Unhappy Help and advise needed please

Hi everyone

I need some advice regarding problems with my bowels. I have booked into the doctor but they can be hit and miss sometimes. Here goes ...

1, For as long as I can remember I have had constipation. I can go for nearly a week to two weeks without going. When I do go my poos are tiny, like pebbles, strange colour (yellow, orange, brown) just a few examples.
2, When I do go properly i go about 4 times in about 10 minutes.
3, Dark stools and blood. This is not fresh blood like with piles.
4, mucus in the poo or on its own without poo.
5, Pain in my lower gut and cramps.
6, Undigested food and runny poo (not often tho).
7, bloated
8, Gas and rumble in the lower bowel region.
9, back ache
10,pain in the bum (seriously) when I sit down like i have bruised my bottom.
11, feeling sick
12, feeling shattered all the time.

Ime sure there is more but cant think at the moment.

Any ideas

Re: Help and advise needed please

Have you tried any over the counter medicine to help you go to the bathroom?
I use miralax, citracel, or metamucil, and I also use a stool softener. It really helps. It sounds like you do need to go to the doctor asap to check for bowel obstruction. Are you taking any medicine to make you constipated or have you always had a hard time going to the bathroom? Good luck, and if you have any further questions write me.

Re: Help and advise needed please

Its been a while since i have been on here but I have been doing the usual wait for results of tests etc. Well I have had a colonostomy and today been told the results are negative and that they want to now do a barium enema. If nothing comes of this then they will just treat the symptoms. What do you guys think of this. Does it sound like just IBS now and do you think checking the Small intestine is a waste of time. Ime not so sure. When they did the colonostomy they saw inflamation in the large bowel near the small intestine but how can this be if there is no inflamatory bowel problem.

Ime feeling a bit fed up.

Ah well
