Two: Two causes are responsible for 90% of the symptoms describe. A urinary tract infection is the most common. The second most common is constipation. The built up stool will push on the outside of the bladder giving the patient the feeling that she has to urinate. As you can imagine, the only way to sort this out is to see your pediatrician. ...Read more

Call your surgeon: This could all be related to the development of post-operative ileum (where the bowels slow down) and can be worsened with the use of narcotic pain medications. However, since you have several other medical problems, it would be safe for you to contact your surgeon's office to be seen. Meanwhile, drink fluids, walk as much as you can and if you vomit, have fever, or have wound drainage, go to er. ...Read more

Bleeding from rectum, negative colonoscopy, gastrointestinal Dr is puzzled....any ideas? Nearly every time I got to the bathroom says even hemroids ok

Why?: Why the puzzle I can guarantee you you have a fissure that is causing the bleeding. First negative colonoscopy is a good news you eliminate the cancer or any other causes of GI bleeding. Try to keep your bowls soft and not to worry about it the bleeding will keep happening on and off. Nothing you can do about it you can always ask for a Colo- Rectal surgeon opinion ...Read more

I drank lactulose 10mg for a SIBO breath test. I went to the bathroom 12 times. I am cramping bad, bloated, very ill. Does this indicate I have SIBO?

Expected side effect: Lactulose acts as an osmotic laxative- it causes bowel movements as well as gas and bloating for just about anyone that takes it. Your "reaction" to the lactulose does not by itself indicate small intestine bacterial overgrowth. ...Read more

Some ideas: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health.
Hormonal changes both expected (still some puberty changes occurring) and unexpected (thyroid, pregnancy, low grade inflammation like from a UTI, etc.) can be present to cause symptoms.
BUT, most common (1 in 5 women!) is. Well....

Coccydynia: Tailbone pain can occur with or without injury. Only real concern is to exclude a sacral tumor (extremely rare). If bowel/bladder habits normal, probably ok. Treatment included nsaid's, and a sitting pillow. Not a doughnut, but a foam wedge with triangle cutout. This keeps you sitting leaning forward without pressure on the coccyx. If persistent, removal is rarely needed but successful. ...Read more

Frequent Urinarion: Does urination only partially relieve the bloating? If so, it may suggest that you might have a "blind pouch" in the bladder of something else that is interfering with complete expulsion. A low grade bladder jnfection may also cause these symptoms. It is best to consult a urologist. ...Read more

Maybe IBS, but...: The GI tract has a very limited # of symptoms to signal its distress--nausea/vomiting, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, pain, fullness, bleeding, etc. As you know, many of these characterize ibs, but are also seen with inflammatory, infectious, ischemic, malabsorptive, and functional disorders. Maybe more lab work, imaging, biopsies, stool studies are appropriate in excluding non-ibs pathology. ...Read more
