Colonoscopy orange jello

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy orange jello

colon

The thought of it is very scary but in reality it's as routine as a shot at the doctor. As far a foods, I ate orange jello, broth, and drank ginger ale, gatorade, and water. I was starving at the end of it but it wasn't bad at all. Good luck to you. I know you will do just fine. I will let you in on a trick that worked for me. I dabbed some lavendar essential oil on some cotton balls and would close my eyes and take deep breaths of the lavendar to calm my nerves. It worked.
Post colonoscopy problems by Ted174 Tags: distension, post colonoscopy, pressure, diagnosis, Dysbiosis 2 days later my abdomin started to distend. Within 2 weeks I went from 34" waist to 42" and lost 12 lbs. Have severe pressure in belly and diaphragm. Hard to breathe. Had ultrasound, full blood labs, x-rays and EGD. Still no diagnosis! What's wrong with me? Could it be Dysbiosis? And what would be the remedy? It's like my life has been taken away. I have no energy and am in pain.
which is my only vice. I have my colonoscopy scheduled for the 19th of December and doctor wants to run a tube down my esophagus to see what else is going on in there right after that; should I do that test before the colonoscopy? What else could it be and should I be doing anything else? I also had an abdominal ultrasound done last week and everything turned out normal. I carry arounf 40-50 pounds of stenographer equipment everyday, so just wondering if I could have ruptured something.
) this will be my first colonoscopy, it's scheduled for sept. 24th. Lets see... for my colonoscopy prep: clear liquid diet day before procedure (starting morning- breakfast). I ordered some boost breeze orange flavored (nutritional drink): Online. i read that it's clear liquid. I was thinking that I would have sierra mist, apple juice, lemon jello, chicken broth. I read that popcicles are ok (If it has no fruit chunks). Starting noon- start drinking Nulytely....

Do it together...naaaa.....I don't want to.....maybe we should....hmmm.....
1-i have hemmorhoids due to my stomach issues/ im scared that the colonoscopy will hurt badly due to this...im also scared that even if it doesnt hurt during the procedure...it will aggravate the hemmorhoids so badly that they will hurt afterwords... any thoughts? 2-i have a chest injury from lifting weights. and i havent gotten it resolved, because the orthopedic doctor iwentt to was useless. its around the sternum area. i have heard that a side effect of the upper gi is chest pain...
It's not spots here and there... it's a lot of blood after he wipes. He has a colonoscopy next month, but he's scared he might have cancer. Has anyone else had this problem? Inbox me or comment please. I'd like to ease his mind if I can.

The lower GI and the colonoscopy both have you on a liquid diet the day before. So you eat lemon jello (you can't eat red or purple jello because it comes out looking like blood) and chicken or beef broth (not regular soup) and they tell you what types of drinks you can have. At the end of the day they give you either pills or another type of preparation to take or use to clean you out so after that you can't eat or drink anything for the rest of the night.
What about Jello? I know its sugar, but I can eat Jello and be ok. Fruit will destroy me. What is the difference? How bad is the sugar in Jello?
The pain has progressively gotten worse over the past year. I've also had an endoscopy, upper GI and colonoscopy, (all with normal results) in January 2005. My blood work is always normal, which confuses everyone. I guess because they think something "has" to be elevated. I was diagnosed with gastroparesis in 1999 but since have been told I do not have it....go figure.
I even had a couple of accidents in bed-YIKES! They did a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and lots of tests for bacterias and parasites--no findings. It lasted 2 months!!! The rampant diarrhea just went away on it's own. Now I am left with a horrible, but predictable situation. Raw veggies and Nuts (a staple in my nearly-vegetarian diet), Eggs, Bananas...all leave me with this feeling of being hit in the stomach (center, just below the ribs) with a baseball bat.
I also had an EGD and colonoscopy. These were normal and the procedure is quite easy. Really the coloscopy preparation drink is the only unpleasant part. I also had normal ultrasound, CT, and enterography. This may be an unusual infection or a nasty virus, but based on my experience I do not think this is in your head. I do think you should see the labs yourself and you should seek personal support from anyone close to you. Your recovery is likely to be slow like mine has been.

Jennifer375 - I have run the backterial, protazoe and similar tests and found nothing. I've had my gall bladder checked, done an endoscope, done a colonoscopy, and still....I get nothing. I'm suffering from these attacks at least once every other month now, which is the most frequent. I just want to end these attacks....once and for all.
Hi Mark, My nasal steroid worked well no discharge after 2 weeks of using it, but I still have pressure in sinus areas sometimes and phlegm is also there. I am going to Dr. today to see when can I stop my nasal spray and why I still get pressure at times. One more thing, my phlegm and vision problem seem to go worse with weather, food (especially) and stress.
At first I thought it was my liver because it got worse when I drank, so I got a PET scan of my liver and spleen and got blood tests and everything was normal. I also got a endoscopy and colonoscopy because I was constipated for 2 weeks and that was all normal except for chronic gastritis. My uncle is a nurse and said that the pain sounds like it could be my gallbladder, so I had a ultrasound on my gallbladder, pancreas and right kidney 2 days ago and they said everything is normal there too.
i just had a bout at around 3am this saturday morning...i had felt this harsh pain, like gas regurgitating (sp?), from my throat into a burp in days leading up to this morning. I eat alot of spicy foods, drink coffee, and consume alcohol regularly, so i think it might have to do with these foods that trigger my stomach to want to throw it up but instead end up having a hard stool followed by liquidy diarrhea along with POURING sweat...
00 a.m. 2 weeks later. It turned out to be a chocolate cyst the size of an orange and stage III endometriosis (which is weird because I have no symptoms). They initially went in with a scope through my belly button, but had to do a laparotomy instead. I woke up with one staple in the belly button incision and seven staples in an about 4 inch incision at my bikini line. When I woke up I was scared because I could feel the bikini line incision and wasn’t expecting it at all.
I have heard a surgeon in my place talking about buying BMW through mobile when performing colonoscopy while the patient was conscious, and the colon was ruptured. Afterall the surgeon was not found guilty because no one can prove the rupture was directly related to the mobile conversation. Such act should be condemned no matter the doctors may be disqualified.... they deserve it, right?
The last two weeks he can not or does not eat at all. Maybe jello and yogurt but that is all. The Dr increased his enulose and his spirolactone last week, but either that or somthing has just made him throw up all the time, all yesterday and all night last night. He tells me he wants to do things ( sometimes ) but says he just cant get up to do it.
