Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy biopsies


Avatar m tn The biopsies are to confirm that there is no cancer.
1322367 tn?1274808624 He also took 3 colon biopsies during the colonoscopy. 2 bioposies during the UGI (1) esophugus and (1) duodenum. He said that I had bumps (rough looking) on the bottom of my stomach and a small hiatial hernia. I have been experiencing mild to moderate upper right abdominal pain for several months now. No bleeding and all blood tests normal. CAT scan of the lower right abdomen was also normal. I have some concerns due to the fact that so many biopsies were taken.
1140169 tn?1370185076 The standard procedure differs in different parts of the world and with different doctors, but at least where I am, biopsies are almost always taken during an endoscopy/colonoscopy. They will take extra biopsies if anything looks abnormal. It is also normal to have to wait that long to get the results back.
Avatar n tn I just had a colonoscopy and a small bowel follow through done. Colonoscopy was normal with the exception of a polyp being removed that the dr sent away to be checked. Today I get a call that the small bowel follow through came back normal but that my biopsies were abnormal showing inflammation. Blood work has shown I have a Vitamin B-12, Vitamin D and Potassium defiency.
203342 tn?1328737207 I had a colonoscopy this morning. Everything went well but I did have some inflamation in the same area I've had in the past so he did a biopsy. The two times I've gone to the bathroom since I noticed blood in the bottom of the toilet, which surprised me because I've had colonoscopies before with biopsies and a polyp removed in the past and don't remember bleeding.
Avatar f tn Is it possible this could be microscopic colitis that is being missed? No biopsies were taken during this recent colonoscopy and from what I’ve read although microscopic colitis can present with constipation, indications for tests are usually chronic diarrhoea - in which case no-one is looking. I feel so demoralised and frustrated. I am taking stool softeners and that helps but I still get pain. My life is much reduced by not knowing if I’m going to be up to doing things any day.
1580703 tn?1651904887 I had a colonoscopy/flex sig done recently and the biopsies were negative. I read though there is a ulcerative colitis which isn't diagnosed by biopsies? thanks!
Avatar m tn My doc didn't really go into the details of my procedure, but she took 42 biopsies and I called the hospital for my results. All I was told was that I had Celiacs. I just would like to know what a few things on this report mean. I will not put down everything thats normal, just the things I'm curious about. :-) Duodenum Biopsies: Increased Intraepithelia lymphocytes There are increased intraepithelial lymphocytes. The architecture is otherwise unremarkable.
Avatar f tn I had incomplete colonoscopy 10 days ago and now cannot go, not actually constipated as stools are very soft but the urge to go is not followed through. Low grade stomach ache. Before colonoscopy, I had diarrhea. No results yet apart from diagnosing first grade haemorrhoids (which explains red blood). Fast tracked on the 2 week cancer investigation, CT scan, bloods and faecal stool tests. Still had no results.
Avatar n tn i had a colonoscopy in jan. 2012. now i find myself waiting on biopsies on 3 more that they removed last week dec 2012. I would like to know do these grow that fast and this time it was not a full colonoscopy. could these 3 grow within a year or could they have missed them.
Avatar f tn Sometimes it takes several biopsies and tests to confirm their suspicions. I too just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy and it seems to confirm Crohns. I have inflamation throughout, ulcers in my terminal ileum (which is where Crohns usually is the most evident) and Gastritis in my stomach. I don't know why it's so hard to diagnose Crohns. I've heard of it taking years for people to get a proper diagnosis. Did he prescribe any medication for the inflamation?
Avatar f tn it is now 10days since I had a colonoscopy and removal of a polyp.there was also some inflammation that the specialist said would go away he took biopsies and the polyp There is red blood inside the stools and on the bathroom tissue ever since the colonoscopy,why is this happening When will there be a return to normal This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/534114'>painful colonoscopy</a>.
