Greetings.

Can you please tell me the surgery details; which kind of the surgery was done? Which and how much bowel was removed? Was it done for ulcerative colitis or cancer? Is the stoma; ileostomy or colostomy?

Because of Colo/Rectal cancer, very near the exit, last August I had the complete rectum and anus removed and replaced by a Colostomy/Stoma. The Reaerend was then surgecilally filled and closed, by adding a stomach flap plastic surgerey.

Hello,

Milk of magnesia can take 4-6 hours or sometimes more to act. So you should wait for some time for it to act. If it does not work, you may consider liquid paraffin or castor oil for it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
