looked at your site. I grew up in Sidney Nebraska and remember the Air Force dudes always being around because of the missiles. There was one rather close to a farm house, and a friend and I used to say that if the missile went off, it would take the house with it wink.

I like Cheyenne too. Almost moved there once. But ultimately, I chose to leave Nebraska for Arizona. Much nicer weather! They even have a brand new Cabela's not far from where I live. Go Cards!

IMO, I think ribbon poop is formed as it exits the body. The poop is soft and easily malleable to any shape and a tight sphincter is going to shape it like a ribbon when it is in that type of soft consistency since it isn't having to 'open wide' for a proper turd, whose mass would force the anus opening to that width.

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC.  No remission.  5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon.  Dx changed to Crohn's.  Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.
