Avatar f tn So you're hydrated, how about bowel perforations, infection, rise in your electrolytes, Certain enema preparations have been associated with heart attacks! Colon cleansing may disrupt the balance between bacteria and natural chemicals in the bowel, and may interfere with the colon's ability to shed dead cells.
Avatar m tn t know much about colon hydrotherapy or how they were able to test your feces for pin worms, but that alone would prompt me to see a doctor right away. I'm not sure if that could cause your lymph nodes to swell (maybe from inflammation), but if you have parasites you will probably need treatment for it right away.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried colon hydrotherapy ? I’ve done 3 treatments back to back already and it has decreased the symptoms but I don’t think it’s permanent. I started the treatment 3 days ago. It’s a machine that cleans out your colon for 45 min. It’s a good way to detox. I noticed after the first treatment I had less cravings for sugar. I pretty much forgot to eat for a whole day after the first treatment bc for some reason I didn’t feel hungry (I don’t recommend not eating).
Avatar m tn My questions are, are these symptoms the beginning of his down hill slope? What should we expect his symptoms to be to know when we should stop treating the cancer and only treat the symptoms? Anything you can tell me would be great.

Avatar m tn I have recently been diagnosed with FAP (Familial adenomatous polyposis) and I am soon to have my colon/large intestine out, I am 16 and will have the surgery done in march. It will be done via "keyhole" surgery. If anyone has had this done could you give me some info on what to expect based on your experences. For example: how long did it take you to be able to attend work or school? how long before you were on your regular diet, and finally what risks did you run across?
Avatar m tn And most importantly, watch your diet. The best book on what to eat and what not to eat is a book written by Dr. Don Colbert called, What Would Jesus Eat. Aviod foods that come in packages and eat real food. For example, for breakfast eat things like steel cut oats with raw fruit. For lunch eat things like a big raw salad with extra virgin olive oil and balsalmic vinegar, some feta cheese made from goat's milk (dairy from cow's milk is constipating.
Avatar f tn I am starting to wean myself off of my back brace and will begin hydrotherapy soon. My doctor wants to start me with hydrotherapy first and then progress to the ground physical therapy. Should I expect to feel sore after my therapy sessions? The hydrotherapy sounds like it will feel good, but since I've never had any kind of back trauma or surgery... I welcome any input from others. It's interesting to know that a change in atmosphere brings on an arthritic type of pain.
Avatar f tn After doing the program for a week, I also had colon hydrotherapy to pull everything out of my colon that was undigested. It was so much stuff that came out..now I go to the bathroom daily and have continued to lose the weight. Maybe you should try this method.
473493 tn?1236836912 I also followed up with doing colon hydrotherapy to cleanse my system so that I could go to the bathroom regularly. After the session, I lost a whopping 7lbs! Now this is not typical, I just had a lot of gunk in my colon that needed to come out. I also used a natural appetite suppressant that helped curb my appetite. It worked wonders for me and it could help with your problem as well.
Avatar f tn I would go on a parasite cleanse. Parasites tend to cause G.I. spasms, especially when something is consumed that can potentially harm them. Easiest way to do this is go on a juice cleanse for a few days, buy some black walnut wormwood liquid and drink that, eat some pumpkin seeds, and consume some food grade diatomaceous earth which would kill the parasites.
Avatar f tn This was traditionally done for familial polyposis and typically results in 5 or 6 stools daily. What has been a much better compromise has been to remove the sigmoid colon when this has been the focus of the diverticulitis. Although there is still a chance of future diverticulitis the chance is reduced by approximately 90%. it sounds like what your surgeon was saying was that, at that time, all of your diverticulae were in the area that was taken out.
Avatar n tn please see a urogynecologist...you most likely have pelvic organ prolapse! I developed this after my hysterectomy and also look into pelvic floor dysfunction...I understand your misery as I have been living since 2005...went from laxatives, to mag citrate to enemas to colon hydrotherapy...dr's saying I was addicted to the above methods...after a 6.5 hour surgery correcting my anatomy I went from the above methods to going 4-8 times a day...
Avatar m tn And by Professional, Molly means seek an appointment with your PCP ASAP and ask for or I would at least expect a referral to a rheumatologist. Heat sometimes can help halt pain due to inflammation and numb pain. What you are doing, is engaging in hydrotherapy. Which is one of many types of heat therapy..there is cold therapy too but that is another story. I have FMS, and UC-Pancolitis so I am blessed with Auto-Immune Disorders and the wonderful pain that comes along. Just my advice...
282804 tn?1236833591 t pay much attention to it all. Could you all tell me what to expect from the Avastin, how to prep for this, what the side effects may be etc. I am sorry I haven't been here. I am tired ALL of the time, in pain most of the time and some part of everyday is devoted to heaving. I am living like I am dead already and I don't know how to get past that. There is so much stuff reeling in my head but when I try to write about it, it just seems so heavy & difficult.
Avatar f tn I have ice packs prepared as per the recommended preemie diaper icing method. But I have been given no idea what to expect, other than to fill the script for pain meds and stay off my feet. My house is a tri-level, with the bedroom 7 steps upstairs. Will I be OK to get upstairs with help? Or is that too much of an initial exertion, meaning I should plan to sleep on the couch in the living room for the first night?

In other words there are medical conditions which justify you going to a doctor and asking for a diagnosis and treatment. Try not to become dependent on laxatives but eat a high fibre diet including fresh fruit and vegetables.
Avatar f tn PageMarie, look for posts by Morecambe who has had the entire large intestine removed. Those posts will give you a good idea of what to expect and how to handle the changes that will result because that portion of the intestine is gone. In many cases such as the one you're describing, the end of the small intestine is attached to the rectum without the use of a temporary bag.
Avatar m tn Took him back to Vet to be prescribed with Antibiotics for an infection verified by blood test culture under microscope. It was either dirt on his skin caused it or the vaccine itself according to my research. Its Monday (7days later) and his leg is huge. Alot of fluid. Back to the vets for drainage after I called (sight unseen). I tried warm compresses and now he has no appetite, is miserable. Not eating anything.
Avatar m tn It does appear to be in the soft tissue, and does not seem to be connected to the large hernia. Could this cause irregular bowell movements? The reason I ask is because I have battled with this problem for years as well. I have added fiber to my diet and gone as far as having a colonic( colon hydrotherapy), without significant results.Thank you for your response.
Avatar f tn Hello! I'm a 34 yr old female. I have had Crohns for 12 yrs and in July '08 had to have an ileostomy. On Dec 17th, I am going in for a reversal, the only complication is that the Doctor are going to have to remove most of my colon due to the damage from the disease. I'm excited about getting rid of the bag but nervous because I don't want the disease to return. Also, don't know what to expect after the surgery. I came through the first surgery with no problems.
