Avatar n tn My daughter, aged 47, has had ulcerative colitis for 35 years. She has now developed colon cancer and is being told she should have her whole colon removed. Could she not just have the tumour removed, her colon resected and not have to have either an ileostomy bag or a "J" pouch (Ileum sewn down to the rectum, with multi bowel movements each day?
Avatar m tn I have been suffering from chronic ulcerative colitis (UC) over the last twenty years. I’m in control of it and lead almost a normal life. I’m currently on 3 grams of Rafassal (Mesalazine) and 200 mg of Imuran (Azathioprine). My last colonoscopy revealed multiple areas suspicious of low grade dysplasia (LGD) in sigmoid colon and recotoanal junction. There is also doubt they might be high grade dysplasia (HGD). My doctor advised that these LGDs be removed.
Avatar f tn For a while now I've had mucus and blood in my stools.. Sometimes severe stomach cramps. I am a 22 y.o. female. I have 2 children both normal vaginal deliveries. I've had 2 stomach surgeries and will have another 1 on the 23rd of December. One was a left inguinal hernia repair and an appendectomy for a ruptured appendix. I will have laparascopic surgery of my reproductive system to diagnose an unrelated issue.
Avatar f tn In the past I had major issues with ulcerative colitis and while this experience is unlike what I went through with that, I am growing concerned that there could be something else going on. Is this a symptom of colon cancer? Having the recent passing of my sister from cancer, I have a heightened fear of cancer. Help please.
Avatar f tn I probably didn't explain it well. He said that my colon is non-functioning and is stopping my body from getting the nutrients it needs. So what your saying correct. I've had Ulcerative colitis on and off for years. Every 6 months I have to have a Colonoscopy and they always have to remove polps. My Dad died from Colon Cancer. Does that make more sense?
Avatar n tn I basically eat healthy and rarely eat greasy food. However, my mom did have diverticulitis and ulcerative colitis for many years with medication. Due to this limited information, what do you think and what would you recommend?
Avatar f tn cancer, ulcerative colitis, crohns. I have to have a colonoscopy. With my symptoms what is the likely outcome? Any ideas? I do not think it is cancer, there is no history of cancer, but I know nothing about crohns or UC.
Avatar f tn So, ulcerative colitis can cause that. It's most likely pus if it is yellow. To me this sounds like complications of your IBS or ulcerative colitis. Have you started the medication yet? Is it helping?
Avatar n tn My wife is having her colon removed tomorrow due to ulcerative colitis. The doctor wants to do the proceedure in three surgeries has anyone else ever heard of this. First creates ileostomy and removes colon second creates the pouch lets it heal then reverses ileostomy then attaches pouchh to illeostomy.
Avatar m tn There are many possible cause of blood in stool such as anal fissure, infection, inflammation (ulcerative colitis), colorectal polyps, colon cancer and diverticular disease. Colitis causes inflammation and ulcers in the intestine and may be triggered by a variety of factors such as stress, genetics and immune system status. It is best that she have this checked by her attending physician for proper diagnosis. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done .Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn “ul-sir-uh-tiv cole-eye-tiss”) is an IBD that causes your colon (a part of your large intestine) to become red and swollen. The redness and swelling can last for a few weeks or for several months. Symptoms may come and go for up to a year. These occurrences are called flare-ups. The symptoms of Crohn’s disease? Symptoms include stomach cramps, pain that comes and goes, diarrhea and blood in your stool.
Avatar f tn If it is mixed throughout your stool it might be something called ulcerative colitis. But ulcerative colitis would have symptoms of loose stools and sharp stomach pains. Do you have any stomach pains or loose stools?
Avatar f tn Sounds like some sort of Colitis (i.e. Ulcerative Colitis). I would recommend a referral to a GI Specialist for follow up. You can also post in the Gastroenterology Forum.
Avatar n tn Hi, Ulcerative colitis is a form of inflammatory bowel disease . Ulcerative colitis is a form of colitis, a disease of the colon , that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is usually constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. IBD is often confused with irritable bowel syndrome , a troublesome, but much less serious, condition.
Avatar f tn fecal matter passes from small intestine through ascending colon, then across (transverse) colon, then descending colon; if a tumor formed in the ascending colon where fecal matter is mostly liquid it would take longer to identify the problem versus a larger blockage that would impact bowel movements (in the descending colon). I would guess that inflammation of the bowel is more likely. (UC/Crohns) Best of luck!
Avatar f tn Hello, while reading your post the first thing that came on my mind was ulcerative colitis. And from ulcerative colitis you can also develop polyps. But you should definitely go check it out cause whether it is UC or polyp if you don` t check it out it could only go worse. I know you are starting to freak out and that you are scared (which is a normal reaction), but don´t be. Doctors will find out whats wrong, and I suggest you to check it out sooner the better.
Avatar n tn Could be an inflammatory colitis like an Ulcerative Colitis or a Crohns disease. Could be just inflammation of the rectum. Could be bad hemmorhoids although the fact that his stool is loose points to probably more than that, like a colitis. Could be an infection that is causing the bloody loose stools. Could be cancer, although unlikely given his age that's probably the most unlikely reason.
Avatar m tn I am in my late 50's. I was diagnosed with severe ulcerative colitis in 2004, and when my anemia did not clear up after 6 months of prednisone and other meds, another colonoscopy was performed and the colitis was completely cleared up, revealing a tumor in the hepatic flexure of the colon. This turned out to be stage 3C colon cancer.
Avatar f tn Other than IBS or spastic colon you could be suffering from Celiac Disease/Ulcerative Colitis/ Crohn’s disease, H pylori infection, diabetes, food intolerance, malabsorption syndromes, constipation, gallbladder and liver problems, pancreatic dysfunction, or taking a diet rich in sulfites. Cancers of the gut and in female ovarian cancer and PCOD too could be a cause—not meant to scare you but if all other causes are ruled out, then this can be a possibility.
Avatar m tn Have you been to a doctor for this? Black stools can be indication of GI bleeding and I really think you need to get to a doctor.
277836 tn?1359666174 Could this be something else besides ulcerative colitis ? How sensitive is this test he had done (false positives) ?I am 33 years old. How bad is it relly going to get if I dont do his method of treatment?
Avatar f tn s usually presents around the terminal ileum, the end of the small intestine before it joins, through the ileal caecal valve, the colon) whereas Ulcerative Colitis is confined to the colon. However, sometimes, albeit rarely, it is impossible for pathologists to differentiate between Crohn's and UC. I have Crohn's Colitis (in both the small intestine and colon), but this is seen in a minority of patients.
