Amazing you were able to hold it in! In that case, maybe no rectal inflammation/flaring, so could have been what you ate and stress causing the increased activity?
I, as of late, have had more active movement, but I've also been eating more "stuff", fruit,veggies, salad ...lol.
Lots of noise, 2 more bms but normal consistency.
Did you take the metamucil caps while you were away? Bentylol?
Basically, the noises are from whatever is in the gut being moved along. Depending on if the noise is in the small intestine or the colon, maybe....
I have had the froggie noises...I think they're funny. I'll press on that spot to move it along, and it stops.
Now, the other issues.....one cannot ever trust a fart, especially with lots of gut activity....and holding it in?? they're called sharts by the way, and having that happen is very humbling and embarrasing.
It's good you were at home, however.
Let us know how your appointment with the doc goes today.....Im interested in the reception of your queries.
