Bloating below naval for a year. Colonoscopy normal. Stool comes out without any problem. What tests do i need?

Belly bloating: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however PSBO (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed. Check with your doctor for examination & treatment options. ...Read more

Apply vaseline: You must have developed extra dry skin due to irritation from the procedure or some allergy. I would suggest applying vaseline or something similar at least twice a day for one week. If the symptoms are getting better, continue applying till the scaling and itch clears out. If not better then make an appointment to see your primary doctor. ...Read more

I have blood in stool. I've had 4 colonoscopy. Negative results. Had diverticulitis before. What could my problem be?

I have blood in stool. I've had 4 colonoscopy. Negative results. Had diverticulitis before. What could my problem be?

Maybe not colonic...: Evaluation is always appropriate for re-bleeding from the gut. Black stool often means bleeding 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 anal canal. Any accompanying symptoms? Do you take NSAID's, over-use alcohol, smoke tobacco, have other risks (AVM's for example)--lots to consider. ...Read more

Been having constipation problems for a bit. Had a tiny bit of red stuff on stool. Negative colonoscopy. Are colonscopys accurate can they miss cancer?

Hemorrhoids, fissure: The most likely cause of the "red stuff" would be hemorrhoids, but a fissure is possible as well. Colonoscopies can miss lesions, such as cancer, but the miss rate is very, very low. Check out the cause for the presumptive rectal bleeding with you gastroenterologist or colorectal surgeon. ...Read more

I have problems like ibs-d (6 on bristol stool chart). My blood tests, upper gi, and allergy tests all came back good. Do i need a colonoscopy?

IBS is not just: The bowel as cause. The intestine is under automatic brain control and the mechanism is sensitive to compromised brain/body chemistry. The commonest cause is poor diet, especially all the sweets, including sweeteners. ...Read more

Is it normle to have more poops after a colonoscopy...

Dr. D J Dr. J
2 doctors agreed:

Common complaint: Most people return to the same bowel habits after a procedure like this but a few notice more frequent stooling. This should return to your baseline with resumption of a regular diet and activity. If you had an antibiotic for the procedure you may have diarrhea associated with that. If this doesn't resolve in a couple of weeks or if you have fever, bleeding or nighttime diarrhea, see your dr. ...Read more

Why do I have black poop after colonoscopy?

Could be bleeding...: Black poop after colonoscopy may reflect blood in your stool, especially after having polyps removed during the procedure. Other causes could relate to your preparation used to clean out your colon, or entirely unrelated issues such as bismuth medication or even blood from your upper GI tract. This symptom should be reported to your surgeon promptly. ...Read more

When your colonoscopy is finished when will i poop?

When your colonoscopy is finished when will i poop?

Anytime you're ready: Before a colonoscopy is done, the colon is cleaned throughly by lots of laxatives. So you should not have any stool left in the colon (best case scenario). If there is stool left, it is much harder to do a good colonoscpy. Once the procedure is finished, you can poop any time you are ready. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy yesterday and was told I should poop in 2 days..It seems every time i eat or drink I have to poop now. Is this normal?

Yes: Yes, it can be normal because of the fluid you had to drink before the colonoscopy. This fluid cleans the inside of your colon by causing loose bowel movements. It sounds like you still have some in your colon. It should work its way out in a couple of days. ...Read more
