Colonic what to expect

Common Questions and Answers about Colonic what to expect


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.
Avatar n tn Look though the posts on this page and the 2nd one, and look for the comments/answers by Morecambe. It will give you some insight into what to expect - although not specifically for a sluggish colon. The problem with a sluggish colon and only removing a part may be two things.

1704915 tn?1357601254 Your doctors are being very honest with you in telling you what to expect. If you have your colon removed you will have many bowel movements a day until your body adapts and you learn which foods affect you and which ones don't. Then you can expect up to 10 a day, but you can live a normal life. I lost my oldest son and grandson due to something unrelated but my younger son (41) is doing great without his colon.
Avatar f tn However, the rate at which my nerves were responding were to slow. That is all in information that I received. What does this mean? I am concerned with what that means in regards to my nervous system. Is there any correlation between a deficiency/disorder/condition/disease that could slow my response down and also cause bowel problems?
Avatar f tn I personally believe that the theory from your doctor is not true but it is up to you to decide what to do.
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.
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 f tn I am only 28 weeks 6 days so I am not sure what to expect at your appointment.... I have had 3 ultrasounds , the first was at 14 weeks to figure out my EDD and then one at 22 weeks for the anatomy scan , and due the baby's positioning they couldn't get all their measurements so I had to have my third one at 27 weeks.... I think most people only have 2 unless there are problems.... my mum went her last 2 pregnancies not having a single one.
Avatar m tn Turns out other than my LDL being at 134, these are the only things that are off... I am relieved, yet unsure on what to expect. Doc also has put me on the elimination diet to deal with some minor GI issues and overall wellbeing, as she thinks I may be sensitive to dairy and gluten. I was prescribed 50 MCG of Levothyroxine, and it is only day 4. At this point I feel it is a waiting game to see how the meds react to my individual situation.
Avatar f tn I have been taking 3 Percocet 5/325 for about a year after a bad car wreck in which I fractured my patella in 3 places. As a result I have had 3 knee surgeries. It has been a tough road! I am now walking again and back to work finally! I haven't had a pill since yday morning because I ran out. I don't want to get anymore because I know eventually I will have to get off of them. I slept good last nite and seem to be doing good this morn.

Avatar f tn I would like to be able to know what is causing this to happen to me so I could at least try to do something to make things better.
Avatar m tn Sorry to hear that your father isn't doing well. ESLD is a tough road for both patient and family. And just a GP doctor isn't enough to deal with the complications that come with it. Is it possible for you to get a hepatologist assigned to him? Or, at the very least, a good gastroenterologist? And, is a transplant possible if his health gets better? Ascites will need to be controlled, one way or another, to maintain a quality of life.
