Re: Worried I may have a Bowel Disease?? Please Help
It will be hard to for you to be diagnosed since they can't look inside your colon until you are completely cleaned out. Fecal impaction can be the result of other conditions but the contrast test you had did not show any obstructions or strictures, which is good. I think you should see a gastroenterologist because your GP might not be familiar with all the specific digestive issues that are related to fecal impaction. Take it slow, one thing at a time...you are going to feel miserable until you are somewhat regular again. This kind of constipation could be a sign of IBS if more serious conditions like a stricture can be ruled out. Keep going to your doctor, find a GI, and let us know how things are going.
