Avatar n tn She took both the IGG and IGM tests and both were positive. I also took both tests and was negative. My questions are, how accurate is the IGM test to determine when she came in contact with the herpes 2? Also can you contract herpes 2 from a Colonoscopy?

987242 tn?1335490770 Okay I just got back from the GI doctor and he is scheduling me for a colonoscopy. He believes I have colitis of some sort and feels this will find the answers. My question is, could it be colitis and the colonoscopy not show anything? I've had issues for years and nothing was ever found in the colonoscopies, so why would something show now? I am happy and nervous at the same time. Glad to possibly have answers, but worried it will be another dead end.
Avatar f tn Hi. I am wondering does crohns always show on a biopsy by colonoscopy? I have been very ill with all the symptoms and colitis was seen by ct scan and the docs say they think its crohns, just had a colonoscopy and I guess UC didn't show. I have been going through it since the end of December and its really hard. If it doesn't always show by biopsy any suggestions on what my GI may do next?
Avatar n tn At your original post, someone did post back to you that same day and described what to expect if you get an endoscopy and/or a colonoscopy, so click on the button at the top of this webpage at "My MedHelp," and your profile page will come up, there is a list of all your posts, and you can just click on your first one and the whole thread will come up. I have panic disorder and I take tranquilizers for it.
Avatar f tn Well, if you don't, you might be ignoring something that can be fixed. if your doctor suggests a colonoscopy, it is time to do one. ps -- you're knocked out for the procedure so you don't feel a thing.
Avatar f tn The colonoscopy might show something, but it probably won't. However a colonoscopy is a good idea to make sure nothing more serious is going on. Have you tried making dietary and lifestyle changes?
Avatar m tn and had a colonoscopy done, he ended up taking a biopsy and said that I have eosinophilic colitis. I had a CBC blood test done before my colonoscopy and my counts came out normal but apparently my body is releasing eosinophil cells to fight off something in my colon. I am nervous it may be HIV and here is my reason (please tell me I'm way off) -eosinophils are indeed white blood cells and if these cells cannot seem to fight off whatever is giving me diarrhea isnt that a bad sign?
Avatar n tn I finally saw a new gastro dr today. The one I was going to didn't listen to me at all and I got to the point I just wouldn't go. My symptoms finally go so severe I had to but I found a different dr. He told me that he believe's I have Crohn's. I have my colonoscopy on Dec 5th to confirm this. My concern now is that I have been brushed off by my previous dr and waited so long to seek help that I'm not real sure what options I will have.
Avatar n tn t have an erection at all. My questions is can colonoscopy cause total erectile dysfunction. I had sex with my girlfriend last Saturday, two days before the colonoscopy. Everything was fine. I am so scared that I am permanently damaged by the procedure. BTW I just turned 43. There are not much online about this two issues. The impression I got was that erectile dysfunction is not cause by colonoscopy. I asked the doctor who did the procedure and he told me it's not the colonoscopy.

Avatar m tn I would expect your doctor to order repeat colonoscopy, but I'm not sure how frequently. Routine colonoscopy is usually done at 10 year intervals, but your doctor may want to repeat the test in five years (maybe fewer) since you did have precancerous polyps. I have them every 2 years, but I have a history of cancer. They will probably let me go to 5 year intervals after the next one or two, provided I remain cancer-free.
Avatar f tn I went to my gastro doctor and he said it was probably hemmoroids. He did a colonoscopy and confirmed that I had internal hemmoroids. But I was still concerned about the missed period, pregnancy tests came back negative, blood hormone tests came back negative. Infact all my blood work was normal. I talked to the nurse at my gyn dr's. And told her about my symptoms, she said that the missed period was probably peri menapause related.
Avatar m tn colonoscopy withoout anesthesia? I am a male and going to be 58 shortly but I have never had a colonoscopy. Of course my health care provider is strongly recommending me getting one. The only way I will consider getting one is if I can without any anesthesia. My reasoning is first of all i don't want my wife or anyone waiting on me while the procedure is taking place. The next reason is I will drive my self home after the scope is done.
398021 tn?1212590766 I asked for a CT scan of which everything was clear and two days ago had a colonoscopy which was the worst expierence in my life. At first it was fine then the doc had difficulty going further i screamed in pain he gave me more seditive and my blood pressure went to low to carry on. What does this indicate?
Avatar f tn I want to know why I didn't receive any treatment after my colonoscopy. The summary conclusions from the procedure is as follows: Colitis found in the sigmoid and descending colon. The colon was mildly edematous, and granularity noted, no ulceration present, random bx obtained. And I am curious as to why it hurts really bad on my right side and not my left? Should I be worried?
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).
Avatar f tn I went in to have a double colonoscopy and endoscopy last week. It was suggested by my friend who is a doctor to determine the cause of low ferritin levels. He asked to do the procedure himself. He later asked if I was comfortable having him do it. At the time I thought he would be my best advocate so I agreed to it. My family and other friends thought I was crazy to have a friend perform this intimate procedure.
Avatar n tn 54 yrs old moms had 4 bags of placenta given following a colonoscopy presidure three days ago yet i her daughter want to know if the discharge she haven which is dork thick gluey blood clots normal she also is porn to blood clots and normally take cummoded meds
Avatar f tn Can a colonoscopy cause issues like this and what can I do to fix it? I have already tried probiotics and they have done nothing.
Avatar m tn Definitely go in for the colonoscopy- it saves lives! You'll feel a lot better than not knowing, ya know? Colonoscopy exams show much more detail than any other test for that area. It will give the best answer to whatever problem it may or may not be. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn I'm having a colonoscopy two days prior to a single fiber EMG. Can the drugs used for sedation during the colonoscopy, or any other medications for that matter, interfere with the results of the EMG? The drugs for the colonoscopy will likely be Versed, Demerol, or anti-nausea medication. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I'm a 30 year old female and I have never been through childbirth nor been pregnant. Over the summer on occasion I would have small amounts of rectal bleeding when I would go to the bathroom. In the fall it got worse, and I noticed a fleshy lump near the opening. I went to my general practitioner who thought perhaps hemorrhoids and gave me a cream. The cream shrunk the lump down and the bleeding stopped, but after about 2 months it all came back but worse.
778037 tn?1377986200 1. Can internal hemmorhoids cause an achy tailbone/bottom area, as described above, for a month or more before bleeding? 2. Can internal hemmorhoids disappear and reappear within a few months time? 3. If my colonoscopy was essentially normal last year, can something more sinister have developed in the meantime? Or do those things take years to happen?
2124601 tn?1335155369 In a couple of weeks I'm going to be getting a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done at the same time. I've had both procedures done before (just not together) so I know what to expect as far as prep and all that other happy stuff. :) But having them done together has brought on some questions. Are the scopes done in the same room? Are they done at the same time? Do they change how they do the anesthesia? Any answers would be great. Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn I am a 37 female that is not overweight, eats healthy gets plenty of exercise and has never smoked or drank. Recently, I had a colonoscopy because of rectal bleeding. I had an internal hemmrhoid but was advised to have the colonoscopy because my paternal grandmother died of colon cancer years ago. They found a 5mm adenomous type polyp and said I need to be rececked in 3 years.
Avatar f tn My wife needs to go in for a colonoscopy, however she will not go unless I am permitted to be there during the procedure. The desk clerk at the doctors office (nasty) has informed me that it isn't allowed. (tried to tell me it was the "law" (it isn't a "law" -- trust me.) Anyway... she won't do it unless I'm there... Were you allowed to have a loved one there during it? What can I do? Thanks!
