Dealing with Constipation-fecat impaction

by Anita Alphin-patient

What damage does it do within the body if the fecal material has been within the body for an extended amount of time?
I have daily regualar BMs but was so IMPACTED after recent surgery.
My sides had been extended for years and the upper stomach area.
Had a hog enema and even more had been in me which surprised me that one person could contain that much poop.
I had felt muscle and bone weakness along with bloating and feeling full during meals quickly...
My body felt heavy on the left side where getting up and down was noticed.

Hi Anita. The damage is usually done to the colonic mucosa. The more the impaction stays, the more the get gets stretched out of proportions, leading sometimes to a condition called megacolon. Sometimes there is no damage at all. Hard to answer the question specifically for you though.
