I took my dog to the vet and he was positive for hookworms. My bowel movements have been strange and they seem to have white-ish sesame seed like things all in it. If I had hookworms, wouldn't I find worms in stool?

No...: Passage of oil droplets in the stools is abnormal and indicates either maldigestion or malabsorption of fat. Maldigestion of fats more often might occur with gallbladder disease or if you've had your gallbladder removed. Malabsorption signals a pancreatic or intestinal disease. See your doctor for consultation. Good luck! ...Read more

I have horrible smelling bowel movements and gas after gastroenteritis. Stool looks a little loose. It has been about 8 days. Muscle weakness too.??

Gastroenteritis: I don't think that the horribly smelling stool is of concern but the loose stools of viral gastroenteritis usually resolve after a week although it can be followed by an irritable bowel syndrome. If significant diarrhea is prolonged the stool should be cultured to check for pathogens that need treatment. In the meantime avoid harsh roughage, take kaopectate (kaolin and pectin) as needed. ...Read more

Common problem: Intestinal parasites, including worms, are surprisingly common. You can ask your Dr. To order stool tests for parasites though often labs don't find them even when there. Papaya seeds are an old folk remedy that has been proven effective for intestinal worms. You can try 2 tbsp of ground papaya seeds on the next 2 full moons and next new moon; that usually works.

Whenever my bowel movements are moving thru my intestines, I can feel it and its excriciateingly painful like labor contractions painful. Why?

Feels food in guts: You are probably describing visceral hyperalgesia--the heightened sense of gut distension & motility that many patients with irritable bowel syndrome experience, particularly at times of "mass movement." however, the same feeling may occur in response to partial obstruction (whether mechanical or functional). An abdominal obstruction series may reassure you, or may lead to additional studies. ...Read more

BetterThanAPentagon: I've never imagined swallowing a triangle but I must tell you, it sounds very uncomfortable. First, consider what you eat. Could you be sensitive to some kinds of food? Like dairy, beans, or broccoli? If that's not the case and you haven't traveled outside the country lately, you should see a doctor for an evaluation. In the meantime try small doses of Imodium (loperamide).It's for diarrhea but can help with cramps ...Read more

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 more

Whey and increased bowel movements. Am taking one scope daily. Is that enough for increasing bowl movement. What shall I do. Please any solutions?

Depends: On why you're taking whey. If your goal is to have more bowel movements, then changing to a supplement that has a lot of fiber or at least a whey product that is higher in fiber than the one you're using would be a better idea. But be careful. A lot of whey products can contain a full days worth of calories in one single serving. A non-whey fiber supplement may be a better way to go. ...Read more
