well this is a new one for me

So I think something has crawled up my poop-shoot and is standing in my rectom waiting for poo to come down just far enough from my colon, then it takes a chunk (ping-pong sized) and rolls them into a ball (ping-pong ball) and then slowly pushes them out my butt, with a lot of work on my part BTW...

I have NO CLUE as to what's going on with my poops, the back-splash from these miniature cannons are freaking me out to say the least...I have not changed anything at all, same diet, same exercise...I'm bound to get an actual hemheroid if this keeps up...what in the heck could this mean, has anyone had this?

Same thing happens to me. It seems to be a form of constipation (to me at least), because it seemes to happen when it's been up there too long. The balls are usually perfectly round and seem hard and polished (although I've never actually touched one). However, once they get past a certain size they turn into "fissure-rippers" and can be a real (and painful) problem.

You know what the weirdest thing is, how can the poops be up there too long when I still go at least 5 times a day....so frustrating, the last thing I need is fissures or even hemmies for that matter on top of my huge perianal crohn's skin tags...oh well I guess it's just the nature of the beast.

Thanks for your input, it's comforting to know that I'm not alone with this bizzare experiance.

I get this. Another problem caused by strictures for me.

Try drinking more fluids?

I guess I'll add a little more fluids but I do already drink alot of water daily to help flush toxins out...I sure hope to heck this isn't a sign of stricture(s), in my entire 17 yrs of having CD I've never had stricture issues.

That usually only happens with me if I haven't drank enough water and eaten enough fiber.

I get it all the time and I get most of my fissures from this as well.

well, it's not round hard balls today but it's green, and I think it was green when they were round balls but I didn't notice for sure (cuz they just looked really dark in the toilet) because from wiping nothing really showed up on the TP but now that they are softer and long instead of round hard balls, when I wipe I see green, the same shade of green (dark) when I was taking the chlorophyll back in the beginning of last spring for about 2 months. But I'm not taking it nor have I been for a long time so it's not that but it's the same color as it was when I was taking it. And it smells bad, normally there isn't a foul odor when I "go" but there is now...I have not been eating anything blue (which I know can turn the color of stool green) I have also not increased my green veggies anymore than usual either.

I know this green color could be related to gallbladder (which I still have) but I'm not having any pain or any other gallbladder symptoms...I'm really getting freaked out here. Like I said, I've never exeperianced green poops other then the short time I was using the chlorophyll.
