Could A Bowel Obstruction Cause Back Pain And Hurt To Walk
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
Constipated for 3 wks. Took MiraLax & Colace 3 days, didn't help. I've had small, hard BMs but not much. Took mag citrate (300mL) & had diarrhea after. No formed stools. Bloating, abd. & low back pain, borbor. Could this be a partial bowel obstruction?
I have been having lower stomach and severe back pain. I was hospitalized for a bowel obstruction. Now I've been diagnosed with two hernias. Are the problems related?
Had a ctscan withcontrast showed nodiverticulis but showed colon collapse why did it not show bowel obstruction what else could cause colon collapse?
Colon: A collapsed colon simply means that there is no stool inside that part of the colon when the scan was done.

Yes.: A hernia is said to be incarcerated when a structure within the abdominal cavity gets "stuck" within the hernia. If this happens to be a loop of intestine, this can cause an obstruction and lead to the blood supply of the intestine being cut-off; we call this a strangulated hernia. If one has a large, tender lump in the groin that cannot be pushed back in, this requires emergency md attention.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Small bowel obstruction is typically the result of a blockage of one's small bowel and presents with symptoms of crampy abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. This is typically caused by adhesions or scar tissue as a result of previous surgery. It is typically treated conservatively with bowel rest (nothing by mouth) and IV fluids. Surgery may be necessary at times.
Might an h2 blocker like Pepcid (famotidine) to cause a bowel obstruction or even a partial bowel obstruction?
Think of adhesions: As bands of fibrous scars. If one happens to form in a location that involves a bowel loop, the loop can be deformed or compressed to the point where the lumen is compromised enough to be obstructed.
IT'S A RISK FACTOR: Repeated abdominal surgeries might increase the likelihood of developing abdominal adhesions. In simple terms like cobwebs. These can sometimes be the cause of partial or complete bowel obstructions. The mechanism is different because the source is external as compared to a mass growing inside the bowel. Talk to your doctor about your concern.
Not likely: Bowel obstruction from food or other ingested bezoar is rare. A raisin stem is very small and therefore able to navigate most GI systems. If you have abdominal symptoms, okay to start a bowel regimen to manage constipation. Constipation is much more likely to negatively impact your day to day GI tract. Be well.
Bowel sounds: Are normally audible. In bowel obstruction, they become hyperactive and high pitched at first, then absent when it becomes more advanced.
Anything that creates a blockage of the intestinal tract. You may think of the intestinal tract (stomach, small bowel, large bowel) as somewhat akin to a garden hose. If you kink the garden hose, or twist it, or block it inside, you have created an "obstruction". Most obstructions are a results of previous surgery and most of these ...Read more
