Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.

sounds like you might be constipated if you are having a hard time going to the bathroom. if your stools are hard and you are having a hard time passing them, then this is constipation.

you might need to eat more fiber or more prunes or use over the counter stool softeners like colace or laxatives to help you soften your stools and move your bowels earsier every day.

the CT scan of your abdomen would have seen your colon. did it see that it was full of stool?

have you tried laxatives before or stool softeners? drinking more water and exercising and eating more fiber can help you move your bowels as well.

I been eating fiber everyday ,doctor said they didn't see any stool in there .but in the morning I went to restroom my stool is soft but then evening it's hard .and when I eat breakfast my stomach is pain.shoul I need colonoscopy ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
I don't think you need a colonoscopy yet.

your stomach could be painful in the morning because of excessive stomach acid and an empty stomach all night long. you might benefit from taking an acid blocker at night like a pepcid ac or zantac or nexium pill at night time to decrease stomach acid so your stomach is not so painful in the morning.

you might need to check for stomach ulcers if you have too much stomach acid in your stomach at night time.

have you ever used acid blocking medications before?

No ,but I have endosopy .but why in the morning I go restroom my stool is soft but then later on I can't go restroom and sometime I have bloating ,I'm just worry about colon cancer.thank you
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
colon cancer would not cause your symptoms.

bloating is from excessive gas and can come from your diet.

some people get bloating from drinking sodas, or eating too much fiber, or beans, or brocholi. some people get bloating when they drink milk, or eat too much eggs.

you might need to get more yogurt and probiotics to help you be more regular.

also eating more fiber in your diet like metamucil or natural fiber can help you have more regular bowel movements.

colon cancer would be very very rare at your age.
