You mention that your stools changed after you went on a diet. Have you tried going off your diet? I normally tend towards diarrhea, but when I went on a low-fat diet to lose some weight, I became severely constipated. My mother said that everyone needs some fat in their diet in order to function normally. Since I don't have a gall bladder, I'm already functioning abnormally; my guts seemed to take serious offense with the lack of fat in my diet. If you're on a low fat diet, try going back to a normal diet and see if that helps get you back to at least where you were to start with. I think dieting is a seriously big no-no for anyone with gut problems because it never takes much of a change to set a person off.
And Lil's right, you quite probably have hemmroids. I've bled a tiny bit on occasion after being constipated--especially after several constipated bowel movements. You can have internal hemmroids and never know it until you bleed a little after straining/ having a hard poop.
hey, i never really thought about
going back to how i used to eat.. not only would it set back my weight loss, but i never considered everyone needs fat.. lol. ive been on high protein very low fat diet..
do the hemmies go away after time?
TBH; i havent seen a doctor or anyone else at that about this problem..
the ducolax definitely made me "go" but very very watery..
i just dont know what to do anymore..
