568565 tn?1216785185 I am 37 yrs old. No history of colon cancer in the fam... However, recently one of my employee's husband went on a routine check up. They said since he is 47 he should have a colonoscopy... When he was done with that, he is now doing radiation and chemo... He has full blown cancer all over his pelvis... My gp advised with no history in my family, I am good to wait until I am 50 but if I did have a history of it, she'd recommend that I did it when I was 40...
Avatar n tn Can you develop Colonic Inertia from having a surgery gone wrong??? Is it possible that the surgeon may have cut or gone to close to the bowel?? Why would all of a sudden your colon features sigmoid that is sharply angulated and your gatro doc has a hard time getting a scope in you for a colonoscopy?? Do you trust colon cleansing and what products if it takes you now almost 1 week to move your bowels????
Avatar m tn Welcome to the gastroenterology community! I would not recommend researching "what can go wrong in a colonoscopy." Yes, things do go wrong, but in over 99% of the cases, everything is fine. I (and most other people) will tell you that the worse part of a colonoscopy is the prep because it tastes bad and because you have to spend all day having diarrhea. I had a colonoscopy at 16 and I was totally fine. Do you know what type of sedation you are going to get?
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 ve been having severe constipation, severe adominal pain, and nausea. I did a colonoscopy back in March. They found ulcers in my duodenum. I don't take any ibprofen. But they didn't get through my colon completely. I had another colonoscopy and endoscopy several months later since my medications weren't working. The ulcers were gone, they found out I had extra length to my colon, and found inflammation in my ilium. They think the length of the colon is why I'm comstipated.

Avatar f tn Had colonoscopy in January. Came home & started having severe back pain. Began collapsing. My entire pelvic girdle is in pain. Bladder pain, lower back, inner thighs, hips. I know something went wrong. About 2 wks later; had diverticulitis. Never had it before. My bowels are all messed up now. I cannot figure it out. My doctors are not doing ANYTHING! I don't even know if it's a gastroenterology or a urologist/gyno problem. As in a Pelvic Floor or Interstitial Cystitis.
Avatar f tn So I've haven't been diagnosed with ibs, I don't have insurance bc I'm sort of self employed. Anyway I've had bllod work and an ultra sound, everything is normal. I'm scheduled to have a colonoscopy, but if its just going to come back with nothing wrong I can't justify spending the money. I'm a single mom and in a very tough situation. After research I've done I'm almost certain I have ibs. What do I do? And how do I handle this?
Avatar m tn I was checked for hemorrhoids.
Avatar m tn As the puking feeling increased, I passed out. When I woke up, the feeling was mostly gone and I just felt dizzy and confused. Since then, I have felt dizzy, light headed and my stomach hurts on a pretty constant basis. The only thing that makes me feel better is when I make myself burp. Its usually when Im at school or around meal times. My doctor thought it was heart related and so I was sent to a cardiologist who said I had syncope which is why I passed out.
Avatar n tn I recently underwent my first baseline colonoscopy. I was lightly sedated, but apparently I was a bit resistant to the scope entering any further than the first few inches of my rectum. It was reported that this was sufficient to determine all was well and it was also recommended I come back again in approximately five years. Do I just need to have more sedation next time or could I have a stenosis that caused me to subconsciously be resistive and uncomfortable. Should I be concerned?
