Oh yes.....we always celebrate the "normal BM" around here for sure! (I had alternating bowels aka "IBS") my entire life, so I truly "get this"!

 

There is so much joy in not having one's life ruled by the amount of time spent in the loo. 

 

Keep up the good work!

My boyfriend thought I was crazy for posting this until I let him read the responses, he laughed.  I feel like I just graduated Poop School at the age of 37.  I hate to see what a diploma from there would look like lol.

I know how you feel.  I have been a stranger to constipation all my life.  Just recently I flew home from a family visit, and got a bit dehydrated.  I was fairly delighted when I suffered my first real episode of constipation.  I cured it with a celebratory bowl of icecream.  As I am lactose intolerant, it was not pretty, but it was effective.

No, I for one get that being very new to all of this myself.  I for one cheered at what seemed to be a normal trip to the bathroom.

I don't think this is funny.

I was rather peeved when I first saw this comment and had a few choice words.

But I edited and will simply clarify that I generally don't get into discussions with other people commenting in a thread, hijacking the conversation or taking it in a different direction. Rather, I respond to the original poster's comment. It is their thread.

I still think that beth's post was quite humorous, very human, and I love when people share their embarrassments as well as their pride, and in this case, a little of both.

Beth01, kudos to you for having a sense of humor despite all that you are going through.

kareng, 

I get that you like to criticize other people's posts. But did it cross your mind that I was responding to the original post and not commenting on the post before mine? 

Some of us like to stick to the topic that the original poster started rather than get into arguments with other people commenting.

I give you the benefit of the doubt and presume that you have the best of intentions, but a lot of the time, it feels as if you are bullying other people, as you just did to me.

 

This is the joy of the internet and specifically, message boards.  Naturechick, you replied to the OP.  It was read by someone else as a reply to the comment above your reply, since you hadn't quoted anyone.  It does look like currantbun could use a little help in this department and not be laughed at, and the wonderful setup of the internet message board thing is going to lead to misunderstandings like this.  I don't think Karen's comment is bullying... you can really read through the thread two ways, and in one she is the one who is not nice, and in the other Naturechick is the one who is not nice.  If you read through it as given, it does seem like your comment wasn't the nice one, so it is good to get clarification that you were laughing at the overall jist of the thread.  Because poop=funny.  I don't care how old you are.

I had one of those S poos that they talk about on Dr OZ for the first time last week. I was pretty pleased with myself.  Congrats on your poo

I used to have this daily or even sometimes and even orange color. I did have it after going gluten-free too, but less often now, and it seems to be getting better daily. I would talk to my doctor about it, your poos should be getting better not worse.

 I know what you mean.  After my scopes, it took 6 days to have a BM.  After fits and starts with getting "regular" - avoiding the gluten has made me regular.  If I don't go daily, with a solid BM, at least I'm going every other day.  I still have occasional D, but not nearly like it used to be.

 

I have also been able to maintain my weight between 163 and 167, depending on the day, the time of day, etc. when weighed, but I'm not following a weight loss plan, and I have begun to eat some gluten-free sweets (let me say, Tate's gluten-free choc. chip cookies are the bomb).  I am on vacation this week, and after its over, I plan to eat "better" again.  2 years ago, I weighed 200 lbs.

 

After about 3 months of avoiding sweets, except the occasional ice cream (and I really don't like ice cream much) I missed the crunch of a baked good, especially muffins.  I bought Bob's gluten-free corn bread mix, and that was doing it for me.  My husband brought home Udi's bagels, and a brand of gluten-free bread called All But Gluten, and I have to say, I do enjoy eating a hard boiled egg on toast again!

 

Anyhow, avoiding the gluten has "normalized" my digestion and my BMs, so I know where you are coming from.

LOL, Not too much TMI at all !!! That's why we are all here!!!! I too, have the exact same problem. Its good to know that according to you all, I'm 'normal'.  I was only diagnosed 2 weeks ago so I look forward to being "consistent" !!! (and healthy!!) I am severely anemic (which is how we found out that I had Celiac Disease) and need to take iron supplements but it gives me horrible liquid diarrhea!!!(TMI???)  I was taking ferrous gluconate as its only 35mg, and supposedly easier on the digestive system, but now the doctor has me taking ferrous sulfate, which is 60mg......time will tell. Anyone else anemic?? What are you supplementing with?? Let's get our poop in a group!!! heehee from Canada.

    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich
