Colonoscopy gallbladder

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy gallbladder


Avatar n tn Had my gallbladder out last November. Ever since, I have periods of extreme diarrhea. I take immodium almost everyday. Then, I go through periods of constipation. Its a never ending circle. I had a colonoscopy on Monday of this week. Doctor said everything looks fine, no signs of disease. He did take a few biopsies just because. I have had pain in my lower and upper abdomen as well as bad spasms in my lower back since then. Is this normal? Also, what can I do about the gallbladder problem.
Avatar f tn A colonoscopy looks for so many different things which is why they want you to get a colonoscopy. I could list all of the things that the doctor could be looking for in the colonoscopy but it would be a very long list. However, I would recommend getting other less invasive testing done first in case the problem can be found that way. This would include blood tests and stool tests. I would recommend asking to see the doctor first to discuss what tests you want.
Avatar f tn The colonoscopy might show something, but it probably won't. However a colonoscopy is a good idea to make sure nothing more serious is going on. Have you tried making dietary and lifestyle changes?
Avatar n tn Brief Background: 29 years of age! Had colonoscopy 13 months ago because I had blood in the stools. Findings were absolutely nothing, just a case of internal hemorrhoids. However, I am now experiencing upper abdominal discomfort right in the middle of stomach. I usually have a bowel movement once a day but it tends to be hard and when I am through I don't feel as if the bowel has been completely emptied. Lots of white mucus in almost every bowel movement.
Avatar m tn My husband had a gallbladder remove eight years ago since then he always had a lot of diarrhea, the doctor perform a colonoscopy but everything went normal he said he always going to have a cronic diarrhea but a few months ago it get worse now with pain and bleeding doctor practice scan ,blood test but they can find nothing wrong he lost weight and he feel down no energy most of the time what can I do to help what other test he needs
Avatar n tn The doctors don't know why it is elevated. I only drink once a week. I've seen a GI specialist in the past 2 months. I had colonoscopy-normal, endoscopy-showed gastritis in prox stomach and antrum. Ultrasound-normal (no gallstones). HIDAScan-37% ejection fraction, "normal." Lately the pain has been getting worse under my right rib...although I have the constant aching pain, I get stabbing pains after I eat.
Avatar f tn I went through all kinds of tests including EGD, colonoscopy, HIDA scan and one just a month ago to check for hiatal hernia. All the tests are coming back normal. (Both of my grandmothers had their gallbladder removed with the same symptoms) I now am having sharp pains under my breast bone in between my rib cage. It hurts sometimes so bad that it drops me to my knees. When the pain goes away the spot is still very tender to the touch.
Avatar f tn You should have had an ultrasound of your upper abdomen instead of a CT scan because the CT has a lot of radiation. An ultrasound can check your liver, pancreas, gallbladder, all without radiation. If your HIDA scan wasn't with CCK, it wouldn't help show if your gallbladder stopped working or not. Have you been tested for Celiac disease? Did they do an upper or just lower endoscopy?
Avatar n tn my question is this, in january i had gallbladder surgery, when I came to it felt like my stomache wanted to burst, beneath my sturnam, at first iI thought it was due to the surgery but it stayed this way for the first 2 months. If i ate i just felt stuffed. The doctor said he had to splice my bile duct to get a stone out so I thought possibly this was it. With this I still feel constiated and get nauseated, When it is real bad my heart feels like it is thuding in there.
Avatar m tn By doing ultrasound in Jan 2010, I found 2 polyps in gallbladder, size 3.5 and 3.8 mm. I did a second ultrasound in March 2010 with the same results. The u/s diagnosis does not include gallstones (I wonder if there is any possibility for mistake). My general blood tests look OK. I think I have no symptoms (I am not 100% sure about this, because I have some mild not specific pains in mostly the right abdomen and right side).
Avatar f tn Once every two weeks or so I would either throw up or have severe nausea. If I threw up the symptoms disappeared for about a week. GI sent me for a Colonoscopy and EGD. After these tests were run the gas was still an issue but the corpse like smell disappeared. First bowel movement after the test was partially white. After that they returned to normal color and the frequency changed from once every 5 days and greasy to 2 - 3 times a day and extremely constipated.
Avatar f tn It can get so bad and last for several hours a day or just for a few minutes after the meal. I recently underwent a colonoscopy and endoscopy which I was negative for celiacs and chrons; however I do still watch what I eat because food is still a major contributor to my pain. I don't usually have nuseau, just typically throbbing and sometimes cold sweats. My doctor has recently said IBS and put me on Linzess and abdominal pain relief medicine.
Avatar f tn Hi; My question would be I have had my colonoscopy and upperscope performed .The gastrologist saw inflamation in the small intestine and in the stomach..The biobsy came back gastritis and non-specific non ulcerative colitis..I have also had joint pains ,,Blood workup and stool cultures show high sed rate and postive ASCA and neg atypical Panca.. Does this diagnosis seem accurate? Ps i also have an e-coli vaginal infection that doesn't seem to clear up?
Avatar m tn I had that type of pain when my gallbladder was inflamed. Have you had a HIDA scan or endoscopy? They could help rule out some things, then think about a colonoscopy?
