Avatar m tn I am 45 year old male with constipation and mild right side abdominal pain, i also have experieinced pretty significant lower right side back pain but recently have moved so i do not know if the back pain and constipation are related. I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago after a postive FOB test and only one small polyp was found that was benign. My appetite is good and other than the change in boewl habits during the last few weeks i have no other symptoms that could be considered colon cancer like.
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.
Avatar m tn I'm having pain down the right side of my body in what seems like the whole of the ascending colon. It's hard to explain, there's also a pulse like pain that starts around my hip bone or the end of the ascending colon that travels up the ascending colon. I'm very uncomfortable after a meal and I can feel a little relief after I been to the toilet.
Avatar m tn I also suffer from low back pain caused by lumbar interverbral degenerative disc disease with lumbar radiculopathy. These conditions also cause pain in my hips that presents itself as a burning sensation along with shooting pain down my right leg. My pain comes from dislocated or bulging discs and a ruptured disc. These herniated discs apply pressure on nerve roots responsible for sending pain signals to the brain from the hips and legs.
Avatar n tn I had a pain to my right side under the ribs over two years. I did all tests, US, x-rays,gold bladder, etc. to find why I have a pain every day. I couldn't slep on my left side due to pain. I couldn't sit longer....Every day pain, pain, pain My pain come in after car accident where I was sitting as a passenger and the crush was from my R side.

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 Ballooning is done in many areas of the body - including the trachea and the esophagus when people have problems with those tubes. When the procedure is done in skilled hands, it's a relatively easy procedure. As long as you don't have a 'thinner' section than normal that you're dealing with - and you shouldn't based on what you're saying - the stretching should go well.
Avatar m tn Im 54 year old male with severe back pain, I've had fusion done on L2 thru L4 now my thoracic T6-T7disc herniation which partially effaces the right ventral thecal sac. T7-T8 disc herniation. T9-T10 herniation effaces the ventral thecal sac and subtly indents the right ventral surface of the cord. Prominant facet and ligamentum flavum hypertrophy at T10-T11 and T11-T12 partially efaces the posterolateral thecal sac bilaterally.
Avatar m tn I notice I get horrible pains in my bowel which quickly turns into golden diarrhea and leaves me on the toilet in pain for a good 15mins and back and forth to the toilet for several hours. These symptoms last for weeks and last time over 4 months. I notice I have this problem after taking antibiotics and also after drinking. My doctor did a stool sample test and it was an infection, he then tested me for HIV and a few other things but found nothing.
592912 tn?1307406761 I have had the same experience with abdominal pain and testing, with no answers. I've had doctor's suggest that it could be coming from my back, and others say that it is from my muscle spasms. Most recently, when I pointed out where the pain is to a neurologist a few months ago, she said "that is a thoracic dermatome", meaning that the pain was wrapping around the path that a nerve from my thoracic spine follows.
Avatar n tn For some time, I have been having problems with leaking stool and pain in my right side. For the past couple of weeks I have been having episodes of feeling like gas is going to pass and then I have an explosive dark watery diarrhea. Afterwards, I will have lower back pain throughout the next 12-24 hours. Could this be Crohns, colitis or cancer?
1413243 tn?1281795471 My mother is suffering from abdominal pain and lower back pain accompanied by headaches. She became bloated (soft) and fat. She is 60 years old. What might be the causes? Is that a liver cancer? Or Pancreatic? Or colon??? Please help.
Avatar n tn s very simple ultra sound to find that out. Do you have nausea? Does this wake you up at night with back pain? All gallbladder symptoms. Do you get this after eating fats? I also had an umbilical hernia which caused problems such as sharp pain, digestive problems, sweating and shortness of breath--it was incarcerated (stuck in bad position in stomach muscle). A hernia surgeon can examine you for a hernia. My regular doctor missed it because he was not examining me correctly.
Avatar f tn I have been in extreme pain since February 17 and was diagnosed with a infection in my colon has never cleared up colonsopy should nothing, I am waiting on a scan for my pelvis/ abdomen area amd I'm still in pain it's on the left side were ur colon is and feels like something is about to burst inside me ,lately the pain is right through to my back ,has anyone else experiencedo anything similar?
Avatar m tn do you drink at all? Pancrease funtion/liver funtion blood tests ok? That's probably first thing to ask for is liver pancrease tests especially after a gallbladder removal to make sure the sphincter of oddi isn't causing problems. There's also sometimes people get some condition like that after surgery and gb removal. That's one idea... Sharp pains on upper left usually is stomach/pancrase/colon/small since you just had gb removal that's one idea..
Avatar f tn 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 n tn Ovarian cysts can cause bladder and bowel problems. In my case it was due to the size of the ovarian cyst and the pressure it was placing on other organs. In my daughter's case, the abdominal pain with the ovarian cyst was severe and caused nausea. By the time we discovered that an ovarian cyst was causing the pain, she had become constipated, which added to her irregularity and discomfort. Like MarieMichele, before my ovarian cyst was removed, I had to eat very small amounts.

Avatar f tn ( pain in epigastric area, pain in back, almost like a band around me but also my bowel feels like its doing a dance!!
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?
953325 tn?1246529343 I am only 19 with only one family member having had colon cancer, a distant one.
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.
