Hi,

I just have a really quick question. Does anyone know if a bowel movement should be in one, sausage shaped piece (which pinches off properly)? If it doesnt pinch off properly, but sort-off breaks off (and you can't get the rest out), is that normal?

Thanks for the help

That is what you want, but there is no really normal. Mayok, posted the bristol stool scale for you, but people can have all kinds, depending on a lot of factors.

So yes its pretty normal if that happens.
