Colonoscopy endometriosis

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy endometriosis


Avatar f tn Since I had my period now and am anxious to get the colonoscopy, I started googling to see if having menstruation during a colonoscopy is a problem and started coming up with information indicating my bleeding may be caused by intestinal endometriosis. As a teenager I had VIOLENT reactions to getting my period -- including vomiting diarrhea constipation hot/chills near fainting etc. I also have a family history of uterine cancer.
987242 tn?1335490770 Yeahhh. If you've got endo on your bowels, it is very common for it to cause constipation or diarrhea, bloating and gas. All sorts of GIT upset. I have stage III endo, with the worst of it being down the bottom of my bowels, and I get the WORST gas, very painful, and a lot of it. I've tried changing my diet heaps, I've even had a colonoscopy and 2 gastrocopies. My gyno almost laughed when I told him I had those procedures, he said it's definately my endo.
Avatar f tn m 51 and have been having pain in my left ovary area for 3 months - I have had a vaginal ultrasound and 2 ct scans and nothing turns up - my gyno doctor told me the pain could be gastro related however I have had a colonscopy in April and they did a ct scan and nothing turned up - I have been noticing the pain seems to start with ovulation (very painful for 2-3 days) and then let up - gets worse during my period - could this be endometriosis?
987242 tn?1335490770 They feel it is endometriosis, though cancer can present the same way. I honestly believe it is endometriosis, but cancer being mentioned is always scary. So my question is, if it was cancer wouldn't they see signs in my blood work or the biopsy that was taken? Shouldn't that rule cancer out? It bothers me that they even mentioned it.
Avatar n tn I have had bloody diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal pain. My GI doc says I have an unknown of colitis, it has been slowly getting worse, then he said I was lactose intolerant, and then he said I was gluten intolerant. So fair nothing has worked. I have had a colonoscopy, EGD, 2 CT's, a small bowel series, and sonograms done along with blood work and he still has found nothing. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with me.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced the same thing or similar symptoms and has anyone with endometriosis had their endometriosis come back after surgery? If this is not a gynaecological issue, does it sound like it could be a GI issue, such as with the colon? Any experiences? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Pe***** said I probably should have surgery with a general surgeon to remove the adhesions and endometriosis. Dr. Bl*** did a colonoscopy and said that she wouldn’t do the surgery to remove the adheasions until I was a year out from surgery. Last week I started having pain again and bleeding in my stools. I went to O***** **** regional where they thought I may have a intestinal infection. I was put on 2 different antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I went to my gastro doctor and he said it was probably hemmoroids. He did a colonoscopy and confirmed that I had internal hemmoroids. But I was still concerned about the missed period, pregnancy tests came back negative, blood hormone tests came back negative. Infact all my blood work was normal. I talked to the nurse at my gyn dr's. And told her about my symptoms, she said that the missed period was probably peri menapause related.
Avatar n tn I've always had painful periods and lower back pain, I've been told I have 2 endrometrius cysts on my right ovary and can have it removed. I tried natural cures, but it's getting worse...I don't want surgery. Is there anyway to shrink them? Could it be something else causing THIS MUCH pain? (10 out of 10) for 2 "little" cysts. Are there tests I should ask for? I'm also scheduled for a colonoscopy and upper GI in 1 1/2 months...
Avatar n tn I just had a bad experience with a colonoscopy. I remember the pain quite well in spite of a huge dose of Versed (8 mg) along with 50 mg. of Benedryl, and 100 mcg. of Fentanyl. I am overweight, but not obese. A pediatric scope was used. I have endometriosis with obliteration of the cul-de-sac and 3 ovarian cysts that were not removed during laparoscopy because they were so inaccessible (10 weeks ago).
Avatar f tn I said I have thought my symptoms were related to endometriosis because it hurts to poop or sit down fast like a knife in my butt and I have really sharp pains before my period mostly. My pelvic exam was completely normal and painless besides the pop smear. I also had a rectal exam which was normal and painless. She scheduled me to have a pelvic and transvaginal ultrasound in a couple days but my exam was completely normal. Is this possible for endometriosis?
