Enquiry on Faecal Loading

Hi
My nephew has been having these severe stomach cramps which would last for 10-15 minutes .The doctor has diagnosed him with faecal loading.He has been given senokot as laxative and a suppository to help the body get rid of the waste.
He still gets these cramps and is in pain and rolls himself on the floor when the pain comes. The pain in most cases, comes just after he has eaten.
What can be done to ease the pain and help his body evacuate the waste.

Hi!
If there is a colic type of pain that makes the person roll in pain, then it can be either gall stones or kidney stones. In the former the pain is more in upper right side of abdomen and in latter it is in sides of abdomen or in lower abdomen. An ultrasound of the whole abdomen should be done. Other than this trapped gas can also cause similar pain.

If there is fecal loading then your nephew would be suffering from constipation. Is this so?  If yes, then causes of constipation will need to be looked into such as diet poor in roughage or fiber, dehydration, diabetes, hypothyroidism, colon disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticular diseases, cancers, severe acidity etc. It can also be due to milk allergy and other food allergies. Please discuss with your doctor. Treating the cause will take care of pain. Something to control acidity will need to be taken along with diet high in fiber and water. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
