These stools, when examined, appear to contain the faecal matter suspended in large quantities of mucus and greenish bile, as if the turgid capillaries of the irritated intestinal canal and liver had been freed from their load.
The most frequent cause is the caecum (the lower pouch of the colon) getting filled with hardened faecal matter, in which case the ileo caecal valve is obstructed, and the natural passages of the bowels stopped.
For this reason it is advisable to solicit the bowels before taking the treatment, as, if even no faecal matter is expelled, pent-up gases are frequently liberated.

Again, as we have pointed out, the colon is a wonderfully elastic organ, and it would be an impossibility to distend it with water to the same extent that it is frequently distended by faecal accumulations.
It is undoubtedly a fact that the loculi of the colon contain smallfaecal accumulations extending over weeks, months, or even years.
In the majority of cases it arises from an obstructed colon, a fermentation being generated there from the long retained faecal matter, consequently a positive and sure cure is to thoroughly cleanse that organ.
The accumulation of hardened faecal matter distends the sigmoid flexure, causing inflammation, until from its own weight it falls down, producing prolapse of the bowels.
These become the seat of faecal accumulations, only too often unnoticed by the physician.

Often the motions contain very little faecal matter, but consist only of membranes, mucus and a little blood.
The above list will hopefully give you a few useful examples demonstrating the appropriate usage of "faecal" in a variety of sentences. We hope that you will now be able to make sentences using this word.
