Lifted weights raked leaves 2 hours used leaf blower too. Blood vessel burst in right shoulder/bruised Prone to these in hands Cause for concern?

Recurrent Bruises: Trauma to superficial blood vessels can result in rupture and pooling of blood below skin surfaces--bruise. Can be normal due to excessive trauma; but this can also be a heralding sign of other serious conditions. Connective tissue disorders, autoimmune disorders, adrenal gland disorders are just a few conditions that may result in friable vessels. Consider review with your primary physician. ...Read more

Can I do an emma after my hysterectomery. My vowels are not moving...?

You mean enima?: Assuming you mean an enima and your bowels, the answer is yes. Having a hysterectiomy will not affect your ability to give yourself an enima. You may also try increasing the fiber and fluids in your diet, and possibly using a stool softener. If constipation persists, then see your doctor, good luck pugsley. ...Read more

Iud been in for 18months. Bleeding for 6weeks now. I pass clots so much pain. Can't bare it. What is wrong with me, emma.

Iud been in for 18months. Bleeding for 6weeks now. I pass clots so much pain. Can't bare it. What is wrong with me, emma.

Could have moved: It's rare for an iud to migrate, but it's possible. It's also unlikely for the iud to cause bleeding after having 18 months to settle in. Take a pregnancy test to be safe, and then call your gyn for an evaluation. Infections, hormone imbalances, polyps, endometriosis and fibroids are all causes of abnormal bleeding. You would need an evaluation to determine the cause for you. ...Read more

Constipation so bad I have bowel obstructions constantly and I've had a soap sud enema. Could there be a tumor in my bowel way?

Fred 61: You should absolutely be evaluated by your physician or a gastroenterologist with either colonoscopy or at the least flexible sigmoidoscopy if you haven't had either in the last 2-3 years. Obstructive symptoms like constipation can definitely be a warning sign that needs evaluation. Thankfully, most of the time, a tumor is not the cause but it must be ruled out ...Read more

I had an enema ystrday due to consitipation and 5 minutes later I had a bm. When should my normal bowel movement occur? 24hrs later?

Difficult to say: Unless your constipation was mostly related to a fecal(poop) impaction which your enema may have relieved, it may not readily normalize bowel wise until the underlying cause of your constipation is addressed. Unfortunately I can't readily determine the cause without more history. I would encourage you to stay hydrated, keep up your fiber intake, remain active. Priobiotics may be an option. ...Read more

I struggle with having bowel movements. I usually have to do an enema weekly to get relief. What could cause that& ways 2 help get normal bm?

Been evaluated yet?: Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days. Patients feel they are "constipated" when passing hard or small volume stool, or they feel full ; bloated. Had an x-ray to show you're not blocked? Do we know if your gut is sluggish or your rectum works correctly--these can be tested for. Don't get frustrated, but see a GI specialist for the correct treatment. ...Read more

I have not produced a bowel movement in 39 days. Xrays and cts came back showing impaction but nothing serious. I've tried, meds, drinks, enemas etc.

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): I recommend drinking lots of water and using miralax, (polyethylene glycol) this type of fiber works with your body and doesn't necessarily forces you to use the bathroom but lets you decide when you want to go. Each person has different reactions to fiber and some can cause bloating to some while others to have the same symptoms, so it is important to try a few to see which one works best for you. ...Read more

Yes: Either or colonoscopy is the best tool accuracy more than 95% barium enema use to be the tool but the accuracy and false positive and negative are not enough to depend on

What's the difference between a xray of the large bowel and a Fluroscopic Single Contrast Enema test?

What's the difference between a xray of the large bowel and a Fluroscopic Single Contrast Enema test?

Not much: Fluoroscopy is used to image the large bowel during the performance of barium enema. Single contrast enmea uses barium without the addition of air which is called double contrast enema. Fluoroscopy involves the use of xrays. Images are taken of the large bowel during fluoroscopy for documentation of any pathology and normal anatomy. ...Read more

Bloody mucus: Bloody mucus may be seen in proctitis, irritable bowel syndrome(mucus colitis) or inflammatory bowel disease. Apparently you have constipation.
