Bowel Movement Size



Subject: Bowel Movement Size

Forum: The Gastroenterology and Liver Diseases Forum

I have a very embarrassing problem I have been reluctant to
discuss with my doctor.  My bowel movements are very large - so
large that occasionally I clog up toilets.  This can be
embarrassing - believe me.  I don't eat a particularly large
amount of fiber. I have a bowel movement every 2-3 days.  A few
months ago I read about somebody with this problem on this site.
This is the first time I have ever heard of someone else with
this problem.  I would like to know if there is some condition
which causes this. I would like to know how common this is.
Also, I am curious about what the normal size is.
