Angry leakage/itching

I was wondering if I could I could get some advice on this problem that has persisted for about a year off and on. My problem is that I occassionally experience what I could only define as leakage from my anus. I will get a sensation of moistness on my anus and I will go to the bathroom and wipe to discover either a small amount of feces (not in my underwear but just when I wipe) or simple moisture. I am guessing from reading these boards that it is mucus but I don't know. I also ocassionally get blood on the toilet paper, have to use an abnormal amount of toilet paper to wipe myself clean (after which I may return at some later time and have to wipe again) and a persistant itching. I also am having trouble with bowel movements. They take fare to long and I often feel as though the job was not entirely completed. From what I can gather from various web sites and postings, this sounds like possibly an internal hemmerhoid or a rectal prolapseI am embarrassed to discuss this with my doctor and I am generally uncomforatable with someone examining my rear. This is causing me much anxiety and beginning to interfere with my functioning as I feel this problem is taking too much of my time and energy. I am also disconcerted that these problems that I associate with older men are occurring to me in my early twenties. I am in desperate need of some advice. Please advise.

I'm currently going through the same exact thing you described and have struggled with it for some time now. I have visited a doctor and all he told me was to take metamucil. I take it everyday in the morning and at night, but the problem persists. I also take a probiotic every nite and consume daily a container of yogurt. I used to strain a lot to go to the bathroom, maybe that is what caused this. I know I have hemmoroids too.

You could be suffering from anusitis which is a result of diet (coffee, beer, garlic, spicy food) and/or stress. I think there is a very simple treatment for it called Anurex which is like a cold compress for your back end.
But without a doubt ask your doctor for a reference to a bowel clinic or specialist who deals with these issues daily. No need for embarrassment when you see that the waiting rooms are packed with people of all ages!

If the leakage is persistent to the point that it passes to and through your underwear, might I suggest that you visit a board certified colorectal surgeon. Your internal sphincter (voluntary muscle) may need to be retrained or something may not be right with this. There is biofeedback (bowel/muscle retraining) which may possibly help with the problem.

I have taken pressure tests and i have passed every one of them...maybe it has to do with me trying to pass and then how my muscles act when i am not thinking about it

The above post on seepage and stool softening to
pass a harder blockage sounds right to me.
I've had this problem when my colon has been attached to my pelvic side wall muscle and is making colon problems from external colon adhesions.
I've used plain and simple glycerine suppositories
to get the blockage softened.
I also eat a very high fiber diet with daily plain no fat yogurt. When I don't keep in constant upkeep with my fiber and my anti spasmodic medications that work specifically on spasms of the vagus nerve, the colon and the bladder, then there comes problems.
I've had 3 surgeries in less than a years time with having Colon related problems.

Angry

i've been advised to have surgery for my bladder, which seems to have "dropped" http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/redface.gif because i pee when i laugh, don't make it on time ... you get the drift ...

how is this kind of surgery done, and what's the down time?

I've noticed what appear to be clear pimples on my anus. Does anyone know what this is symptomatic of?

Question

Possibly. See your doctor. It could be an abscess or fistula (don't think so but wouldn't rule it out). If you have any twinging and it hurts when you press it on, then definitely yes.

I have had this problem off and on for about a year. All test show nothings wrong! Here's what I do, after cleaning thoroughly with rectal wipes I take a half cotton ball sprinkle gold bond powder on it and place it at the opening. I have shared this with several family members who have also adopted this practice. No more itching or eechy feeling.
