Colon problems what to eat

Common Questions and Answers about Colon problems what to eat


600561 tn?1326845621 My research finds that some still say that and just as many say that there is no proof that these foods need to be avoided. Each person may need to find out what is acceptable to the irritable bowel and deal with it that way. Thank you for sending along information.
622595 tn?1221627691 However, there are many other complaints which can cause your symptoms apart from colon cancer and your husband is right to try and persuade you to seek medical help. 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 m tn A single polyp can become large enough to make it difficult for you to have a bowel movement. While waiting to see him, eat Activia Yogurt, and you may return to normal before seeing him. But you should also ask him how often they want you to have a colonoscopy, normally it's every 3-5 years after they find a polyp. Take care.
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 This is not easy but it can be done I am allergic to both items and I have figured out what I can eat and never go hungry. If you are indeed lactose or gluten intollerant it should take about a week for you to find out. Good luck and keep me posted.....I've been down this road.
Avatar n tn My recommendation is to ask for a referral right away to a gynecologist and find out what other tests should be completed to further evaluate and treat the cyst.
Avatar f tn Its been between 5 and 10 pounds in a week, but I think that is from the lack of food I usually eat in the day now. I still try to eat, like granola bars or an apple, just something. I also try to eat a fully dinner every night, my symptoms don't seem to be as bad at night.
Avatar f tn I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy today and they came back normal. I have no desire to eat only 1 meal per day and I have been vomitting up the food when I eat it. The pain does not go away. It is a dull pain. I have had my gallbladder out for years. The docto said he was going to run another test.
Avatar m tn The most important thing may not be what you eat but what you drink. It is common that folks will eat all the right things such as high fiber, low fat diets but fall short of the mark when they fail to drink enough fluid and live in a chronically dehydrated state. They colon is a key player in maintaining hydration and will suck the fluid out of stool passing by leading to constipation.
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 f tn How long does it take for the colon to return to normal, if ever? Do the cut nerves ever get back to normal? Is it likely I'll continue to have problems for the rest of my life? I've started taking a daily dose of MiraLax, 1/2 cup prune juice and 1 1/2 tsp. of magnesium oxide powder (2200 mg.) just to have a BM. Is the MiraLax safe for long term use? I eat a healthy high fiber diet, use 2-4 tbs. ground flaxseed but it doesn't seem to be enough.
Avatar m tn I have tried all kinds of diet changes and even tried to do elimination diet but it seems like no matter what I eat, the pain is the same regardless. Even when I was drinking bone broth to get ready for my colonoscopy, that hurt as well. Currently I am eating just chicken and rice and having a hard time with it. The only thing that brings me any sort of peace is if I just stop eating. But I am in dire straights, I am down nearly 80 pounds since this GI journey started last August.
Avatar n tn He is unable to eat or sleep while this is occurring. He says his stomach feels like it is going to burst and just when he thinks he cant stand it anymore he says he starts to "deflate" we are both at a loss for what this could be. could it be an allergic reaction or something of that nature?
Avatar f tn So for now, I’m just desperate for answers as to what this possibly could be. Does anyone have any ideas at all? Thank you in advance for any help at all. This has had me very worried.
Avatar f tn It took me 5 to 7 days of probiotics to train my digestive system to perform as mentioned.I eat about the daily requirement of fiber a day: 35 grams. Digested and undigested food that remains in your intestines, primarily, your large intestines for two weeks can be somewhat toxic to your intestinal lining. Companies that advertise colon washes do not inform you that your necessary electrolytes that regulates your heart rhythms can be washed away from chemical colon washes.
Avatar n tn t seem to find anyone who has had their colon removed or partial colon removed due to sluggish colon or severe constipation problems. If you have had this done please let me know how you feel about your decision. I am really getting nervous about my surgery that is coming up July 8. I am supposed to have my entire colon removed. The surgeon said that my left side of colon is sluggish. I asked if he could just remove the sluggish portion.
Avatar n tn Blood in the stools can also be present The consistency of feces really varies from day to day depending on what you took in. From what you have described alone, it is very hard to tell if you have a colon problem or not (especially colon cancer) since some of these diseases can really present with no symptoms at all. If you are really worried then it may be worthwile to have yourself examined by a specialist (gastroenterologist) to evaluate you properly. Regards and God bless.

Avatar n tn Welcome to the gastroenterology community! What type of intestine and bowel surgery did you have? By tube down your throat do you mean an endoscopy or an NG or NJ feeding tube?
Avatar m tn Hello! My girlfriend Emily has been having some problems that just worsened recently and thinks it might be her thyroid but isn't sure. For 9 months she has noticed a slight bump on her stomach area around the colon I think. She thought it was her Hernia...which she had when she was younger and had surgery. There was no pain. It may also be important to mention she's anemic.
Avatar n tn I feel like I need to go to the restroom every time I eat somthing and my colon feels loose like I need to poop, but if the bloating begins in my stomach I dont feel that feeling in my colon and vise versa. I'v had blood draws, CT scan, a upper GI, hydest scans and 2 altrasounds and nothing.
Avatar f tn Been there and done that, but it's no fun to eat anymore it was always my favourite pastime! My husband refuses to eat any of this "diet" food, wants to eat normally, and he can. But when I have to worry about 2 different meals, 3 to 6 times a day, I can't come up with much. The only thing we agree upon is oatmeal!!!! We both like it and it works well for our bowels. Thanks for all your help and info.
Avatar n tn Ah, one thing I remembered right off; you can try prozyme, its a dietary supplement that helps with digestion. Prozyme is a plant-derived enzyme supplement. It helps to digest protein, fat, sugar, starch, and fiber, as well as helping your cat break absorb a number of vitamins and minerals. You'll also find your cat will likely need to eat less and thus go to the bathroom less, which could be very helpful.
Avatar f tn I am a female in my 60's and back in November 2012 I had my Colon n Rectum removed. I 'd like to know what is the best thing to wear to go swimming and where to buy It.
