Had colectomy and chemo 8 years ago. Still going 10-20 times daily to bathroom. Pouchitis sporadic problem. Any way to decrease number of stools?
Yes: Pouchitis? I assume your colostomy gets inflamed. Begin with diet and start a low fiber diet. If no better after 1 or 2 weeks try bulking agents ( fibercon or equivelent). It's counter intuitive so first try no fiber then trying more fiber to see which helps. If still a problem consider small amounts of Imodium (loperamide) regularly. Look into all your medicines and make sure diarrhea is not induced.See 1 more doctor answer

I have autoimmune pouchitis if i go back to a iealostomy will the pouchitis go away. I am afraid of taking imuran (azathioprine) or 6mp. ?
You may feel better: Returning an ileostomy will reduce many symptoms. Some symptoms may persist, depending on the cause of the pouchitis. Returning the ileostomy is recommended if you are not responding to the normal treatments and the symptoms are making your life difficult or impossible to live. Most patients tolerate Imuran (azathioprine) and 6mp well, so discuss fully with your physician.
My last dose of Flagyl and Cipro (ciprofloxacin) was taken this morning for pouchitis flareup. I now have a yeast infection, when can I take Diflucan 150mg?
Not on your own: Inflammation of pouch is a complex problem , is the result of various reasons , like obstruction , blind loop , poor motility , poor vascular supply , and due to partial obstruction etc , speak to your doctor , Diflucan (fluconazole) will be one of the consideration for your treatment.See 1 more doctor answer
GI-related pain?: Based on the briefly described note, the pain seems related to GI, but it is hard to tell it for sure without further detailed history on the specifics, relevance, and sequence of events of all symptoms + physical exam + testing as needed. However, it is not that hard to get the right care process done correctly by following instructions in http://www.formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html.

Chronic lacunar infarcts in right putamen-this is MRI report.what is its treatment?is it a major problem?age is 49 years of patient.
Chronic lacunar: infarct is a small old stroke. There is no treatment because it has already occurred. It won't get worse. Speak with your doctor. If you have risk factors or medical conditions predisposing to stroke, they may be treatable. The goal is to prevent future strokes.
Yes: You do not need 70% alcohol in your eyes. Wash hands instead.
Perhaps: Some people are just a little anxious, but it doesn't impair their ability to function. However, "jumpiness" or increased startle response could be a sign of posttraumatic stress disorder. It could also indicate that a person is very tense as a result of anxiety. I'd say if it a person finds the jumpiness is causing problems functioning then it would be worth consulting with a psychologist.
Depends: Many things can cause attention issues, can be sleep issue, hormone issue, social issue, learning issue, and much more. Check with your doctor for treatable causes, work with the teachers to put the pieces of the puzzle together and find the best way to address. Again, i recommend additudemag.Com for many resources.
