Causes Of Intestinal Polyps And Anal Sores?
I am a woman of 22 years old. Since junior high school I have started to experience constipation CHAPTER 3-4 days once and sometimes bleed, Until now I go to college the condition is getting worse once a week, finally I started taking various types of laxatives starting from dulcolax hgg slimming drugs. It has been 3 months until now but the longer the dose is higher (now I have to take 4 tablets to make a chapter) I have had colonoscopy and it turns out there are indeed polyps in my intestine and wounds in the anal area. Will the dulcolax that I keep drinking worsen my intestinal condition? How is the right handling?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The presence of intestinal polyps (intestinal polyps) and anal wounds (anal fissures) can indeed be one cause of prolonged constipation. Not only that, constipation can also occur due to other causes, for example:
Indigestion, such as malignancy, rectocele
Neurological disorders, such as autonomic neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal injury
Muscle disorders, for example due to disinergy of pelvic muscles, anismus
Hormonal disorders, for example due to diabetes, hyperparathyroidism, hypothyroidism
Unhealthy lifestyles, such as the habit of holding back the desire to defecate, alcohol consumption, psychological stress, and so on
Because of the many possible causes, treatment of constipation should not be done haphazardly, i.e. only by taking laxatives (including drugs that you often consume) continuously, especially in excessive doses and without direct supervision from a doctor. Consumption of laxatives (overdose CHAPTER) in the long term has the potential to cause you to experience various health problems, for example bloating, diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, frequent hiccups, rectal irritation, and so on.
Need to be evaluated more deeply what are the possible causes of constipation that you experience, including through physical examination, ultrasound, gastrointestinal endoscopy, hormonal examination, laboratory tests, and so on. If pure intestinal polyps and anal fissures are causing your complaints, later treatment can be done by giving doctors medication, surgery, or many other therapeutic modalities. Therefore, check yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine ...
In the meantime, you should do:
Never resist the urge to defecate
Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, water
Don't over-eat spicy, coconut-rich, oily foods
Stay away from alcohol
Create a regular bowel schedule every day
Avoid careless consumption of food that is not processed with clean, preserved food
Don't stress too much
Exercise more diligently
Hope this helps ...
