I suggest you take a fibre supplement...I've been having success with Metamucil capsules and take them with my two major meals of the day (I only eat brunch (or breakfast) and supper...but do snack afterward..lol!
The urgency you explain is because eating triggers peristalsis, and whatever is in the rectum will have to be purged...I don't see it as a biggie, however.
Are you having mucus type stuff or are you having a formed stool during that time?
Yep,, could be the gallbladder (lack of)....but i do think that the fibre supplement might be a plus.
As well....consider probiotics.
hope you have a feeling better day!
