  • Well.. poop. (Not for the faint hearted)

    Indeed, quite a nasty matter.
    I do seem to have IBS so I visit the toilet probably more than your average person.
    That's alright with me. One little problem, occasionally it takes forever to wipe it well.
    Any Ideas why?, it's extremely problematic. (especially in the army)

    I'm assuming this is because of, um, splatter? If that's not the reason, disregard the rest of this post.

    My only suggestions would be to spread your cheeks when you seat yourself and consider washing before wiping. You can take a dedicated water bottle in with you and using your arm as a sluice pour water down it and into your crack to wash things a little before you wipe. That's kind of a backpacking thing- check this site out, there's an illustration of what I mean down towards the bottom (it's a cartoon, totally safe).

      Hemorrhoids? A lot of people with 'roids complain that they need a million pieces of TP to clean up.

        Maybe it's splatter, I'll try spreading further, though it doesn't always occur.
        About Hemorrhoids, doesn't it suppose to hurt if I have them?

            I think I have the same problem as you - its not splatter!! I can wipe and wipe till the cows come home and the paper is always brown... Not every time I go but a lot. I think we are not getting it all out and there is some fecal matter still sitting there needing to be expressed but short of bursting some veins by pressing it doesn't want to come. Maybe the consistency? At those times it seems quite gluey. Probably need more veggie matter to bulk it up. I know when I drink green smoothies my feces are bulkier and not...gluey... for lack of a better word. Is this your problem?

              I know I saw it somewhere, like an older persons catalog (Carol Wright?), but they have handheld wands that squirt water, like a portable bidet (sp?). Maybe one of those, or the previously suggested water bottle will help.

                get a peri bottle... they're commonly used postpartum instead of toilet paper, and I prefer them over TP (gets everything cleaner), but that's just me.

                  No, hemorroids don't have to hurt unless they get thrombosed.

                  Maybe try wet wipes?

                    Easier said than done.

                    I think it's precisely that. I might try adding some veggies.

                    Well, maybe a good idea home, a problematic idea in the army.

                    Already use wet wipes, still doesn't help much.

                      OK, sounds like something I saw on "Embarrassing Bodies". You know how bowel can get diverticulum, little pouches or bulges in the wall, the same thing can happen in the anus. So you expel bowel contents, but little bits of faeces are caught in the pockets rather than coming out with the rest of the stool. Which means it may get dislodged with the pressure of wiping, but the other problem is it comes out later with gravity (this guy swore he wiped forever and then hated fact his underwear then was dirty) I am not sure of the term, I'll come back if I can find it.
