Thanks for the replies. Panther, I'd be the first to agree with you if I didn't continue to see it myself every night. What I'm trying to determine is what exactly happens when you have a normal full bowel, connected to your ass, and you "push". Are you just controlling the sphincter muscle, the ileocecal valve or does the whole bowel contract? I've looked online and so far haven't found an answer. If when we "push" our brain only sends a signal to the sphincter muscle....then I must be seeing things. But if the whole bowel contracts on command......it would explain what I'm seeing. I doubt pushing would have any effect on the ileocecal valve, not that I have one anymore.
So here's why I think we have some control. I tend to not eat much during the day, as I'm always outside working on way too many projects. Eating is just time I can't spend doing things I like. But when it gets dark I come in and eat like a pig. Being short gutted I can eat anything and as much of it as I want without gaining a pound. So I eat....it's fun. Pizza...check. Pint of heavy whipping cream.....check. Half a gallon of ice cream.....sure, why not....don't want it to get freezer burn. So I naturally have a LOT of output. Got to pay the piper, so to speak. If I kneel in front of the toilet and count.....I get output every 10 or 15 seconds. It's not a burst, just a slow flow for a second and then it stops........then nothing for 10 to 15 seconds and then it repeats. If I wait until say 13 seconds and "push"......it shoots out of me like shooting a water pistol. And I can do it repeatedly. Maybe I should make a video......... No, really. So by "control" I don't mean I can stop flow or even really influence it much.........but apparently I can increase the size (magnitude) of the peristalic contraction. So I was wondering if you guys can do it too.
