Thin bowel movement in ibs-d

Is it typical for ibs? Thin as a pencil and long (usually if it happens in quick succession of a meal) and matched with an incomplete movement, causing to get up and then sit down again until you're sure it's finished (Far as i know this is also a symptom for bowel cancer) or small pieces that's not as sticky but as little as peas in volume and more obvious when it's complete. Yeah i know it's a messed up bussines to mention but just wonder if anyone experience these. ( I'm using loperamide hydrochloride, which i think doesn't prevent the fast movement of food but reduces the water content if only it's not a supercharged fast movement led by a severe anxiety and if enough time has passed after having meal) never having normal sized movement anymore, wonder if it's possible in the case of ibs-d without having anything obstructing bowels.

  • Although I have constipation dominent IBS I have similar problems but I have found that following a low FODMAP diet under the guidance of a dietician is helping enormously. I am still on the elimination diet and yet to start the challenges so we have yet to see how that works......

  • It's not only me, as it turns out. I'm just trying to prove myself that I'm not cancer. It wouldn't surprise me that much though, if i were diagnosed so. Thanks for your replies.
