Customer Question
My symptoms are 43...

My symptoms are 43 yr old male. I have what seems to be a pressure in my colon. my tummy at times feels heavy and bloated. when I use my touch to feel inside that area, I can feel what seems to be a ball like feeling.?? I can push on it and its only when I stand up. if I bend down I don't really feel it. and if I squat all the way down I can feel from my butt bone to my colon this odd pressure?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Any other symptoms?

Maybe a few weeks.. my daughter bounced on my tummy as well and my colon feels like its unstable at times

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

Active and healthy

Hello, my name is***** and I would like to assist with your health concern:

Have you had any:

1. Prior abdominal surgeries?

2. This ball that you can push on-- exactly where is it located? Middle part of the abdomen? Near the belly button?

3. How are your bowel movements? Any constipation?

4. Do you do a lot of heavy lifting?

5. What is your weight? How heavy are you?

6. When was your last physical exam with your doctor?

I will wait for your answers.

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.
