I really don't know the answer to that but my daughter when she was small used to pass bowel movements like that...
Just curious if anyone knows. Can large bowel movements (ie, the kind that plug the toilet every time) be a symptom? I know diarrhea/constipation but my husband brought the quantity up. My son's going through diagnosis and no one on either side of the family has ever been diagnosed so at the moment it's a guessing game who it came from (we'll be tested, just dealing with our oldest at the moment). So of course we both see signs of it in our own families.
We were perplexed, but her Pediatrician never seemed concerned. Now my sister her Aunt was diagnosed with
Celiac and I have gone Gluten Free due to symptoms of chronic constipation...
I have ordered testing from Enterolabs, after testing negative for Celiac through traditional blood Celiac Panels.
Went gluten free 10/02/09
Immediate and Positive intestinal improvement with improvement in headache frequency
Enterolab results 11/23/09 (after one month gluten free)

One of my daughters also used to pass big bm's until she went gluten free in June.

Unfortunately my husbands best friend is the plunger
That poor guy!!!!!
I think you meant he was the plugger, but your slip of the fingers has given the best laugh I have had in a long time.
Back on topic, the guy should get tested as his symptoms do sound like he could be one of us.
