I know that so much of this is hard to write about, but I haven't seen questions like these yet, and I hesitate to pursue the answers, but I am certain someone here may have information on one of them. Thanks in advance for reading.
1. I was told it is not "medically possible" to urinate while defecating. Well, one of my little "cures" to fixing a less severe bout of C is to drink a lot of fluids and not relieve myself instantly... and sometimes this works to make me feel the urge for a BM. Is this weird? Because it has worked for the last few years on many occasions, and often the two methods of excretions happen at the same time for me, even when I don't do it on purpose. I can only imagine what someone might think of this.
2. I had 3 doses of the Hep B vaccination, as my job requires. The test came back to say my antigen (or antibody? I forget...) level was low and so I need another booster shot and the same test to see if I am now immune... now my questions are that 1- could IBS be at all linked to a deficiency in my liver... or 2- could my problems be liver-related as opposed to the original IBS dx?
3. I feel like I constantly have a UTI. Before I was dx'd with IBS, I had several UTI/kidney infections within a year or two... and I feel like I have it again. Urine is cloudy, waking up 3-5 times a night to urinate, pain in the RLQ and under my ribs on the right side... These problems are the reason I was given a laparoscopy in the first place only to find adhesions on my cecum which eventually led to the dx I have now... does anyone else have UT problems? I'm drinking cranberry juice again, as I am so tired of being in a clinic/hospital getting test after test... ever just break down a little with the thoughts of "if I'm really to blame for my physical problems why do these things take me by surprise so often?" and "No one can be this sick all the time with different things and not have a real underlying problem... and since I'm told I don't, I don't want to waste anyone elses' time on fixing me... even though I know the UA would come back positive for white blood cells."
Well, along with asking some questions, I guess I needed to vent a little... I thank all who have any answers to my questions, and hope everyone who reads this is doing as well as possible.

1) I have certainly peed while attempting to have a bowel movement. I can't swear that I've been releasing stool while urinating, but the two have been certainly close enough to make it seem like you can do both at once. Feels like you are, anyways. This especially tends to happen if I need to strain some to have a BM.

2) Not everyone responds to vaccinations; it could just be that it didn't take for you. My grandmother said when she got a smallpox vaccination, she never developed the tell-tale blister (the one that leaves the scar) that shows that you reacted to the vaccine. Her school ended up giving her a second one but she still didn't blister. Her mother pitched a fit (because she didn't want her to have one at all) and so they didn't try anymore. Since I've never even heard of checking to see if a vaccine worked, who knows how many people are not protected and no one knows it?

I have never heard of IBS being related to liver problems at all. If you do have a liver problem, I would think it would be completely unrelated to having IBS. We tend to forget, when we're absorbed in our IBS--as a lot of doctors tend to forget--that you CAN have more than one thing wrong with you at a time, and they CAN be medically unrelated. And while IBS has no liver link that I am aware of, Crohn's can mess up various other organs of your body; I can't be sure that the liver is one of them, but the kidneys definitely are.

3) Have you taken the breath test for bacterial overgrowth and/or been tested for yeast overgrowth? I seem to recall reading that when you have an overgrowth of yeast in one place (urinary tract, for instance), you can have it in other places at the same time (intestines, for instance). If you can't get any medical testing towards that diagnosis, you may want to try proibiotics for a month or two and see if they help you any. I believe that they can help towards clearing up yeast and bad bacteria, although your best bet is antibiotics along with them. At the very least, you should try to get your UTI fixed; you may luck out and treating it will work for your intestines too.

1) it is too possible to pee and poop at the same time because I am also living proof of doing this...however, it is physically/medically impossible for you to lick your own elbow.

2) and 3) I don't know so I wont' respond to.

I can remember years ago my Mom saying she hated it when she went both ways at the same time. It was such an off thing for her to mention but I think of it every time I do.
