Hi,Sikandar,thanks for query.It is good that your scopy reports are normal.Which rules out major causes.I hope an ultrasound is also done,if not please go for one.In case of all the normal reports and having problem means ,you can have IBS(irritable bowel syndrome).This type of problem occurs in this.Anxiety and your nature plays a big role in this.Just try to look for this.Treatment is symptomatic.you need to take care of what you are eating.bye.

I have been having loose and also diarrhea type motions for the last three weeks. I have had a sample test done, and no infection is present. My diet is normal and I eat reasonably healthy. My only relief has been to take some codeine which I have had for recent surgery. I have soft motions normally. I have also had a sphincter repair done about 15 years ago. I have to near a toilet at all times at the moment and it is putting me under some stress, which cannot be helping the situation! I would love to continue with this but I am unable to pay at this time, thank you anyway.

My husband has genital herpes and was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He received 1 treatment of chemotherapy and has run a fever everyday for about 2 weeks. About five days after his treatment he noticed discomfort of the scrotum. It was red on both sides and had areas of what appeared to be pus filled lesions. Could this be a side effect of the chemo or is this an outbreak. He is taking valtrex and applying a cream. It seems to be improving slowly. Should he tell his oncologist about the herpes. Will it effect his treatments and does chemotherapy increase the severity of outbreaks.

Hi! Last June I had a perianal abcess, drained and packed. 4 weeks later it healed. A week after it healed I went to hospital feeling generally very unwell, I also had stomach cramps, high temprature, constipation, feeling faint and I had lost 2 stone in weight. I was addmited to hospital, the next day I had a CT scan. The scan showed that my bowel was very inflamed, and that the lymph nodes in my abdoman were enlarged aswell. The consultant thought it may be Crohn's. A few days later it was decided that I should have a sigmoidoscopy. Before the sigmoidoscopy the consultant came and asked me about my sexuality, Im gay. He suggested that it could be a sexual transmitted infection, (LGV). Even though I didn't think it was a sti, as I know what I have and have not done, which I did explain.

The sigmoidoscopy showed colitis and proctitis. The consultant wanted me to have test done to see if it was a sti and I was perscribed 3 weeks course of doxcycline, I was discharged from hospital.

Two weeks later I went to get the results of my sti tests, all came back negitive. I hadn't felt any improvment, but instead of having constapation I was now having Diahorrea up to 10 times a day. I also started getting alot of noise from my stomach (gurgling noises).

The consultant sent me for a colonoscopy and gastroscopy. The colonoscopy still showed signs of inflamation but not as bad as when I was in hospital. The gastroscopy biopsi showed that I had helicobactor. So I was perscribed treatment for this. The consultant then sent me for a MR scan, it showed my lymph nodes in abdoman had reduced and also the bowel inflamation had reduced.

At this moment in time I still don't feel any major improvment. Im still getting stomach cramps, diahorrea has gone down to 2 to 3 times a day (diahorrea now since last August), and on a few occasions I feel faint and a bit 'out of it'. By the way I have put the 2 stone in weight back on.

My consultant has been very good at getting me tests ect, but I still have no diagnosis or idea what it is. I would be gratful for any advice you have. Thanks
