Common Questions and Answers about Colon problems constipation


Avatar n tn You have had a coloscopy that is recent and your findings at that time were not such to raise the suspicions of colon cancer then or now with your doctor. Colon cancer is slow growing and that is why screenings are important because it allows it to be caught in treatable stages. The family history you have has already been taken into consideration. I would think a question for the doctor would be if the insurance company was not an issue, would they think you needed a colonoscopy right now?
Avatar n tn when i was 5 (50 years ago) i was diagnosed with an enlarged colon. It took me 2 weeks to have a bowel movement and when i did it hurt sooo bad. I was hospitalized and I was told that the docotrs somehow found a way to keep my colon from growing until i grew up to it. I took 2 tablespoons f mineral oil every night til I was 12. Once in a while I would get backed up in my teen years and have to take something called black powder which was like a bomb going off in my colon.
Avatar f tn Some individuals with this condition typically complain of constipation and the problems that can be associated with it. You didn't mention what led you to have the test done, but if it's something like constipation you may want to ask your doc how to try to manage the condition to lessen the discomfort.
Avatar f tn First I suggest you see a Colon/rectal MD! and the best product to buy is Konsyl Original Natural Fiber Supplement Bulk Forming Laxative, Relives Constipation 100% natural psyllium fiber Benefits diabetes management No sugar or sugar substitutes Safe during pregnancy Gluten free Doctor recommended for over 45 years Heart healthy formula: You can buy it at any drug store.
Avatar n tn there could be loads of different reasons for the above and i am sure all treatable but i would think if u have not been a trip to your doc would be in order.
Avatar n tn The more laxatives and colon cleansers you use, the less work your colon has to do and becomes lazy. I would not do these, at least for a while. MIralax is an excellent product, is not a stimulant, and can be used as long as needed. Be careful with the fiber as too much causes constipation. It appears that the only thing that has changed is you not using the colon cleansers. So, I would give it some time for your bowel to start working on it's own without the colon cleansers.
Avatar f tn What are some of the complications from colon resection surgery? My colon was resected in 2/07, and had a temporary colostomy put in, they also removed 10" of jejunum in the small intestine. The colostomy was reversed in 4/07, with a total of 28 inches of decending colon removed between the two surgeries. My colon was slow to wake up after both surgeries. Ever since the takedown surgery I've had ongoing problems with constipation, gas, and bloating.
Avatar n tn So, we did an MRI, which revealed no structural problems in my colon (also confirmed by the colonoscopy) and I'm not getting ready to do a transit marker study, or something like that.
Avatar n tn Does these tests at least rule out advanced colon cancer? Would these tests have shown colon cancer or at least something to some extent to warrant further testing? 8. does the symptoms point to colon cancer? With the blood now gone. 9. I feel like there is something just inside my rectum, is that a sign of colon cancer or possibly a internal hemmorroids? 10. How common is colon cancer/rectal cancer in someone my age without the family history?
Avatar f tn He has a severe iron deficiency else well. He went for a colonoscopy where he has been diagnosed with a mega colon. The pediatric surgen (who only saw the x-rays) and ignored the colonoscopy report indicated that there is nothing wrong with my baby and only need 'pedicol'. He has been using this pedicol for 1 week. His tummy does go more often, but he has severe stomach cramps. Please advise. The biopsy report did indicate that there is nerve situated at the lower part of the colon.
1704915 tn?1357601254 I just found this from looking up tortuous colon. I have suffered with IBS problems for a long time as related to fibromyalgia. I was sent for a colonoscopy earlier this year and the results came back that I had a tortuous colon. I think I have finally got a handle on the constipation but I take multiple meds for it: senna S x2 at night, docusate calcium 3 capsules daily with meals and Lactulose 10 mls every other day.

Avatar n tn Although I underwent a total colectomy for a complaint other than constipation, I can tell you that constipation is the last experience after the surgery. If you have not already done so, read my experience of the aftermath of my operation on:- http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn symptoms of vuvla redundent colon are, really bad abdominal pain, Nausea, Constipation and frequency of pain ( the pain level may vary), also a distended belly.
Avatar n tn For the past few weeks i have been having lower abdominal pain, constipation, tenesmus, gas pain, loose stools, and acid reflux. My doctor sent me to have a blood test and the results have not come back, but im still concerned that it could be Colon Cancer. I'm afraid that it could be cancer, and i honestly hope that the blood test come back as positive for Inflammatory Bowel, rather than having cancer...please help?
Avatar f tn Irregular and infrequent or difficult evacuation of the bowels (waste). • Bloating problems: Inflammation in stomach or gas in the stomach • Bowel movement problem: Uncontrollable passage of feces; Loss of bowel control; Fecal incontinence; Incontinence – bowel. Thanks !!
Avatar m tn s disease, Chagas disease,colon inertia(nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally) and pelvic floor dysfunction(the muscles of the lower pelvis that surround the rectum (the pelvic floor muscles) do not work normally). Increase the fiber amount in your diet. The best natural sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.If still the symptoms persist then pls consult a gastroenterologist and discuss these possibilities. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn When it cures me, I may request your help in spreading the word to others on this site with colon problems. After all, who wouldn't want to share a cure? :) Thanks for all the advice and help, I'll let you know how the detox program works!
Avatar n tn I have found personal relief from constipation and redundant colon problems by taking magnesium bis-glycinate 800 mg daily, in 4 divided doses. This seems to be the right amount for me.
Avatar n tn In the following days when I was back at home I found myself having to deal with large amounts of mucus continually being discharged from my rectum. I am aware that with the large colon still intact the colon naturally produces a small amount of mucus, just as it did for the first 18 months after I was originally given the illeostomy. However this time the mucus levels were un-manageable, over ten times more in volume.
5153051 tn?1364441441 I am a 28 year old female who has never been pregnant, but who has had a long battle with constipation. After having some real problems with constipation in early February, I have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse including a moderately large rectocele and enterocele seen during defecography. The enterocele actually causes the colon/rectum to collapse, obstructing complete defecation.
Avatar f tn If you take too many fibers and probiotics but not enough fluids, then you can get constipation. Diverticular diseases of the colon, colonic cancer and IBS are the other causes which can cause sudden onset constipation. Hemorrhoids (piles) and anal fissures can also be the cause. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
