I have had this plastic type substance in my bowel for at least several months...it's the texture between a plastic bag & tissue paper. It does not dissolve, obviously, it comes out in all different sizes & shapes, but it does pull apart. My stool is a bit reddish in color & sometimes needs to come out quickly after intense stomach pain & severe bloating. I can go from my usual sz 6 to a sz 10 in less than one hour.
I had some female surgery awhile back after being tore during delivery of my last child....I think they only stitched up the anal area, but didn't go into my intestines...I thought maybe the surgeon left something in there. Otherwise, what could this be. I'm very concerned. I am not able to go to a Dr. at this time as I'm without insurance & in a foreign country....any suggestions would be so appreciated

  • The same thing is happening to me, and I have never had kids or any surgeries, so you can rest assured that it probably has nothing to do with the surgery. Unfortunately, I do not know what the cause is. I am also having diarrhea.
