Having severe upper abdominal pain before having a bowel movement. Before today I haven't gone in a week. Is this something severe?
Need more info...: It is definitely not normal to have severe pain at any time. If it is related to a bowel movement, I would think about intestinal blockage. Your doctor will want to know if you are at least passing gas, as this will indicate partial versus full blockage (which must be ruled out). Some people can go for several weeks without bowel movement, but pain is not normal. See your doctor for eval ASAP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hemroidectomy how long will I have pain with a bowel movement after a hemroidechtomy. Its been 3 weeks and bowl movements still hurt.
You : You can expect some pain after surgery. If your doctor gave you a prescription medicine for pain, take it as prescribed. Ask your doctor what over-the-counter medicines are safe for you. At this point in your post-operative course, you are probably on a regular foods - at this point you should be increasing the amount of fiber in your diet. You should take stool softeners that contain fiber to help make your bowel movements smoother and decrease the straining during defecation that increase the pain. You may apply numbing medicines before and after bowel movements to relieve pain, including local anesthetics that contain drugs as Lidocaine and can be obtained over-the-counter. Lidocaine-topical is a generic brand name that can help to resolve a variety of problems that cause irritation. The brand names for this are LidaMantle and xylocaine (lidocaine). Ice packs applied to the anal area may reduce swelling and pain. Frequent soaks in warm water (sitz baths) help relieve pain and muscle spasms. If this does not improve the pain, you should follow-up with the surgeon to check for problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
