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.

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.

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
