Soft stool won't come out

Postby jessica0133 » 07 Feb 2018, 13:48

I've been suffering from hard stools for some time now. They are so hard and bulky that I have to manually push on it with my finger to get them out. From all this hard straining, I've developed an anal fissure that won't go away.

I've started 1) drinking more water, 2) eating more fiber, 3) taking magnesium citrate (400mg), and 4) taking 1 colace a day in the morning to help make things softer.

I'm struggling to get to the "toothpaste" consistency. I've gotten things much much softer, but now I'm finding that my stool gets stuck in my rectum and just won't come out! I still have to use my fingers to manually coax the stool out.

I also use coconut oil and aquaphor on fissure itself after bowel movements and throughout the day.

Should I try Miralax instead of Colace?
What do you do you have soft stool that won't just come out?

Having same problems. Tried various different stool products. Now taking Restorlax. Just had an evening after dinner poo. Some came out. Some still compacted. Supposed to take it once a day.

As most know here by now...i have anal cancer and a fissure. Double the pain. In cue for plenty of tests before Chemo and Radiation Begins.

Have been using Lax-O-Fibre for two years now but doesnt stool soften...so often have bulky stools that lead to straining and burning pain in fissure area.

The Surgeon told me that once the Chemo starts the pain in the fissure will subside. This is no cure for anyone else.

On prune juice today. Mushy poo stuck in lower intestine won't come out causing burning and misery. Burning and spasms. Horrible. Went for a walk. Just gave me urge too poo. Cant get it all out. Took a bath to clean area. Put on Lidocaine Nefidipine cream...still burning and spasms. Bad Saturday afternoon no releif of empting bowel completely. Colonscopy in 4 days. At least the prep will get rid of everything gunged up in there!!
