Yes, we're back on the narrow poop again. Most over the past week have been narrow (quarter inch to half inch in diameter) but yesterday more normal - soft but thicker. Does pencil poop always literally mean pencil size? Is the theory that cancer can be the cause of them that the growth constricts the passage of stool meaning it has to come out thin?
Also the sig revealed no abnormalities except hems but didn't go as far as the sigmoid as it was a rigid not flexible sig.
Still feel fine in myself except for the ball in the rectal area and, interestingly, have had very little wind recently and no more black flecks!
Why does IBS cause narrowing of stool anyway? And why do hemorrhoids? Call on the experts!! Over to you!
