Colonoscopy blockage

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy blockage


Avatar m tn Have they checked him for any blockage? Maybe he should get a colonoscopy and see if there is any problem going on. If that is negative then it may be diet related. If it is diet related maybe he needs to cut way back on meat and eat more of a whole plant based diet with whole grains and veggies. Eat less and more often with small portions. Read the Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall. Also, low fat. But it sound like it could be a blockage of some sort.
Avatar n tn ultra sound showed no blockage in liver or gallbladder, colonoscopy and endoscopy found polyp in colon and polyps in stomach... i hav eupper right quadrant pain.. lost 20 pounds. non hepatitis c and b both test non reactive. can anyone please help me?
Avatar f tn i had a colonoscopy the other day. the dr went around the first 'bend', but couldn't push thru any further. he said that he didn't want to push any further because he didn't want to 'tear' anything. he was being very vague about why it was blocked. i am not having any pain and my BMs are normal. i thought there was a scope on the end of these things so you can see what you are looking at. why couldn't he tell me what the blockage was?
978488 tn?1295468883 I also read on Internet that if you have that the ultra sound will show lots of gas above the obstruction area on the ultrasound. Could it be endomitriosis causing the blockage if it is one ? I also should tell you that I have had blood in my stool for over a year now. Waiting to see a gastro dr soon. Any ideas what this is ? These episodes come out of nowhere and are so bad that I feel like dying when they come on it is so scary. Please if you have any ideas??
Avatar n tn ve had a zillion tests, barium enema, CT with contrast, upper gi, colonoscopy, endoscopy, sitz markert test(which showed how slow things were). So my question is, Is there a test that can show if there is a partial blockage on the inside of my small intestine where those scopes can't reach? The other night in the ER I was in doubled over pain for 6 hours and then I was fine. So I believe the backed up food finally went through.
527589 tn?1301678178 I had a colonoscopy friday morning. It says on the report they gave me that I had numerous polyps, one 18 mm in size, that thye removed. Also it says I didn't tolerate the procedure well (I remember moaning and groaning and begging them to stop)as my bowel was twisted. I slept most of friday and into saturday. I noticed this morning that I was very sore just above and to the right of my belly button. Also below and to the left.
1702615 tn?1421812248 had new blood work ordered, still presenting with clay color stool and upper ab pain, waiting on new GI to do a colonoscopy but symptoms still look like some kind of blockage of my bile. And the mrcp shows 10 mm dilation with possible minimal irregularily in my intrahepatic ducts. why is my bood work normal yet I am so sick????? and not yellow, so doc doesn't think there is a block I REALLY thought he would have done an ERCP last week.
Avatar f tn J pouch so I know what blockages feel like and this felt like either complete or partial blockage. Nonetheless after 3 or 4 hrs of being on IV fluid, dry heaving and pain meds, they ran a ct scan. When the Dr. came to me they asked me "Have you been shot"? I said no. Ten minutes later they asked me if I had a pill camera done Recently? AHA! I had a pill camera but not recently...7 months before! Was it possible this camera was lodged in a stricture and noone, not even Dr.
Avatar f tn he went to the dr and had a colonoscopy. The colonoscopy showed no polyps..the only thing it showed was a hemorrhoid. He had another episode last nite with the stomach pain and rectal bleeding. He is fine this morning. He says that it fills like the blood is builiding up and when he goes to the bathroom and it comes out...the stomach pain eases up...could this possibly be hemorrhoids?
Avatar n tn In January 2009 I developed severe abdominal cramping and bloating/distention. The cramping soon led to violent vomiting which sent me to the hospital ER. I was told I have probably had bowel obstruction. I was admitted to the hospital for 5 days while numerous X-ray's were taken of my abdomen. Before the doctors could find the blockage it had "corrected itself" according to the doctors. I was then sent home.
Avatar n tn am struggling to empty my bowels. What is it and could it be causing some sort of blockage? is it possible that it could have been in my system for years??
Avatar m tn I had to do all of this and it took a LOT to expel finally...the stool actually turned very watery and green an went around the blockage for a while - I wasn't eating due to constant vomiting so I was told this was actually bile that came out. If these meds didn't work after a week I was told I would have to have surgery. I am sharing with you what the doctors had me do and what they told me...
