    Why am I getting bowel spasms?

    Following bowel cancer surgery nearly 3 years ago I have been experiencing bowel spasms over the last 3 months one attack so severe I was sweating and it caused explosive vomiting. I am concerned about this and would like some guidance.

    Hi there

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    I am sorry to hear about the problems you are having with bowel spasms. This certainly sounds like something you should speak to your doctor about as it is not usual to be experiencing these symptoms.

    I am sorry that I cannot really offer much advice to you other than to see your Doctor for further investigation.

    If you'd like to send your questions through to Bowel Cancer Australia's Nurse Adviser we'd be very happy to get in contact with you to provide an individualised response and advice.

    You can send your questions to us using the web form available at http://www.bowelcanceraustralia.org/bca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=305&Itemid=305.
