I have a few criteria in determining whether or not a poop is "normal." A) If I have enough time to hike down the undies and grab a magazine, it's a good day - that usually means it'll take a slight push, rather than being reminiscent of a dam bursting open, so I really can't complain. B) If it's the consistency of anything besides pure liquid (i.e, it in any way shape or form resembles anything with a shape or form) that's also a good sign. C) If it is over 50% brown in color, I breathe a sigh of relief. Staring down pieces of salad or crudite is never pleasant (and hardly avoidable if you actually take the time to flush), but it isn't likely to be anything to worry about. In a similar vein, I've been worried for a split second or two when the toilet water is red, before I remember downing that liter of Fruit Punch Gatorade a couple hours ago
Okay, I'm in a silly mood...but the narrowness is likely perfectly normal.
Yeah, this is a very normal abnormality, like Keri said!
As far as the scope goes...you can impress your friends with the name of the procedure (esophagogastroduodenoscopy - pronounced "ess-OFF-uh-go-GAS-tro-doo-odd-en-OSS-cuh-pee" - or you could be an un-nerd and just say EGD) and then with the pretty pictures of your shiny innards! Ech...don't worry, you won't feel a thing.
Goddess0728: any time you need a little poop humor, let me know. I'll probably have to reign in my "verbal diarrhea" once I'm an actual medical student to maintain an air of professionalism. But we still have about six weeks 'til then!
OMG I am so going to hire you as my interior designer!
Sorry for hijacking the thread, ThyGoddess! I'll stop fantasizing about a petting zoo in my medical office now.
