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 had a breast reduction in 2006. Since then I have had numerous problems with fat necrosis. How common is fat necrosis following breast reduction and what is the causes of this problem ? Also is fat necrosis painful? I also had a mammogram and ultrasound in July of 2008 with repeat films in December of 2008 which showed a increase in size of the fat necrosis in two separate areas. Any thoughts or comments on this issue. Thanks for your help.
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?
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.
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 m tn what was formerly called piecemeal necrosis or limiting plate necrosis is now usually called "interface hepatitis".
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 n tn I have been diagnosed with fat necrosis (in one breast) after a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction with a tram free flap. I noticed a little hardness in one breast. How is this treated? What is the long term prognosis? Will fat necrosis make imaging studies more difficult to read?
Avatar n tn I would definitely ask your doctor why she thinks it should be biopsied. Did your doctor mention fat necrosis? Fat necrosis is a benign condition, supposedly produced by trauma to the breast, considered somewhat rare (except in cosmetic surgery circles apparently). I don't believe it is as rare as indicated. I had a classic late stage fat necrosis lesion that was BIRADS 5 scary on the mammo and US.
624800 tn?1221801752 DCIS is ductal carcinoma in situ, also called grade 0 cancer, and is often referred to as "pre-cancer" because it is not yet invasive. I think cribiform has to do with the architecture of the malignancy. Not sure about micropapillary unless that means you have some tiny papilloma involved. I'm guessing with the central comedo necrosis but I think it has to do with the evolution of the area and its current state.

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 want to have a colonic but unsure if it will interfere with my VP shunt.
Avatar n tn Google: Colonic Pacing May Be Effective in Treating Total Colonic Inertia Constipation. You'll find the article on Medscape. You'll have to sign in to get to it, but the site is worth it.
552053 tn?1273331741 The only way to avoid taking chemical bowel prep is to change your diet for a few days to a fasting mode, then give yourself a couple of enemas or go to a professional and get a lengthy colonic. This is drug free, just uses hot water to clean out the colon. But it takes several "washes" to get it clean enough for the prep, so at a professional colonic, you may be on the table for 60 to 90 minutes.
