colon

Avatar m tn and i am nervous..but ifigure youve already had this done ..or atleast a colonoscopy to find out about the hernia?
Avatar f tn A large retrocardiac hiatal hernia is seen with the gastric fundus and at least half of the gastric body projecting above the diaphragm, protruding through the esophageal hiatus. I am scheduled for a capsule endoscopy in about 3 weeks. I suffer occassional heartburn but Dr has put we on Prilocsec which I have had no problems with since. My question is... with a hiatal hernia this large, are they going to end up doing surgery??? I am a 48 year old female, 168 pounds and 5'3"....
Avatar f tn t due to an umbilical hernia surgery I just had a colonoscopy yesterday. My pain is just left of the umbical area. This pain is worsened by activities like standing in one place for too long or sitting on a hard surface. I cannot participate in any physical sport that actively uses the core and the pain is everyday. Does not seem to be related to my diet at all. I do get "muddy" brown stools about 2-3x /day - twice a week.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the gastroenterology community! 1) Yes hernias can be missed by an MRI. 2) Yes you can actually injure the intestines themselves, but this would most likely cause you much more serious symptoms. 3) No, gas passing the area wouldn't cause pain if it were only a muscle strain. 4) I would think that the original injury is unrelated to your current symptoms. You might have an intolerance or allergy. They most likely couldn't see a hernia during a colonoscopy.
Avatar m tn Had hernia surgery after reversed colonoscopy and am still in a lot of pain almost a year later. Doctor said one of my muscles had attached itself to my hip bone. I have had four surgeries from the beginning of a perforated colon. Has anyone had anything remotely like this happen to them? I am so discouraged! Can't seem to find any help. My left side bulges out and I feel bloated most of the time. Please I need help! I am desperate!
Avatar n tn Has any one had a colonoscopy through their colostomy? Do they use the same process as a regular colonoscopy? The unknow is really getting to me.
Avatar n tn P.S. Was told I may have a hernia resulting from the diverticulitis/abcess is this possible??? I didn't know you could get a hernia from this....I was told that if it was a hernia then this could cause the pain in the left hip/groin/knee etc. but for some reason I can't seem to see the connection from the diverticulitis/abcess to hernia in colon???? please help.....
Avatar f tn ..I have had a hysterectomy , but my right ovary and cervix were left. My CT results were read twice. Because I told them I didn't have a uterus when it came up 18mm fibroid on the fundus of the uterus twice. So that was left. I have went to a gastroenterologist. Liver function test fine. Gastroenterology were wondering why I was there.But ordered at upper abdominal ultrasound. Then wanted to do a colonoscopy too.. I don't think so.
Avatar f tn About 2 months ago I started experience abdominal pain and a lump 2 inches wide by 1 inch high appeared to the left of my belly button. I've been to three doctors who have told me not to worry about it, and 1 who recomended a colonoscopy to look at it, but my insurance won't cover that. It's only mildly painful, but I don't like that I have a bulge where there should not be one.
Avatar f tn s and she was also diagnosed with GERD and a hiatal hernia, so it is possible. Have you had a colonoscopy? It is the most accurate way to diagnose if you have Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis. You might try going to a gastrointerologist to get a second opinion on your diagnosis. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Your other symptoms sure to point in the direction of a Hiatal hernia as well. You should you were checked for GERD and had a colonoscopy, did they check for a hiatal hernia? If they haven't, I sure would ask about it.
Avatar m tn I did have a colonoscopy and MRI done. The colonoscopy had shown 3 polyps that were removed. Slight hemorrhoids but the doctor said it is not enough to cause that much bleeding. There was 1 small kidney stone and again the doctor said that would not cause the bleeding like I am having. The last thing that was showing was an slight umbilical hernia. (I do see/know my belly button has always been out about 1/8 of an inch.) I am at a loss and the Doctor in Knoxville seems to have not a clue.
Avatar m tn But you could still also have a hernia, and when the doc consults with you a few days before the scheduled colonoscopy, he will check for that, and so the solution may wind up being different, perhaps surgery to repair any hernia, and they'll hold off on the colonoscopy until you get that straight. Hope it all works out for you.
Avatar f tn So to conferm my suspision, i had been having this pain for 3 weeks. now, waiting on results from a colonoscopy biopsy, still have major pain in upper left stomach rib area. pain stays constantly' i feel full, but I am not eating alot. Hurts worse if i drink cold stuff. I know what gas pain is and its not that. I have 1 child. 5 years ago I had a hystorectomy, so kinda curious about the cyst they found, going to the ob to get that checked. But in alot of pain. please help.
Avatar n tn I have had a endoscopy which showed a hiatal hernia, a colonoscopy which came out normal, an ultrasound which showed the gallbladder as normal, an upper GI which showed a hiatal hernia and a esophageal diverticulum. I having a hida scan scheduled for the end of this week. I have also been referred to a surgeon to consult with about surgery. Gallbladder disease runs in my family. Is it possible that this is my gallbladder?
Avatar f tn my husband is bleeding from his anal and it is red and he is taking gerd medicine for that and was ordered to have a colonoscopy and endrocopy and he can has pain in his growing when we are trying to have sex is this connected ?
Avatar f tn I have a very large hiatal hernia that does not cause any problems such as Gerd, reflux, etc. but I did experience a loss of four units of blood over a period of nine months in 2007and after a blood transfusion did not lose blood again until recently when hemo went from 14.5 down to 9.9 in three months. A colonoscopy and endoscopy in 2007 did not reveal any reason for the blood loss.
1322367 tn?1274808624 Had colonoscopy and upper gi today. The doctor removed 2 polyps. 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.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy a few months ago and everything was fine. If I did have a hernia, do you think it would have shown up during the colonoscopy? I am going to go back to my gastroenterologist and ask for an upper GI. I don't know if that will tell me anything, but it's worth a try.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Diverticulosis but I have not been able to get a colonoscopy. (Financial reasons) I have severe stomach pain and have dark purple and sometimes bright red blood in my stool. My stool is never normal. It comes out like pebbles and it looks like it has a layer of fat/oily or clearish white substance that incircles each pebble. I have had hernia surgery and have had 2 feet of intestines removed. Could you give me some insight please before I go to another Dr?
Avatar n tn Sounds like the problem I'm having also. If you find out please let me know.
Avatar f tn t want to check on colon polyps every year unless needed because when someone gets an endoscopy or colonoscopy they fill your stomach with air which give you a hernia until you release the air.
Avatar m tn I did go to a GI. He's the one who performed both a colonoscopy and endoscopy on me. I tried a probiotic for a couple weeks as well and it didn't help. He didn't say anything about the PH test but said there was a surgical option for the hernia. Since the radiologist i saw couldn't see the hernia in the barium tests he advised against it.
Avatar f tn I do remember the GI doctor saying his colonoscopy looked okay, but he did see a hernia which he said was minor "everyone probably has one" - nothing to worry about. I'm still wondering about that. They did an endoscopy (at my request) at the same time which showed the GERD. (My son just walked in the room and told his Dad his stomach hurts - it's driving me CRAZY !!!) Will ask for these tests - wish me luck. Thanks so much.

Avatar m tn Four months ago I developed pain in my lower left abdomen. It felt like a tearing/cutting pain and was quite localized. My bowel habits remained the same, but my G.P. thought it might be IBS and prescribed buscopan and trimebutine. They didn't have any effect and the pain got worse, particularly when I was sitting or physically active. When the pain began to radiate into my groin and left testicle my G.P. sent me for a C.T. scan.
