My husband who is in his fifties has a bowel movement at least five times a day or more. Every time he eats he has to go. This has been going on for several months now. I told him that this is not normal that he should see a doctor but he will not. I am very worried about him. Can anyone tell me if this is normal ? He was taking Celebrex for his Arthritis for a while but stopped, because he thought the pills was making him go all the time. Well, its been several months now and the problem did not go away.
