Customer Question
I am both constipated...

I am both constipated and very loose. The solid bowels are small, like rabbit droppings, and there are not many of them. When I discharge them, they are in a fluid -not watery - that is sometimes excrement colored at other times almost clear. I am in dialysis and have been treated for diabetes. I also have hemorrhoids.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, I haven't. I take omeprazole, furosemide, ropinorole, duloxotine, levothroidsine crestor, and one more I do not remember at the moment.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a bout with loose bowels (uncontrollably loose) 10 15 years ago which sent me to a gastroenterologist . I have had open heart surgery, I think that is everything.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My health is not good.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

How long have you had these symptoms?

Did they start all of the sudden or did they come on gradually?

How bad are the symptoms (mild, moderate, severe)?

When you saw the gastroenterologist, did they do a colonoscopy?

There can be many reasons for your bowel symptoms. Have you noticed any blood in your stool or dark or black stools?

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.
