 Does anybody know or have heard of a swollen prostate interfering with BM?
If anyone has heard anything or knows it's not possible please let me know.
Thanx!

I have not personally heard of an enlarged prostate causing interference with bowel movements - but.....

the location of the prostate does make it a candidate in interfering with the rectum. Please go look at the diagram at this link:

http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/prostateenlargement/

See where the prostate is in relation to the rectum? If the prostae became really, really enlarged, in theory it could put pressure on the rectum. That pressure in theory could make it difficult to have a BM. Can I ask why you are asking? In this a problem you are having? Or are you questioning a diagnosis you were given? No need to answer if none of my business...I'm just curious.

Thanks for the reply.

It is a problem that I think I may be having. It has always seemed to me that when ever I have bladder trouble I also have bowel trouble and visa/versa.

Really tired right now, need to get some sleep.

Thanks, :)
