Don't worry.: I have never seen a baby come out without some poop. Do not take an enema. It will not help. Trust me - when the time comes you will: a) not even notice, and b) not even care. Remember the goal: healthy baby, healthy mama - period. Your life is about to change and poop will, I guarantee, not matter nearly as much! Enjoy the rest of pregnancy and delivery -. ...Read more

I took Praziquantel for Clonorchiasis, but I have not seen Clonorchis sinensis in my stool. Should I be able to see it, or do they die in your liver?
Too small to see: The eggs of the liver fluke are released into the stool. The eggs are approximately 20 microns in length & 15 microns in width, so not really detectable by visual examination of the stool. The good news is that the 3-times-daily-for-3-days regimen of praziquantel is more than 90% successful at curing a clonorchiasis infection. If there is any doubt, could verify by rechecking stool at some point. ...Read more

Proven vs unproven: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Be careful and watch your wallet. ...Read more
I have had Diahrea in morning with normal stools in evening. Spot of blood on tissue--none on feces. Anxiety and fear, planning for death.
Way ahead of time!: Actually, it's not a bad idea for us all to plan for death if we mean living consciously w/ awareness and appreciation. But when you add anxiety and fear - you've made an error. You may have developed IBS (it's not too unusual w/ chronic anxiety). Consider both a psych eval, CBT therapy (great for anxiety) and a general physical exam w/ addt'l focus on GI tract.

Keep looking: With the symptoms that you have I would certainly keep looking. It sounds like pulmonary function tests are in order if you are having trouble breathing. I would recommend the neurology consult for your dizziness. Ask your doctor if gastroparesis has been ruled out and whether ger d has been ruled out. Sometimes stomach pain can be from a pinched nerve in the back. That's something also that the neurologist could evaluate. ...Read more
Stool retention: Voluntary stool retention, against a physiologic urge to defecate on a normal schedule, results in rectal and colonic distension, increases colonic mucus secretion, & makes stools harder and more dessicated which in turn may result in straining & a sense of incomplete evacuation when you do defecate. Any of these physiologic responses may give you a sluggish sensation. Try to avoid this behavior. ...Read more
9 year old son has been holding back poop it has been ten days, he does have phycological problems. What do I do?
Stool saver: Start him on five tsp of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or whatever amount it takes to produce a diarrhea. Set him on the toilet each day in order to retrain him. Once you see he is making progress you can slowly cutback on the amount of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) you are giving him. It is a long and tedious process so don't become frustrated. There may be regressions. ...Read more
