I have a severely redundant colon that is also permantly distended by gas, why can stool slowly get through but the gas does not, it goes backwards?

Different processes: Passage of gas is more mechanical process than passage of stool that requires active peristalsis in your colon to pass BM. If you haven't done it, you should have a GI consult for an endoscopic exam for proper diagnosis and management. Use OTC meds for gas and diet modification (avoid beans, cauliflower) in the meantime. ...Read more

You are: "experiencing" a heightened "gatro-colic" reflex... when the stomach receives food a hormonal output affects the colon ...its called gastro (stomach) colic (colon) reflex..it is normal but YOURS is EXAGGERATED ! This is seen in IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), however this is a diagnosis only made after some testing is done! BTW your symptoms once explained are VERY Treatable!

Wow...lots of issues: I don't think we can really put all these things together into a common condition. There are clearly some gastrointestinal issues with the gas..not that concerned about white pieces after nuts or vomiting after linseed oil. Biggest cause of concentration and memory issues at your age is stress. Would check thyroid as under active gland could contribute to all. Work with your doctor. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I changed my diet. Eating small meals every 3 hrs comprising complex carbs and protein. Since then suffering frm excess flatulence and stool leakage.?

Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population. Dietary changes and/or antibiotics can bring this on, and correction involves encouraging the lactobacillus and acidophilus organisms to proliferate, suppressing the methane-producing bacteria like e. Coli, proteus, pseudomonas, etc. Try a probiotic twice daily like culturelle, and yogurt twice daily. ...Read more

Need evaluation: The optimal treatment will depend on the source of the problem, and there are many possible explanations for these symptoms, including gynecologic problems and even pregnancy. Many people with irregular bowel habits find that taking 2 tablespoons of soluble fiber (and lots of fluids) every day improves their digestive functions. If symptoms continue you should see a doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

2-3 days: hopefully you have stopped taking the supplement. It should be out of your system within 2-3 days, unless you are normally constipated. Drink lots of water, walk around, massage your belly clockwise, take warm baths. ...Read more

Probably not: If your symptoms were present before accutane - it's probably not the medicine. I would encourage you to see MD to rule out Chron's disease vs ulcerative colitis. Also if you have had anal sex may need specific STD testing. See MD soon - stool studies may be needed especially if having weight loss. http://www.medicinenet.com/colitis/article.htm ...Read more
