i've rescheduled my surgery a few times, but i either lost insurance or found out i was pregnant. i'm getting ready to have my last baby at the end of the month c-section so as soon as i have him i'm going to schedule the surgery, but i'm afraid that it may be worse than it as 4..4 1/2 years ago.
I am scheduled for surgery to remove two pre-cancerous polyps that could not be removed during colonoscopy as one is too large and flat and one is ulcerated. They are close to each other allowing one resection. HOWEVER, the two surgeons I have consulted with both say the same thing: that they will remove the appendix, cecum, ileum cecal valve, some lymph nodes in that area and, I believe, some blood vessels (a curtain).
35 Female, had endoscopy& colonscopy, diagnosed and removed 12 polyps (colon) 9 hyperplastic 3 adenamatous. Doctor stated for follow up-colonoscopy every 2 years. Doc has now called back wanting a "next available" Barium X ray.I have a family history one death-maternal great grandfather colon cancer. My issues leading up to this procedure: gallbladder removal( i was fine no pain, cramping etc before my GB surgery), multiple uterine fibroids.
I lost my son and grandson due to a Desmoid tumor which if they're going to develop, they do so after removal of the colon (they're rare). My surviving son is almost 40 and he lives a very normal life. He just completed a 100 mile trail run, is a marathoner, ultrathoner, mountain biker, cross country hiker, and until recently competed in jujitsu. He eats pretty much what he wants and has 2 BM's a day.
7 years ago my husband was diagnoised with colon cancer, because of complications he has undergone 6 different surgeries and now has only his small intestine left. On June 9th he had an endoscope and which showed that his stomach from top to bottom is full of polyps. There were sever biopsies performed and they came back non cancerous but the Dr. said that he would not attempt to do surgery on my husband because he would have to remove the whole stomach.
Have a friend that is about 82. He had surgery fop or colon cancer about two years ago. He has been on some type of Chemo and oral meds since. Was told on one CAT scan, it was stable. Last CAT scan showed rumors had gotten bigger. I don't have many details. The doctor has stopped the Chemo and Cancer meds. Said he discussed it with some board and no other treatment suggested. I find this hard to believe! Can't they do surgery again to remove the rumors?
My wife is suffering from FAP and recently she had total proto colectomy as she had carpet like adenomatous polyps in the entire colon. However the biopsy report suggested that the polyps hae moderate dysplasa. The surgeon based on scan report indicated that she has one big adenoma in the ampulla region and that needs to be removed. He has advised to go in for removal through endoscopy in order to avoid another surgery.

I started in 1992 when I discovered the polyps and removed the colon, had 1997 perforations and fistulas and more, almost died that time during operation just like him with respiratory failure and all for 5 days and not able to come back, 9 weeks no food other than IV, had a miracle on the 7 day and had been fine since then with no more complications, had gastric polyps that they used to call just gastric polyps until just now, this last month my polyps have gone crazy, my stomach is now innum
I have a friennd that is like a mother to me! She is having to undergo a stomach removal because of many years of stomach problems. The only other solution would be to have a pacemaker put in to help with her issues but this would cost her $50,000.00 and is not coverd by her medicaid or insurance. I have heard the life expectancy on this kind of surgery is not very long. She has sufferd so much in her life and I think right now in this state of mind dying is probably some sort of relief to her.
What are my options other than full surgery? Should I be concerned about the Small Intestine, too? If I do have the surgery, what are the chances that I'll get UC in the next section? Thank you for your help.
Polyps in the GB, just like polyps found in the colon or almost anywhere in the body, are now considered to be a problem that can lead to development of cancer. In the past docs used to 'watch them' and if they were seen to grow then the GB was removed. But the most recent recommendation is now 'if a polyp is present, remove the GB.' Removing the GB can cause some issues due to an inability to digest fats in the manner one did prior to the surgery.
And the problem with the surgery is the large intestine has a variable blood supply so more than just the portion that's redundant might have to be removed. There are also consequences to removal of a portion of the colon. One of the largest can be on-going diarrhea, which many people find to be as bothersome as having unremitting constipation. You can make dietary changes to try to control the diarrhea, but?
I'm 31yrs old lost my colon last march to ulcerative colitis. the surgery saved my life my colon was about to rupture. waking up with a bag was not cool.giving up fresh and healthy foods for a year not cool. but this april2nd I awoke without my bag due to a j-pouch.I feel alive and the bm's are not too plenty. they range from 4-8 a day.my appetite is suffering but that isnt a bad thing for me after spending years on steroids!
Since one of the functions of the colon is to 'recycle' fluids - by recovery - some of that fluid may not be recovered and the contents of the large intestine may remain more liquid if a portion of both the terminal ileum and ascending colon are removed during the surgery. This may result in more frequent output of stool whose contents may be of a more liquid form. Some find they're able to modify their diet to decrease the unwanted side-effects. You may want to discuss this with your doctor.
