Unlikely at your age. Probably a fleets enema will help.  (+ info)

fecal impaction?


is there any OTC drugs that can be purchased to cure this disease?
----------

Enemas are sometimes effective...fleets enema or generic. It may take more than one enema. If you are sure it is an actual impaction you need to be aware that, if not treated, it could lead to a bowel obstruction which needs immediate medical attention. If the abdomen becomes enlarged and firm and/or the normal sounds of the stomach are gone you likely have an obstruction. If you have any doubts about if there is an obstruction please see a doctor. Then the person with the impaction needs to do measures to prevent the problem from returning. Go to this site for lots of good info http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000230.htm#Treatment  (+ info)

What is a good way to cure Fecal Impaction?


I have Fecal Impaction and it really hurts. I've tried an enema, glycern suppository, magnesium citrate, and nothing is working. I don't want to go to the hospital unless there is no other choice. But I can't stand it much longer and I'm hoping there is a solution.
----------

If nothing has worked.......call your doctor or head to the hospital. Sounds like you've tried some heavy duty stuff.

Good luck!  (+ info)

If a person has a fecal impaction should this person not eat or drink until he is able to use an enema to get?


To get it out?

How reliable is an enema-self-administered-to get rid of an impaction?
----------

I'm speaking from personal experience.....Fleet enemas have never helped me. I have taken multiple warm tapwater enemas to deal with my impactions and have had some relief some of the time. When that doesn't work, I've gone to ER and they have always administered Milk and Molasses enemas. They have ALWAYS worked. I have an outstanding question on Yahoo Answers to find out if they can be self-administered (See no reason why not) but also need the recipe. I do know this Milk and Molasses enemas MUST be administered SLOWLY.
As far as eating, I usually have nausea when impacted and don't care to eat; but I do drink lots of water.
Hope I've helped. Good luck. Impactions are not fun!  (+ info)

Tradtional Chinese Medicine for fecal impaction?


Hey does anyone know if tcm can be used to treat fecal impaction?
----------

I would guess yes. I have used and read about TCM and I know the theory as much as a layman can know. Acupuncture may be able to initiate peristalsis to move the food along. Herbs and massage may be able to do the same. But true impaction is dangerous and could be deadly. TCM works slowly and impaction is a serious acute condition that probably requires a trip to an emergency room. If not a complete blockage then an acupuncture consultation may be an option. If a blockage go to an ER.  (+ info)

Fecal Impaction/Are Diapers Necessary During The Cleaning Out Process In Young Children?


When I was a little boy (4 yo), I suffered from Fecal Impaction. I've always had memories of being a child and being unable to go to the bathroom, which really seemed to upset my parents. Enough in fact for them to take me to the ER when I was crying and unable to go to the bathroom one night.

How my parents dealt with this traumatized me I believe. After we left the hospital, I remember my parents buying diapers for me in a drug store on the way home, which upset me very much. I was placed back in diapers for a while (although I don't know how quite long) after this event.

I remember both by Mom and Dad giving me a suppository and then diapering me afterwards, which went on for a while. This humiliated me a great deal and has really effected me in a very negative and profound way. I won't get into all of the psychological repercussions of this. I was placed in diapers later maybe even up to age 6 for other reasons. But, I'm writing this b/c after having these memories
all of my life, it prompted me to write to every hospital I could think of in the area I was living when I was a child at the time of this event when I was 20 years of age. I did this in order to see if these memories were correct, and once I recieved a medical record confirming my memories, I confronted my parents and asked them why I was placed in diapers again, & told them how this action affected me psychologically. My mother had said that the doctor in the hospital placed me in diapers after giving me in an enema in the hospital, and that he recommended diapers to be used later. What makes no sense to me about this is if I was able to have a bowel movement,why would further suppositoriesneed to be administered, & more importantly, why would diapers have to be used in conjuction with supossitories when I was already toilet trained?I have so much anger towards the shame & humiliation they have bestowed upon me.I wanted to ask if there was an MD out there who can tell me if diapers
were really necessary to be used with suppositories after I was taken to the hospital,or were my parents just moronic? I think they should have known better to humiliate a child like that, but I'm interested in a medical professionals point of view.
For those who are interested. I'm a 26 year old guy.

Hi- Just a concerned person here- I do work in the Medical Field, have for over 27 years. WHY this was done to you is beyond my realm of thinking. I am sorry to hear that this effected ur adult life. I am also sorry that this has effected ur adult relationship with ur parents. Maybe they were just following the Dr.'s orders, as some folks/people think that DOCTORS ARE GOD!!!!!! (and they are NOT)- I have a few sites below that may help you out somehow. I do feel for you. I'm sorry if this didn't help. Hope it did- Email me if you'd like to. I would suggest talking to somebody. I don't want to make you upset, but, it was just a thought. Take care and Good Luck!  (+ info)

Fecal Impaction In A Child/Are Diapers Necessary?


When I was a little boy (3 years and 11 months of age), I suffered from Fecal Impaction.

I had showed the medical record to an MD of mine in the past and he had stated "Your parents put youback in diapers over this?" I wonder what another MD would think.

With all due respect, at age 26 you should be over something that happened 23 years ago. If your life is messed up because of this, it's because you choose to hang onto something that, at this point in time, is trivial. Let it go.  (+ info)

How is a fecal impaction treated?


Enema - if it has gone beyond that remedy - cleared out by hand. If it is left unresolved, it can lead to ruptured bowels which could lead to using one of those colostomy bags.  (+ info)

What exactly are you asking....are diapers used in conjunction with suppositories. I've never heard of that, but maybe they were concerned that you would soil the bed. To be in them 'til 6 would be humiliating, but they probably grew frustrated and were usure of what else to do.....cut them some slack if it's the worst thing they ever did to you.  (+ info)
