  • Quick question

    I am 6 months into my observation after double tc with seminona in both testicles the last check up was blood work only all ok the past couple of weeks I have some stomach problems and I can not stop going to the bathroom and even after I have been to the bathroom I constantly feel i need to go so my question is can tc spread to the bowel or colan and would the blood work have picked that up.

    No idea, sorry you are having issues. Are we talking urine or bowel movement? The later maybe try a stool softner, if the other see a Urologist.

        I have never heard of TC spreading to the colon, that doesn't men it's impossible, but pretty unlikely. Afraid blood work is only useful when it detects TC. It's totally possible to have TC and to have negative blood tests.

        Chances are this is unrelated. It's unclear from your post if you are experiencing constipation or diarrhea? How long has it been going on?

            I doubt very much that this is related to TC. However, *something* isn't right. Since you've had both diarrhea AND constipation, it's not your typical stomach bug or food poisoning which usually gives you diarrhea & or nausea and normally resolves in a few days.If it doesn't resolve in a day or two more, & if you can't get a quick appointment with your usual doc, I'd probably visit an urgent care center (cheaper than the ER) to get an opinion about what's going on. I doubt anything serious, but they may be able to help get things back to normal.
