Avatar m tn A single polyp can become large enough to make it difficult for you to have a bowel movement. While waiting to see him, eat Activia Yogurt, and you may return to normal before seeing him. But you should also ask him how often they want you to have a colonoscopy, normally it's every 3-5 years after they find a polyp. Take care.
Avatar n tn WHEN I STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS LATE LAST YEAR I KEPT ASKING THE DOCTORS IF THEY THOUGHT MY PROBLEMS WERE RELATED TO THE NISSEN PROCEDURE. THEY KEPT TELLING ME THEY DIDN'T THINK SO. SO AFTER EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED THEY HAVE HAD TO ADMIT I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG.
Avatar f tn I'm no expert, just family who have experienced colon cancer. Most of the time, you'll get unusual digestive symptoms and often blood if there's colon cancer. Your husband didn't have blood in his stool samples, so that's good, and he hasn't experienced digestive problems, so that's also good. The whole idea is to catch colon cancer early, better prognosis, and that's why they push these colonoscopies.
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 n tn The muscle that is in the lining of the intestines which cause the waste to move down to the colon for the bowl movement can stop working well enough for the natural process to happen. I sometimes go 2 time a day and have been normal for many years, though I've heard normal for some people can be up to 2 days without a movement. Myself I don't believe that's healthy, but I'm only a lay person with a lot of experience with several issues.
Avatar m tn A good website to check out is www.************. Try to inspire your wife to cleanse, take colon cleaning herbs and go for colonics, she will never look back.
Avatar m tn Im no Dr but she knows her body best and I would have to say keep pushing till u find out what is going on. The 2 big things I know about is Celiac's and Crohn's my mom has Celiac's and I go Monday to see if dr is right with thinking I have Crohn's. I have bouts of diarreha, weight loss and pain (my lower right side) and yes at her age it is when Crohn's is normal found age 20 to 30.
Avatar m tn They will return,slowly and your emotions will be all over the place for awhile. The drugs suppress our emotions and it will take some time for natural endorphins to start working again. It all depends how long you've been on them. If your abusing them or taking high doses as well. I go to aa/na meetings to help me deal with my emotions and to stay clean. It's nice to have other people around to know what your going through so you don't feel so alone.
Avatar f tn No I haven't. I'm trying to get in to see a doctor this week so hopefully I'll find something out soon.
Avatar f tn Had cervical cancer 1971 hpv related no problems any paps all normal get paps yearly. Have at age 66 bladder weakness an restriction in colon due to radiation therapy but with out cancer in bladder or colon. Why would this Pap show adnormal cell as have every year.
Avatar n tn This could be related to your diet. You could try eliminating gas-producing foods from your diet to see if that helps (like lactose, beans, etc.).
Avatar n tn I feel like I need to go to the restroom every time I eat somthing and my colon feels loose like I need to poop, but if the bloating begins in my stomach I dont feel that feeling in my colon and vise versa. I'v had blood draws, CT scan, a upper GI, hydest scans and 2 altrasounds and nothing.
1704915 tn?1357601254 I just found this from looking up tortuous colon. I have suffered with IBS problems for a long time as related to fibromyalgia. I was sent for a colonoscopy earlier this year and the results came back that I had a tortuous colon. I think I have finally got a handle on the constipation but I take multiple meds for it: senna S x2 at night, docusate calcium 3 capsules daily with meals and Lactulose 10 mls every other day.
Avatar f tn I had surgery to remove a cancerous growth from my colon 3 months ago. It was successful and was assured that all was removed. I did not have to have any further treatments like chemo or radiation . I am so lucky! My promblem is that I have what the Drs think is a narrowing of the colon due to scar tissue and illimination is very painful and not very regular without milk of mag or fibre supplements or stool softeners.
Avatar n tn Glad to help or even listen if you need me to. It is important that you try to quit being bulimia as it causes so many health problems over time. Your life is as important as anyone elses or more. I think if you have had your liver enzymes done and electrolytes (sodium, possium etc.) and anything else the doctor wants to add. Try to keep hydrated. Bulimia will cause your enamel on your teeth to disappear too.
Avatar m tn I would suggest seeing a GI doctor. There are things you can do to make your symptoms more bearable, even if you do have problems such as IBS your whole life. In addition to seeing a GI, I would see a naturopath. A naturopath can help you figure out which food sensitivities you have through an Elimination Diet. Your dad is correct about stress and anxiety aggravating the constipation. This is because people carry their emotions in their gut, thus colon problems such as IBS.
Avatar m tn Would a sigmoidscopy be ok due to the fact that the large intestine showed up ok on the ct-scan or do you still recommend the colonoscopy? Would it be odd at my age to have colon cancer, I am 34? and finally i forgot to explain that when this all happened I was under a lot of due stress and anxiety. In fact the last two-three months have been extremely bad...Could all this be IBS?...Excuse my ignorance on asking these three questions. Again, thanks a lot for your help.
Avatar m tn usually this type eye problems are related with colon So you do colon cleancing by a naturopathy or try using a enema kit
Avatar n tn I had a pain to my right side under the ribs over two years. I did all tests, US, x-rays,gold bladder, etc. to find why I have a pain every day. I couldn't slep on my left side due to pain. I couldn't sit longer....Every day pain, pain, pain My pain come in after car accident where I was sitting as a passenger and the crush was from my R side. All doctor's said because of your accident..... Finally 3 years after car accident I decided do colonoscopy.
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!
203342 tn?1328737207 It is preventable to a large degree with testing and early detection, and certainly some cancers are related to diet and may be aggravated by poor diet and nutrition. There is, however, a form of colon cancer that is inherited and while diet may play a role in its pathology, some people will be genetically predisposed to develop tumors in the colon.
Avatar n tn When I fainted first in November the doctor said it could be do to my medication for HBP. I decided to lose some weight to try to get off. In January I fainted again. This time I fractured my leg and tore my ACL requiring surgery.(Surgery was in April.) Doctor still wasn't concerned with the fainting. I pushed and managed to have a stress test that I sort of passed. Cardio said it was abnormal but normal for me because my past EKGs show the same?
Avatar n tn To answer your questions: 1) Atelectasis is collapse of part of the lung. 2) This refers to the end of the esophagus having thicker than normal walls. Inflammation in this area can be a possible cause. 3) This means the small bowel is bigger than normal. 4) Thickening of the colon in this case is hypothesized to be due to the fact that the colon was not "inflated" at that point, so it appears to be folded upon itself.
Avatar n tn m very sorry to read you are having a difficult time. Your first thing to do is to again, speak to your doctor. 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.
Avatar f tn How long does it take for the colon to return to normal, if ever? Do the cut nerves ever get back to normal? Is it likely I'll continue to have problems for the rest of my life? I've started taking a daily dose of MiraLax, 1/2 cup prune juice and 1 1/2 tsp. of magnesium oxide powder (2200 mg.) just to have a BM. Is the MiraLax safe for long term use? I eat a healthy high fiber diet, use 2-4 tbs. ground flaxseed but it doesn't seem to be enough.
