The only way I can poop is to push against my rectum and strain my guts out and then not a lot comes out.Have a sharp pain in rectum if i try to poop without doing this.I have discomfort in my tummy 24/7. Am afraid to eat normally cause it usually causes terrible gas pains and cramps starting in my mid abdomen area and working down to my large intestines and usually causes loose watery stools. The pains can get almost un-bearable at times,so much so that i'm getting afraid to eat.Had uterus removed in 1995 and have been having problems like this ever since. Think i may have a prolapsed rectum? Also had hemmorhoidectomy in 1993, worst thing I've ever been thru, and it has left me with an abnormal fear of doctors and meds, so I'm terrified to go to doctor.( I also have a panic disorder) Tried a glycerin suppository one time and felt nothing. Thought about an enema, but am terrified I'll start cramping and nothing will come out. I'm miserable physically and mentally.I'm 65 years old and scared.

  • Don't be scared I know how you feel. I have similar problems I use a suppository it makes a big difference to have a bowl movement . I'm loosing weight and can't eat as everything upsets my stomach .lots of burping ang gas. I think I am not digesting food properly. I am going to try and find some type of digestive enzyme
