To the OP: (whom I just noticed posted this nearly a year ago) Swim
would have to agree with swiLobsang, since it is very difficult to understand what exactly you're asking. Often swim is offset from the way communication exists at this site due to how members' use of 'swim' and how effective they're able to convey the subject w\o becoming too ambiguous. Other times it can be a few simple typo's that clouds the question being asked beyond comprehension. Then there are the questions that are lost upon swim just because the question or post is just too confusing or littered w\ incomplete questions that trail into another statement or question in the post making it a difficult read and even harder for one to get an appropriate response. So before posting swiyour question, use the preview feature & definitely read it back swiyourself. Be sure that the questions asked are clear, easily enough understood and everything makes sense before proceeding to submit the post. The reason swiyour post is confusing is: If swiyour having an issue controlling bladder, how is constipation a problem? Bladders only hold urine and not any crap, poop, shit, feces, or whatever description is preferred. If swiy believes that constipation has contributed to having an overwhelmingly foul body odor, read the info I had to paste down below (since making a link to another site it is prohibited , there's more info such as treatment procedures available on website noted above the text pasted below so you should definitely take a look)
and then schedule an appointment to get checked out. When seeing the doctor, be blunt about the issue; explain the problem and don't be concerned about using pretty words to describe an ugly problem. Just apologize beforehand if swiy thinks it might be overly offensive. And while I doubt that using methamphetamine
is the ultimate cause of the problem, it certainly dehydrates the body rather significantly, so if swiy has always had constipation problems; using meth
is most likely making it even more difficult to eliminate the already "troubled" waste if swiy isn't drinking the extra liquids to properly hydrate oneself. Thus mentioning drug
habits isn't completely necessary, however this decision is swiyours to make. But personally, I don't think swim would do it unless whatever the medical professional prescribes on the initial visit doesn't seem to help the problem any. Then perhaps mention it on the followup visit if condition hasn't improved. Swim realizes that this isn't a "light read" but hopefully might just find some help to swiyour problem. Good luck

What Is Encopresis and What to Do About It? Encopresis is something to be aware of when there are possible intestinal health problems. It is more common than you might guess, especially in children. Encopresis can be thought of as constipation gone out of control. When the waste in the colon builds up for any number of reasons, you have constipation. If this is not relieved reasonably soon, the person can becomed impacted. An X-ray can show if there is impaction, if you want one done. At times, the solid waste builds up and causes the colon to expand to accommodate the growing mass. The colon can expand up to four times its typical size. Liquid waste may seep around the solid mass as well. This leads to streaking or staining in the underwear, smaller ‘droppings’ coming through, or what appears to be alternating constipation and diarrhea. Or constipation and a thick, pasty output. If you see any of these, consider encopresis and deal with it immediately because toxins may be stagnating in the colon and lead to even more problems. The polluted environment in the colon may be killing off the beneficial bacteria and allowing an overgrowth of the harmful toxic bacteria. This can produce an incredibly strong smell. You may also notice strong body odor or bad breath even if the person just took a shower or recently brushed their teeth.
To treat encopresis, there are some options. If there is serious impaction, consult your medical care professional for ideas. The usual treatment suggests giving a laxative or enema to start breaking up the mass and eliminating it. Magnesium is a very natural route and works as a laxative at higher doses. Because magnesium deficiency is so common, this supplement might help with any additional magnesium needs at the same time. Some people opt to give one of the laxative products from the pharmacy or grocery store and use according to directions. Next, plan on keeping a very definite schedule of when the person goes to the bathroom to ‘try’ and see if anything comes out. The person should go to the bathroom about ten minutes after eating breakfast and dinner at least, and any other time after eating you can remember or it is convenient. The person should ‘try’ for about ten minutes long. This part is very, very essential to the program because it takes advantage of the body’s natural digestive movements, and helps the body to get back into a proper elimination pattern. It is common enough that the person may not be able to feel when they needed to go to the bathroom. They genuinely cannot feel the sensations. This may be due to the person having sensory integration dysfunction. When the person initially does not have the sensory feedback of when he needs to go, the constipation builds up, and then the problem perpetuates. Another route is that you may become constipated first, and as the colon stretches out, the nerves are no longer close to and in rhythm with the amount of waste. Even if the mass is eliminated, the colon is so stretched out that it will not sense the build up of more waste until another massive amount accumulates. The problem again perpetuates itself. Scheduling times to ‘try’ is very important, because it does not rely on the person feeling the need to go.
Adjust the diet to favor looser stools. Include more fiber and pure water. Many people also include something like mineral oil, commercial fiber products, or magnesium on a daily basis to keep things loose.
This anti-encopresis program needs to be kept up for a good six months or more. It is very common to see good results by the third or fourth month and to give it up because the person appears to be doing well. What happens is that you may have reestablished a good elimination pattern, but the colon has not yet contracted back to its original size. Some people are also very prone to becoming constipated and the situation can recur easily. So it is good to plan on six months or more.
If bacteria overgrowth has occurred you may want to consider a probiotic supplement at least for a while until the colon is normalized again. If the person has sensory integration issues, there are exercises available that can help regain better feeling in this area.

To JudasTheJunkie: No, it isn't very likely,...at all! Maybe if the odd chance the meth caused your immune system to take a hit, but again even that seems unlikely. What most likely happened was that swiy ate something that caused a mild case of food poisoning. Swim says mild because a good case of food poisoning makes one have stuff coming out of both ends, that is vomiting & diarrhea (cha cha cha). This becomes dangerous once the body is unable to hydrate itself from the lack of being able to keep any food or drink in stomach w\o puking it up. If this happens, one will find his ass sitting in the emergency room on an extremely uncomfortable hospital bed getting fluids from an I.V. drip bag that you eventually find out is very expensive and is a really slow process.
