Brief Answer: Considerations. Detailed Answer: Hello and thank you for sending the question. This is a very good question. I will give you some considerations. The first thing we must consider in a young female is pregnancy. I'm sure you have considered that and I would recommend a pregnancy test if you are at all suspicious that this could be a possibility. another possible cause would be a bladder infection. This can sometimes cause pain in that area and occasional discomfort which is not necessarily associated with food or fluid intake. constipation can sometimes cause the symptom as well I would recommend that you consider these thoughts and let me know if something seems consistent and we can discuss this further and talk about what you might try or what you might talk about with your primary care doctor to feel better. Sincerely, Dr. Galamaga

Hello -

Wife is 65 years old and suffers from extreme constipation. She receives excellent medical care, UNC & Duke graduates, but neither her primary physician or her plethora of specialists seem to be able to offer practical suggestions.

Situation resulted from surgery in 2001 four “flat back” syndrome secondary to scoliosis. Nerve damage occurred during surgery with many negative outcomes, such as, chronic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, some paralysis in right leg.

She manages well, in spite of, these difficulties and prior to surgery was high functioning in very responsible position.

She takes heavy narcotics for pain which, of course, contributes to her problem. Also, she takes Miralax and copious fluids.

Bowel movements are unpredictable and can take hours to complete. This part of her disability severely constricts her quality of life.

Are there any suggestions, short of a colostomy, which might alleviate her symptoms of constipation, as well as, relieving the constipation itself.

I understand this is a complicated medical situation, but I am interested only in the bowel management issues.

Any suggestions? Any recommendations? Any solutions?

Thanks very much for your time and attention to this problem.
