I recently had hepitis(inflammation) in my liver and mono according to my doctor, i was sick for like 3-4 weeks. I rarely went to poop but I did vomit whatever I ate. But now after the sickness has subsided I use the bathroom regularly and my stool is not as big as it was. I constantly feel like going to the bathroom after i eat a lot. So before my sickness I was maybe going to the bathroom once a week, now I go at least once a day?
Previous to my sickness, I had an internal hemroid where I was treated by a specilalist, ever since then I have not seen any blood in my stool. This was not that recent either. Till this day I haven't seen any blood of any kind, I think i saw one small spot of blood awhile back, but i was havin a diffucult time going to the bathroom that day, but other than it I havent seen any blood.
As for the stool, It looks like regular poop, but when I used to go to the bathroom my stool was quite larger, and I would prolounge my bathroom use to 4-7 days. Now its once a day at least.
I've had no weight loss other than when i was sick, infact I've gained like 15-20 pounds.
I am a male, 19 years old.
I don't feel any pain, my stomach rubbles a lot more. I dont feel weak or anything like, I lift weights and run almost every day. I barely drink anymore.
A lot of people have told me its a good thing that I go to the bathroom more now, but I've read bowel movement is a symptom of colon cancer.
If anyone could maybe help shed some light on this for me, I'd really appreciate it.
yes. My brother is medically inclined, and he likes to scare me telling me things to make me think I have some crazy disease, but its not like it isnt possible, I'm gonna see a doctor anyways this week.
My way of thought is this, this change in bowel movement was caused by my recent sickness, but now when I use the bathroom my stool is quite small and it goes down a lot easier then before I was sick. BEfore it often was diffucult and very large, which is what I beilieved caused my internal hemroid.
I only feel bloated after I've eaten, I'm not gonna say I don't eat as much mainly because I still do eat a lot. Lke for example, I'm laying in bed now my stomach is rumbling and I feel as if I can use the bathroom, With this change in bowel movement I feel no pain whatsoeva. I do see frequent farting since my sickness, but again I beilieve I could of been farting alot before
