Pain and Difficulty going

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have had great difficulty in passing stool for about the past 2 or 3 months, I have mentioned this to doctors and all I have had back in prescribed stool softeners and soluble laxatives to help me go. But I am still only managing to go once every 10 days at best. In addition it is very sore when I do manage to pass stool and occasionally bloody, though not in the stool itself. I also have a very sore coccyx, or a pain in that area but nothing shows on the x-ray. Any ideas where to go next or what to do?

    Yes go see a PROCOLOGIST! They specialize in that area. It is NOT normal AT ALL to not have a bowel movement in 10 days!! and it's dangerous! You can have a blockage that can kill you. You really need to scehdule an appointment with a proctologist as soon as you can!!! Also while you wait for your appointment drink TONS of water and prune juice,. I guarantee if you drink a about 2-3 cups of prune juice you will be going like mad ahahaah...Good luck and please see a proctologist when you can

    You can not only get a blockage in your stomach by not going for ten days but you can also get hemerhoids. If you get a blockage you might need surgery at best and worst it could kill you so get to the proctologist straight away!!

    Bone issues like pain in coccyx are linked either to thyroid malfunctioning or auto immune diseases. You should check your thyroid and D3 levels or just start with Vitamin D3 supplements right away. Take one magnesium oxide supplement 250 mg daily before going to bed to get things moving.  Two flaxseed oil (gel) pills one after breakfast and the other after lunch help in lubricating your food  inside your tummy and also acts as a stimulant to go with ease.  Eliminate milk/cheese/ice cream/chocolate or any other dairy products that have too much calcium because calcium contracts muscles.  Look for alternatives like grapes or mushrooms that help in providing calcium or vitamin D.   Avoid fruits and vegetables that have too much iron as it makes the stool dry.  You should be on a diet that is easily digestible. Eat white rice (easily digestible), chicken instead of red meat.  Eat eggs, avocado, fish, kiwi, oranges. soaked beans like black eyed peas, garbanzo beans etc (note : only pre soaked beans are easily digestible), fajitas or tacos without cheese, sushi, pho soup.  Drink smoothies instead of ice cream.  There! all these are easily digestible and healthier guilt free versions.  Drink warm water in between your meals.  Eliminate gluten, sugar, caffeine, alcohol for a few days until you get back to normal.

      Forgot to mention one most important point...stomach exercise.  Your stomach muscles are weak and the only way to stregthen them is by doing stomach exercises such as bending or stretching.  You can do these exercises lying down as you do not want to put pressure on your anus.  Walking also is great but walking doesn't target stomach muscles.  These exercises prevent blockage and help the content move or get pushed.  You should eat a lot too :-).  Yes, eat all the healthy stuff that I said up there so that your colon is full and keeps pushing out the waste. The stuff needs to keep moving else it gets dehydrated and hard.  Check your tongue, if there is a built up on the tongue it means your digestive tract is unhealthy.  Your tongue should be pink and clean.  It is a good indicator of colon problems.