In October of 2007 my husband had emergency surgery due to a small bowell obstruction caused by the mesh from a previous surgery (colon cancer and hernia repair in 2000) adherding to his small intestine. Recently from his medical records I found that during that surgery his body temperature went down to 84 and he went into respiratory failure and this was why he was place in ICU and on the ventilator for 3 days.
My family history includes lots of precancer polyp removal, and an uncle whom underwent surgical removal of some of his colon, lots of breast and brain cancer. I had lazer treatment for adnormal cervical cells and several other surgical necessities but this is taking so long and not getting straight answers. Can anyone tell me if the ct scan can be a used to diagnose or if it is like putting the cart before the horse to be done prior to a colonoscopy.
I have been suffering for 2 years. I had my gallbladder removed and the pain returned 2 months to the day. I have had MRI, Endoscope, ERCP, Cat Scan, Ultra Sound. I went to a pain management clinic and an Osteopath and even tried Acupunture I've seen the top Gastro Doc at MGH in Boston and no one can diagnose what is wrong with me. They left me with only one choice exploratory surgery. Can someone email me what test they can do which will show what this is.
Hi Gina - actually I live in England and the surgery was performed at my nearby hospital by a specialist bowel surgeon. As mentioned, I suffered torrential rectal bleeding from the colonic diverticula and so the whole of the colon was removed - from the end point of the ileum to the start point of the rectum - not right through to the anus. I know that there are surgical techniques that remove both the colon and the rectum thus connecting the ileum to the anus.
This happened during a surgery that I turned out not to even need. Mis-diagnosis, surgery done wrong, the list goes on. Almost died of scarred in colon, rectum, and small intestine. Because the damages were so complex and they were done by docs, it was VERY hard to find help from another doc. FINALLY I found one that did the only thing that could be done, take the adhesions off the small intestine and do a permanent ileostomy. So I can relate to your trauma reaction.
I had my gallbladder removed in July by laproscopic. Prior to the surgery, the only symptoms were a constant pain in right side and some nausea when eating. Had an u/s and showed a 1.3 cm gallstone, so I had the surgery. Ever since, I still have the same pain in the same place. It's not constant like before surgery, but still there. Dr said at 8 week check up that it's probably from the nerves they cut during surgery. any one have any similar problems? What else could it be?
) A colorectal surgeon performed a colonoscopy and found several adenomatous polyps, two of them large, situated on either side of the colon (exact size or nature not mentioned).
Also, if you continue to have Colitis problems I would suggest, speaking with a Gastroenterologist about regular Colonoscopy (doctors like to do this for patients with chronic colitis every two to three years). Chronic Colitis can lead to Polyps in the colon. I tell you all of this to prepare you for the worst but hopefully, with the removal of your Gallbladder all of these problems could very well completely disappear.
I also showed signs of coilits (but it was believed it was from the prep from the colonoscopy), and this time no polyps (had three removed four years ago). I was sent to a surgeon who agreed that removal of the gall bladder was necessary, and have discussed the continued problems I'm experiencing following the surgery on 4/20/10. I understand that all individuals heal and experience different symptoms following surgery; however, I can't tolerate anything.
The third day (after surgery), they put her on intravenious fluids, demoral and atibiotics and performed an xray, the fourth day an ultrasound, the fifth another ultrasound and a gastroscopy, the sixth day, emergency surgery by a different surgeon than the one who originally performed the gall bladder removal surgery (she was in very bad shape by this time). By the time she had this second surgery (six days later), she had a steady temperature of 38.5 c / 101.
I haven't had my gall bladder out yet and am due for surgery in april... argghhh My Dr says the removal of my gallbladder may cause the same problems I'm already getting from IBS.. heaven forbid. Will this ever end? Will I ever be able to go out with my friends for dinner again? I have a hot date coming up.. My doctor says anxiety doesn't help.. hello.. I'm anxious it's a first date for goodness sake.
Posted By HFHSM.D.-rf on April 22, 1999 at 22:40:03 Topic Area: Gallbladders Is it necessary or preferred to remove an otherwise healthy gallbladder incident to gastric bypass surgery? I was told that the Gallbladder may shut down post gastric bypass and should be removed. However, I have read that resultant bile dumping upon removal of the gall bladder could lead to increased risk of cancer.
A polyp was detected and he was scheduled for a colonoscopy to remove the polyp this coming Monday. Heard today that our insurance company is balking at approving the surgery saying that the doctor "jumped the gun" and should have considered other alternatives first. What other alternatives? I thought the whole idea was for those of us over 50 to have periodic sigmoidoscopies so any polyps could be detected and removed before they could be come cancerous.
Hi! I'm getting a surgery tomorrow. And this is my first time to undergo a surgery. they will do a laproscopic to get rid of the cyst and endometriosis and on top of that they will do DNC and put blue dye to check if my fallopian tubes are open. I told them i want to get pregnant that's why they are checking my tubes too to make sure they're open. now my question is, does someone here would happen to know how long the recovery time? thanks in advance.
