Greetings,

Do you have pain, distension of the abdomen? Is there any other significant past illness?

Regards.
Customer reply replied 4 years ago.
I don't have any pain and no distension of my abdomen. If I
Put pressure on my lower abdomen near my pelvis on the left
Side there is a dull pain only if I push it in . I still
Can't move my bowels
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
Thank you for the input.


Fever, sinus pressure can be associated. Sinus infection can be due to bacterial infection. Antibiotic can be required for it. Previous diarrhea can be due to bacterial or viral infection. After an episode of diarrhea, constipation can develop normally. Excess gas and gurgling sound can be due to enema. Along with enema stool have been passed. You may not have now enough stool in the intestine to pass. After an enema, some intestinal contraction can persist for a period. It can cause gurgling sound. Tenderness can be due to colitis. Bacterial infection can be possible. Tylenol can be taken now. If you have Gas-X, you can try. You can observe now. Consult doctor tomorrow. After examination if the doctor feels, urine, blood tests, throat swab, sinus, abdominal X-ray/ scan can be taken to know the cause. If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

Pour out diarrhea like a faucet turned on
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
Yes, after enema, it can happen. Take adequate fluid, electrolyte solution, so that you will not be dehydrated.

Is there anything I can eat that will help me mover bowels
Back to normal? I never had a problem before now
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
When did you have last bowel movement?
Customer reply replied 4 years ago.
Not since last week. when I strained a little would
Come out nothing normal in pieces sometimes brown
And sometimes yellow. It was strange looking.
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
Try to keep well hydrated by taking plenty of fluid, easily digested food like banana, rice, toast, etc. Yogurt or probiotic can be taken. Gas-X, Tylenol can reduce the pain and gas.

I still am constipated and I still have a cough

Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
Please try to take plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits & water. You can apply a dulcolax suppository. This can help with constipation.

Weight loss . The blood test showed I had a severe bacterial
Infection and my blood sugar was at 113 is that the high
side of normal.
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.

Was it a fasting blood sugar?
Customer reply replied 4 years ago.
I had yogurt in the morning with granola no I wasn't
fasting
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
It is mildly above normal fasting level. But when you were not in complete fast, then the level can be raised. In infection, stress it may go up. You can take a repeat test after you are cured of the infection.

I finally moved my bowels after push for 10 minutes
something came out and then when I wiped I saw
a redish color I think it was blood . I have no pain
And when I went to wipe again nothing. I'm really
scared I just had blood test and it showed I had
a bacterial infection and I'm taking biaxin . What can it
Be i had hemoroids years ago when I gave birth
But nothing since then. Help what's wrong
Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 years ago.
On straining blood can come. If it repeats or increases, you need to take an examination by doctor.

Solid but it wasn't liquid and it was brown.
