Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
I'm sorry to hear about this
Can you pass gas?
Can you see my replies?
Sorry - no.. My browser crashed, I had to restart.
No, when I try to, all that comes out is this mucousy light brown/orangey liquid.
I see, any blood in your stool?
Not that I can tell. I haven't had any solid stool since yesterday morning. I normally have 4 bowel movements a day.
And the pain is still bad?
Yes. I've taken acetaminophen and ibuprofen to help dull it a bit. But I feel like I'm pregnant. I've never had this before.
You are likely constipated and you may have hard feces causing an obstruction in your large intestine
If it get worse you will have to go to the ER for a CT scan
I see. That's what it feels like. What can I do about it?
You can only wait, anything you try may make it worse, stool softeners could help but you already have liquid stool, so I would recommend waiting for a few hours, and if it gets worse you need to return to the ER
Okay. I'm hungry because I haven't eaten much today. Is it still okay to eat?
If you cannot pass gas then I would not advise it because you may make it worse (the bloating)
If you can pass gas then you may be fine to eat
Okay. Thank you for your help. If it doesn't move by morning, I'll go back to the ER.
You're very welcome
