If you feel like you’re sitting on a ball after a bowel movement, or if you notice that you have something sticking out of the opening, your anus, you could have what is called rectal prolapse.
Prolapse means that a body part has slipped or fallen down from its normal position. Rectal prolapse is when the rectum -- the bottom part of your large intestine -- drops down towards or outside your anus. While that may sound frightening, it is typically not considered a medical emergency. However, the longer you have the condition, the worse it can get. And living with rectal prolapse can cause embarrassment and impact your quality of life, as well.
