You need to see a Gastroenterologist so he can view your colon to see what is going on. He will be able to do this with a colonoscopy.
Thanks for your reply.
I just got back from the doctor. It was a walk in clinic as i moved and cant go so far to see my doctor.
I explained everything to doctor and he is sending me for a x-ray and he wants me to go to a "stomach specialist" I dont mean to sound ignorant but is that the same doctor you mentioned? Also im wondering why hes sending me for a x-ray and not a colonoscopy.. Maybe the stomach doctor will do that.
You're very welcome, and NO you don't sound ignorant.
Yes, you will be seeing a Gastroenterologist as this is their specialty. Only a Gastroenterologist can do a colonoscopy. An xray may show something, but the doctor knows it can't show everything and it's good that he referred you to a GI doctor. You're where you should be, please keep us posted as to how you are doing and what you find out. Take care.....
yes my symtoms are back and stomache pain l ots of wind and my food is not digestin properly also my poop is mucas in on occasions any ideas what this might be also feel quite feverish at times
Reading your description and symptoms above match what I have been experiencing for about 3 months now. I have been visiting my doctor weekly and have had multiple tests to no avail as yet, am just waiting to get an appointment for a colonoscopy. Did you have any luck with your symptoms? I am feeling a bit at a loss so it’s nice to know that others have experienced what I am going through.
Any insight you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
You ARE NOT alone. I too have to help the stool exit as well. At times I have rectal pain that I have been dealing with for 4 long years. Sometimes if there is pain a RX for IBS called Dicyclomine can help if you have pain. But this drug can bind you up as well. I don't wish this on anyone.
