why do i keep passing loose stools?

loose stools colon

I’ll get a sudden attack when i’m on the train or somewhere cold. heart starts racing, get out of breath and feel like shitting. when i wake up in the morning, my hands would feel unbearably cold, and i would have loose stools or diarrhoea.
I’ve had lymphoma tumour removed in my intestines a few years back, finish my chemotherapy and i’m entering my fifth year. the loose stools get worst every year, but the CT scans and colonoscopy came back negative, so what can I do now? Is it because I do not have enough good bacteria in my colon to help form the stools? or is there some other underlying problem? I’ve been to numerous doctors and i’m getting desperate, i can’t go out often as i would suddenly feel the urge to shit and it’s really unbearable…

  1. Just Somebody says:

    Loose stools with your history of intestinal surgery are not uncommon. The body holds stool in the large intestines until the walls are streched enough to signal the need release it. If you had the cancer on the lower part of your large intestine/rectum then this might apply. If the walls of the rectum were operated on then they might not have the same elasticity as before and a little pressure on them from stool sitting there might signal the need to go to early. You normally absorp water from stool in the intestine while it passes. If your intestines are signaling to soon to release then watery stool is the result. A few other posibilities are nerve damage during the surgery that interferes with signaling from your intestines to your brain. You should ask your Dr. to evalulate the surgery and see if anything done then could cause this. Also keep in mind that anxiety can increase sympathetic stimulation of the intestines and move food too fast and result in loose stool. If there was nerve damage done during your surgery and some Parasympathetic nerves were damaged then your sympathetic system will be unopposed and the slightest excitment that would lead to a slight sympathetic response (increase heart rate, clammy hands) can have a larger impact on any area that might not have full parasympathetic control. If I went over your head just remember that the sympathetic system and parasympathetic systems work in unison to balance each other out. If one is gone, then the other will be unoppoed. I hope this gives you some more options to look into and congrats on your 5 years!
