Hello

* The headache with constipation and absence of menses triad indicate underlying hormone imbalance affecting various body organ system. The colonoscopy will never stop the menses flow in any manner.
* Currently follow following management guidelines

- consume tablet Paracetamol extended-release ( 650 mg ) morning and evening after meals
- ispaghula husk with lukewarm drinking water at night regularly
- avoid anxiety and stress
- regular walking, exercise
- keep blood sugar, cholesterol and weight under control

* Do follow up with all the available blood tests reports so that further action plan can be figured out in that context only.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

I usually have normal bowel movements, once a day. 4 days ago, I had a 24 hour period of cramps and very loose bowel movements for no known reason. That stopped after the 24 hour period. I have , now not had a bowel movement of any kind for 3 days. I feel fine with no pain whatsoever. I had my last colon oscopy (sp?) 4 years ago. I had no polyps and very few diverticula, and the gastoenterologist said everything was fine, That was my third one since I was fifty. I am now 78, I have no genetic history of colon cancer, Is it normal to not have a bowel movement for this many days when before the 24 hour episode of loose stools and gas I had normal bowel movements almost every day. I have no pain and I feel completely normal other wise and I try to walk a little each day to exercise?

Need Answers I am a 24 year old Native American female. I do not drink nor do I smoke. No past surgeries. No family history of Colon cancer, Crohns or IBS. No health problems before these symptoms start showing. I ve had Sharp lower abdominal pain for the past few years. I went once to get it checked out because the pain was getting unbearable. The doctor said I was a little bit anemic and I had H. Pylori and gave me antibiotics. Still after a year I was still having these pains. It would be on both of my sides above my navel from time to time. but mostly in the lower abdomen. I ve had blood in my stool from time to time as well. but nothing more than that. What scared me recently that made me go into the ER. When I went to the restroom I would have bleeding from the rectal without a bowel movement and this has been going on for more than a week now.When I did have a bowel movement there would be more blood along with blood clots. The blood is dark red. The doctor did an exam down there for a sample. Took an X rays and they said I was constipated and I had gas blockage. I don t feel constipated. My sample they took came back positive for blood. Then I had to send in a stool sample as well. Few days later that test came back positive for blood. Now I m scheduled for an colonoscopy. I m scared that maybe they are not telling me something. what is wrong with me?
