What should be healthy bowel movement, feel and look like?

Okay I've been having bowel movements that look pretty solid, but they leave a mess to clean up on my rectum.

I've had bowel movements that left absolutely nothing to clean up on the rectum. So here are my questions


How would I get a bowel movement that leaves pretty much nothing to clean from my rear (i've tried fiber supplements but they don't help, is there too much water in my stool)?

Also if the bowel movements I'm having now are leaving a mess on my rectum, couldn't it also be leaving material behind in my large intestine? Is this a danger? (the fecal matter is {not diaherra or anything close}, but everything it touches it leaves a wet trail)


Thanks.

P.S. sorry for all the details

Ask your doctor for a prescription for "Miralax". Miralax causes absorption of moisture into foods passing thru. It is not a laxative like x-lax or others. It draws water into the stools. Miralax has no taste.

I had tried pysllium, Konsyl, Metamucil and others to no avail. Miralax is working.

Miralax?

If my stool is leaving stuff to pick up, wouldn't water make it worst?

Kind of like mud? Too much water and it leaves a trail? (sorry about the example but I don't know how else to explain it)

Read the book "You the owner's manual" by M. Roizen & M. Oz. You can probably get it from the library. It will explain all you need to know. They do tell you that you must drink lots of water to avoid problems.
