Colon pain help

Common Questions and Answers about Colon pain help


Avatar m tn I would ask your doc about prescribing some anti-spasm medications which should calm down the pain your colon is producing. The water leaking could be due to the uncontrolled spasms/pain your colon is producing. Also, things like peppermint tea has been known to be a natural antispasm remedy. Drinking a few of these a day can help out.
Avatar f tn I get this intense pain in what seems to be my colon but cant say for sure just know it hurts and is intense.It can last up to ten minutes then goesaway .
Avatar n tn Is there anyone who suffers from severe colon spasms, bloating, back pain with attacks and last for several days. Drs say its irritable bowel syndrome but, i have tried several medications for irritable bowel syndrome and nothing seems to help me except for a heating pad and being confined to the bed for several days until the attack subsides.
Avatar f tn Hello I was feeling allot of pain in my intestines. So I went to the hospital and they did a MRI. The doctor said that the intestines were swollen and that there was a small spot in my liver. He said most likely I have colon cancer. I am going to do a colonoscapy but am very scared. Could this be cancer?
974534 tn?1301956787 Yes, anxiety and stress can make you feel pain in the location you're describing. Your descending colon is on the left side of your abdomen. The pain you're describing is usually in the descending colon. I get this pain for the same reason. It is common with IBS.
Avatar f tn During this time my energy is decreased. My pain level is high at least during the evenings and a dull achey level during the day. My stomach hurts just to lay straight on the couch. As I continue to have a small bowel movement through the evening the pain will gradually decrease but not go away. I am familiar with a "flair up" as my doctor calls it in my intestines and this does not seem to be that. IS THIS MY GALL BLADDER? What can I do to eliminate this problem?
Avatar f tn Hello, my grandfather is 55 years old and had always been in great health until polyps were found in his colon. He got them removed then shortly after was told he needed surgery. He elected to do the labroscopic (spelling sorry) surgery as opposed to the open surgery. He did not recieve a single CT scan before the surgery so during the surgery the doctor slipped and ended up cutting him open and taking out 60% of his colon. Home from the hospital for 9 days he called the dr.
Avatar n tn now sometimes a lot of pain can be referred pain and so the pain u actually had in the right appeared on the left sounds confusing but it can be quite dificult to locate pain in the abdomen check with your doc
1413243 tn?1281795471 It might be a compunded problem. I would advise her to see a gastroenterologist and go from there. My problems started like that and I was diagnosed with diverticultis...eventually it led to surgery for stage III colon cancer. Do not wait...early detection is what saved my life!
Avatar m tn It all started on Wednesday when i woke up with a stomach pain. The stomach pain is almost gone now, but the flatulence scares me a lot... I tried to find the reasons for the flatulence and what i have read is that it can be symptom of colon cancer... The stool for now is OK. I really want to know the first sign of colon cancer. What I've also read is that all this can be stress related and I've been under stress for a long time almost falling into depression... Please help!
Avatar m tn Ok Ive had 4 brain surgs & one colon cancer surg, stage 1.The pain Im experiencing is right lower abdomen almost in the crease between my leg & abdomen.Its not getting any better. Sometimes the pain is sharp & sometimes a burning pain. Its stronger if I have my legs crossed for a little. It happens walking, standing & sitting. Sometime the pain is extremly sudden.
Avatar n tn I get nausiated a lot and have the occasional abdominal pain but what is causing it? My doctor originally thought I had kidneystones, but because I am so backed up they could not get a clear picture of it. What should I do?
Avatar f tn I have been eating as much green foods as possible. Do you have any advice and what if any procedures could help me at this point. I can't get alot of time off of work to deal with this so it needs to be figured out any feed back will help.
Avatar f tn I am more and more convinced this is something to do with my colon as the pain in my ab is over the sigmoid colon. Also i have had IBS for 10 years but always had diorrhea and very rarely constipation.For the past 4 months i have had difficulty passing a motion and gas has increased. I have a good diet and lots of excersise and drink tons of water. It doesnt hurt to defecete.
1391134 tn?1280008443 I have a sharp pain on the left side around my colon. it hurts usually all the time but here and there it doesnt. when i lie down or bend over is when it hurts the most. i didnt wanna go get checked out for something dumb so i wanted to get other opinions on what the deal is.
Avatar f tn I actually have a throbbing type sensation on the vaginal area all the time after intercourse. I always thought it was the strangest thing and honestly I've never asked my doc about it. It goes away after about an hour, but again mine isn't painful, just odd. What you are describing makes me think of the pain I had for years. They are called colon spasms.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that diverticulosis may have developed in my ascending colon? The pain in my lower abdomen is not like the pain I had when I had diverticulitis but I can't help but wonder if this is what I have again. Thank you.
Avatar n tn can colon cancer cause back pain? I have lower back pain , have had skinny riibboned shaped #2. now have to strain and seems less and less is happening!
Avatar n tn Such dosages are ineffective for this sort of pain. If the pain is colon pain, an antispasmodic can help with the pain, but the problem with the antispasmodic if the colon is already slow and tends to be constipated already, the antispasmodic can worsen that kind of problem as well, because it will slow the colon down even more. A hot water bottle may help with the pain--some.
Avatar f tn My question is, is the left ovary located in the front, with the sigmoid colon running behind it, or is the left ovary and sigmoid colon side by side or is the left ovary located behind the sigmoid colon? The reason for this is because I can feel a lump in my lower left side, right where I think my left ovary is located, however, know that the sigmoid colon is located in this same area and so I'm trying to determine whether the lump is caused by my ovary or by my colon?
1173929 tn?1263534416 He can't explain it because he doesn't know, or care enough to find out. You're absolutely right in not accepting this excuse. Get a second opinion and not one from anyone associated with him. My son had stomach pain after removal of his colon, his doctor told him it was scar tissue and to live with it. He insisted something was wrong and opted for exploratory surgery, he had a large tumor attached to his aorta. and we lost him at 31.
Avatar m tn I suffered from pelvic dysfunction pain and impacted mucus in my colon causing severe rectal pain. My oncologist removed my colon, rectum and anus and i have a permanet ileostomy. Its changed my life and I had been on massive pain meds for 9 years and now I take pain meds as needed. Get the diseased parts removed since he has a colostomy anyway, he doesnt need the other parts. I cannot express how much suffering i experienced and now I am living a new life.
Avatar n tn If the gallbladder was inflammed and putting out chemical mediators into the surrounding tissues that caused the adhesions to form in the first place, it's very possible that the colon may still be irritated after the connective tissue adhesions were removed. It may take awhile for that situation to resolve, especially since you've just had an organ removed and you're slowly healing from that.
Avatar f tn I have had chronic vaginal and rectal pain for a very long time. I now am having leakage from my rectum. I had a colon scope about 6 months ago everything was fine. I have been trying to get another colon scope done but my doctor is always booked up or is on vacation. At this point I am in so much sever chronic rectal pain the only relief I get is when I am asleep. My GI doctor has had me on several pain medications that do not work. anymore.
