I'm pretty sure I just broke some kind of world record.  Two hours ago I ate a fresh spinach salad (which I knew was asking for trouble), and I've been going to the bathroom a lot since then.  Just now I went again and saw the freaking salad!!!  Two hours from mouth to toilet!   If only we could have this as an event in the Olympics.  idea

Any kind of spinach does that to me. So does asparagus. Pardon the gross factor, but they reappear as green slime. That's why the spinach and seed regimen isn't for me.

Well as long as we're being specific, I also had mandarin oranges on the salad and there were tiny bits of that, too. I'm so glad to have this site. Who else could I tell this to? ;-)

Oh yeah, onions are rough. That soup has such a concentrated flavor, I could see how that would be a problem.

I love healingwell.com. Its the home of such games as, "Competitive Pooping" and "What's THAT in the toilet?" Just kidding. ;-)

HAHA! Mike, that's great smilewinkgrin Seriously, I could never imagine myself talking about this with anyone in person, so I don't know what I'd do without this site :) There's no such thing as "TMI" here

My dad once accused me of being anorexic/bulemic because I was eating a lot of carrots... I was just really into them at the time, little baby carrots with ranch, and I couldn't stop eating them, that's all. But apparently he watched some special on TV where they talked about how people with eating disorders would eat carrots that way when they saw orange in the toilet, they knew their stomach was basically empty. I don't know. I just told my dad to stop watching so much TV and pass the ranch dip, haha.

Leafy greens usually come out the same way they went in for me, and any time I have something with sesame seeds they're always floating around shortly after.

Mike, before I knew I was lactose intolerant I tried to drink a smoothie and was running to the bathroom before I reached the bottom of the glass. It wasn't still cold, though, you've got me there. ;-) You just placed gold in the poop olympics. Suebear is bumped to silver.

Sounds like me... I love Strawberry Banana smoothies, and also the Banana/Chocolate side by side milk shake from Steak-N-Shake, so I indulge in one from time to time but I'm usually in the bathroom before I'm halfway finished so I typically wait till I get home to drink them. I think the main thing is the strawberry seeds in the smoothies that I drink sometimes, it really kills me. I pretty much avoid them nowadays, but I can't resist a good milkshake. Sometimes I just get in a mood and I HAVE to have one.

I totally love this group site.

Back in March I was entering the major part of this most recent flare, and I was going easily 20-30 times a day. I started passing my asacol tablets (and sometimes I was just pooping asacol pills). I told my GI and he said "That's just kind of remarkable, I wonder if they are just the shells not digesting.." and I said "No doc, trust me, I am pasing those pills right through me within the hour. Been doing this for a week. Want to see a really cool trick? Give me a carrot.. "

And thus, my journey to the 20-some-odd pills I take today started in much the same way as most of yours did. Awash, in a sea of poo.

"Want to see a really cool trick? Give me a carrot.. "
HAHAHAH That's great!! :D

With both Asacol and Lialda I passed the pills completely whole all the time. They always told me it was normal and that the medicine was on the outside or whatever, but they never helped my UC and I actually felt worse. Now I'm on sulfasalazine and I haven't noticed any in the bowl yet but I suppose they could be hiding.

I've been passing whole Asacol and some capsule shells lately. Its so hard to gulp those things down all day, so it really pisses me off to see them in the toilet. Not to mention that its like flushing dollars down the toilet.

My trick with Lialda -

I spend my normal 2-4 sessions on the toilet within the first hour of waking up, and then I take all 4 lialda in one gulp with my Imodium and the other arsenal of pills. How does this work for me? I rarely pass the whole pill (jesus they are so huge that it would be like my first real solid poop in months! I might get excited over that and dance in my bathroom), because they have time to digest. My next "go" time isn't for a few hours normally (sometime around noon, but it's not clockwork), so every so often I will pass shell bits. But ya know, I can handle shell bits. At least I can tell that some of the medication is digesting.

I know most people say two in the morning, and two at night, but I say, however you can keep them from shotgunning out of your butt is the way to go. I might ask the doc next time if there is any issue with breaking the lialda pills open before swallowing. I know some drugs you can not take without the coating because they can cause seisures, but I don't think mesalamine is one of them. That might be another way to make sure they digest the meds before they push through you like the last subway train.

This thread reminds me of the time my non-IBD child (then 5) swallowed a quarter. It took 13 days to pass and for 13 days I had to search for it, ugh! I saw all kinds of things pass through her quicker than that quarter. Maraschino cherries had the shortest transit time for her.

We still have the quarter, lol!!

The speed of passage is impressive. My hat is off to you for trying the salad in the first place. Two hours is in deed record setting. I have not had the nerve to try a salad in over a year. Did the following day return to normal for you?

Oh crap, I'm supposed to have chili on Saturday at my sister's house. Its like Russian Roulette, isn't it???

Bowelsafire - Usually I can eat a salad with romaine lettuce without any problem. Spinach is a killer, but I'm trying that spinach-and-sunflower thing. We'll see how that goes... and no, the rest of the day has totally sucked because of it. Thank God my son was visiting his grandparents today, or else he wouldn't have gotten much attention from me.

Julie, it's one thing to have to look for some foreign object in a 5 year old but it's another when your 12 year old daughter does it! My daughter, not being too swift at the moment, decided to swallow one of those metal keys you find with play handcuffs. I didn't do the poo fishing but I she was giving me a play by play of what she found. Luckily it came out in 2 days! lol

My fastest transit is usually from nuts. They make me run to the bathroom and one time I had a handful of peanuts and about an hour later had to do a mad dash for the bathroom and yep, there were those peanuts.
