I feel a bit of bloating after I eat a meal; it continues for half an hour and then eases out without any medication. Sometimes I feel the need to urinate. Is this normal? Sometimes I get flatulence. I pass stool of diameter 1 cm, often in pieces, twice a day. Is it something serious?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Do not worry; you may be suffering from food intolerance like irritable bowel syndrome or acid peptic disease or lactose or gluten intolerance.
Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is.
If symptoms are not improved, please consult with your physician; he will examine and treat you accordingly.
Thank you for your reply.
Is stool 1 cm of diameter twice a day without constipation normal?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Yes, it is normal to pass stools around 1 cm. But do not worry in a few conditions like anal canal stenosis or anal muscular spasm or fissure also may present like this. To evaluate for this, you have to get rectal examination or proctoscopy. But, recently passing or new onset of thin stools maybe not a serious problem. Observe for two weeks, if you are still passing thin stools, please consult with your surgeon; he will examine and treat you accordingly.
