| | Stool size and shape
I'm confused what is normal or not with spastic colon?
I'm kind of a type A person, so anxiety and obsessed with my stool lately. I usually have my one BM per day first thing in the AM and although it's long and coiled--the size is dime or nickel size. Could this be because I do not take or eat much fiber, spastic colon squeezing, hemorrhoid at anus, or a rush transit time? Years ago I had such constipation that I had to give "birth" to a stool. Now stools range from more normal shape to a looser consistency and smaller in diameter. The dr says I have a hemorrhoid and fissure and wondered if this has an effect on the stool exiting?
I shouldn't be so obsessesd, but have always been curious how IBS affects other people. My husband has diareah most everyday and it doesn't bother him at all.
Can't figure him out.
