Avatar n tn Recently after doing a cleanse I released some 12" thin tissuey strings; my doc says it looks like tapeworm. Stool sample tests show I am fine. I had to stop the cleanse since after a few weeks it is a little hard on the heart. My doc won't give me anything for it prescription wise since it doesn't show up in results. But, I still feel it in me, swelled up tonight even though colonic yesterday was so clear, but locked up about half way through (35 min), just past liver.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar f tn I have been told that regular colonic hydration is good for cleaning out the diverticula in a person with diverticulosis. How accurate is that? I have been wanting to go to a CCT, but was worried about it. Has anyone out there tried it? What was it like, and did it work?
Avatar f tn I am 50 years old and my surgeons which i have seen 2 and my family doctor say i have a classic case of colonic inertia. They want to do sugery in August. They will remove 80% of my colon. I have a slow moving digestive system and muscles that dobn't work in my colon. Any-one have anything similar. It is a life ultering treatment. I just want to feel normal again. Not bloat up every time I eat, and have tons of gas all the time.
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 n tn Hello first I apologize if my English is not good I just moved in USA. I have had problems with constipation since I can remember my self.

Avatar n tn Thanks again. How is she now? Did only colonic irrigation helped her and how many sessions she underwent?
Avatar n tn Not sure why you think you have colonic inertia because your doctor had a hard time performing a colonoscopy. Colonic inertia is extremely rare and indicates that the muscles of the colon do not function. It has nothing to do with the shape of the colon. You also do not develop this as a complication of surgery. I have colonic inertia and had my colon removed because of this 6 days ago. I am sitting in my hospital room as we speak.
Avatar n tn I am unsure if i have IBS but closest topic. I had a colonic irrigation last week to help reduce bloating, it wasnt serious bloating i just thought that i might acheive a flatter stomach. However immediately after the colonic irrigation and ever since i have experienced severe bloating, especially after a meal, i look pregnant and it feels hard with such pressure that it is very uncomfortable to move and i feel like i have to take deeper breaths.
Avatar m tn There were presence of multiple patchy areas of ulceration seen in the colonic mucosa from rectum to hepatic flexure. The ulcers size ranged from 3 to 7 mm with surrounding erythema. The ascending colon, caecum, IC valve and 10 cm of the terminal ileum were normal. Impression - Infective colitis. The doctor also did biopsy & sent the sample to histopathology department for further analysis. Will get the reports in 4-5 working days. Once I get it, will update.
Avatar n tn Polyp is usually a mushroom like mass growing from the colonic wall and bulging into the colon lumen. Histological examination will probably be made and then it will be said if polyps were cancerous or not. In diverticulosis small pouches bulge out from the colonic wall. They by themselves are not harmful but may cause constipation and may get inflammed (diverticulitis). So, it depends on your symptoms and on what exactly will be the result of investigation of polyps.
Avatar f tn Firstly, there are two types of worms that are possible one is guinea worm the other is a pin worm. The guinea worm is from travel to another country outside the US such as Africa or some other countries have it and then you drink contaminated water. If he has not traveled outside the country he probably doesn't have guinea worm. But guinea worm can go to any part of the body as you mentioned. It causes pain and inflammation and comes out of the legs and feet etc. It is a larger long worm.

Avatar f tn My cat has worms no matter what i try it lessens then comes back. Could it be her wet cat food?
Avatar n tn My daughter insists the dog has worms, but she is active, full of energy, and her stool is normal.Could she still have worms?
Avatar m tn How do I verify if I actually have worms? What type of worms might they be and how can I get rid of them. Also, as I mentioned I've had these symptoms for a while, what possible damage could these critters have caused and is there anything I should be worried about? Lastly, could they be affecting my immunity, as I've had some issues in the last year with staff infections.
Avatar n tn Ok so in the past month i have been volunteering with my local SPCA as a foster parent for puppies. The puppie i have now has been dewormed twice and i am still seeing white worms in her stool. Now about a week ago i was in the hospital because i had severe diarrhea and stomach cramping, The doctor wrote it off as a viral infections, BUT tonight i am almost positive that i had worms in my stool and my rectal area has become very itchy.
Avatar f tn They will treat the tapeworms, discuss other parasites AND really effective flea control - as that is the original problem! good luck.
850029 tn?1238857820 We looked and determined that they came from the dogs anus. We called the vet and were told they are worms and the vet doesn't need to see her but will put her on de-worming medicine. My concern is she might have had these for a few months. She loves to eat rabbit poop. How contagious is it for humans???? Also, I have two very small dogs and we've been visiting for a few days. How contagious is it for dogs????
