Mike asks:

No matter what I eat, within twenty minutes I get the back door trots -- and when I got to go I got to go NOW. Is this some kind of medical thing? I haven't had a solid bowel movement in about three months. Sometimes it's tarry, or yellow, or both; sometimes it's like I'm peeing through my backside, and sometimes it's even green. Anyway, thats all from me.

Dear Mike,

Thanks for the question.

You have left out a bit of info -- like, HAVE YOU SEEN A DOCTOR YET?

It goes without saying that changes in your bowel movements such as you described should be promptly and thoroughly investigated. Don't even try to tell me you haven't gone to the doctor yet.

If you have been, and the doctor doesn't know what's wrong, how am I supposed to know? I don't mean to be insensitive, but I am not all that smart, I drink a lot, and am not even a doctor.

Get to a doc, and if you have been and he/she doesn't know, go to another one. Poop shouldn't be ANYTHING like what you are describing.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

Poonurse is right. Get your ass to the doctor. This certainly isn't normal.

I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the whole time!

Sounds like me, try to go wheat free [no bread, no pasta] for a few days and see how that works out, but definitely go see a doctor in the meantime.

I;ve recently stopped eating meat of any kind and have notice that I have more bowel movements than before. Mainly one hour or so ,I have been eating very healthy as well. Sometimes my movement is yellow in color similar to an infants. Am I in jepardy for any future condition?

It sounds like you may have either IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or a form of gluten intolerance. Why not keep a journal of everything that you put in your mouth (and i do mean EVERYTHING..every last bite) to see if there is some sort of pattern. If that doesn't help, I would definitely see your doctor. Even if there really isn't anything seriously wrong, it can't hurt to be on the safe side. Good luck

I have recently experienced, expulsion of yellow liquid. To me it sounds like excess bile, possibly due to a problem with the gallbladder. (I watch a lot of medical shows). I'm going to get it checked out by a doctor though.

Recently I've been farting out yellow, liquid. I've only had it happen twice and about, a two week break in between. Do you know what's causing it?

No, no one here knows what's causing it, though several of us could make interesting guesses. If you want to know (and it sounds like you should want to), see a doctor. That's what they're for. They have heard and seen it all, so don't be embarrassed.

Have you ever heard of the 'trots' refered to as, 'the green apple gallop'?

Pooping yellow shit, I think, is symptomatic of apostropheitis. (PS. I doubt that you're "dieing," but bet that you're planning on voteing for John McCain.")

Wow. Peanut-buttery mustard and piss coming out of your backside? That's just wrong.

Reminds me of that X-Men episode when the bad guy barfed out his butt. Which, actually, I totally identify with.

"...I once ate a roadkill possum that had been raised on a diet of carp. I cooked it over a fire fueled with old tires and dog shit. [My fart] put to shame the sewers of Calcutta."

I just recently started havbing this same problem. My stomach would begin hurting on and off and when i least expected it, i'd have to go. And when i mean go, i mean RIGHT THEN. And it happend 3 times in the first hour. the first time it was yellow. and did remind me of urination. The second time it was green. And third time yellow. It's happened 3 times since then thats when i started doing this research.
