I’m not sure you want to get any more graphic that you already have, but I’m also not certain I understand exactly what you’re saying? 45 minutes? Are you continually going and having to wipe again for 45 minutes, or are you saying it takes you 45 minutes to get clean tissue from one bm?
It’s hard to explain.. but I’ll do my best. (Click on the link and read everyones complaints. We are all suffering from the same thing. For the best description of whats going on with me and many others, just read what everyone is typing… http://www.poopreport.com/Doctor/Knowledgebase/wipesomuch.html?from=0&comments_per_page=900 )
I take a BM. The BM isn’t loose, but it lacks structure. I never get a “clean break” so to speak. Which makes it a very difficult clean up. Some times there will still be poo and/or mucous still inside of me that is very hard to pass. Also, by the color of my stool, it’s apparent that I’m having a hard time digesting fats.
It literally takes half a roll of TP sometimes to get clean. It’s awful and time consuming. I hate it. I do have wet wipes.. In fact, I can’t live with out them.. They help a lot, but despite having them, it’s no big deal for me to spend upwards of a half an hour in the bathroom with each BM.
I know this sounds crazy, but i’ve been living this way for 4 years now. I’ve been in and out of the doctors office many times.. I’ve had many tests.. All came back with normal results.. After finding this website, I really believe Candida is the culprit for this plague. I was wondering if anyone else on this forum has had these symptoms.
