Ascending colon pain symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Ascending colon pain symptoms


Avatar f tn I had around 4 days of pain a month ago, very localised to the top of the ascending colon and for the 1st day it was quite painful. The pain has just returned today and I notice that I also have referred pain around the right side of T10 area (feels bruised there). The top of the ascending colon area is tender to touch and tight if I stretch. I am in my 50s, otherwise in v.good health.
Avatar m tn I'm having pain down the right side of my body in what seems like the whole of the ascending colon. It's hard to explain, there's also a pulse like pain that starts around my hip bone or the end of the ascending colon that travels up the ascending colon. I'm very uncomfortable after a meal and I can feel a little relief after I been to the toilet.
Avatar n tn t how I got, I was treated with antibiotics but all my problems of my right side pain started in Aug 07, The pain seems to be in the region of my ascending colon which causes me stabbing / throbbing pain and tender to touch.
Avatar n tn Is there any doctor that has performed surgery to reattach a floppy ascending colon and cecum? Is this a bad idea or a surgery that would prevent a volvulus or cecal bascule? My 13 year old daughter has this condition. She has distention, intermittent pain, constipation, bile reflux, and nausea. Her cecum and appendix have been seen in the upper left quadrant, center and high in the abdomen and in the lower left quadrant but upside down on xrays during upper GI series and lower bowel tests.
Avatar m tn Does my digestion take place in the same way it did when I had an ascending colon? I think I understood the ascending colon removes water before waste travels on so - now what happens? Has my metabolism changed? I lost a few pounds (from 92 to 87) will I gain that back? That's only 5 pounds I know but it's an important 5 pounds to me - I didn't need to lose it. Five weeks later I have not gained it back - Will I in the future?
Avatar m tn I can hear the liquid squishing, and sometimes the pain even radiates down my ascending colon. I can feel a large moveable lump in the ascending colon sometimes too, which the doctor says is probably gas. Why isn't my colon pushing this stuff along, and why am I hurting whenever anything is in there? I've tried increasing my fiber, narcotic pain meds do not help, tramadol helps a bit. Could this be candida? The liquid sounds almost foamy sometimes when I press deep there.
Avatar n tn I have been having pain (ascending colon) for the past month below my right rib cage (extream right) , and the feeling tightness subsides when bed resting. Please advice what it could be & what should be done.
Avatar f tn On the other hand, colonoscopy evaluates only rectum, sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, ascending colon, and terminal ileum (very end of small bowel).
Avatar m tn Many people have right upper quadrant pain that can be associated with stomach issues, gallbladder issues or problems that result from discomfort with a portion of the ascending colon/transverse colon.
Avatar f tn Right-sided abdominal pain may be caused by problems with your liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, right kidney, or right-sided bowel (ascending colon/cecum, appendix, and/or terminal ileum), or alternatively hernias.
Avatar f tn t aware that laying on their right side can cause gas to build up in your colon and form a gas bubble. The way the colon is shaped and with the gas rising upward, when laying on the right side it gets trapped in the ascending and transverse sections of the colon and is not as easily expelled as it is when laying on the left side. I recommend trying some OTC treatments like beano, gas X, prilosec, prevacid, Mylanta, mylox etc. for a few days.
Avatar f tn It can be a tricky business removing polyps in the ascending colon. There is no reason to panic. Colon cancer is very slow growing. In my opinion another colonoscopy in three months won't reveal much. Perhaps biopsies can be taken, but that still leaves unanswered questions. The one sure solution is surgery, and I wouldn't settle for anything less than the most experienced specialist in your area.
Avatar f tn the ileocal valve was removed and now have chronic loose stools/malabsortion and bacterial overgrowth.. Starting to have pain from the adhensions which have formed,especially in the right side ..Do the symptoms get any better? or is this as good as it gets!!!!. If anyone has any helpful advice I would be grateful as it can be isolating and friends and family try to be understanding but at times you would like to chat with someone who is experiencing the same horrid symptoms.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that diverticulosis may have developed in my ascending colon? The pain in my lower abdomen is not like the pain I had when I had diverticulitis but I can't help but wonder if this is what I have again. Thank you.
Avatar n tn And also, these slight hardness and pain can be felt with my fingers even more when I lie down completely flat on the bed or floor. The pain is a bit sharp and it seems to source from the ascending colon.
Avatar f tn In major issues like Colon Cancer, black tar colored stool is due to melena, and this is usually found in ascending colon(The right side of your abdomen) So opposite side of where your pain complaints are. Black colored stools can be caused by many issues, not just diseases. It can be caused by food, high iron, medicines,etc. But to be on the safe side, and to avoid causing more issues or prolonging it, you will want to visit your doctor and let them know whats going on.
Avatar f tn I just had a CT scan and have been diagnosed with a "mild wall thickening of the ascending colon and hepatic flexure" suggesting a colitis. Endoscopy may be helpful to further evaluate. Everything that I have been reading says that the most common symptoms are stomach cramping, diarrhea (even bloody diarrhea), frequent loose stools, fever chills, nausea, weight loss, and tiredness. Out of all these I only have lower abdominal pain and tiredness.
Avatar n tn if it was sever pain let some body hold your right arm for 5 mins if the pain is gone it ia appendcitis if it has nothing to do with it you got 2 other propabilties could be liver or the ascending colon one viceralgine tablet as anti spasmodic could make u o.
Avatar f tn Another thing I experience is bruised like feeling in ascending and transverse colon. Especially after a bowel movement. I usually will have a day or two without cramps and going to the toilet only once to going 3 to 6 times in a row. Never had this problem before. Very afraid this is something really bad. Been to Dr and we have done a complete blood count and all is fine.
7003050 tn?1390124013 If you are a smaller person you can actually feel your stool in the right ascending colon. Once the stool moved to the transverse colon it's harder to feel. Going to the bathroom and your normal colonic movement will move the stool along. Sometimes women notice it after pregnancy as we get more in tune/focussed on our abdomen. So totally normal.
Avatar f tn Bloated feeling in stomach and intestines. Recurring tenderness in ascending colon area. Headaches and what seems to feel like dry or tired eyes. Had an abdominal ultrasound and results are a mild fatty liver. I have high cholesterol. Had upper endoscopy and diagnosed with gastritis but I don't get heartburn or sore throat. Taking Protonix and Ranitidine doesn't seem to be working much. Nausea is the worst of the symptoms because it is constant. Not enough to vomit though.
Avatar m tn s also the upper portion of the ascending colon. It could be any of these things. I was fortunate that when I had that pain that mine was either colon pain or it could have been a spastic gallbladder at the time. So, that can occur if one has IBS, just so you know. It's not always gallstones and it's not always something horrific. Just serious enough to pay attention to and make diet modifications.
203342 tn?1328737207 There was evidence of patent end-to-side ileo-colonic anastomosis in the ascending colon. This was characterized by erosion. A 6mm Sessile polyp was found in the ascending colon. Several biopsies were taken and revealed the polyp was benign and that I have inflamation throughout the colon and Gastritis in my stomach, duodenumitis and ileoitis? I'm not sure if I understand all the results. Perhaps you can help me better understand it all? The doctor prescribed Flagyl, Nexium and Entocort.
14947301 tn?1437504668 s getting worse every day--, in my stomach, back and bowels (pinching-type pain on ascending and descending colon). I also have bright blood in my stool, I oscillate between severe constipation and mild diarrhoea. Ultrasound and CT-scan revealed nothing, no gallstones, no lesions. Wondering if I could have celiac disease. Would a biopsy of my duodenum show it if I had it? I've been eating lots of gluten lately to make sure it would show up if the doctor tests me for that via a biopsy.
