Re: Narrow stools
Dec 18, 2013
I had a change in my stools too. It was an anal fissure. It did not hurt. I had no idea what was wrong. I had to start taking laxatives to make the feces small enough to pass through my narrow anus. (I was too scared to go to the doctor or even discuss it) Many years later when colon cancer developed that is when I found out from a specialist what it was... a fissure with scar tissue.

About getting a colonoscopy...I think it will ease your mind to find that you do not have cancer of any kind. If you choose to do this, don't eat much for 3 days and on the final day just drink liquids. The less food in your body, the less that will have to come out when it is time to purge your digestive system.

Good luck to you

Let us know how it turns out.

Thank you ! But do you mean that I should not worry about these narrow stools ? I'll will take an appointment with a specialist soon to be sure. But my stools were normal two days ago (but just once, it came back narrow after and still are)
