Also, when it feels like I am giving birth to my poo (meaning not having normal shaped bm's in a long while can hurt sometimes).
OMG OMG OMG...
okay, i am in some serious need of some answers here.
i thought the last few weeks i was doing so good and healing... ive been having normal bm's and omg it so feels like im having a baby.
it hurts SOOOOOOOOOOOO bad i sounds like im giving birth on the toilet.
then a few hours later i go again and there is blood and bits.
whats going on?
i was assuming on a logical basis, that for the last year or so my colon has not had anything solid go through it. and since it is flaring and inflammed and raw and tender, that a solid bm passing through is making it bleed. and ripping it up a bit.
or, im not healing and still stuck in a flare???
which is it?
should i take a stool softener maybe to let me colon heal without putting it thru the hell of passing a formed stool?
what do you think?
i thought the pred was working, but then the blood would come.. so im not sure now where im at or whats going on?
the bm's usually are blood free and fill up the toilet (due to the pred making me eat so much, that im producing a lot of crap and it all wants to come out at once)
