I know I should be considerate when someone in pain. I try to put this fact it is the labor room people to be blamed really, the woman before deliver has labor pains and these people put the woman on pain killers and epidurals and reduc the pain. After the delivery when they are out of the labor room, they succumb to intense pain which is far less than the labor pains. If not the pain killers are given every woman shall experience the labor pain which is too unbearable

Is this your complaint? or your wife's? Anyways, tell her not to worry, it happens for a few days untill the uterus comes back to normal size. Even i had this pain last year after my delivery, it subsided in 10 days time. My doc told me not to worry, but report to her if i hav ebleeding and excess pain.

Hello, my husband is in a lot of pain right now. It happens sometimes after he eats. His chest and throat tighten up, he produces more saliva then normal and has to spit it out because swallowing is very painful. He has to wait for his symptoms to pass. I think he may be having an allergic reaction to something? It doesn t happen every time he eats.

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.
