Colonoscopy hernia

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy hernia


Avatar f tn My mother was 70yrs old when she had a colonoscopy done. first she underwent a endoscope which revealed she had 1 ulcer and a small hernia nothing to be alarmed about dr said that it was probably normal due to her age. when dr performed the colonoscopy about a month later he revealed to us that she looked very good despite her age she had a very clean and smooth colon but did discover a little bit of diverculosis and a small case of hp pylori and could be controlled with meds.
Avatar n tn This is very important to go for colonoscopy, we have in family colon cancer.If would be possible colonoscopy as prevention in 1970' my mother wouldn't have to die in age 47! I am going for prevention check up every a few years and next week again. Blood in stool is never good, my advise is not to delay and just go for the colonoscopy. It's really fast... Only the drinking of that gallon of "water" is harder. But still worthy for exange of your health!!! Vorried J.
Avatar n tn I had colonoscopy, endo, barium enema etc...........and they found that I have a hiatal hernia, however, dr's telling me that, it shouldn't be causing the burning and tingling. I am still trying to figure it out. if you hear anything, please let me know.
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 f tn After finally determining it wasn'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 f tn I have been having upper abdominal pain and it is worse when I eat fatty foods especially buttered popcorn. I had a tumor removed last year and thought I was having a possible incisional hernia but have had a cat scan, upper GI, colonoscopy, and an ultra sound of my gall bladder. The only results I have so far is a Hiatal hernia which I have had for over 10 years and blood in my urine.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with hiatal hernia years ago. It only hurts sometimes when I bend over I feel a great deal of pressure and movement. I just push on it, and straighten up. I am having continous pain on that side under my rib. Its like a major air bubble that is pushy but remains there. I have tried to palpate it, cannot find it. I have sensitive hands and pretty much know whats not supposed to be there. I dont feel a thing. What is causing this constant pinging pain?
Avatar n tn old male) might be experiencing pain from a hernia despite tests that appear to “rule out” hernia. The pain is deep in the lower abdominal area centered around the left abdominal obliques. In the spring of 2005, I experienced left pelvic pain when taking part in physical activity. Today, the pain persists and is exacerbated when I perform physical activity greater than a slow walk or if I sit too long. I have no digestive problems except occasional constipation and gas.
Avatar n tn Now I seem to feel a very localized lump right in the area that it hurts when I push on it but to me it doesn't seem to get more noticeable when I cough or strain although I do notice it more when I stand. Does this sound like a hernia or should I be concerned with something more serious? Does pain from a hernia come and go? I am female, 43 years .Could stand to lose a few pounds and have had 4 children.
Avatar f tn I have finally found the answer. I think I have a hiatal hernia! My doctors all think I'm just nuts, so they keep prescribing medicines that either make the problem worse, or make me feel like I'm on another planet. I keep trying to tell them there is something else. I have had a pain in my chest since I was 12. No Dr. could ever come up with a good answer as to what caused that. They all gave me a different diagnosis. Now, I'm 38 and I'm getting closer to the truth.
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.
1072742 tn?1255478450 I had recently an endoscopy and colonscopy due to a chronis gastritis, change in bowel habits, a light anemia, a chronic pain on my left lower side and an inflamation of the spleen . The impressions of the endoscopy were non erosive GERD, hiatal hernia, chronic gastritisand possible IBS. The colonoscopy passed only up to my mid transverse colon because of marked bowel looping unable to go beyond that point without discomfort for myself.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy 2 days ago (also and upper endoscopy). Colonoscopy results showed no polyps; upper endoscopy showed a small hiatal hernia and short segment Barrett's esophagus. I experienced a tremendous amount of gas pains following the procedure - quite painful! Yesterday - one day post procedure - I still had alot of gas and I noticed that when I take a deep breath I have a rather sharp pain in my left shoulder area. This is still present today and is quite uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn Anyone here had a colonoscopy, and how did your irregular heartbeat behave during the procedure? I'm told they often give you versed or some amnesic drug so you don't remember being sodomized by The Amazing Mr. Twisty probe aka the scope.
