  • Hi Andy sorry to hear you're suffering. I get loose stools too, I think it's all about knowing what is 'normal' for you and monitoring any changes and getting professional advice if necessary. Have you seen a gp about your symptoms?

    Bowel cancer has always been one of my major worries (I'm 29) but it is rare in people of our age. If you're worried I would see your doctor and try and put your mind at rest, the Internet can't diagnose you. Good luck.

  • Hi ther thank you for replying it's just my stool is always been flat lately and I'm constipated feeling the urge to go but can't !

  • Hi

    Forget the bowel cancer thing. Extremely rare at your age. The most likely cause is something you're eating disagreeing with you. Too much roughage can cause this problem for some. (me) Add anxiety to the mix and the digestion goes haywire.
