Pa diagnosed very silent bowels. Treated with ducolax. So far lots of loose or liquid bm's. Does that mean it's working? Is very silent bowels bad?

Pa diagnosed very silent bowels. Treated with ducolax. So far lots of loose or liquid bm's. Does that mean it's working? Is very silent bowels bad?

Word games: I'm afraid our attempts to communicate with patients are often misunderstood. I would call"very quiet bowel sounds" an observation, not a diagnosis. Perhaps, with the ducolax, s/he assumed you were constipated. Bowel sounds can be active or quiet at different times in the same patient over a period of minutes or hours. By itself, it has no specific meaning. ...Read more

What does it mean when you pass blood from your bowels a lot of liquid and pain in adominal and lower back when going?

It's not good....: Passing blood in your bowel movements is never a good thing. You need to see a doctor right away, like yesterday. You could have a lot of things going on - ulcerative colitis, crohn's disease, diverticulosis, and colon cancer are all possibilities. It's possible this is something minor but don't mess around with blood in your stool! Get checked out now. ...Read more

Clear liquid diet 4d how long b4 bowels r cleaned out. Still passing stools small thin & mushy...Cld that be from old trapped stuff hx: diverticulitis?

Old food: 4 days of a clear liquid diet results in no residual non absorbable products in small intestine. When this liquid material is partially absorbed in the 12 or more feet of colon which contains suface colonocyte cells and bacterial, it comes out as you describe as small thin and mushy. Has nothing to do with a resolved diverticular problem. ...Read more

Unclear question!: You say "Reason I know." What is that reason? Generally, transit time through the gut is dependent on what you eat. The American diet, being high in low-fiber protein and fats, leads to a lower transit time than diets with more fiber, which explains, in part, our higher incidence of colon cancer. If there is another explanation, that you were told, please ask again, and tell us. ...Read more

Is it normal for clear or orange liquid to come out of the breast?

Depends: If you are 18 it is probably ok, especially in small amounts. But if it looks bloody or is profuse, have it checked out.
