Can't make a bowel movement
 
Bowel movement problems?
I'm 21.
I have trouble going to the toilet for the past year now since I made a rough bowel movement and had to put a finger in to help.
Ever since a year ago I have lost the normal urge to go to the toilet and I used to get the urge once daily.
When I make my self go I have to strain and can push once and little but soft stool comes out and if I push to go again I can't make a bowel movement .
I can only push one stool out and then it's like I'm blocked no gas or stool and iknow there must be more to come out as the first strain I only manage a small soft stool , I have hemmoroids they to push out when I make my first bowel movement , but after the first bowel movemt nothing no gas or stool but when I wipe there a lot of mucus .
Sometime if I lean to the left while I'm on the toilet I can pass even a smaller stool but nothing more ..
I have no pain only when I strain there a ache deep in my rectum like bladder preasure .
I'm really scars because If I take stool softners I just end up with diahrea and still can't push more then first movement which is small . It's like my anal swells shut after first movement.
I have had a very strong fibre diet and iknow it's not normal constipation because most of the time the stools are soft .
Also when I go I sometime find it difficult to keep my anal relaxed to let the stool out .
I have lived by stool softners for the past year to make myself not backed up or I feel sick and bloated and get abdominal pain.
Recently reading I was scared it maybe a internal prolapse but I have no idea which is scary .
Also my liver enzymes are high on a recent blood test but showed no food allergys or anything , if anyone can relate to this I'd be glad to hear some info....

Re: Can't make a bowel movement
 
Hi, do you drink plenty of water? Whenever I have problems I take miralax or the store brand of it. If I'm real backed upI may have to take it a couple of days before it works. It's ver mild and natural like no cramping for me.

If you are lots of fiber you must take plenty of water. I'd keep up with the softness to keep those hemmoirds down. You can also put some Vaseline around the edge of your rectum to assist.

Not sure about the minus.

I would definitely see a gastro dr so he can run some tests. Cathy
