Stool: Don't listen to what people say. Listen to a professional: a doctor, a pcp, a gastrointestinal doctor. We look at possible causes for constipation (medical conditions, medication side effect, etc). Different meds can be used. It could be frustrating. Let a doctor help you. ...Read more

I think i’ll die of embarrassment if I poop while having my baby. What can I do: take an enema at home?

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 have never had this problem b4 but I have a lil bit of mucus in my stool should I be conserd am I goin to die?

What to do if I have not been able to poo in 29 days! I'm scared, can I die from this?

Please see your dr.: Eat at least five servings of vegetables and four of fruit per day. Increase dietary fiber. Opt for whole grain when possible and avoid junk carbs. Aim for 64 ounces of water per day (more in hot environments or with exercise). Remain physically active. Some people become bound up with dairy products – if that happens to you watch dairy intake. ...Read more

Will you really die if you never had a bowel movement?

Will you really die if you never had a bowel movement?

Not likely: It would be almost impossible to stop from defecating. You can retain significant amounts of stool and will eat less as the colon fills. In theory you could fill the colon entirely and clog up your intestine and then you would die but it is hard to imagine such a scenario. ...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?

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. You've no threat to your life here. ...Read more

I feel like death every day from stomach problems (past two months.) blood & stool tests, h.Pylori/edg/endo/xray & two ekg's. Tests neg.

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

Why does holding in poop feel sluggish?

Why does holding in poop feel sluggish?

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
