Muscule Contractions when having a BM
This is going to be difficult to explain ! I have on-going bowel problems after having a hysterectomy last year and the STARR procedure 2 months ago. I suffer from Obstruction Defecation Sydrome so having a BM is a complicated process.
Over the past few weeks I have experienced a kind of muscular contraction during a BM. I get a crampy feeling in my stomach and then this massive kind of contraction happens - my whole body kind of' heaves' and 'contracts' and I experience a weakness and feel like I may vomit and then the faeces will pass down and out. It is a horrible feeling that only lasts for maybe 5 - 10 seconds, but it totally drains me of the little bit of energy I have. I might have 3 -5 of these episodes at any one 'sitting' on the loo and due to the ODS I only have a BM about once a week.
I am due to go to my doctor tomorrow - so was just wondering if anyone else experiences anything like this and could help me to explain it better to my doctor. Even reading back over what I have written here does not accurately explain what is happening - but it is very hard to describe it.
Any help would be appreciated.
