YES: If it's a partial bowel obstruction you might have stool but not solid, most likely loose and watery. In complete obstruction no stool or flatus (gas).

A 33-year-old member asked:

If you have bowel obstruction can you still poop liquid everyday?

No: A bowel obstruction indicates a blockage and no gas or stool passes. Accompanied by bloating, abdominal distension, vomiting green bitter liquid and abdominal pain. A partial or intermittent bowel obstruction may allow some gas and/liquid stool to pass. The other symptoms should still be there as well.

How is the cause of abdominal pain determined without xray?

Many tools: Identifying the cause of abdominal pain is like solving a mystery, compiling clues based on a medical history, physical examination, lab results, x-rays, endoscopy, and response to rx. In cases where we cannot use x-rays, ultrasound can be helpful but will not replace a ct scan, when necessary.

Doctor can evaluate: Extreme fatigue by itself is not normal and needs an evaluation. A primary care doctor can look for causes such as anemia, cancer, infections, hormonal imbalances, etc... Significant anemia (not enough blood) or thyroid hormone problems are two of the many possible causes. One can write down a list of symptoms, with a brief description of each, to take to the doctor.

Probably not: Cirrhosis is not usually associated with hair loss.Any time there is a rapid reduction in weight or any kind of illness then we can see hair loss increase for several months. This type of hair loss comes back so not to worry. Good luck on your weight loss.
