I have a descending bowel. It (the bowel) comes out several inches. I can push it back in, but it will come out again, sometimes right away and sometimes at the next bowel movement. I don't know what it it or what to do about it.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have mentioned it to my doctor, and he said there is surgery for it, but it is a hard, hard surgery. I take a whole lot of medicines. I am 86 years old.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I had cancer several years ago, but it was in my right mandible; I had radiation for quite a whilel. I had an episode in Januray of 2015 when my blood pressure

JA: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?