Avatar f tn something basically damaged nerves in the stomach caused by having a bad stomach bug and that the nerves will heal themselves over time. In addditon i have had many tests; colonoscopy, endoscopy, ultra sound, and blood tests, all of those came back normal. Over the weekend I had a CCK cat scan. These results were just borderline. My CCK results were 34 1/2 % and normal range is 35% and above. My doctor suggested a second opinion and consideration of removal.
Avatar n tn 07 and have had a Cat Scan,Colonoscopy,and Upper GI and all were normal except for an internal hemmorrid found during the colonoscopy. Blood test for Celiac disease was negative and was tests for H-Pylori. I do have Reflux disease and am on Aciphex for that and it seems to help. I have recurrent upper right and left side abdominal pain, nausea, altered bowel movements(more constipation lately than the Big D).
Avatar n tn she had an ultrasound done today and it shows she has eight spots on her liver. she has been having problems with her gallbladder,kidneys,overies and bladder. she also gets infection after infection which has also started to show on her skin.her blood tests would not show anything do to the fact prednisone masks the infections. im really worried about her . what should we do doc?
Avatar n tn and was told I had diverticulitis and hernia, which I do not except for a small hiatal hernia and then told after an EGD and colonoscopy that I had gastritis and a colon polyp and all along I figured it must be my gallbladder. I guess I have a bile duct obstruction. The only person that has given me an accurate diagnosis is the nuclear medicine tech and now i have to go back again because the doctor only ordered a HIDA scan an no ejection fraction.
Avatar f tn my colonoscopy came back normal anyones advise would be helpful
Avatar n tn I was never nauseous -- I just had major pain in the gallbladder and abdominal areas. This went on for about 6 weeks. Things took a turn for the worse on Wednesday night, when I was nauseous for the first time. I was dizzy, vomiting, and I felt like I was going to pass out. The next day I had a lot of pain in the gallbladder/abdominal/liver area, even though I ate nothing fatty. I went to urgent care, where they did urine and blood tests.
Avatar f tn I noticed that there had been a couple of questions about hyperactive gallbladder. I am curious in my case as well. I have had immense pain since March of 2011 in my abdomen, mainly the upper right quadrant. I began going to my PCP and she ordered an ultra sound which came back negative for stones. I then went in for a hida scan and found my gallbladder ejection fraction was 98%. I had the pain but it was intensified with the test.
471161 tn?1317194550 I am having both the Endoscopy and a Colonoscopy done and I am not worried because I know I will be completely out but I am worried about the day before when I have to take the pills and drink all the junk. The paperwork the doctor gave me talks about nausea and he gave me an Rx for several medications I have to take and or drink plus one for nausea. I get sick to my stomach very easy. I know drinking all this stuff is done for the Colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn a negative ERCP in 2006.Also Neg Egd,. Recent neg Abd CAT scan., Neg colonoscopy .,Neg small bowel.Neg US of abdomen (with exception of small Gb polyp near the neck). Recenty the pain has become more severe in my front ribs & on each side right & left & in my back when I eat anytime up to 2 hrs after.I have been managing this with a low fat diet since 2006 but it now has become 'intolerable'.
Avatar m tn I had so much bloating that I looked (and still do) pregnant after eating, my stomach gets hard under the sternum and I get woken up at night with palpitations which is relieved after burping. I had endoscopy, colonoscopy, abdominal US, abdominal CAT scan w/o contrast, abdominal MRI with contrast, and a HIDA scan in 2007, all normal. Now I am experiencing these symptoms all the time with no breaks in between and additionally I feel faint from the pressure in my abdomen.
Avatar m tn Yep, I had a colonoscopy on June 30, 2003 (yep, I remember the exact day...hahah!) At the time, I was having over 20,000 PVCs/day and was dealing with cardiomyopathy. Like you guys, I thought...this is it! I'm going tach-out during a colonscopy!! I was so nervous! My first ablation wasn't until August of that year, so because I was so worried, I set up an appointment to meet with the doctor who was going to do the colonscopy! He couldn't understand my fear (I didn't care!!).
Avatar f tn which is my only vice. I have my colonoscopy scheduled for the 19th of December and doctor wants to run a tube down my esophagus to see what else is going on in there right after that; should I do that test before the colonoscopy? What else could it be and should I be doing anything else? I also had an abdominal ultrasound done last week and everything turned out normal. I carry arounf 40-50 pounds of stenographer equipment everyday, so just wondering if I could have ruptured something.
Avatar f tn I've posted before. My colonoscopy went well and my large bowel is in perfect condition. But I still have nausea and diarrhea. I've been sick for six months and I'm 55. Antacid meds constipate me. Bulking agents don't change anything. Yogurt probiotics help, but I'm still sick. An antibiotic didn't help. Let me describe my diarrhea, so maybe someone will relate and can help me.
Avatar n tn I've written before. 58 years, female, 4 years ago, pain, fever, bleeding, hospitalized 3 days. Colonoscopy showed non-specific colitis. Further colonoscopy showed "mild chronic inflammation, nonspecific, no evidence active colitis, no evidence of dysplasia or malig." Two years ago epigastric pain, leading to manometric diagnosis of poor esoph. peristalsis. pH was normal.
Avatar n tn (Not gallstones but a thickening of the the wall and some liquid) The pain finally subsided and they are telling me it was a gallbladder attack (which I never had before) but they tell me it's not from the colonoscopy. I was wondering if anyone else had gallbladder problems after their procedure. They say the prep could have brought it on but not the procedure. Curious to hear from anyone who could shed some light on this for me.
