Colonoscopy: Have you seen a GI specialist. There may a be a cause other than classic constipation that is causing your symptoms. You may need to be scoped. If nothing is found, there are other studies that may show how your colon is functioning. A GI specialist can guide you thru this. Increasing the (bulk) fiber in your diet and newer products like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) can resolve most issues of constipation.

Drink a lot of water: Many times, hemorrhoids in pregnancy are made worse by not hydrating well and thus constipation sets in. Straining increases the risk of hemorrhoids. Increasing fiber intake also helps. You can use over-the-counter hemorrhoid remedies, which are safe to use during pregnancy.

Can you experience spotting with mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD even if you never have for the past 2 years?

Yes: Yes, it is possible to have spotting with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud even if you have not previously. While the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud causes thinning of the uterine lining, it is still possible to have occasional spotting. Like all birth control, if you have changes in stress, weight or health, you can have changes in your bleeding.

My surgeon has extensive experience in doing gastric bypass surgery but have never done a takedown operation on gastric bypass. What should I do?

Go to: Another surgeon. Many of today's surgeons are trained laparoscopically but are not so confident in open procedures. Older surgeons are more experienced in both, since they started with open procedures and then they adopted laparoscopic ones.
