I have had RLQ pain for 4 wks I had a x-ray today it showed stool in RLQ. Colonic Inertia? Should i worry. Why would stool there cause me pain? :(
Common things...: I often recommend a daily regimen of a fiber laxative such as Benefiber (R) taken twice daily with a cathartic such as Miralax (R) taken at bedtime on the days that the person hasn't had a bowel movement. This has to be started AFTER doing a bowel cleanse such as might be done prior to a colonoscopy. If constipation is a chronic issue, despite the above, then a colonoscopy might be appropriate. ...Read more
RLQ pain for 4wks.I had xray in ER it showed stool in RLQ. Colonic Inertia? Why would stool build there. dr. was not worried. She said just go to GI.
Normal: Its completely normal to see stool in the RLQ. It doesn't mean it is built up in that location, more likely passing through. Constipation may or may not be contributing to pain, but the role of the ER is to rule out potential emergent causes. Now you need to follow up with your regular doctor (or GI) to assess for less emergent causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Take one pill before your first meal daily. Additional medication and interventional options however may be necessary appropriate to Linzess response or cause of symptoms. ...Read more
Don't do it!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed this subject with a clear "no" answer to your question. There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste" or for weight loss. There are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk. Don't use colonics please unless prescribed. ...Read more
Pertaining to colon: However, many people use it as a noun and mean a colonic enema. There are a number of so called "health treatments" that in involve high colonic enemas, or so called "clean outs". Efficacy of these "high colonics" is scientifically unproven & suspect. Colonic enemas may be required for some subjects with severe constipation, neurogenic bowel dysfunction or as part of pre-operative bowel prep. ...Read more
