Re: Could I have an underlying Bowel disease? Please help
Hi...it seems your digestive tract is shaped kind of wonky. Were there any areas that were mentioned to be twisted or bigger...etc?
Did they ask you about your food intake? Not that it can change the shape of your bowel....but it can help to move food through the system better.
I would say that fecal obstruction would be because of a functional problem in the bowel itself...or it could be that the natural peristalsis isn't functioning as it should....but is it in only the colon, or is it all through the digestive tract...etc?
Are they planning to do a transit time test on you?
I can understand how scared you must be, and having you stay in the hospital probably wouldn't change anything unless you had something obvious that couldn't (hopefully) be cleared out with laxatives.
But....in saying that....how are you today? Did you take the laxatives? are you feeling better or worse? If you're worse or not improving, you would have to go to the hospital again.
Is this a problem that's been going on for a long while or has it just started?
OK...enough questions.... ;-)
It's all a matter of perspective!
