abdominal pain diarrhea

by llatino

My son is 8yrs had episodes of abdominal pain, diarrhea, backup bowel and full of gas in his colon (from x-ray at dr.)

Dr. said he has constipation and gave him suppository. Ever since, he has been going to the bathroom but still complaining of pain and his stomach still look distended.

Is there any thing he can take to help release the gas b/c his dr. said gas-x won't help since the gas trapped is not in the stomach.

How long will it take for gas to go out of your body. Also, does milk make him bloated more with gas?

Hello Mrs Ilatino,

Thanks for using our abdominal pain forum, and seeking online help.

I am pleased to know that you are already seeing a doctor about the issue with your son's abdominal pain with diarrhea.

True, constipation could cause an "over flow" of poo, causing what seems like diarrhea.

What you have described though, both from the story and the x-ray findings (as best as you have described it), may indicate that your son possibly have what we refer to as subacute bowel (intestinal) obstruction - abdominal pain, diarrhea, distended abdomen "distended stomach", back up bowels on x-ray, and some trapped wind in the colon seen on x-ray...and despite laxatives, the pain is still on.

Did this pain come on over the last few days? He may not start vomiting now, if the obstruction is down in the colon (large intestines), but may vomit if the obstruction is not going off.

Have you gone back for a review? Discuss the possibility of a subacute incomplete intestinal obstruction with your doctor and see what he or she thinks. Remember, your doctor is the best person to advice you, as he or she is the only one who has physically seen your son and put all other information you might not be in a position to give me here, together to paint the whole picture.

So please see your doctor again and let him be reviewed.

Please do stop by to update us on further development, and do hot hesitate to contact us if there is any other way we could help with this abdominal pain, diarrhea and stomach distension.

We here at abdopain.com sincerely wish your son a speedy recovery, and looking forward to "hearing" from you.

Dr. O. Edema

Yes i just to ask, my sister for about 8 weks now hasnt been well and has suffered from an ongoing sore throat, although this is now being sorted out, she now has another problem. over the last 8 weeks, she has lost her exercise pattern and has put on alot of weight 1 and a half stone exactly in a short space of time. recently she has improved and is eating healthier and started exercising.
she has been bloated and had gas for sometime now, but yesterday it got worse. on saturday she went for a big workout and did lots of sit ups. from then her tummy really hurt, yesterday she had really bad diahrea (now gone) i was just wondering could this be the trapped wind being released? and her tummy being clensed ?
