    Not that I can think of, Adi. But I don't pay much attention to what I eat.

    Arrrrrgh (sorry but Adi's photo reminds me of a pirate, lol).

    Wishing you luck in that everything .. comes out okay.

    If Mother Nature is visiting, it is not uncommon to have bladder/bowel irregularities. I would find I get constipated, then diarrhea .. then boom .. within two days I'm back to normal. I usually pee quadruple what I normally do then as well.

    Not enough research on women with SCI!!! (Wish I could tap into the breast cancer research supporters for this!)

    Hi,

    Please make sure you do not have a large piece of stool higher up that is blocking the passage of stool downward (called impaction). You can easily google this term and if you are uncomfortable or you do not have results soon, you can try an oral laxative.

    That said, if you are feeling ill, having stomach pain or vomitting, you should see your doctor.

    Thank you Nurse. So far I don't have any discomfort, thank G-d.
    Lynn, it's not that time of month. I've never noticed a corellation between menstruation and b/b actually.

    Min- I've had thaT problem lately, but i think I may cause it, I was on 2 strong biotics a couple weeks ago and needed to use immodium, then took too much, Had a gut ache for it too--3 days later , didn't think i'd stop. Then went 3-5 times day,then nothin for 2 days, finally now back to the ol' 45 min after eatin. Bingo, yea. Don't ya jus love this life?
    Sure hope the spot on your back isn't where it's stopped up and starting to push out . But I do hope u start feeling better

    You might have just completely emptied out due to the diarrhea. When that happens, at least to me, it takes a few days to "reload" due to my now slower-than-AB bowels.

    Happy Poopin!

    Same here.

    Now that I have a colostomy I can better track volumes. On a day where my stool is very loose and I produce a lot then next couple of days I get nothing.

    Good luck!
