I asked about this a day ago but I have noticed two more symptoms
1) my abdominal pain has spread up my belly so that it is a bit above my navel as well
2) my stools are thinner - about the diameter of my thumb

my previous information was as follows

I have a very mild pain in my lower abdomen. I only notice it when I am still. I had an infection of my epididymitis which went away with antibiotics. I think at the same time I had this abdominal pain which I thought went away and has now come back.

I have also been diagnosed with low risk prostate cancer.

I have recently been on a diet and lost over 15 pounds by eliminating eating between meals.

What do you think?

thanks XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

Since these set of symptoms developed recently, then this is not likely to be related to prostate or urinary issue.

Still, it may be colitis, diverticulosis or stomach issue, but considering weight loss and stool diameter changes, I would recommend doing the colonoscopy in the first place since some more serious issues may be present such as tumors of colon or rectum. Till then, please try to have high fiber food, a lot of fluids and probiotics.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
