Abdominal pain and loose Slimy stool – Prostate or Digestion?
QUESTION: Pain in lower abdominal and stool is loose and slimy. As you are reporting loose and slimy stool; I could think it might be related to some acute pathology, the most common of which is of parasitological origin.
ANSWER: Hi Donald,
There are many pathologies related with lower abdominal pain, including
Therefore, you must perform a stool specimen examination for parasites, candidosis or any other abdominal infectious disease.
Another possible explanation could be related to any pathology of prostate. In case you do not know that you have any problem with prostate, then most probably:
- you should check for prostate enlargement causing lower abdominal pain and associated with urine infection.
Therefore, you must run a urine test and urine culture, plus ultrasound of lower abdomen, including the kidneys, bladder and prostate, and
PSA to exclude any possible cancerous problem of prostate.
If you already know that you have any problem with prostate, and at the same time, are taking medications for that problems; the symptoms you are telling are most probably related to the intolerance you might have with any of these
Therefore, it is a must to discuss these problems with your doctor to see how you can manage this situation (whether you will need to change your treatment scheme or not).
I do not know if you have done any intervention (surgical or
radiotherapy) in your prostate or any other organ as part of your
treatment scheme for prostate cancer or other cancerous problems you might have.
If this is the case, that could explain your problems and urging a talk with your doctor.
The signs you are referring could be also related to alimentary problems, most probably an intoxication. Therefore, recall what you have eaten or taken before the symptoms appeared. If the symptoms persist and they become worse, then you should ask for emergency help.
Meanwhile, if this is the case, you may drink around 2 l of warm water, and wait until you vomit. You can repeat once more time to clean your stomach for any rubbish you have eaten.
You can have some lemon soda drink to make your tummy feel better and keep warm.
As you may see, my judgement is very poor as you are not offering the whole picture of your medical background. However, I hope I helped with some suggestions that you will need to discuss with your doctor.
All the best!
