Question: Dear Doc, I am a 29 yrs old male, from the age of 16 yrs I had been practicing anal masturbation (inserting fingers and pens in my anus ) while masturbating my anus . In the last two years I had dared to insert some pretty big objects in my anus for example the round plastic end of a broom about 2 -3cms in dia . I felt a mild pain at that time though didnot have any bleeding or pain later on . But the problem is that , when I touch my anus with a finger it feels tight but I cant hold bowel pressure for more than 15 mins in the morning , if I try my pelvic area and stomach pains very much . I am very much worried that the insertion of large object has caused me incontinence . Please help and suggest a cure .

Brief Answer: Kindly view the details Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. The symptoms as mentioned in your post seems to have arisen due to insertion of large objects in the anus. Because of this, the anal sphincter has been stretched beyond its limit, resulting in incontinence & weakness of pelvic floor muscles. Management will involve: 1. Avoid insertion of objects in the anus 2. Atropine or its congeners like Hyoscine butylbromide to decrease gastric motility & constrict the sphincter. 3. Pelvic floor exercise & anal sphincter exercise for strengthening them. 4. Avoid smoking, alcohol & caffeinated drinks. There is no need to worry, you will be fine. Till then, maintain adequate hydration & proper nutrition status, exercise regularly and avoid stress. Wishing you a Good Health. Please let me know if I need to clarify further. Take care.

Brief Answer: Kindly view the details Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for your follow up query. Though there are few Anti cholinergic medications like Atropine & it's congeners as well as anti motility drug Loperamide, which can cause contraction of Anal spincter, but they need to be taken only under guidance of a Physician to avoid unwanted side effects. So, it will be better to practice Pelvic floor exercise & anal sphincter exercise for strengthening them. If you still find difficulty, then the damaged sphincter will have to be corrected surgically. Please stop feeling guilty about what has already happened. Make sure you avoid causing further damage to your body. There is no need to worry, you will be fine. Wishing you a Good Health. Take care.

Brief Answer: Sphincter has started regaining strength Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for your follow up query. According to the present status as mentioned in your post, it can be said that your sphincter has started regaining strength. This is an appreciative change & if there is no further trauma to the sphincter, then its strength will persist. As a result, you will have no problem of incontinence in future. Wishing you a Good Health. Take care.

My mom has lung cancer and she is 46 years old.
Here's her medical history:
Left breast cancer (03.11.09); T1c(1-2cm) N0 (0/4nodes) Grade II IDC ER+/PR=HER2 (2+on IHC). She completed 6 cycles of adjuvant FAC chemotherapy followed by 60Gy/30fr adjuvant RT completed 05.0810. She was also started on Tamoxifen.
She developed rectal bleeding in February 2010. Colonoscopy in July 2010 showed a stenosing tumour extending from 10-18cm from the anal verge. Biopsy revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma and pelvic MRI suggested this to be a T3N2 lesion. She was started on Oxaliplatin, capecitabine , bevacizumab. She was admitted in the hospital due to complains of weakness, hypotension and bloody diarrhoea. After it was treated she underwent surgery and palliative colostomy without resection of the colonic primary because it was very adherent to the intra abdominal structures and the surgeon did not want to risk major exploration and dissection in the presence of peritonitis secondary to a colonic perforation. After post operative recovery she had been suffering from peripheral neuropathy and still is. However, she has found relief with TENS.
PET/CT scan showed bilateral pleural based metastatic lesions and a possible left lower lung parenchymal deposit also. the primary lesion did not show increased FDG uptake, possibly secondary to having its blood supply cut off by the surgeon. She was also diagnosed with multiple filling defects in the right lung on CTPA and received therapeutic low molecular weight heparin. She has a clot in her lung vessel for which she gets clexane injections everyday. She had pleural effusions aspirated three times since the start of May 2011, from the right and left side. She got a Groshong central venous catheter and started her chemotherapy (Ondansetron, dexamethasone, atropine, irinotecan). She completed 1 cycle of her chemotherapy. The chemotherapy was discontinued because of a severe infection due to the Groshong line. She was started on antibiotics but the catheter was ultimately removed. After the infection settled and she recovered a little of her strength, she was misdiagnosed with passive pneumonia and was given Tazocin. It was just recently diagnosed as loculated pleural effusion. She also has a collapsed lower right lobe. She had the effusions aspirated 3 times, one time every day.The lobe has shown improvement. She is now complaining of chest pain, pressure on the chest and extreme shortness of breath. She has been on oxygen for about a week now and finds it difficult and tiring to breath without the oxygen mask. The lung saturation however is within acceptable parameters so i dont understand why she finds it difficult to breath without the oxygen. It has gotten so bad that she's unable to talk properly and can hardly complete a sentence without taking breaks. Yesterday night her chest pain got so bad they had to give her morphine which took quite a lot of time to wear off and she felt extremely lethargic. She is complaining of palpitations and says her heart skips beats(for which she was given Metoprolol Tartrate) but no significant improvement is noted. But the doctor says her heart is doing fine, so im really confused. She also feels a tingling sensation around her lips, head and limbs quite frequently and keeps getting these tiny jolts every now and then. What do you suggest we do about that? Overall, she feels extremely weak and is drowsy and lethargic most of the times and im getting really worried because she is showing no signs of improvement. Should she start getting her chemotherapy even though she's really weak? and can you please tell me what to do about her breathing and lethargy?

Hi, my husband has been having chronic diarrhea for over a month and doesn t know what is the cause. Watery,loose stools, sometimes very dark colored at least 4 times a day. Abdominal cramping only when he lies down, no dehydration, no fever, he actually FEELS fine. Prior to the diarrhea he was constipated off and on. A couple of days before the diarrhea he ate spicy sausage and potatoes at a seafood broil ( he s allergic to shellfish), then came the diarrhea. It hasn t stopped yet. Since then he s had oral surgery and also had an infected finger which had to be lanced and drained. So he s taken[Simvastatin 80mg(cholesterol), Clindamycin 300mg(antibiotic), Sulfameth/Trimethroprim 800/160mg(antibiotic), Dexamethasone 1mg(steroid), Diphenoxylate-Atropine tab(anti-diarrheal), omeprazole] since then. The diphenoxylate was prescribed 4 days ago by ER doctor who performed no test but said its not Chrons disease, its just stress. The medication only SOMETIMES stops the urge, but diarrhea still present along with the cramping when lying down. He had blood work taken in Feb (CBC) and all was fine. His work inconvenience s him from seeing his primary doctor. He is age 40, he does drink one or two beers a day between five to seven days a week, doesn t smoke. He stopped drinking when he was on the antibiotics and also he was taking both antibiotics at the same time. He started one right after the other, one was prescribed first for the oral surgery and the other for the infected finger. Do u have a general idea of what the problem may be? He s afraid it may be pancreatic cancer or ulcerative cancer....can you help?

My 16-yr-old son is an elite athlete. He suffered a traumatic hyphema and facial bone fractures, but recovered very well. Today is one-week after the injury, all is visibal is a very minor hyphema and 2 tears on the iris (with atropine dilated pupil). He asks when can he start to do his routine light exercise (baseball routines on the field) and roughly when can he start to do heavy weight training exercise again. Thank you in advance!
