Common Questions and Answers about Colon problems questions


Avatar n tn Although it might relate to your concept of magic colon problems pockets I think it is more likely that the accident resulted in some adhesions to your colon that were torn during the procedure creating some pain but this subsided as the torn surfaces healed, correcting the orignal source of pain.
Avatar n tn Does these tests at least rule out advanced colon cancer? Would these tests have shown colon cancer or at least something to some extent to warrant further testing? 8. does the symptoms point to colon cancer? With the blood now gone. 9. I feel like there is something just inside my rectum, is that a sign of colon cancer or possibly a internal hemmorroids? 10. How common is colon cancer/rectal cancer in someone my age without the family history?
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 21 and have polyasytic ovaries and when I'm on my period and I have a BM or when I'm just gassy it hurts extremely bad in my colon like a knife is being twisted around. My endometrium increases to 8mm thick when I'm menstrating. Also it is very difficult to put a tampon in I have to push under and around a wall. If u have any information it would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar n tn They have several. If you are looking for colon cancer screening then it would be a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. If you are looking for other diseases of the colon they have the lower GI and upper GI.
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 When it cures me, I may request your help in spreading the word to others on this site with colon problems. After all, who wouldn't want to share a cure? :) Thanks for all the advice and help, I'll let you know how the detox program works!
Avatar n tn You have had a coloscopy that is recent and your findings at that time were not such to raise the suspicions of colon cancer then or now with your doctor. Colon cancer is slow growing and that is why screenings are important because it allows it to be caught in treatable stages. The family history you have has already been taken into consideration. I would think a question for the doctor would be if the insurance company was not an issue, would they think you needed a colonoscopy right now?
Avatar n tn I had bowel surgery 7 months ago to remove a cancer tumor in my lower bowel, i have a temporary illestomy bag so know a little about who might be able to help. My surgeon is who i see if i have any problems, he is a general colon surgeon, also at the hospital we have stoma nurses that can answer any problems i may have over the phone or i can have an appointment and go see them. Ask your local dr to refer you to a stoma nurse and see if they can help you. hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hello! I am here to ask afew questions regarding changes in poop consistency, is a something serious?at first I pooped hard small pellets liked and I was worried about my stools so I tried to use something to checked on my stools whether there were blood in it, so when I did that the toilet bowl water changes to dark red or something, I suspect there is blood hidden inside my stools, I checked for symptoms like this it jus mention CANCER. I am only 16 with no records of bowel/anal/colon cancer!
Avatar n tn there could be loads of different reasons for the above and i am sure all treatable but i would think if u have not been a trip to your doc would be in order.
Avatar f tn Digested and undigested food that remains in your intestines, primarily, your large intestines for two weeks can be somewhat toxic to your intestinal lining. Companies that advertise colon washes do not inform you that your necessary electrolytes that regulates your heart rhythms can be washed away from chemical colon washes. The greater damage might be that your bowels are less hydrated on a daily basis, and the bowels can solidify and become hard to expell.
877337 tn?1249844450 Hello, I am new to this forum. I have a couple of questions. Two years ago, I developed Graves' Disease. Since then, I have become more and more aware of my body and how it functions. Earlier this year, I realized that I was having trouble having BMs. My Gynocologist explained that it was most likely rectocele. It was suggested that I supplement with stool softeners, which made no difference. After talking with my GP, I changed to a mild laxative.
Avatar n tn i am a 33 year old female who was told by a gi dr that i have an ulcer in my colon and cysts on my ovaries. i have been experiencing alot of gas bith burping and fating. my bowel movements are irregular i dont have blood in my stool. i have been experiencing nausea after eating certain foods. Is there some foods i should avoid eating like fried foods or hamburger? why do i have gas all the time?
533880 tn?1237612452 I have had many problems with my health since then. I underwent a lower gi and found polyps in my colon by they were not cancerous and it also said I have pre crohns, and at the time I had h pylori which was never treated until a few weeks ago. I have a question with all these issues does these things increase my risk of colon or stomach cancer. My grandmother died a month ago due to colon and lover cancer. And my dad has also had a few polyps removed from his colon.
Avatar f tn I cannot answer questions for Cervical Cancer,Breast Cancer, or even Prostate or Colon. I try to help where I can. I am still battling post Cancer problems, and if others have these I can relate to it also. Maybe try a forum where there are Doctors are located. Best of luck and my prayers go out to you.
Avatar f tn if most of your colon is removed, then you can expect more frequent and more liquid stools than if you were keeping your entire colon. the colon is what absorbs the water out of the stool on it's way to the rectum, so the less colon you have then the more liquid your stools will be. There are lots of ways and foods you can eat to help thicken your stool.
Avatar m tn Robert, I can't address the issue of the 'odds.' I'm not sure anyone can tell you anything about that until the tissue is checked by a pathologist. Whith the loss of (probably) the terminal ileum and some portion of the large colon/small colon, one of the things you will experience is the lack of a 'valve' that allows for measured amounts of contents to move from the end of the small intestine into the large intestine.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 33yr old female. I have been having bowel problems for the past few years. In the past year I have been seeing mucus, blood and blood clots (large ones) in my feces. About 4 months ago I had an extensive colonoscopy, which revealed I have IBS-C and a 'spastic colon'? Thankfully, there were no polyps or other masses. I changed my diet cutting out gluten which was a major irritate for me. However, it hasnt helped with my bowel movements.
Avatar f tn I have been having intestinal problems for about 3 months now. It started out as a stomach ache, which turned into constant diarrhea. Within 5 days I was in such intense pain that I ended up in the ER. They took a CT scan and noticed swelling in my lower intestine. They thought it was an infection, and gave me 10 days of antibiotics (cipro and flagyl). It immediately got better. However 3 weeks later it came back. I managed to get 10 more days of antibiotics and again it got better.
Avatar f tn primary Lung with muscle mets and Primary colon with lymph note mets. What are my chances of getting/having cancer and what screening tests are recommended. I am 44 and get an annual PAP and Mammogram, I have had colon polyps and get a colonoscopy every 5 years. Is there anything else I should do. I try not to worry but it is pretty nerve wracking at times.
