why I cannot wipe clean after bowel movement

After bowel movement, my anus wouldn't close and still there is more poopy in rectum, and I have to use a roll of toilet paper and spend more than 1 hour to wipe. I am crying and painful every time I have to do BM. Am I the only one to have this problem? Who can help?

You may want to call a doctor.

Re: why I cannot wipe clean after bowel movement

I have that problem a lot also. I found if I add more fiber to my diet that seems to help. For me if I add too much fiber I get constipated. Also, if you have an internal hemorrhoid or a fissure that seems to make clean up difficult. HTH.

Re: why I cannot wipe clean after bowel movement

Another reason for your problem could be that you have a rectocele. Do a search & read about the symptoms to see if that fits you. I've heard several people say that taking the fiber drink that starts with an M helps a lot. It seems like it makes bigger stools & they're kind of lubricated & they don't get so darn sticky & messy to clean. I agree about baby wipes! They sit right on my bathroom floor next to the toilet!

Re: why I cannot wipe clean after bowel movement

When I am having very soft mushy stools I keep a squeeze bottle with water in( like syrup bottle) And I try to wash the area off squishing the water on it. This helps quite a bit when I am having bad IBS days and cuts down on the paper usage.

Re: why I cannot wipe clean after bowel movement

Celiac Disease sometimes causes that effect. Have you ever had the blood test for that? Alot of doctors aren't thinking about C. D. as it has come on the scene lately. There is also a biopsy that is more conclusive but has to be done during endoscopy. Anyway read up on it.

i was going to say the same thing - it sounds like a rectocele. i just posted about that in another topic. i have the same issue - i'm forever having to wipe... i'm on the toilet for ages.

you could try sprinkling pshyllium husk on your cereal each morning; what this does is help clear the bowel wall lining thus helping to form better stools. some people when using there bowels don't always have a full evacuation, for example imagine when you have a milkshake the inside of the straw still has milk on it this is what the bowel lining is like so by using pshyllium husk this may help with your situation. also when using baby wipes choose unperfumed. help this helps
