Avatar n tn within three days i was in the hospital for a week, CT scan showed a colon abscess, i dodged emergency surgery and responded to IV antibiotics. now i'm two months out of the hospital and a GI and surgical followup recommends bowel resection. i've read that the bowel does not repair itself. what should i do? also could the abscess have actually been caused by the colonoscopy. thanks.
Avatar n tn (Almost like you’re always menstruating). Have you had changes in your bowel movements? Are you regular? Are you constipated or having diarrhea? Or maybe both? Because you are losing blood you need to make sure that you aren’t becoming anemic. Stick out your tongue in the mirror (next to someone else would help!) is it pale? Check the skin under your eyelids and the palms of your hand. The paler they are, the more concerned you should be.
Avatar n tn My husband had his colon, rectum, & anus removed 4 weeks ago. He has an abscess in the rectum area. The Intervention Radiology department put in a drain and he is taking antibiotics. Do you think that an abscess can be conquered? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587000'>vitamins</a>.
Avatar f tn Dr is admitting me to the hospital 1 pm sunday, with surgery scheduled for the next morning - laparoscopy for a tubal abscess, with potential to go further if necessary. he wants hospital to do a bowel prep starting at 6 pm with mag. cit. and then ducolax 2 hours later. I'm trying to figure out what to expect - am I going to be up all night long? (is there anything I can do/eat/not eat to avoid it taking longer than necessary? A little sleep the night before surgery might be nice.
Avatar n tn I urge you to find a very good pediatric Gastro-enterologist and maybe a Neurologist too, who can ACCURATELY diagnose your son. Read the "inserts" of any medications he might be on, or that he's taken, to see what some of the bad side effects might be. This includes vaccinations that sometimes have "adverse" (bad) effects on some people.
Avatar n tn Over the past few days, I developed some symptoms relating to my bowel movements. In general, my bowel movements have been rather loose. Also, they tend to produce smaller stools (1 cm diameter). These bowel movements typically occur about an hour or so after I wake up. Afterwards, I no longer feel the need for another movement until early afternoon, where I’ll start feeling the need to have a bowel movement originating in my rectum (not abdomen).
Avatar f tn This is my second surgery for resection the first was in 2005 with the ilovalve removed and assending colon. Then in Jan 2008 I had surgery for a small bowel obstruction, and now in June 2008 another colon resection and all of my small bowel was taken out and worked over for adhesions! Some days are terrible as I either have constipation or loose stools. When I don't go I bloat and have cramps.
Avatar n tn Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) Crohn's disease Ulcerative colitis Anorectal abscess Infectious colitis (infection of the colon) Colorectal cancer or tumors Radiation proctitis or colitis (inflammation of the colon or rectum from radiation) Perhaps if the thought was infections colitis, then antibiotics would help. Tenesmus can also be caused by prostatitis - in which case antibiotics would help. However, without a clear diagnosis I cannot be sure what is causing your symptoms.
Avatar f tn You then probably have non obstructive cholestasis. This can be caused by drugs (Questran in your case), an abscess in liver (bacterial usually), alcoholic liver disease, lymphoma, pregnancy (may be ruled out in your case), primary biliary cirrhosis, pancreatitis, amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, and tuberculosis.
Avatar n tn Hi, Prior to this have you noted any changes in bowel movement lately? Have you noted any itchiness or pain in the area? Was there any history of trauma near the involved area or in the lower abdomen? Differentials will be a skin infection (boil), a skin tag, hemorrhoids or warts. These are just differentials. You have noted that the lesion is bluish or purplish in color.This may suggest a vascular origin. Have you noted any enlargement or protrusion of the lesion when you strain?
Avatar n tn He is 59, a chronic smoker who had poor nutritional habits, and he just had a perforated bowel from an abscess that burst. This happened 2.5 weeks ago, and the surgeon opted to patch the bowel instead of giving him a colostomy. This was all done laprascopically.
Avatar f tn Hello, The various possibilities which present with such pain in the abdomen are appendicitis, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, bowel obstruction, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancy and pelvic inflammatory disease,irritable bowel syndrome , kidney obstruction or pyelonephritis, psoas abscess and volvolus (twisting of the sigmoid part of the large bowel on itself). Investigations like ultrasound abdomen, CT abdomen and colonoscopy are required to confirm a diagnosis.
Avatar m tn The fistula is linked to alot of bad things .Most anal fistulas originate in anal crypts, which become infected with abscess formation. When the abscess is opened or ruptures, a fistula is formedcauses of anal fistulas include opened perianal or ischiorectal abscesses, which drain spontaneously through these fistulous tracts. Fistulas are also found in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, particularly Crohn disease.[3] The incidence of fissures in Crohn disease is 30-50%.
Avatar n tn Since Sep 2003 (13 months) I have been having bowel problems. The problem is that I have a bowel movement in the morning after waking up. I feel like I have not completely evacuated the bowels. Then when I get to the office I feel like having a bowel movement again and I do have a bowel movement. Once again after lunch I have a bowel movement if the lunch is slightly heavy. I had a sigmoidoscopy in Feb that was unremarkable.
Avatar n tn My question is, why do I have bowel movements 3 to 4 times a day? is there anything that I can take to make me not go so much per day, could I have IMS?
Avatar f tn Again, doesn't hurt while having bowel movements, nor when pressing around in the area. Just hurts inside somewhere. Other things that have been going on with my health that I find unusual considering I was (before this lump mess) a completely healthy person. Never had any illnesses or diseases, etc. No history of anything in the family and so on. But... in the past few years I developed yeast infections, and they don't go away.
Avatar n tn painful lumps in the anus/rectum, pain and swelling in the anus or buttocks area, painful bowel movements, fever/ or night sweats, and abdominal pain. Antibiotics treat the infection that has caused the abscess. The specific antibiotic depends on what infectious organism has caused the abscess. Whether the abscess is drained or not, antibiotics are always used to treat the underlying infection. Needle aspiration of the abscess to remove the infectious fluid.

