What causes abdominal pain and painful urination?

Could be Cystitis

Open-uri20130512-16840-1ch0qzs
Cystitis (urinary bladder inflammation/infection) tend to cause abdominal pain (pressure in lower pelvis) and painful urination (dysuria). It is most commonly caused by bacterial infection and then it is referred to as urinary tract infection. Diagnosis can be made by urinalysis and urine culture. Other causes include kidney stones, urethritis, sexually transmitted diseases and drugs/irritants.

What can cause this upper abdominal pain and a hole in the bladder with painful urination?

Not Sure of Your ??

Gastrointestinal_pain
Upper abdominal pain can be caused by many illnesses of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum (small intestine), liver, gallbladder, & pancreas. Only a doctor can investigate the cause and will ask what brings it on, makes it better/worse, how long it lasts, and any other associated symptoms. I don't know what "a hole in the bladder" means; but painful urination could =infection. Please get checked!

Can I have colonic irrigation if have mild abdominal pain. Will it make the procedure be painful?

Probably OK

Gastroenterologist
There is no evidence that colonic irrigation is of any health or medical use. That said, if you feel you must have this procedure, there is no reason why mild abdominal pain, in the absence of underlying disease like ulcerative colitis, should be an obstacle to having this done. If you are having a chronic symptom for which you feel irrigation is needed, first see your family doctor.

Dr. Erik Borncamp answered:

I have lower left abdominal pain for a month. Is it painful scar tissue from section or something else?

More info?

Open-uri20130607-546-1d34dko
Could be scar tissue. But diverticulitis commonly causes left lower abdominal pain, sometimes exacerbated by a bowel movement. You should see a doctor if it has lasted longer than a few days or if it is severe and limiting your daily activities.. There are other causes as well and you may require a CT scan or colonoscopy to help sort them out.
