***WARNING: POOP TALK***
Having Crohn's for almost 30 years, I'm still learning things. The past few days for example.
I've been having bloating and pain, rushing to the toilet only NOT be able to go. I have the feeling to go, but.....nothing. Two days of anxiety, pain, bloating, worry and WTF!; today, I might have figured it out.
I didn't eat today except for some toast and tea in the morning trying to get my gut to relax. Still running to the toilet...and nothing...again and again and again, sometimes 4-5 times in an hour.
Then the "ahhhhhhh" moment tonight. Not only because I finally went, but probably the reason why.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, it's water, but this time it was semi formed!! I haven't had that in decades! Which is why I was hurting I think. What's left of my large intestine couldn't handle the non watery stool.
The lack of pressure now is such a relief, to the point where I can actually sit down!!
Welllllllll, except for the peri anal abscess, but that's another story.
