I mean, do you guys just have some days where you fill the whole toilet up in one sitting. Where in the heck does it all come from? I don't eat any more than usual. I still went 19 times the day before, lol. Yet, I have managed to fill up an entire toilet once again. I am literally full of it sometimes.

It is odd, especially when it feels like so much more is comming out compared to what's going in.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

I have days like that. I'm a fairly small person and I think how in the world can all that poop be in there?!

Me too! It seems like there is no way that much went in. For me, the worst part isn't the volume, it's the smell. At work there are days, I go to another floor to poo. It's sorta funny skulking around, being the mystery pooper.

Oh most definitely. It always feels kinda nice after though, when you haven't gone in awhile and you feel so bloated, and then it feels like your stomach and intestines are just collapsing as you go because you're so empty!

And NMcP, I always go to the bathroom on the first floor at my work when I'm on lunch instead of the one in our break room, because there is hardly ever anyone in there and I can sit in there my whole lunch break if I want and no one will notice! Haha

Too bad they don't soundproof the stalls. Sometimes when I really have to go, it's all just gas...really LOUD gas.

When there is a lot of volume, it sucks because at work they have water saving toilets. They don't refill quickly at all and there are so many times that the first flush just doesn't do the job. There is only so long I can wait before I have to get back to my desk. I feel so guilty leaving it for the next guy.

This happens to me, too! I have no idea how I can poop the amount I do, especially sometimes after I've already had 2 or 3 BMs that day. Before I got UC, I never filled up the bowl this much, so it doesn't make sense to me. Is the stool just that much looser/less compacted that it appears to be so much more?

I can definitely relate. Mornings are the worst for me but I cannot believe how much poo comes out! And I'm also a tiny person!

Boy, I'm sort of envious! I have the opposite problem. My intake doesn't match my output. My gut will roil for a few days before I finally get rid of most of it and then I go back into that cycle.

I have clogged many tiolets, actually I clogged 2 of my MIL's tiolets last time I was there... how embarrassing! Sometimes I just can't believe how much I can go. The other day, I went about 20 times and took a Lomotil and didn't eat much so I thought I would be ok the next day... well I woke up having tons of D... I don't know where it all comes from. There is an urban legend that John Wayne had 40 lbs of stool in him when he died, don't know if you all have heard that one or not... I know I have read it is just a myth but it does seem possible.
