Time to get checked: 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. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

I finished my colonoscopy prep several hours ago but I am now just passing water. The odd thing is it is almost neon green. Is this okay? Am I ready?

Colonoscopy prep: Colon preps are designed to remove solid matter, green appearance to the exiting liquid is from bile salts residues that have dissolved in the prep and are being washed out. Your doctor will be able to see everything. Incomplete preps are from retained solids - this can be rectified by using a full liquid diet for 3 or 4 days prior to the prep to minimize the chance of retained solid matter. ...Read more

Abdomen pain started after around three months I started to drink a huge amount of water around 4/5 l per day with frequent urine pass. Why is this?

Abdomen pain started after around three months I started to drink a huge amount of water around 4/5 l per day with frequent urine pass. Why is this?

Frequent urination: If you are drinking 4-5 liters of fluid a day, your kidneys are doing their job of excreting excess water. I suspect that your urine is quite light in color. If you drink, only two liters of fluids/day, your urine production should decrease. If not, see a doctor as your kidneys may be diseased or you have one that is causing this increased amount of urine. ...Read more
