colon

Avatar n tn hi, some doctors are more gentle than others, also if you didnt use the prep properly and didnt clean the colon thorougly then some doctors finding it difficult to look try and push the stools away, also the left side of the colon has a bend and many people complain of pain around that area after a colonoscopy, i wouldnt be over worried about it, if after a month the pain persists then ofcourse go back and see your gp.

I had a colonoscopy and was told that the surgeon did not remove enough of my colon I was diagnosed with diverticulitis two years ago.

Avatar m tn I had the colonoscopy done 3 days ago(sat) . Six hours after the colonoscopy, I had a chill, fever, and terrible headache on Sat night. So I went to see the doctor who performed the colonoscopy first thing on Monday. He pulled the blood sample for WBC counts (some indication of infection per the result) and gave me IV with antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I then went for a Virtual Colonoscopy which was not conclusive if there was a polyp or residual feces after clean out. Now doctor wants to try to do a colonoscopy again, but if he cannot get in there I might have to have a resection of colon if polyp is suspected. How invasive is this resection of colon?
Avatar m tn Hello Veejerunit7: Yes, I suffered three days of post-colonoscopy rectal spasms; severe, deep stabbing rectal contractions. I had to miss work. I would rather die than live through another post colonoscopy fallout. In addition, I now experience this pain on a daily bases but thank God it's not the same intensity as post-colonoscopy. My multiple food allergy and intolerance has greatly increased...causing this awful, life altering pain.
Avatar m tn Had hernia surgery after reversed colonoscopy and am still in a lot of pain almost a year later. Doctor said one of my muscles had attached itself to my hip bone. I have had four surgeries from the beginning of a perforated colon. Has anyone had anything remotely like this happen to them? I am so discouraged! Can't seem to find any help. My left side bulges out and I feel bloated most of the time. Please I need help! I am desperate!
Avatar n tn If I just had the simoidoscopy a year ago could it be colon cancer that is causing alot of pain in my lower side? Are these tests good for finding colon cancer in the sigmoid and descending colon? The reason I havnt had a colonoscopy is because I cannot have sedatives. Is there a chance that colon cancer comes that quickly after the Flex-sig? I am really scared. I thought I saw blood in the toilet. I am so afraid. Is colon cancer diagnosed alot around my age?
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.
Avatar f tn Your colon is not get properly removed in the first time. Have you got any result of your colonoscopy. Asked your doctor what's the exact problem you are facing.
Avatar m tn The only portion of the intestinal tract that are investigated during that test are the rectum, sigmoid colon, transverse colon, ascending colon and, when possible, the last part of the terminal ileum. An upper endoscopy visualizes the first part of the duodenum. A double-balloon enteroscopy is the only test that can really 'get into' the whole of the duodenum and other portions of the small intestine.
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 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 Am 67 year old woman. Have had symptoms for many years, starting with the first time bleeding, fever, diagnosis "non-specific colitis." After this diagnosis became irritable bowel syndrome.Then several episodes of diverticulitis. Now I'm on Asacol with no IBD diagnosis, and have over the past six months developed pain right side of belly button, especially when taking a deep breath, but also aggravated by sleeping on the other side.
Avatar m tn ve had two colonscopies since age 50, my first colonoscopy found a pre-cancerous polyp (had a more dangerous figure, I was told) along with other benign polyps that was which was removed (had no side effects after) I did a follow up colonscopy the year after and another pre-cancerous polyp (except to a lesser degree) was found and removed along with other benign polyps around the same area, the 2nd colonoscopy from a different surgeon I had a lot of stomach pain after.
1405105 tn?1281104430 I had a colonoscopy a few days ago, and I have had two bowel movements after so far. The thing is my bowel movements are flat on oneside, and normal looking on the other, and I have a crampiness type feeling. My stools are fairly soft. He found two polyps, but removed them, said he did not believe it was cancer. He did biopsy them, and Im waiting for the results... they were in the asending colon. I also have diverticulosis in the sigmoid colon.
Avatar f tn hello, jan 27 2011 my husband went to er after suffering for a week with slight abdominal pain in the LLQ. they did a ct scan which revealed the following: "in the left colon in the region of the descending colon and junction with sigmoid colon, there is wall thickening with adjacent inflammatory changes suggestive of diverticulitis. the possibility of an underlying neoplastic process cannot entirely be excluded. i recommend a follow up endoscopy when the patients symptoms improve.
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 f tn Is it possible to have "conscious sedation" for a colonoscopy without having amnesia of the experience ? I don't mind being relaxed & sleepy, but I do NOT want my memory stolen from me (even if it is just 10-15 minutes). Thank you.
Avatar m tn 1. With the LUQ pain; prior to the colonoscopy I never had any pain, it turned out to be an adhesion stuck between the colon/lateral abdominal wall, no scan or test showed this problem, it was only at the last resort of surgery that found and removed the adhesion. 2. With the RUQ pain; prior to the HIDA+CCK scan, I never had any pain, I've had almost every test (except ERCP which carries a lot of risk) and the pain has not gone away.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy a couple of years ago my question is what is a sigmoid colon-hyperplastic polyp
Avatar f tn with a gastroenterologist and have a colonoscopy done as soon as possible, so he can look at your colon. He will be able to take tiny pcs. out and have them biopsied for cancer; if nothing else they will need to be monitored to watch their growth. I have a colonoscopy every year -- the "prep" is worse than the test!. Please keep us informed as to what you find out. Some of us really do care... Good Luck.
Avatar f tn Please get that colonoscopy. If colon cancer runs in your family you need to get a colonoscopy regardless of having any symptoms even if you are only 31.
Avatar m tn I have had recurring left side lower back pain that I think could be related to the colon. It only occurs in the morning (I usually go to the bathroom to relieve in the morning) and has been happening for a few months now. My health problems started 2 years ago with pain on the left lower back as well, and doctors still have not been able to find a problem after tons of tests. I had gallbladder surgery about a year ago, and was fine for a while afterward.
Avatar f tn I had my colonoscopy today, showed hemorrhoids s the culpret. I had a chest pain all evening but feel it was probably gas. I still dont have an explination for the left side pain when eating and bloating of the upper abdomen with meals.
