Avatar f tn obviously as I can tell you've never had a hydrotherapy detox done before. If you did, you would know that hydrotherapy means water and that throughout the whole procedure, 20 gallons of water is inserted in your colon while the bad stuff is being sucked out. therefore you do not get dehydrated at all.To get more info on this , go online to colon hydrotherapy detox.
Avatar m tn I also had a few lymphathic drainage massages, and a colon hydrotherapy done which took away the swollen nodes under my arms, and reduced the swelling of the ones on my neck area. Before I went for the massages and the colon hydrotherapy, I experienced chronic fatigue, and after I did these procedures, my fatigue went away, and I have more energy now. The colon cleanse showed I had pin worms.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried colon hydrotherapy ? I’ve done 3 treatments back to back already and it has decreased the symptoms but I don’t think it’s permanent. I started the treatment 3 days ago. It’s a machine that cleans out your colon for 45 min. It’s a good way to detox. I noticed after the first treatment I had less cravings for sugar. I pretty much forgot to eat for a whole day after the first treatment bc for some reason I didn’t feel hungry (I don’t recommend not eating).
Avatar m tn Sent me for an adbominal sonogram and is requiring a colonoscopy before he will schedule a liver biospy! Why in the world would a colonoscopy be a requirement for a liver biopsy. Is that the "normal" procedure? I understand the sonogram, that makes sense. The waiting part of all of this is difficult and he wants me to wait longer for a biospy because of a colonoscopy? Anyone else have to do that? Any doctors out there that can tell me if that is a reasonable requirement.
Avatar m tn 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?
433485 tn?1321813390 Hi. I had a sigmoid colon resection last January. I just had my follow up colonoscopy and everything looked good...Thank God. However, my gi prescribed Bentyl (sp) as he says I have a hypertrophic (?) colon, which he explained is due to all of the diverticular episodes I had, causing my colon muscle to become enlarged. The reason he have me Bentyl is that he thinks that my colon is therefore spasming and causing me to still be experiencing some pain.
Avatar m tn What is prep for a colonoscopy when one has a colostomy? My instructions seem to be identical with those before I had emplacement of a colostomy (why clear a colon that hasn't been "used" in years?
Avatar m tn doter order blood and stool test and did a referral to surgent.but still have to wait 2 weeks before boking appointment any suggesitions can wait that long.
Avatar m tn if they are doing a scope on your large intestine than yes they look at all 3 sections of your colon.
Avatar f tn i had a colonoscopy the other day. the dr went around the first 'bend', but couldn't push thru any further. he said that he didn't want to push any further because he didn't want to 'tear' anything. he was being very vague about why it was blocked. i am not having any pain and my BMs are normal. i thought there was a scope on the end of these things so you can see what you are looking at. why couldn't he tell me what the blockage was?
Avatar n tn I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. My family has a history of polyps, thus I had my first colonoscopy at 37 (2 polyps) then at 46 (2 polyps) All benign thankfully. I've had complete annual physicals for the past 5 years and all good thankfully. I am due for a colonoscopy and am stressing about more polyps. Also have anxiety and that's flaring up because of the colonoscopy. Should I be concerned? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Hi, on my last colonoscopy, my gastroenterologist said I should have a repeat colonoscopy after 5 years because oI have a tortuous colon. I suppose that means he could not get a good look in that section of the colon. Meanwhile, my primary care doctor says that is NOT a good reason to have a repeat so soon because the procedure itself is risky. What to do? Please help.
577395 tn?1277401364 If she had colon cancer he would have seen it during the colonoscopy. As her daughter you should be able to call her doctor and find out what he's looking for. It may just be a precautionary move on his part. Try not to worry and see what you can learn from her doctor.
Avatar f tn Absolutely need a colonoscopy. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn My moms colon cancer went undiagnosed for a year before the colon ruptured from the tumor. If shed had a colonoscopy, she would probably still be alive. Good luck!!
Avatar n tn The best person to answer that question would be your own doctor. :-) My GI doc recommends colonoscopy by age 50, but with a family history of colon cancer I'm sure that number would be lower.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy a couple of years ago my question is what is a sigmoid colon-hyperplastic polyp
Avatar m tn About a week ago I posted a question about colon hydrotherapy but I received no response. I had this treatment done and since then I have gone more than usual. I am scheduled for another treatment but I would like to know if this is accepted by the medical field as a safe and effective method of colon cleansing. Or some comments from others who have been through this before. Please respond.
Avatar m tn you have been through so much and I really appreciate the fact that you took time to share it with me. Before I read your response, I had decided against the colonoscopy even though my recent ER visit indicated significant blood loss (I just read the labs and they were pretty bad). The 2 exams that I watched (live) were fairly brutal; the GI doc told me that most aren't that bad...
Avatar m tn He was sooo scared about going for a colonoscopy because of his heart. The part he said that was the hardest, was drinking all the stuff the night before because it makes you stay in the bathroom a ton and he felt it cause his palpitations to be worse. His wife was all worried that he would not do the test because he was so worked up and having more palpitations because of his anxiety--he was terrified the meds for the test would cause more issues.
Avatar n tn I took her to the doctor, but they are referring her to a specialist for a CT scan and a colonoscopy. Does this sound like colon cancer? If so, what should I expect? Is there anything else that it could be? I'm really worried about her.
Avatar m tn I am 45 year old male with constipation and mild right side abdominal pain, i also have experieinced pretty significant lower right side back pain but recently have moved so i do not know if the back pain and constipation are related. I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago after a postive FOB test and only one small polyp was found that was benign. My appetite is good and other than the change in boewl habits during the last few weeks i have no other symptoms that could be considered colon cancer like.
3986919 tn?1352125983 The doctor told me to call my brother and sister and tell them to have a colonoscopy asap. He also said my 3 children, when they turn 40 NOT 50 should have a colonoscopy. So to all you out there over 50 who haven't had a colonoscopy yet.....please go have one done. Trust me it is NOT as bad as it sounds!! And it could save your life!
Avatar f tn I just had my second colonoscopy on Tues after a colonoscopy one year ago. The first one was stopped because of a tortuous colon. I thought I was having a bad painful dream when in reality I must have woken up at one point as the Dr was trying to maneuver the scope through the twisted part of my colon. I was given the option of the enema(which I had years ago)or another colonoscopy with deeper sedation. I chose the colonoscopy. I was given "Propo...
Avatar n tn I've been having stomach pains, with a lot of gas pains, for over a year. They come and go. Lately (last week) I discovered a "lump(?)" that I believe is waste in my ascending colon. It won't pass through. I can move it down and feel, hear, waste getting past. I think it's waste because I can move it. But I can't get it to dissolve or soften up so it will pass through. I've increased my fiber intake and am drinking lots of water. Any ideas on what else to do?
Avatar f tn I did not know this, and did not have a colonoscopy until I had symptoms at age 46. At that time I was diagnosed with Stage IIIc colon cancer. If I had regular testing from age 40, my cancer would have been found in a much earlier stage. Early detection is very important in colon cancer, and despite what anyone tells you, it is not necessarily an indication of poor diet. Some people have a genetic predisposition to colon cancer.
