Had bowel motion 2x this morning There grainy like blood bits & bloody fluid Bowel motion was bit painful Is this caused from my stomach ucler?

Not normal: Blood in the stool is not normal and needs to be explained. Causes include local irritation, anal fissure ( crack in the tissue) hemorrhoid, polyp, inflammation( colitis ) and cancer. You will need to see a health care provider to get a diagnosis. Unless bleeding rapidly, it's unlikely, a stomach ulcer would cause fresh blood in stool. ...Read more

Had gall bladder removal 3weeks ago but now have pain when having bowel motion Pain in lower back as well Why could this be?

Nonspecific : Not sure about the pain with bowel movement - no location mentioned. Back pain is very common after operations with general anesthesia due to lying flat on the operating table. Gallbladder removal typically is a short operation, but any preexisting back problem could be unmasked. Check with your surgeon and/or primary care provider for a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Numbness = hours: Marcaine lasts 6-8 hours. Some temporarily altered sensation + laxity of the tissues after this procedure would be expected. Often people are prescribed laxatives which will also increase the chance of some leaking/soiling. If it is happening more than you think it should then can decrease laxative dose +\- a physical examination/review is needed. However, it sounds like it may just settle down. ...Read more

Large globules of blood after loose bowel motion, is this a cause for concern? Also stomach pains, intermittent.

Large globules of blood after loose bowel motion, is this a cause for concern? Also stomach pains, intermittent.

Ischemic colitis?: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G rectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate, particularly for an older individual such as yourself with associated risk of: ischemic colitis, enteric infection (c.Difficile?), colon tumors. Don't wait until you're passing out--get to the hospital now please. ...Read more

My wife is pregnant in the second trimester get frequent lose bowel motion with colicky pain and fever what treatement is advisable thanks?

With fever you say?: "plugging up" diarrhea will not cure an infection, fix an inflammatory process, improve an ischemic gut, or correct a functional issue. Medical evaluation is recommended asap given her fever ; persistence of her symptoms. Any other associations (bleeding, weight loss, pain, vomiting), as well as your other medical co-morbidities? Don't put either baby or mom at risk--get her to the doctor today. ...Read more

There is of course high variability Amon individuals. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Inflammation: of the tissues in that area is probably the culprit. Topical pads containing witch hazel may provide you with some relief, such as those made by Tucks. If it does not help see a gastroenterologist or colo-rectal surgeon for an anoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. I hope this helps.
