Question: number of poops per day !!!

 lorne604 - Mon Aug 13, 2007 4:31 am

nifedipine 0.2% ointment

Some days I poop like 5/6 times, they are pretty normal BM's but on the lighter side of brown and smaller.

usually I go between 2-3 per day.

What would be causing the 5/6 BM days ? it freaks me out, I think I have some crazy disease or something.

what can I do to slow my bowels to like one BM per day ?

not too mention, all this pooping is making my anal fissure worse. The nifedipine works to control pain but does not completely cure the fissure. I guess Botox is the next step, then if that fails Surgery :(