Avatar m tn Many colonoscopy etc I had to fisures removed and the dull pain still present. What to do you recommend I do next. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Digestive-Disorders---Gastroenterology/Rectal-pain/show/234534">Rectal pain</a>.
Avatar f tn Please get that colonoscopy. If colon cancer runs in your family you need to get a colonoscopy regardless of having any symptoms even if you are only 31.
Avatar f tn I'm glad you had colonoscopy and gastroscopy. Did they rule out Celiac disease? Have you had blood tests for that? Do you have any other symptoms? Do you have constipation? Hard to pass stools?
Avatar f tn For the last 4 months I have had pain on the left side of my stomach down to my pelvic area, a nagging pain sometimes dull or sharp near and around the belly button, also consistant bloating that will not go away in a circle around the belly button. Had endometriosis removed, symptoms still came back I don't think it was the endo causing this. I don't know what to do anymore, I feel like my doctors gave up on me. Could it be ovarian cancer?
Avatar f tn one year ago I had a laparotomy to remove a large 14 cm ovarian cyst and ovary. I developed chronic pelvic pain after that and was diagnosed with Endometriosis (by a new doctor) after exploratory surgery. I have been on Lupron to treat, but am discontinuing it because of side effects and it did not work for me. A majority of my pain has been bowel related. On to my issue: A couple of weeks ago, I thought my endo was getting worse and I had more pain, pressure and bowel problems.
Avatar f tn My list of symptoms: Abdominal cramping Bloating Diarrhea, at least once a week Softer/looser stool multiple times a week Floating stool 5 out of 7 days Very gassy in mornings Built up gas throughout day Bloating Occasional nausea after eating Food not completely digested in stools Sometimes I eat and have to have a BM within 10 minutes of finishing food This one is embarrassing, but during sex I have pain in my abdomen region Dull pain under rib cage semi close to bellybutton Sharp pain in righ
Avatar f tn If the cause is not obvious from a physical examination, you may wish to request a colonoscopy and endoscopy which can both be carried out at the same time.
Avatar f tn There are various possibilities like uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, irritable bowel as well as endometriosis both uterine and extra uterine. In your case it’s quite possible that you have an irritable bowel syndrome. I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system) once. Hope this helps. Do discuss this also with your gynecologist and get yourself examined.
Avatar f tn spotting between periods (2 years) shorter cycle (21 days) and heavier longer periods (since April) loose stools, diarrhea, gas, nausea, bloating (all the time, but most severe in March and sometimes worse during menses) no appetite, weight loss, (in March, these syptoms have improved) pelvic and low back pain, pressure to bladder and rectum, night sweats (worsen during and after menses) Occassional involuntary rigidity (lower left quadrant) And (may or may not be asssociated) right shoulde
Avatar f tn The gastroenterologist had me take a colonoscopy, but nothing was found. Through the gastroenterologist, I found out I was lactose intolerant; however, that still did not really help reduce the pain I was in. Finally, the internal medicine doctor said he believed I had endometriosis and he put me on a medium/high prescription of birth control. When I was on the birth control, it DEFINITELY reduced the pain I was in.
Avatar f tn I have decided not to have the lap procedure done for my endometriosis symptoms, until now. I need to get a second opinion since my OBGYN seems to think my only option is a total hysterectomy. Due to my current issues, I am seeing a GI doctor and will have another colonoscopy done. Please help me find another option! I live in St. Louis, MO.
Avatar f tn I am 28 and was diagnosed with Endometriosis seven years ago and have had one Laparoscopy (seven years ago). Recently a new problem has cropped up that is worrying me slightly. During the week prior to my period starting, I have been finding a substantial amount of bright red blood on the toilet paper, after having a bowel movement. I brought this to my gynae''s attention during my last visit, he said that he could see no reason for this on my internal scan.
Avatar n tn I have been having the following symptoms now for several months; bloating to the point where I look 4 months pregnant and can't button my pants, feeling of fullness, nausea, constipation, severe pelvic and rectal pain during periods. First CA 125 a year ago was at 2; 2nd one 6 months ago was at 22; last weeks was at 40. Rectal pain is so severe during periods that I've passed out several times.
