Nerve involvement with colon problem. What besides surgery is recommended ?

Hi. I have an ongoing problem regarding bowel movements. I can only go 1-2 times per week and that s with stool softener , enema, etc. I was wondering if a nerve involvement could be the etiology of my condition. I do have some lumbar pain and weakness of the legs that is transient. I was in a MVA in 1992 which caused some C1-C-2 misalignment and a few months later, a Dx of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia . Is it possible that there s an L4 - L5 weakness that can cause colon and hemorrhoidal problems. What besides surgery is recommended? I don t have insurance and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist therefore, I use my back and muscles frequently. I m beginning to see an umbilical bulge superiorly and worry about hiatal hernia too. I don t know my family Hx and have thought about the possibility of colon cancer, etc. I m going to see about getting in to a local clinic to see a Dr. Right now I work 2 jobs and my stress level is high. My mom died last yr and I also have signs of gall bladder problems. Pain, light greasy stool, nausea and vomiting, etc. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Dear Denise Lehocki
All your problems apparently appear to be from improper evacuation. As you a professional so you can understand the things in a better way. What can be the possible reasons for constipation.
1. Lack of proper roughage
2.Fast food
3.hurry worry and curry
4.improper timings of having food
5.remaining awake late night
6avoiding going to toilet due to pain from piles.
7 intestinal worms
8.lack of reflex
and so on the list goes a long way for all those acts which are against nature.
Aurveda teaches us to live close to nature have healthy diet with proper fibers.
Go to toilet on fixed timings and sit for some time
develop a relex like just on having a glass of hot water or a cup of tea go to toilet immediately in morning.
avoid worries.
Amongst herbal medicines we recommend psyllum husk in hot water or with milk.
senna leaves are good laxative . Ready made preparation in name of panch sakar churan 500mg with hot water at bed time will cure if you follow regime for fibrous diet.
Hiatus hernia if causes problem calls for surgery. If no problem then forget about it.
your nerve problem and disc problem will be taken care with a procedure we perform in ayurveda called as kati vasti. medicatd oils are kept over area involved.