Avatar f tn i had severe diverticulitis last November, with 7 day hospital stay. Things haven't felt right since. Infection gone but after colonoscopy last week, Gi doc says he couldn't get past recto sigmoid junction, so virtual colonoscopy next week. All of my other colonoscopies have been fine . Biopsies done . All normal. I have bladder discomfort and back pain. I'm assuming I now have adhesions. Have had hysterectomy in 2007 and further prolapse surgery in 2015.
Avatar f tn My Dad has colitis and I have now developed some symptoms of colitis. I had a colonoscopy and my doctor said he thought he saw some colitis. Well the nurse called back today to say my biopsies were normal. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow. My question is could I have mild unlcertive colitis but have it not show up in my biopsies?
Avatar n tn I am 46 year old female. In January I had the flu (vomiting, diarhrea, chills, low grade fever). Then in February, same symptons. I went to my family practioner who thought I had diverticulosis. He ordered cat scan. It showed I have thickening of colon and mentioned jejuneum. He sent me to gastroenterologist who thought I had Crohn's disease, but performed upper endoscopy and colonsocopy the same day. He no longer thinks I have Crohn's disease.
Avatar n tn I had a colonoscopy due to my U.C. I have been dealing with for 13 years now, but my doctor took 60 biopsies, this seems abnormal and really frickin scary! Is it normal to take that many?
Avatar m tn Hi, I had a colonoscopy a few weeks ago . I have had part of my colon removed and have short bowel syderum . He found 6 ulcers which he removed and he sent to a lab. The biopsies came out normal he said. I was wondering what could cause these ulcers ? I have Diarrhea too. Could you take a look at the pictures that I've attached to this message please. He is putting me on Questran for my diarrhea.
987242 tn?1335490770 Okay I just got back from the GI doctor and he is scheduling me for a colonoscopy. He believes I have colitis of some sort and feels this will find the answers. My question is, could it be colitis and the colonoscopy not show anything? I've had issues for years and nothing was ever found in the colonoscopies, so why would something show now? I am happy and nervous at the same time. Glad to possibly have answers, but worried it will be another dead end.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy today due to a swollen colon and persistent diarrhea for 6months. He took biopsies But said he didn't find anything wrong. He also said he'll be sending people to my home for tests. He didn't say what kind of tests, just that they get sent to California. What kind of tests could they be?
Avatar f tn ve had every test imaginable- colonoscopy with biopsies, IBD blood test, full blood panel, and two fecal tests. Is there anything else I can do to rule out Crohns? The only symptoms I have are frequent farting and slightly above average but normal looking poops (2-3 times per day).
Avatar m tn Did they take any biopsies during the previous colonoscopy? Not the occasional polp, actual random samples of the colon wall? They need to do this if there is a deep suspicion of the presence of an IBD in an apparently normal individual. Just something to keep in mind if they decide to do another colonoscopy in the future.
Avatar f tn m open to a professor in the gastroenterology clinic who has taken bloods, a stool sample, barium Scan and colonoscopy. The bloods show increased white blood cells, stool showed inflammation and the colonoscopy (last week) showed an oedematous ileum. The biopsies have come back as normal however. Does the negative biopsies rule out Crohns? Any advice would be great.
Avatar n tn He might want to consider getting a colonoscopy. I lot of people think their pain is in their stomach when it is really in their intestines.
Avatar f tn Your getting a colonoscopy? If thats what ur having done, Ive had 3 colonoscopies total just not during pregnancy. I was put under so didnt feel anything. The prep for it was very nasty though lol. Ur going to be awake? Whats the rsason?
567392 tn?1216751526 I had an endoscopy and colonoscopy because my doctors were concerned that I might have stomach cancer. Afterwards I learned that there weren't any signs of cancer, but they did find some bruising on the lining of my stomach. What does that mean?
568261 tn?1250270162 I am 42 and have tried to get my GP to schedule a colonoscopy for me.(only been going to her for 2 yrs.) She was very hesistant. Finally after 2 months she called and said they would send my name to the surgeon and they would have to schedule it. Well its been over a month now and no word.
