Brief Answer: Fatty food induced Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX After reviewing your case we can come to conclusion that you are facing problems due to fatty meals or drinks.. Usually after ingestion of alcohol or drinks, there will be stimulation of liver and gall bladder to secrete enzymes. But in your case gall bladder is removed so food will take longer to get digested. So you may experience right sided pain. Even you might have right sided pain due to acute gastritis You consult your doctor once. Stop taking alcohol completly. Secondly liver enzyme extract syrups are available which can be taleo two times a day. Adding a proton pump inhibitor like pantaprazole with domperidone with help. Kindly consult your doctor to know if you have contraindications to these. Thanks,

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.
