How do you manage the effect of Kyphosis and Scoliosis?
I am a 80 year old woman with many health issues with a question about the possible effect of increasing kyphosis and scoliosis that has me very thin, bent, twisted with a 5" height loss from osteoporosis and multiple compression fractures that I tolerated without any medication – a great example of self neglect and fear.
My thin frame has a very bloated gut attached I attribute to obstipation, probably from a very redundant colon and multiple abdominal adhesions.
Now a cardiologist and gastroenterologist attribute it largely to my restricted hunched body having no place for my intestine to go but OUT. The gastroenterologist did acknowledge the severe obstipation and recommended Motegrity to relieve some of the pain.
Does anyone with somewhat similar issues also have a very bloated gut? I plan to post this also on the tortuous colon thread in Digestive Issues.
