User Profile
When I'm about to poop literally as it's about to come out my anus clenches making it receid this happens repeatedly until I just give up. This has only been for the past week. I do eventually go only in small amounts. I take norco for pain. So my question is why do I clench. Right before It comes out?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Narcotics make such complications. Opioids need to be stopped and some laxatives with some diet and lifestyle modifications like fiber diet and fluids etc is mandatory.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