Avatar f tn Since then, it seems that when I get sick, I get really sick, including a most recent upper respiratory infection that turned into walking pneumonia even though the rest of my family seemed to recover in about a week. I have also noticed bowel changes starting last fall with periods of loose stool (not diarhhea) and frequent mucus in stool. I am now also experiencing nausea, severe bloating, upper left quadrant abdominal pain, stomach pain and loud bowel sounds.

Avatar f tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! There are many things you can do to lessen the discomfort. "Keep a stress diary. Persons with an irritable bowel have an intestinal system that overreacts to food, stress, and hormonal changes. "Think of your irritable bowel as a built-in barometer, and use it to help you determine what things in your life are most stressful," “Log in your food and beverage intake, too.
Avatar m tn Hello, Dull pain in rectal area can be due to hemorrhoids, anal fissure, levator ani or proctalgia fugax. Sometimes anorectal abscess and inflammatory bowel disease can also cause such pain. Proctalgia fugax is a severe, episodic, anal pain that occurs due to contraction of the anal muscles. Treatment involves warm sitz baths, over the counter pain killers like ibuprofen and botox shots in severe cases. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a surgeon.

Avatar m tn She had her temporary colostomy done 2/10 due to diverticulitis resulting in bowel obstruction. After agonizing for almost a yr whether she wanted to undergo surgery to take it down she started experiencing bowel movement thru rectum. Naturally it was disconcerting and she went back to the surgeon who put it in place. I wasnt there on the visit but she says he told her that he had left part of the colon connected and that explained the bowel coming thru.
Avatar f tn Hello, The various possibilities which present with such pain in the lower left abdomen are diverticulitis(due to the out pouching of the wall of the bowel like out growing fingers outside the walls of the bowel, mainly affecting the sigmoid colon), Crohn’s disease(inflammatory bowel disease if effects the descending or sigmoid colon) , bowel obstruction, ovarian cysts and pelvic inflammatory disease,irritable bowel syndrome , kidney obstruction or pyelonephritis, psoas abscess and volvolus (t
Avatar n tn later that night i woke myself up it was kind if bothering me and when I felt it it had doubled in size. now it was 2in x 2in aprox. The next day again in the shower, there was another one directly above my anus both of these inside my skin. I have no pain at all. I do have to manage constipation with water and fiber, and sometimes laxitives. Even with this ,when I go B.M. it feels like things are not in a straight line, but sitting off to the side, kind of like in a pouch.
Avatar f tn However, after 3 days of lying in a hospital bed with a drip in my hand I was sent home with a prescription for paracetemol and still not knowing what was wrong with me. I have since been experiencing occasional shooting pains in around my pelvic region and lower back, still very heavy periods, headaches, fatigue and sometimes some pain in certain positions during sex. Is it all in my head and if not, what is the next step I should take?? Please help as I am going out of my mind with worry.
