Colostomy but leaking stool from anus
c4 level sci, 21 years post injury. Colostomy about 18 years. Leaking stool from rectum last 4 or 5 days..?
Depends: I do not know what surgery you had, if it is an end or loop colostomy. The residual rectum will occasionally have a thick mucous dischage that could look like bowel contents, and if you have a loop colostomy the rectal discharge could be more. May need to see a doctor for an examination. ...Read more
Wanting to know why my grandson who lives us has fowl smelling pale bowel motions and passing wind non stop, he is 5yrs old?
Multiple causes: If these symptoms are chronic he could have a food allergy or sensitivity, most commonly these are to dairy products or glutens. Or if this is new he might have a bacterial, viral, or parasitic gut infection. Does he have any pain, or fever? He should see a doctor, have some stool and possibly blood tests, and possibly food sensitivity testing if those are negative. ...Read more
I have been pasting alot of wind but no bowel motions Had keyhole surgry 6 days ago Is this a concern? Plus i have a constant headache?
Laparoscopy: Passing gas after laparoscopy is normal and a delay in bowel movement is also possible. I would use milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) to have a BM if you havent had one in 6 days and also put a call into your surgeon. The headache probably is unrelated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Treat the cause: Constipation can be caused from poor dietary habits, an undiagnosed or poorly treated thyroid problem, side effect from prescription meds (e.g. Pain killers, calcium channel blockers), and/or from food allergy/sensitivity (e.g. Wheat/gluten), to name a few! you can try taking fiber and drinking more fluids, but treating underlying cause of problem is better, such as addressing the above mentioned. ...Read more
I am leaking from my anus when I have been on the toilet and past my bowel movement and wiped my self it keeps coming out .
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
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
