Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple of questions to see if I can better assess your situation.

How long has this been going on for?

Any blood in the diarrhea?

Is he straining to defecate with very little stool coming out at time, or does he seem like he all of a sudden cannot hold it?
