Default A Stool that Won't Flush (floating stools diet pancreas fat)


A plumbing problem, like low-flush toilets to save water :-)

http://www.afraidtoask.com/bowel/frSTOOLCOLOR.html
SMELLY or GREASY STOOL
You are what you eat, and so is your stool! Changes in your diet will cause
changes in the smell (and texture) of your stool.. Some say a vegetarian diet
causes less odor in the stool, since fat seem to cause smellier stools. If you
have particularly greasy, smelly, floating stools, you may have a problem
absorbing fat from your gut. The problem may be in your pancreas or small
bowel. You should alert your physician about this problem.

FLOATING STOOLS
Generally means your stool has a high fat content. See above for smelly greasy
stools.

Default A Stool that Won't Flush (down)


If your stool is so big that it won't flush down most public toilets, see
your doctor.

This is not something we can really help you with. Nor would we want to.

I have laid some mondo turds but have not yet had to get a spatula to
chop it up before it would go down. Yet.

Spatula? How about a pry bar? After a barium test..
(I guess I didn't drink enough water??)

Wait a sec, I thought some/one of you said that has to do with how much (big
meals) a person eats?

Default A Stool that Won't Flush (fat)


News writes:

If it's too large, that's just a plumping problem with the toilet (too
small a toilet, too little water when flushing, etc.). If the stool
floats, that's a matter of density, but it isn't necessarily a sign of a
problem. Gas in the stool will make it light; so will fat and some
other low-density materials.

Default A Stool that Won't Flush (bacteria)


J writes:


No, it's a combination of factors. How much you eat, how much is
indigestible, the state of intestinal flora (a large part of stool is
dead bacteria from the intestinal tract), the frequency of bowel
movements, the elasticity of the **** opening (if it is restricted,
stools obviously may not be as large)--all kinds of factors.

Good point. By discharge, I was thinking it was blocking the toilet.

If it is just a floater, don't worry. It will pass eventually. What you do
is you just flush the toilet, close the lid immediately, and wash your
hands. The next person will deal with it. Eventually it will go down when it
breaks up. And there is a party or something, they might not even know it is
you!

And if you are using a public toilet in a stall, just put on your pants, zip
up and all that first, then flush and leave the stall while it is still
flushing. It will be the next person's problem.

And if you are talking about nasty streak marks in the toilet, well, the
will disappear either with a few flushes by the next users or when the owner
cleans the toilet. Don't worry, everyone poops. It's really not a big deal.

Next time, just crap in the woods after the barium. That solves that
problem.

Well that answers that question. A Barium DOES crap in the woods.
