Have you ever sh!t yer balls?!

Iím telling you, not fun. Imagine, you sit on a toilet, your bawls growl, then the brown water is coming down from your butt under great pressure. Splashes everywhere. You wash the toilet, take a shower, and repeat after another meal.

TMI? Sorry.

I really need a good GI doctor. Canít keep the food in me for more than an hour.

Thank you for your help in advance, much appreciated.

A specialist in San Francisco or the Bay Area would be great, but Iím willing to go wherever.

What Tami said, BUT DO IT NOW! This isnít Mayo Clinic stuff (hopefully) - a GP is
more than capable of sussing it out.

Giardiasis Symptoms
Giardiasis (Giardia Lamblia) Symptoms and Signs
Signs and symptoms of giardiasis can vary, and some people may be infected without showing any symptoms. Symptoms, when they occur, can last two weeks or longer. The most common symptoms are

fatty or foul-smelling stools (they may float), and
stomach or abdominal cramping.

Don't you have some kind of ongoing concerns related to GI or autoimmune type issues?

Have you ever been checked for Chrohns disease?
Nobody really WANTS barium shot up their ass or a colonoscopy, but better to know.

^^^^ Good lord, you have too much time on your hands. Funny pics though.

Go get checked out asap....a referral from your GP is how we do it in Canada. Could be the onset of a IBD flare - hopefully not as its truly a 'shitty' situation.

I battle ulcerative colitis/chrohns (depending on which doc u ask) and the ol bathroom/shower/bed dance is not unfamiliar to me.

Hope ya get it sorted.

hey there say, moosedrool... oh my... (say, don't worry about the TMI, as, we all know you and appreciate you for who you are, and know your 'moo'-- (normaly known, as, 'MO' ... your 'method of operations', as to posting here) :)

HOWEVER-- we are now greatly worried about you...
good to ask for help...

say, like labrat said:

check that out...

then, my 95 year old friend had lots of scary stuff, similar, going
on, but she had blood, too...

turned out it was stomach ulcers from too many large back-pain aspirins,
over the year (or more?) (and, she had intestine polyps) ...

she was in danger, though, of bleeding to death, :O

then-- yeah, say, didn't you mention, too, please, that
you have had other ongoing troubles?

please get well soon and do, as you are planning, and, check it out...

your wife and family love you dearly, and we, also, sure do not
want our 'moose' sick, hurt, or worse...

take care, moosedrool and keep us informed...
prayers for just the 'right open door' for the best help,
and the correct answer, to surface...

More climber spray, huh? Who you gonna call?

Youíre willing to go wherever based on a recommendation from posters in a climbing Internet forum? My GP knows a guy, and Iíll bet yours does too.

Speaking of splitting cracks, you want me to belay you on splitter cracks next week? Dude, I will take the sharp end if you don't mind. :)

Chug a bottle of Imodium and call me in the morning or eat a box of baby wipes, they did a number on my plumbing.

Seriously though, I hope you are feeling better, might just be quick bug.

Any artist will tell you that they would rather have Imodium instead of a medium. That aside, do go to the best clinic available, Moose.

Godspeed !

I know this won't help and hope that you are able to hold some food in soon, Andrzej.

But in the spirit of TMI...

First, take some Imodium AD. Then see what happens.

Sounds horrible, moosedrool.

I would not wish something like this on anyone ever.

I've had it from dysentery when I came back from Borneo and when I was in Amazon jungle.

Pepto Bismol extra strength liquid cured me both times ....

At this point just a rumour, but in Canada a lot of marijuana suppositories are thought to be in use.

Do they poop all the time?

Thank you, all.

I should have added, iíve seen a number of doctors. Had a number of tests too.

The problem is, they donít know whatís wrong. Itís been going for a few months now, and now itís just unbearable.

I need a really good specialist.

Yes, you do need a specialist, if they still don't know.... Your body chemistry must be completely whacked by now.

My supervisor had some symptoms similar, but I don't know if the effects came on afetr eating. he was finally diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis

Geez, man.

Shitting yourself hollow is supposed to be reserved for people who lead climbs, not an everyday function.

Joking aside, I hope that what ails you is something you can clear up fast.

Good luck, Moose !

What sort of crankloons have you been seeing who havenít referred you to someone competent?
