I've noticed this for a while now:
I'll have a normal BM and I'll feel like I've totally vacated my bowls - it DOES NOT feel like I'm unable to fully void, like there's still something left inside that I can't push out.
I'll wipe very, very thoroughly until there's no fecal stains on the toilet paper at all, and it'll feel perfectly clean and everything.
But EVERY TIME I have a BM, 20 minutes to an hour later I'll feel 'wetness/slickness' between my buttocks, like I didn't properly clean between them before - which I know isn't true because I made sure that I DID clean there properly.
So I'll go and check and, sure enough, after I wipe, there's fecal stains on the TP. Not a lot at all, there's no actual solid feces coming out, and there's no feeling of 'suddenly having to go' or anything like that.
I don't understand it at all.. it's like, no matter how well I wipe, after I'm done in the bathroom, a little bit more fecal stuff ALWAYS seeps out and in-between my cheeks, and I don't know what this means or what to do about it.
I feel it's worth noting that this didn't happen to me until about a year AFTER I had my first really, really bad hemorrhoid that lasted for a looooong time. Could something like that possibly lead to what I'm describing?
I'm also worried that it could be a sign of something far more serious, like a bowel obstruction or a tumor or cancer or something horrible like that, though I'm 99% sure it's not.. but still. It worries me.
Does anyone out there have any idea what this is, or has anyone out there experienced something like this, or even similar to this?
