Ask PoopReport: How Do I Find A Pooping Middle Ground?
Today we received an email from someone who needs some advice. She wrote the following:
I used to not poop but maybe 3 times a week.
Soon after I diagnosed with PTSD, I started to gain weight. Didn't matter what I did. I kept gaining and now I can't loose the weight, which lead me to this question: Now that I am fat--probably 150 pounds more than I should be--as soon as I eat, five minutes later I have to rush to the bathroom. It is not necessarily diarrhea, but it not firm. Kinda like a cow patty. The odd thing is I don't eat cheese that often, but when I do this does not happen; instead I become constipated. My stomach hurts to the point when I put ice packs on it to help with the pain. The pain can come constipation or with the cow pile.
Do any readers have suggestions for this poor girl?
