'Chronic' means present for a long period, 'uretheral' means related to 'urethera', which is the tube connecting urinary bladder to the exterior and 'obstruction' means that there is hinderance to the outflow of urine. The pain / discomfort may be due to the dilated urinary bladder (as it cannot empty itself fully) or due to infection (which tends to occur in stagnant urine) or due to the causative factor (which could be stricture, stone, cyst, tumour, inflammation or the drag because of prolpse of uterus or vaginal wall). I think your mother requires a clinical examination by a urologist and a gynaecologist. She would require some investigations including urine examination (routine test and culture), Ultrasound examination alongwith post void residue and a uro-flow study. She may need a cystoscopy for further evaluation, depending on the results of the investigations. Proper treatment can be planned only after the above evaluation.

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.
