Customer Question

Here is my scenario l. I've had thin bowel movement for the last few days(I'm 34 male). This morning I had a good size stool pass thru a thickness standpoint but was very small. I got worried that I was constipated and took 2 Enama's and nothing but liquid came out. I went to ER and they confirmed no impaction. They told me to take Magnisium Citrate which I did and a few hours later a lot of liquid is coming out that is color of stool and extremely small(paper tear) soft stools with it. Did all this med turn my stool into liquid or is going around a possible impaction they didn't notice?

So they didn't check how much stool you have in the abdomen. How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any other symptoms such as abdominal pain and bloating? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any other medications? Any family medical history?

Thy did not, since I had some movement in that's few days. I'm 5'8, 160 pounds, no other issues. Had hemorrhoids removed a year ago. My big thing is the this combination of fleet enema and Magnisium citrate later in the day turn my stool in liquid or is just water that's passing without stool?

I do feel bloated l, they pressed down on my intestine area and said it did not seem full at all

A thin bowel movement does not mean you have impaction.

There is no indication of impaction in your story at all.

It sounds like you have had laxative and enemas, which have given you liquid stool.