Avatar f tn They also found what looked to me like a small polyp in the cecum and removed it I have not gotten the biopsy results and the doctor told me he didn't think it is anything and told me I would need to have another colonoscopy in 3 to 5 years. Here it the thing. Siince the colonoscopy I have no appetite looking at food almost makes me sick. I am forcing myself to eat Also I can actually feel what feels like a bruised area on soreness on the right side.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a colonoscopy because they found blood in my stool. A surgeon performed the test and he said that everything looked normal. It seemed like the test was so short could that have been the medicine that they gave me? I think it was versed? Also he didnt show my any pictures is that because they didnt find anything wrong with me? My mom said they showed her pictures and explained everything they did to her. I felt as though I was in and out in no time flat it was strange feeling.
Avatar f tn What type of drugs where you put on for this? In almost every case you are supposed to be asleep for a colonoscopy or drugged to the point of being unable to remember the procedure afterwards. It seems very odd that the doctors would perform this with you awake, and with the ability to be able to fell the amount of pain you where going through.
Avatar n tn 6 years ago I had a routine colonoscopy and it was the most upsetting medical procedure of my life. Even though it was done in a hospital under Demerol and Versed, I had excruciating pain, was thrashing about, totally awake, and in such agony that I was begging and screaming at the doctor to stop. Instead, he had me restrained in a Tyvek restraint jacket on the surgical table and I was held down while he proceded with the colonoscopy. It was traumatic beyond belief.
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 m tn If your doctor has not seen a swelling, its unlikely you have a hernia. Colonoscopy may have been advised to detect diseases of the colon. In colonoscopy the entire colon can be visualized and studies the inside lining of the intestines. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I tried posting this goes again. Does anyone know if a hernia can mimik some of the symptoms of IBS? I was diagnosed with a double hernia like 5-6 years ago and have recurrent lower right ab pain since. In the last 6 months or so I have has more gas and looser BMs with dull pain after..which subsides. Had a colonoscopy 4 days ago and the doctor said all was well and suggested a high fiber diet. I am 40 years old, male and other wise healthy.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy/Endoscopy done a couple of months ago and the GI doctor found that I had Hiatus Hernia/GERD...prescribed Omeprazole which was making me very sickly everyday, Dexilant was great but my insurance won't cover I am on Nexium. Not working either. I am constantly nauseated, severe heartburn, shortness of breathe sometimes, I am constantly light headed, insomnia, pain in the upper right rib cage..
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.
Avatar f tn Wouldn't it be best to play it safe and see a Specialist for a colonoscopy? I don't have a family history and I am just 32; however, why risk it? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Seems like an awful lot of blood for fissures.
Avatar n tn Hi youngamerican68, The symptoms you have mentioned can occur in hiatus hernia. The various symptoms of hiatus hernia are - 1. Chest discomfort 2. Heart burn 3.Belching 4. Hiccups 5. Difficulty in swallowing 6. Breathlessness can occur Anything that increases the pressure in the abdomen can worsen hiatus hernia. Straining during bowel movements increases intraabdominal pressure which in turn can worsen hiatus hernia.
1444487 tn?1284396449 I'm writing about my fiance. He had an inguinal hernia surgery (open), back in February. Here we are, 7 months later, and he's still in debilitating pain. He has a triangle of pain on the side he was operated on. It goes from his belly button to his left testicle, to his left hip. He normally was a truck driver, and did auto body work in his free time. He has literally been on the couch or in bed for 7 months.
521462 tn?1214929232 I had been diagnosed with a hiatal hernia approximately four years ago but was told that with medication it would be fine for now and that it wasn't too large at that time. Presently, two months ago I started getting stomach aches and just not feeling well so went to my primary doctor who eventually took a CT scan with barium to rule out diverticulitis which showed up from my colonoscopy this year. . The scan showed my area from the esophogus all way down to my pelvic area.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with small hiatal hernia 4 months ago in jan 2014.i was careful with my diet and was taking my medicines.2 weeks ago I felt sharp pain in my upper stomach and rushed to the toilet with diarrhea and lots of blood.the pain got worst and in 15 min i went 3 times to the toilet with blood only without stoll.the colour was maroon like not fresh red colour.I was scared to death.It was long weekend and husband was out of town so i couldn't go to hospital with 3 kids.
Avatar f tn He said there was no sign of cancer but I had the largest hiatus hernia he had ever seen. I don't have GERD symptoms, nor do I smoke, drink and am not overweight. He mentioned that I may have been born with this disorder and the hernia is moving up into my diaphram area. He has ordered an Upper GI series of tests and a colonscopy. I suffer from undiagnosed neurological symptoms, twitching, numbness and nerve pain. I also have a history of allergies and react to anaesthetic.
