Avatar f tn Colonic diverticulosis, and there is a bowel loop medial to the cecum which has.a slightly thickened wall. This is probably the terminal ileum and is incompletely distended. Also a few mildly prominent mesenteric lymph nodes. And atelectasis in the right lung. Could.this mean cancer?
488192 tn?1208990289 i went to the dr and he said i have thickening around the colon and inflmmation to i had blood test done it also should inflammation im going for a colonoscopy to see what is going on just wonring if that means you can have colon cancer with the thickening of the colon. me help ginger This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/231072'>thickening of colon lumen</a>.
Avatar f tn there is persistent mild thickening of the wall of the mid to distal descending colon, uncertain whether it is secondary to true colonic wall thickening versus secondary to incomplete distention. the pericolonic inflammatory changes noted on prior study has resolved. the sigmoid colon is well-distensible and redundant. the bladder is unremarkable. there are small inguinal lymph nodes. there is no free fluid." to this ct scan my husbands PCP did not recomment a colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn FINDINGS: Focal area of bowel wall thickening in the ascending colon (series 2 image 50) could be physiologic, although colonic neoplasm cannot be excluded from this appearance. This finding was not present on the previous exam. A mildly enlarged and several mildly prominent mesenteric lymph nodes are noted in the right lower quadrant, which have increased slightly in size since the previous exam.
Avatar f tn I recently had a CT Scan done when i went to the ER for increasingly worsening rectal bleeding. It says I have cmildhest Base: mild wall thickening of the distal esophagus & a hiatal hernia Liver: liver is at the upper limits of normal and has diffuse fatty infiltrative changes GI Track: small amount retained stool in colonic loops. Appendix visualized, mostly prominent measuring 0.6 cm in size.
Avatar n tn Dec, 2008, CT with triple contrast, shows Bowel wall thickening with evidence of inflammatory changes in the sigmoid mesocolon. Evidence of mild fatty haziness, and multiple enlarged lymph nodes in the mesocolon. No evidence of abscess formation at this time. Only recommendation from the Radiologist back to GI Spec was for interval endoluminal evaluation. CT 1 year prior was very similar but with no finding of enlarged lymph nodes.

Avatar f tn Jewel, there are a number of papers that suggest that gastric wall thickening can be a normal finding. However, as you know wall thickening can also be caused due to more serious problems. In this case, although I hate to say it, I think the only way to know would be via a biopsy of the involved areas of the stomach. Any other way of finding out would be pure guess-work.

390388 tn?1279636213 The endometrial cavity is irregular showing some areas of focal thickening with fluid. The fundal portion shows more irregular cahnges of the endometrial cavity. This is nonespecific and because of the patients' age again correlation with an ultrasound of the pelvis is advised for further evaluation. 7. The appendix is visualized and is normal and there is no evidence of colonic obstruction. 8. There is some nonspecific distention of the duodenal sweep which is fluid filled.
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?
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 f tn hi, i have resently been diagnosed with colonic inertia. i had the sitz mark test and my colon still had all of rings in at the end of the test. now my gastro is sending me to a colonectomy surgeon this thursday. my biggest fear is i do not want to have a colostomy. i have had a constipation problem all my life but its getting worse. my gastro dr. told me the older i get the worse this is going to get. i need help from anyone who is going through this and what i can expect.
Avatar f tn Hi, all. I've been suffering for as long as I can remember, quite literally. From a young age (around 8) I've had vasovagal syncope episodes, constant diarrhea, chest pains, lack of appetite, and I've always been of short stature and very slim. Those symptoms, minus the syncope, we're fairly mild back then and my GP I guess thought my fainting was completely normal (at least 1 episode of complete unconsciouness a year, not including close calls).
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.
