Common Questions and Answers about Colon pain symptoms doctor


Avatar n tn Is loose stool a symptom of colon cancer because my doctor says it is constipation that can signal colon cancer.
Avatar m tn I have had recurring left side lower back pain that I think could be related to the colon. It only occurs in the morning (I usually go to the bathroom to relieve in the morning) and has been happening for a few months now. My health problems started 2 years ago with pain on the left lower back as well, and doctors still have not been able to find a problem after tons of tests. I had gallbladder surgery about a year ago, and was fine for a while afterward.
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 have had bowel issues all my life. About three years ago I got sick of them and went for a colonoscopy. I was told I had no polyps, hemmeroids and minimal diverticulosis. Follow up in 5 years with repeat colonoscopy. About 6 months after this first colonoscopy I had rectal bleeding for a full day. Lots of it. Not just streaked stool but toilet bowl full of blood.
449658 tn?1211304322 I am a 26 year old female - I just had a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy with my gyno last week due to severe pain in my lower right abdomen. I have pain when having a bm and pain all the time! All I know so far is that she did see some adhesions on my colon - i will know more next week when i meet with my docotor for the follow up results. I also have pain with intercourse and putting in a tampon.
Avatar m tn I had the exact same symptoms as you describe above and it turned out to be gluten intolerance. I don't eat anything with wheat, barley, rye or oats in it. You can give the diet a try to see if it helps. You'll need to educate yourself first before starting it. Even the vitamins have to be gluten free (Nature Made brand). Mention this to the doctor and see what he/she thinks. My brother was a few days away from surgery to have his colon resected.
Avatar f tn My GI says we should just do the daily enemas for now but I am in constant discomfort with back pain and fatigue, and the enemas are no longer offering relief. What type of doctor do I need now, after my GI and colon surgeon. Are there motility specialists? I need an in-between enemas and surgery. How can I find someone, preferrably in Texas or Louisiana. My doctor said he would maybe consider the Mayo clinic down the road but I need something now, and preferrably closer to Louisiana.
231903 tn?1281482584 1) I have constant (non-stop) lower back pain (right above my bottom). It started out in the center of my lower back, but its more on the left side now. Occasionally it will shoot pain around to my left side, even sometimes through my buttocks and upper legs. This has been constant since feb 12. 2) a few days ago i randomly struck a fever that was consistant for about 8 hours (stayed between 101 and 102) Then the next day, no fever.
Avatar m tn My husband's 1st wife had colon cancer. It was discovered too late, & she passed away at the age of 24 saddly. Your symptoms don't sound like what my husband told me she had. She started having symptoms in her late teens... chronic constipation, stomach pain, etc. One day while she was away at college, she started throwing up really hard & thought she had a virus. She was staying really tired & just couldn't shake it.
Avatar n tn Can you describe the pain you feel? Abdominal pain is rare in colon cancer. Cancer of the colon and rectum can exhibit itself in several ways such as: bleeding from your rectum or blood mixed with your stool; fatigue and pale skin; abdominal distension; abdominal pain; persistent nausea or vomiting; unexplained weight loss; change in frequency or character of stool; sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement or rectal pain. The duration of symptoms usually takes 14 weeks.
Avatar m tn But any ways i was reading online and my symptoms sound similer to colon cancer or ibs anybody got any suggestions im going to the doctor on my next day off just a little tierd of not knowing what it is
Avatar m tn After 3 months I had a severe diarhea and convinced myself that i had colon cancer. My doctor sent me for CBC, occult blood test, liver enzimes, ESR, tumor marker, ultrasound and finally a CT scan with oral contrast,Nothing was found, He told me i have IBS. The issue its that my abdominal pain continues and i tend to develop very loose stools.
Avatar m tn Yes, I went to the doctor will all the symptoms of Hepatitis and a liver test that showed enzymes 9 times the normal limit. I figured I just ate something in a resturaunt that was tainted with Hepatitis. My gastro doctor was very thorough. Talked to me for an hour and wrote down everything, My hepatitis profile came back negative, so then he gave me a thorough exam and wanted me to have the endoscopy the next day, he squeezed me in. The fact that I had lost 25 pounds bothered him.
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 m tn the area is very bloated and the pain never lets up. for some reason, that i cannot understand, codeine stops all of these symptoms and i feel normal for a short while. codeine is an awfull drug and i cannot do this anymore...please help me. i have had a CT scan, barium enima, and colonoscopy. all of which were normal.
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 m tn My question is does anyone have a solution for the pain? I can deal with the bloating but the stomach pains are becoming unbearable. My doctor prescribed me some medication but it was not covered by my insurance. This issue is really starting to interfere with my daily activities such as work.
Avatar m tn About 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Diverticulosis. I had actually went from constant diarrhea to constipation. I would go sometimes up to 2 weeks without a bowel movement which I know is very dangerous and it was also very painful. What I need to know is if some of the symptoms that I am having is caused from this or something else. I have a lot of pain sometimes in my back as well as down both of my legs.
Avatar f tn t aware that laying on their right side can cause gas to build up in your colon and form a gas bubble. The way the colon is shaped and with the gas rising upward, when laying on the right side it gets trapped in the ascending and transverse sections of the colon and is not as easily expelled as it is when laying on the left side. I recommend trying some OTC treatments like beano, gas X, prilosec, prevacid, Mylanta, mylox etc. for a few days.
1440074 tn?1283996071 starting on Sunday, I have been having very severe anal spasms along with a ton of pain, and some itching. It is very hard to sleep at night due to the pain. I have not been constipated, so I don't think it would be hemmorroids. It does not hurt to go to the bathroom either. The pain is pretty constant with spasms very often, and when I have a spasm the pain is so intense that it causes my entire body to tremble. I would describe the pain as almost like a bite near my butthole.
