No, it is definitely not gas, I am sure it is my stool I can feel. It is really tender to touch there too, but only at that time, other times, it is fine to the touch. I had a colonoscopy just over a year and a half ago, to rule out Crohn's, it seemed pretty cut and clear I had it, as did my father, but nope, it only turned up some other bowel issues, but not Crohn's, thank goodness. I was not having this issue when I saw my GI specialist, so maybe should make another appt and tell her about this latest occurence. Funny though, my bowel movements have never been so good and so regular!
