Avatar f tn I am 50 years old and my surgeons which i have seen 2 and my family doctor say i have a classic case of colonic inertia. They want to do sugery in August. They will remove 80% of my colon. I have a slow moving digestive system and muscles that dobn't work in my colon. Any-one have anything similar. It is a life ultering treatment. I just want to feel normal again. Not bloat up every time I eat, and have tons of gas all the time.
Avatar f tn (Hi Morecambe. I'm still alive). My name is Gina. I have had chronic consiptation for 17 years and in 1 month I am going to have a total colectomy. I am interested in knowing the results of your Defacting Proctogram test. If it was normal, then they can hook your small intestine up with your rectum and you will go to the bathroom normally after having your colon removed. And if they never said you have PVD, it is very likely you'll do great after surgery.
Avatar m tn Has anyone ever had there large intestine removed. Should I get the bag or hook to the recdum.
Avatar f tn I have just been diagnosed with colonic inertia and pelvic floor prolapse (including large sigmoidocele, large rectocele, large cystocele, and vaginal vault prolapse). I am 44 years old and in good shape. I am told that I need my colon removed and all the rest repaired. I am pretty freaked out by the notion of all this! Mostly, the removal of my colon... I have read a lot of the posts regarding a temporary colostomy bag and was not told I will need this. Is this still a common procedure?
Avatar n tn What will life be like for me if I get this procedure? What are the worst case scenerios for poor results or long term complications from it. Is the ileal pouch to serve as a substitute rectum a good idea. I would like to experience commentary from as many people as possible who have had such surgery and read studies of how people fare in long term follow up. I worry that I could be crippled by long tern consequences of the operation and might wish I had never gone througy with it.
1704915 tn?1357601254 Well I have been officially diagnosed with colonic inertia. The sitz marker xrays show that my stomach and small intestine are working but my large intestine is not.It is slow and sluggish which is causing the constipation and could have been the cause of why my colon has now become tortuous ( long and "loopy"). From the xrays they showed the rings passed through everything then stayed in the large intestine.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar f tn I have been told that regular colonic hydration is good for cleaning out the diverticula in a person with diverticulosis. How accurate is that? I have been wanting to go to a CCT, but was worried about it. Has anyone out there tried it? What was it like, and did it work?
5153051 tn?1364441441 I am a 28 year old female who has never been pregnant, but who has had a long battle with constipation. After having some real problems with constipation in early February, I have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse including a moderately large rectocele and enterocele seen during defecography. The enterocele actually causes the colon/rectum to collapse, obstructing complete defecation.
Avatar n tn Hello first I apologize if my English is not good I just moved in USA. I have had problems with constipation since I can remember my self.
Avatar f tn My 15 y/o daughter has total colonic inertia. She has no bowel control or motility at all and never has. She has had an ACE/Malone for about 3 years now. She had a partial colectomy in December to remove about half of her nonfunctioning colon. This was done in hopes that the rest of her colon would begin to function. Unfortunately, it was ineffective, and she continues to require daily flushes through her ACE.
Avatar n tn i also have this idea that air easily enters my system and of course if i eat a lot of gas producing food.....nwei, my remedy is to apply hot bag on my tummy which so far is working well..
Avatar n tn Thanks again. How is she now? Did only colonic irrigation helped her and how many sessions she underwent?
Avatar n tn Not sure why you think you have colonic inertia because your doctor had a hard time performing a colonoscopy. Colonic inertia is extremely rare and indicates that the muscles of the colon do not function. It has nothing to do with the shape of the colon. You also do not develop this as a complication of surgery. I have colonic inertia and had my colon removed because of this 6 days ago. I am sitting in my hospital room as we speak.
Avatar n tn I am unsure if i have IBS but closest topic. I had a colonic irrigation last week to help reduce bloating, it wasnt serious bloating i just thought that i might acheive a flatter stomach. However immediately after the colonic irrigation and ever since i have experienced severe bloating, especially after a meal, i look pregnant and it feels hard with such pressure that it is very uncomfortable to move and i feel like i have to take deeper breaths.
Avatar m tn There were presence of multiple patchy areas of ulceration seen in the colonic mucosa from rectum to hepatic flexure. The ulcers size ranged from 3 to 7 mm with surrounding erythema. The ascending colon, caecum, IC valve and 10 cm of the terminal ileum were normal. Impression - Infective colitis. The doctor also did biopsy & sent the sample to histopathology department for further analysis. Will get the reports in 4-5 working days. Once I get it, will update.
Avatar n tn Polyp is usually a mushroom like mass growing from the colonic wall and bulging into the colon lumen. Histological examination will probably be made and then it will be said if polyps were cancerous or not. In diverticulosis small pouches bulge out from the colonic wall. They by themselves are not harmful but may cause constipation and may get inflammed (diverticulitis). So, it depends on your symptoms and on what exactly will be the result of investigation of polyps.
Avatar f tn fragments of benign colonic mucosa with reactive/hyper plastic changes and focal lymphoid aggregates. Biopsy shows benign colonic mucosa with preserved crypt architecture, however mild focal crept regenerative changes noted.

1009707 tn?1276958241 Has anyone had there large intestine removed and had their small intestine attached to their rectum for colonic inertia and ended up with constipation after surgery? I heard that is a risk factor. That you can get the surgery but there might be a chance you will have constipation again one day. Also has anyone had their large intestine removed for colonic inertia and then their small intestine eventually give out on them? What happened then? . .
Avatar f tn I am a 22 year old female with horrible constipation. I went to a GI Specialist March 2009 and have gotten worse ever since. By the time my appointment with her in June 2009, I had gone an entire month without going to the bathroom. She did a colonoscopy, and said I have internal hemroids. She told me to drink miralax and citracel. My problems continued, and I have always had this horrible pain in my left side. It has now gotten so bad that it is on my right side and middle of my stomach.
