I am currently having intermittent problems with getting food thru my small intestines or that is what it feels like. I was wondering if it is possible that a disk bulge around t5-t7 could affect the small intestine function of getting food to pass on thru to the colon at the same time allowing fluid to pass right on through. I could not get a complete colonoscopy because the doctor says that the scope would not go all the way around to my right side due to obstruction and therefore did not complete it. I did the complete prep and before the exam had only clear liquid come out. I feel as though my gut is always swollen and I only get small amounts of stool at times, other times it is normal. Also lots of gas at both ends.
