What is the best method to address a calcified fibroid tumor that is causing frequent urination and bowel movement issues?

What is the best method to address a calcified fibroid tumor that is causing frequent urination and bowel movement issues?

Hysterectomy: I'm going to assume this is a common calcified leiomyoma / fibroid of the uterus and that it's falling forward onto the bladder causing urinary urgency and pushing backward onto the bowel and causing constipation. These calcified tumors are unlikely to regress at menopause and elective hysterectomy might be a reasonable option if your physician is good with it. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

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

Complex ovarian cyst 5.6 cm. 2 ER visits in 1 week. Current severe pain, frequent urination, no bowel movement 2 days, feel bloated/distended. ER?

Severe pain--> ED: Have you called your gynecologist? Frequently, the ER will recommend a provider if you do not have one. If you are in severe pain, you should consider returning to the ED for further evaluation. Some ovarian cysts will resolve on their own. Others will require surgical evaluation. Only a physician who has reviewed the ultrasound and examined you can help formulate the best treatment plan. ...Read more

I had hemorrhoid banding on 9/21/15 and again on 10/21/15 and ever since then I've had frequent urination after bowel movements. Is this normal?

I had hemorrhoid banding on 9/21/15 and again on 10/21/15 and ever since then I've had frequent urination after bowel movements. Is this normal?

Sounds normal: While it's an unclear cause and effect issue, it doesn't sound dangerous at all. Also doesn't point towards any specific complication. No need to call the surgeon in this one, particularly if there's no pain, fevers, or problems related to urination other than timing. Hope this helps! ...Read more

2nd pregnancy, lots of pressure in vagina/rectum, more frequent urination, more frequent bowel movements (3+/day) occ. Contracts. & cramps. Labor soon?

Not necessarily: Without more information it's hard to answer the question. How many weeks are you? If you are past 34 weeks, these can be common symptoms that are not of great concern, and not necessarily indicative of imminent labor. In general, unless you are having pains that stop you from doing things occurring every 5 minutes or closer, these are likely braxton-hicks type contractions, not true labor. ...Read more

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

Is it normal to have upset stomach, bloating, headache, gas, frequent bowel movements and excessive urination, and hot flashes, before period?

We hope not: That does sound like more than annoying PMS. Even if an exam determines thatit is all PMS, it's a severe type and you can find help from an OBGYN. Have an exam and discover what's going on. That's too bad to just allow it to go on and on w/out putting up a fight. I hope it's an easy win. ...Read more

How are the bowel and urinary systems related? I often find that about 20 minutes after a bowel movement, I have a strong urge to urinate...Why?

Bowels/bladder: Sometimes the presence of stool in the rectum will place pressure on the urethra acting to "hold" the urine - once it is relieved you may have the urge to void. They are two separate symptoms but emptying one may prompt the other system to "tell the brain" its time to empty the other one. ...Read more