Avatar m tn I have been stopped up for over 2 months. I was scheduled for a colonoscopy last week and the gallon of fluid barely came through and started burning. So a barium enema was scheduled for today. No prep because it was an emergency. They did an x-ray and said I was so blocked they couldn't do anything and sent me home from the hospital to call my DR. What could this be? I'm afraid to eat now and have no idea what will happen. Am editing on a call back from the DR.
Avatar f tn I relate! COMPLETELY. I believe mine has something to do with occasional blockage. Guess we'll find out soon whats going on as I am about to schedule my colonoscopy. (fun...) Using my food diary I realized it coincides with nuts and I have cut them out completly as as of yet have not had this problem again. We'll see.
Avatar m tn Andy, what is your family history with regard to colon polyps or colon cancer? My husband, when in his forties, ignored the fact that his stool shape was slowly changing. Because his Dad had colon cancer diagnosed in his 60's, my husband's Dr suggested he get a colonoscopy before 50. So when he was about your age he got his first one and sure enough, several, one a good size, polyps were found and removed. Thankfully they had not turned cancerous yet.
Avatar n tn 5 weeks later back in hospital with accute pancritits and 3 weeks later back in with an intestinal blockage. 6 months later back in with hospital with another blockage. Became so scarred to see Dr that I would refuse to go even with pain. My regular DR put me on Ultram to help with the pain. Over the last two months I have been having pain with a vangence. Stated going back to my gastorlogist and he has performed another colonoscopy 3 one in 3 years.
Avatar m tn Does anyone else have these problem?
Avatar m tn Hi, So in the beginning of February I began experiencing bloating (I looked pregnant) indigestion, and a lot of burping. My bowel movements were sparse and pencil thin and I felt full and lost my appetite. Gas x did not help. After a couple weeks of not getting better I went to urgent care and right away he did an x ray and found my ascending colon was all backed up due to a possible impacted feces but he wasn't sure. He told me take miralax as if preparing for a colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn Hi, Mi mom's ovarian cancer was discovered 2 years ago, when she was 57. Since then, she had surgery and 2 rounds of chemo. She was doing fine until last month, when she started having serious constipation problems: no bowel movement for over 10 days. Doctors performed a colostomy with no positive results: still no movement in the following 10 days. She went for another examination, but colonoscopy could not be performed because the colon was obstructed.
Avatar n tn They are hoping I can clean myself out while I am waiting for them to set up a colonoscopy to check for blockage or narrowing of the colon.
Avatar f tn cancer, ulcerative colitis, crohns. I have to have a colonoscopy. With my symptoms what is the likely outcome? Any ideas? I do not think it is cancer, there is no history of cancer, but I know nothing about crohns or UC.
Avatar f tn In April of this year, his blood work came back (bad) is what they called it. They gave him a colonoscopy which came back non cancerous, however, the surgeon wanted to be sure and did another, again coming back clean. A week ago he had severe diarreha for 1 day and then constipated for the next 4. The Dr. sent him for a catscan which we told he had colon blockage and now liver cancer. We are told the liver cancer is in-operatable.
1168718 tn?1464983535 Hello, I am new to this part of the forum. I am on MS forum, as I have MS. I am a 52 year old female, and have been having bowel troubles of and on for years. Last year I went to the ER 5 times with the pain and vomiting..... they did a bunch of tests, cat scans, ultrasounds and such...... found nothing wrong. Then last April they did a cat scan at a different hopsital and found a 9 cm. growth on my right ovary, and small growths on the left.
778037 tn?1377986200 I was told that my colon on the right side was stretched out due to a large amount of stool. I asked if it was a blockage and the doctor said "no". The nurse gave me a dulcolax and sent me home, advising me to call my gastro doc in the AM. I did not go until this morning. It took two trips to the potty to get it out, however I got a lot out. However, the second trip resulted in blood in my stool.
Avatar f tn On the other hand, collapse of part or all of a lung may be caused by a blockage of the air passages or by pressure on the outside of the lung. Lung diseases, obstruction, and even tumors may need to be ruled out. It is best that you discuss the results with your doctor for proper diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
