Chronic constipation, bloated stomach, burping, am HIV positive, done colonoscopy and endoscopy

i have been suffering from chronic constipation , bloated stomach and always burping for 3 years from now. i just lose bowel after 2 to 3 days but im not still satisfied with the stool i release. sometimes it s long and sometimes short that makes me discomfort. Just this june i was diagnosed as HIV positive and i suspect that this long term disease that i got is ileocecal TB since it s an infection or opportunistic infection can be brought by the virus itself. I undergone colonoscopy and endoscopy 2 years ago but still the doctor couldn t find what s the cause of this chronic constipation and the like. That s why i suspect it s ileocecal TB. pls. advise me doc what to do. tnx and more power...

Hello,

There must be definite intraluminal cause for the constipation of such intensity in the majority of the cases.

As there is colonoscopy done before 2 years, it is strongly recommended to undertake primarily CT abdomen & pelvis and depending upon further need, fresh colonoscopy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

Hi there, i`m not sure if I could be HIV positive as i`ve had muscle aches and a strange fever that is felt more around my stomach and chest area for the last 6 weeks now. I had unprotected sex about 13 weeks ago so my symptoms started after 7 weeks. I don`t have any of the other symptoms such as a rash or swollen glands, sore throat or tiredness. Is it possible to show HIV symptoms for over 6 weeks or do they disappear sooner? I`m a 32 yr old male
