Avatar n tn Practically, it just means that your gastroenterologist had to spend more time doing your colonoscopy while he/she maneuvers through the turns. No need for any corrective measures. Hope this helps. Best, Frank Farrell, M.D.
Avatar n tn right ovary measures 2.6x3.9x3.6. Left ovary measures 3.7x2.3.3.2 centimeters. there are numerous follicular cysts in both ovares. there is a small amount of fluid in the cul-de-sac.

Avatar f tn I had my first and last routine colonoscopy 5 weeks ago and I was perfectly healthy and very active before procedure. I was injured during the colonoscopy and L 4 and L5 disks were herniated during procedure. I had no problem with hemorrhoids and now I have painful external hemorrhoids and my rectum is sore and swollen 5 weeks after the colonoscopy. I called the GI who performed it and she would not return my calls.
Avatar f tn I had a Colonoscopy on Feb 7, 2013. To date I have IBS since this procedure. Is there anything I can do to regulate myself. I have lost 25 lbs since Feb which is good but not by choice. After I eat I'll have bowel movements 4 to 5 within an hour. I'm no longer eating while I'm at work. Please help.
Avatar f tn If you have a first degree relative (parent, child, sibling) with colon cancer, you should begin having screening colonoscopy when you are 10 years younger that the age at which that realtive was diagnosed. For example, my father died at age 50 and his colon cancer was diagnosed postmortem. That meant I should have begun having screening colonoscopy testing at age 40. I did not know this, and did not have a colonoscopy until I had symptoms at age 46.
Avatar m tn They gave me the same antibiotics and the the doc said it if happened again I would need to do a colonoscopy (I should point out I was living in the Arabiab Gulf at that time). On returning home (to Australia) I evidenced the mucus once again. It is not in as large quantities as the first 2 episodes however visible and enough to make me concerned. I saw a doctor here and to cut a long story short am headed for a colonoscopy on 8 November.
Avatar f tn 2abdomial CTs, a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, a small bowel study, a gastric emptying test, an MRI, numerous x-rays and bloodwork --all was normal except I did show some gastritis on endoscopy and my GES was in high normal range..Removing my gallbladder didn't help my nausea at all..I was put on Carafate, Protonix and Zantac which never really helped very much...
Avatar n tn Uterus measures 7.4x4.0x5.7cm in size. Endometrial stripe measures 11 mm and contains a small amount of fluid. No focal uterine mass is seen. Right ovary is unremarkable. It measures 2.9x2.2x2.4cm. Left ovary is enlarged. It measures 6.7x3.3x3.6cm in size. Much of the normal architecture of the left ovary is replaced by a complex appearing lesion with small cystic areas and numerous septations. There is some through transmission associated with this.
Avatar m tn CT scan didn’t show anything so I’m getting a Colonoscopy in about two weeks and if that doesn’t show anything then I might have Narcotic Bowel Syndrome however I don’t have the system they describe just the pain. So if the Colonoscopy doesn’t show anything I figure I have to get off of the Vicodin. But how do I do that when in so much pain? Any suggestions. I’m really deprecated and worried.
Avatar f tn In the last year the left side of my ribcage has become visibly swollen. When I lie down I can see that the left side is taller than the right and it bothers me when I wear tight pants or a seatbelt. This area is often itchy and sometimes painful, especially after eating. My other concerning symptom is excessive gas every morning regardless of what I've eaten (even if I haven't eaten).
Avatar n tn Finally last week her CA 125 was 262 and they could not do a colonoscopy..the tube would not insert.. so did emergency surgery (June 09).

Her doctor said she should do Carboplatin..but Pallative said she has had no quality of life and with our without it she has 6 months.
Avatar m tn I got a colonoscopy, followed by a gastroscopy, and both turned out clean. My gastroenterologist said it might be IBS. Is the quality of life for IBS sufferers supposed to be this terrible? My gastro gave me a prescription for Protylol, and said to take one when it gets bad. But my questions is, can I just take one during any stomach problem? What are the side effects? I'm working and going to school, so bad side effects are not good.I feel like i'm always at the doctor.
Avatar f tn ) The tumor (mucinous adenocarcinoma), which is pre-sacral and perirectal, did not originate in my colon or rectum per the doctor who performed my last colonoscopy in July. This procedure, as well as two previous colonoscopies, produced a single benign polyp. The tumor measures 11.4 x 11.3 cm and constricts my rectum and bladder (urethra, esp). Per CT scan: "Large (11.4 x 11.3 cm) right perirectal mass seen.
Avatar f tn For at least the last three years I've had unexplained sleep issues. It started off as taking hours to fall asleep. I would have to be in bed at 10:00 pm in order to fall asleep by midnight earliest. I would sleep an average amount/quality after I eventually fell asleep. I just couldn't turn my brain off. In the last year or so I've learned to fall asleep quicker. Sometimes it can still take an hour or so but its gotten much better.
Avatar f tn What the baby measuring small during the 1st ultrasound. Cuz that the one that counts for finding our how far along u r. If it just measures small on the last but measure around the same on the 1st one as ur dates that means ur due date is correct just it's a small baby.

1531386 tn?1292109947 Yes, If you have insurance I would request for a colonoscopy. I had hemeroids also with some bleeding. I finally got a colonoscopy in Oct 2010 and found out I had a polyp 6mm. The test results came back positive for precancerous colon cancer. So, to be on the safe side I would have this looked at asap.
Avatar f tn Although I have not reported any GI symptoms to him, he seemed to push the need for an endoscopy and colonoscopy. I had a colonoscopy in 2006, which was completely normal. In his letter, he twice told me to call his office to set up consultations with HIS gastroenterologist and gynecologist, even though I have my own. He also wants me to see him in six weeks even though he's recommending i go to specialists. I do not see the point.
Avatar m tn over the last 6 months I sometimes get these bouts of diarrhea with mucus towards the end (lasts 24hrs or so they had picked up in frequency as of late 5 attacks in 5 weeks but I started taking a probiotic again and its been a 2 months since last episode.
