Burn sensation when having a bowel movement



Recommended Posts

So sometime ago i posted about this to see if anyone was expierincing these problems basically when i poop it burns. Well it finally got so bad i went to er they said its proctitis he did not give me anything at all just left me in pain. then went to see my doctor said the same thing but he gave me some muscle relaxers and stool softners and valium and of course doing sitz baths but still nothing helps. I keep telling them i think its my poop burning me but they just disregard me even my bariatric surgeon said it was not an issue with the surgery so he is not concerned. I am so worried waiting on a gastroenterologist to see me but in the mean time i have to go back to work and no changes. I dont know what to do i had blood work done was low in zinc and Iron and d i asked the nutritionist if this would cause the problem she said she did not know. Oh great these people cant seem to help me pain is severe just want to be able to go without glass shards coming out.

I would get some OTC Prilosec while you're waiting for the doctors to figure it out just to eliminate the possibility of excessive acid production. You could chomp on some tums too and see if that makes a difference.

It sounds as though you may have excess acid so an acid reduced and possibly a change to what you are eating may help

Maybe an anal fissure? This can happen with Constipation and passing hard stools that you get a tear. It is like pooping razor blades and burns 🥵 can be very painful .....

I know this is a while ago but I had surgery almost two months ago and am having a very similar situation to the burning feeling that lingers for a while after every time I pass a bowel movement. I’m going at least once a day but I never look forward to it cause of the pain and it makes it really uncomfortable to sit or do most anything. I don’t feel like I’m passing very hard stools but I did have a small hemorrhoid early on but doctors and dieticians have not been really able to suggest anything. Did you find anything that helped and how is it now after a few years?

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
