Today we’ll talk about Constipation.
Firstly we will understand the mechanism of passing the Stool, In this process, we will see the Rectum and Anus, Rectum is the lower part of the Large Intestine. When the stool is passing it creates the pressure in Rectum and relaxes the Anus which helps to pass the stool.
What is Constipation:
If a person is not able to pass stool 3 times a week then that person is suffering from Constipation.
Some patients’ stool becomes harder and they are not able to pass it.
Some patients pressurize their lower stomach so that rectum pressure can increase and they can pass stool easily.
Some patients also use Finger to out the stool. Some patients pass the stool 2-3 times a day but still, they are not satisfied.
Some patients also have pain in the Lower Part of the Stomach or in the Anus.
Constipation Risk Factor:
Cause of Constipation:
Most of the patients raise query that they are suffering from Colitis. Generally Colitis-suffering patient suffers from Diarrhea instead of Constipation. But if Colitis in the rectum then it may be a chance that the patient can suffer from Constipation.
Complications in Constipation:
Whenever the constipation-suffering patient visits us, we discuss everything with them very well, we also discuss the alarming symptoms as well. As these alarming symptoms help us to know that the patient is suffering mild, moderate, or severe constipation. If the patient has alarming symptoms then it means the patient is suffering from severe constipation.
Alarming Symptoms of Constipation:
Firstly we start the medication for all the patients. If the patient is not responding to the Medicine and they have alarming symptoms as well then we diagnose them.
Diagnose for Constipation:
In the Colonoscopy, we put one endoscope in the patient’s stomach through which we study their Large Intestine.
In MR Defecography, we provide medicine to a patient and asked them to pass out, and during that time through the MIR we study that there is any issue in Rectum or Anus.
In Anorectal Manometry, we put a thin tube in Anus and check the pressures. If the rectum is not able to create enough pressure and the Anus is not relaxing then this condition is called Anorectal Dyssynergia.
Through this, we determine the movement in the Large Intestine. In this, we give a capsule to the patient to swallow and we do an X-Ray to check the movement of that capsule. If the Movement is less then it means the Large Intestine is working slowly.
