Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.
Well, I have a confession, and a question. Once in very great once in a while, I actually DO fart out of me bum. Of course this amazes me, and worries me at the same time! Just a little poot mind you, nothing to compare to Grahame my partners window rattlers.
I must say, it's most...satisfying! However, it makes me wonder if it isn't a wee fistula or something. Let's hope not. Perhaps me bum swallows air and has to belch, who knows??? :ybatty:
As for farts - yes I have the occasional small one - I presume the bacteria in the colon can still produce gas?????? But only guessing. Or maybe when the bag is full of gas some slips down the little opening to the lower half ??????
I can't anymore, but do pass stuff from bum sometimes - which is weird - cos when I have a look (sorry), it looks like bits of intestine or something - it's really weird. I often feel quite sorry that I can't anymore, and sometimes actually miss going to the loo :O, or rather the normality of it I spose.
