Avatar f tn Hi Everyone. I am 34 yrs old. From Kitchener Ontario. My DH and I have been TTC for 2 yrs now. I have had 2 failed IUI's and have moved onto IVF. I just had my transfer 4 days ago. I did not respond well to the drugs, and only had 4 eggs all of which ferilized with the ICSI procedure. 2 embryos were transferred that were 8 and 9 cell, grade 2. The other 2 were 6 cell and grade 2, and I received the phone call today that they did not make it to the blast stage to freeze.
Avatar f tn Im near Kitchener, but my MD is in Niagara (long story). Thought I might end up having to go to TO. I also saw on the list a doc in Kingston. Saw Dr Mullers name. Would be interested in hearing feedback on his perception of this disorder. Would you mind sharing if positive or negative? Good luck. I feel I have just started a journey that will be far more difficult and frustrating than my breast cancer ever was......
Avatar f tn Congrats! Are you nervous about taking care of three children?
Avatar n tn We have waiting almost a month for x-rays and now he is being sent to Kitchener to have color put through his system which they say could take up to 2 week before the appointment is schedule. Then after getting this result then Dr has to schedule surgery, which could take god knows how long that will be. I am very concerned. Could someone please advise if this is a normal timeframe. FYI - My dad is on mandatory work leave.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your reply. I live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and the wait is very lengthy to see a specialist. I have been waiting since June to see an internal medicine specialist with whom I had an appointment scheduled for next week, however, I recently discovered that my family doctor had referred me to a cardiologist (in error, I presume) and so my appointment was canceled and I have to start the waiting game all over again. The cyst is 2.3 x 1.6 cm. Is that considered large or small?
Avatar f tn Hi. I am also located in Ontario and I've just been diagnosed with TMJ. Have you found anyone to help you with this? Also, what city are you in? I'm in Kitchener and would like to avoid all the hassles you've been through, if possible.
Avatar f tn Having my third colonscopy. I had one eight years ago and I cannot remember feeling so nervous. I had a polyp the first time and it was benign. The second colonoscopy was fine. I'm having a difficult time with feeling hungry and waiting to take the prep this afternoon. I've already started having diaherra because of my nerves. Guess I need to unload and find support on here. Looking forward to hearing from anyone.
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?
212161 tn?1599427282 I do not think that you need to be worried about this at all. So go ahead and schedule your colonoscopy. Good luck.
212161 tn?1599427282 how many have had a colonoscopy and was it bad, the prep i ok with the putting to sleep i not like
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 I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. My family has a history of polyps, thus I had my first colonoscopy at 37 (2 polyps) then at 46 (2 polyps) All benign thankfully. I've had complete annual physicals for the past 5 years and all good thankfully. I am due for a colonoscopy and am stressing about more polyps. Also have anxiety and that's flaring up because of the colonoscopy. Should I be concerned? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Had a colonoscopy August of 2017, it now being June 2018 with diverticula diagnosis and polyps removed. Problem that I’m having every since the procedure , I awake every morning having pains in my lower intestine more to the the left side . Could something have gone wrong ? I went to the ER at VA hospital were the procedure was done . Cat scan was completed and was told all appeared okay. What could be the cause.
Avatar n tn My son is scheduled for his 3rd colonoscopy and he is only 7. If you feel they need a colonoscopy (symptoms) I strongly suggest a second opinion. My son is being monitored for Gardner Syndrom/ FAP. In certain situations a colonoscopy is warranted, because in some situations a diagnosis may be too late in coming. Granted not knowing is alot less stressful in certain situations, but when you weigh the possible outcomes if we were not told, I would rather deal with the stress now.
Avatar n tn I am going to have a colonoscopy this week should I stop taking my hydro and soma before the procedure?
Avatar n tn Why was it too painful for me to continue with colonoscopy despite being sedated I now have to have a barium ennema instead Im qyite dissappointed I have to go through the rig marole all over again
Avatar f tn i had a colonoscopy the other day. the dr went around the first 'bend', but couldn't push thru any further. he said that he didn't want to push any further because he didn't want to 'tear' anything. he was being very vague about why it was blocked. i am not having any pain and my BMs are normal. i thought there was a scope on the end of these things so you can see what you are looking at. why couldn't he tell me what the blockage was?
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 m tn I have had every blood test and stool test under the sun, as well as a abdominal CT scan, abdominal ultraound ( liver and GB fine) colonoscopy, and endoscopy. My question is, how frequently do colonoscopies miss something? I'm scared I might have a tumor. It was done by a gastroenterologist in Minneapolis. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks!!!
Avatar n tn I am having and EGD/Colonoscopy on Tuesday at 1PM. I am to begin tomorrow the clear fluids. I started my period yesterday. Will they still continue with this testing or reschedule?
Avatar n tn Hello: I am having a routine colonoscopy next week as I turned 50 in the last year. I have anxious tendancies when I see any physician and this procedure is creating a lot of anticipatory anxiety. May I take a couple of Xanex BEFORE I go to the appointment?
Avatar m tn I work in a university-affiliated hospital, so getting any tests is easy. The doc doing my physical recommended a colonoscopy; which I scheduled but when they found out that I had a bad (really bad) reaction to Versed during dental surgery they had me reschedule with a CRNA for diprivan instead of Versed. This wasn't possible because I'm allergic to eggs (therefore allergic to propofol).
