Colonic treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Colonic treatment


Avatar n tn Welcome to the gastroenterology community! I don't know much about colonic pacemakers, but are you having problems with your large intestine only? If so, then I would recommend looking into large intestine removal.
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 m tn Does anyone know what i will need to prepare myself for treatment wise? Im suffering every day.. Im also on forti sips for.nutrients as my iron levels are low, and have a vitimin deficiency. Any help would be very greatly appreciated, none of the laxatives or.anything are working..
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 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.
541150 tn?1306033843 The short answer is chronic irritation. This is known to cause cancer in various body systems in animals and people (one example is skin cancer from sun exposure). Gastrointestinal disorders are among the most common problems encountered in cats. Most vomiting and diarrhea episodes occur suddenly and resolve quickly. The causes are usually such as eating an unfamiliar food. However, some cats may have vomiting and/or diarrhea over a period of weeks to months.
Avatar m tn But mostly, I cannot find where it says that Ileostomy is treatment for COLONIC INERTIA, and thhen 2-6 months later, he wants to, do full colectomy (remove entire colon) but promised if he saw impacted stool, he would remove it...first he said he'd remove the stool, then he wrote back and said, "cut out portion of impacted or necrotic stool".
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.
Avatar f tn I have suffered from chronic constipation for 3-4 years and have had no relief from any other treatment. I have had extensive tests, including a sitz marker transit (23 were still present on day 6), a defecogram, MRI, motility test, and more. I was diagnosed with slow transit and pelvic floor dysfunction. I tried biofeedback therapy, but it never showed that I have PVD.
Avatar f tn My two year old daughter was recently diagnosed with Colonic Lymphonodular hyperplasia via colonoscopy after bloody stools since July with intermittent ABD pain. She has a history of food intolerance and we thought it might be associated.The pedi gastro said she will possibly outgrow it. Last week her daily stools became more frequent ranging from 3-16 per day with significantly more frank blood. The cramping and pain has intensified waking her frequently in the night.
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 n tn i also suffer from chronic constipation. Actually, diagnosed with colonic inertia a couple of weeks ago. They also did upper scope and gastric emptying study and found that I have a lazy/slow digesting stomach. This is the cause for the bloating. Whether or not I eat. I also look like i am pregnant. My husband calls me a chia pet because it will just start growing at times. Doc put me on domperidone, experimental drug for the stomach. Supposed to "jump start" digestion.
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 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 m tn About a week ago I posted a question about colon hydrotherapy but I received no response. I had this treatment done and since then I have gone more than usual. I am scheduled for another treatment but I would like to know if this is accepted by the medical field as a safe and effective method of colon cleansing. Or some comments from others who have been through this before. Please respond.
Avatar n tn Thanks again. How is she now? Did only colonic irrigation helped her and how many sessions she underwent?
Avatar m tn Both are few tiny gray-white tissue bits D2 BIOPSY: Sections show duodenal mucosal bits with more or less maintained villous to crypt ratio. COLONIC BIOPSY: -Sections show large gut mucosal bits -There is only focal mild to modest crypt distortion -Goblet cell population is more or less maintained -Lamina shows a modest generalized lymphocytic population with focal areas -of increased density around some distorted crypts.
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.
