Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
if you havent felt an urge to defaecate in last days then you are severely constipated. You need to have an enema to have stool once and then continue with daily laxatives later on. After that you must take plenty of water and roughage to avoid this condition again.

I have a very swollen tummy, it is painful and noticeable, I look pregnant. I am 51 and Not pregnant as husband had the snip when our 13 year old was born. I had numerous polyps which were causing extreme bleeding during my period and I was checked for menapose hormones end of last year. They said I was not producing the markers. I and the Marlena coil (not sure correct spelling) back end of the year and it has addressed the bleeding. I only have odd spotting till last week. I had slightly more bleeding, needed to wear a pad for a few days, very dark ans stringy. My husband noticed the swelling last week, but I really an see it now, it is painful, I get pain in all positions, sitting standing it is breath taking at times. Lower tummy pain and slight tenderness when pressed. Bleeding has all but stopped.

My daughter is five years old, she has had a hurt tummy and on and off fever for three days now. She has had little interest in eating but has tried, and vomited. She is thirsty and is drinking fluids. Her color is pretty good and she is talking, playing etc, even though she is low energy. My main concern is that her breath is very metallic smelling, in fact she is emitting a very metallic smell. There was some recent work on our water main and I am concerned that she there may be a metals poisoning and something more than just the flu. Should I take her to the hospital?

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
