Fecal Incontinence Fecal incontinence is the inability to control your bowels. When you feel the urge to have a bowel movement, you may not be able to wait until you can get to a restroom. This can cause you to have accidents. CAUSES This condition may be caused by: • Constipation.

Straining to pass stool may lead to hemorrhoids. In later stages of constipation, the abdomen may become distended, hard and diffusely tender. Severe cases
In the lower part of the rectum, anus, are small pads that consists of connective tissue and blood vessels. Hemorrhoids means that these anal cushions become enlarged. Hemorrhoids are common
It is also caused by your slowed digestion and the pressure your uterus places on your rectum.
Have you undergone surgery recently? Have there been complications since? There are attorneys that you can call to help you identify your rights no matter what form of documents you signed. You are entitled to file a lawsuit that will compensate you for additional medical bills you may have had to pay to fix your issues caused by the mesh. Pain and suffering is not something that you have to just "deal with" when you can hire a lawyer to file a lawsuit and take care of it for you.
This week in my clinic I learned about what to check for when looking at a fecal sample under the microscope. After being given the sample, I put together a fecal exam for a direct smear and a fecal floatation. My mentor then showed me how to work the microscope and what to look for in a sample through an example chart. She then made me look at the sample and tell her what I saw. With this particular patient I was able to see Roundworms/Hookworms eggs on the fecal exam. Roundworm eggs are in a round shape with a lighter outer membrane whereas Hookworm eggs are oval with cluster of round eggs in the middle. This was an exciting moment for me due to the fact that I have never had the chance to try and search for fecal worms on my own. Most of the time if one of the nurses saw something
Intestinal blockage, particularly in newborns (meconium ileus) Severe constipation Foul-smelling, greasy stools Poor weight gain and growth Straining frequently while passing stool can bring about piece of the rectum — the end of the large intestine — to project outside the anus (rectal prolapse). At the point where this happens in children, it might be an indication of cystic fibrosis.
Imperforate Anus The anus is an opening where bowel movements, or stool, leave the body. Imperforate anus is a birth defect in which the anus is missing, blocked, or in the wrong place. Stool normally passes through the large intestine before leaving the body through the anus. When that cannot happen, stool may back up in the large intestine or leave the body through another opening. Most of the time, an imperforate anus can be fixed with surgery.
Prolactinoma is usually a benign tumor that appears as a result of the monoclonal expansion of a cell line of adenohypophysis lactotrope cells . Pituitary tumors represent the most common intracranial neoplasms accompanying serious morbidity through mass effects, and inappropriate secretion of pituitary hormones . Prolactin-secreting tumor (prolactinomas) is the most
Symptoms Most often this disorder begins in the teen years all the way to the twenties. A straining effort is necessary to expel stools. These stools are not frequent and are hard in nature. The abdomen becomes distended or bloated with movement of
Enemas for Colon Health There was a time I use to consider the colon as a passage for waste products. However, after reading a couple of health related articles, I found that the colon plays many roles in the body, and not just as a passage for waste products. Unfortunately, it is one of the less recognized organs in the body.
Promoting Urinary Incontinence in Women after Delivery by Linda Brubaker Introduction The paper is purposely meant to critically criticize a nursing article entitled Promoting Urinary Incontinence in Women after Delivery authored by Linda Brubaker and was published on 25th May 2002 in the British Medical Journal. The article was picked since urinary incontinence is a challenge that most patients fall short of deliberate with the medical practitioners and clinicians thus rendering it a huge complication that is not often reported and treated (Chiarelli & Cockburn, 2002). Urinary incontinence is among the monotonous perennial nursing conditions that are visible in basic care practice. The condition is often popular compared to diabetes and other
Urinary Incontinence (UI) is the sudden loss of urine that passes through and it is an involuntary functioning of the bladder. In simpler terms, it means an individual urinates against their desire to do so, prior to reaching a restroom. When the muscles that make up the bladder are damaged,
A prolapsed umbilical cord can be a life-threatening situation for the baby. The compression of the cord causes oxygen deprivation which can cause death of the fetus. It often occurs when the membranes rupture during delivery. A few emergent interventions that the nurse should take include administering oxygen via nasal cannula, call for help and prepare the mom for an emergency cesarean section. The nurse may also insert a sterile glove inside the vagina to relieve pressure on the umbilical cord and help restore blood flow to the fetus. Possible complications that the mother may experience include birth canal trauma if forceps are used rapidly during vaginal birth and blood loss or infection during a cesarean birth. Possible complications
Colorectal cancer mainly starts at colon or the rectum. They are common in most of the way like features, but they have different treatment.
