Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy results

colon

Avatar n tn I recently had a colonoscopy and my GI said the results came back normal. However, the pathology report states: Right colon: "mild nonspecific chronic inflammation and mild submucosal edema; no active inflammation or significant chronic architectural changes." Rectal colon: "mild nonspecific chronic inflammation; no active inflammation or significant chronic architectural changes." Inflammation and edema don't sound "normal" to me...
7282682 tn?1397237735 I have a colonoscopy next week. The stuff they put you out with isnt an opiate is it? I don't want to do anything that jeopardizes my recovery.

923105 tn?1341827649 sorry to hear this, I had a colonoscopy last year and it's not a fun thing to have. The Dr seems to feel you have polyps to be taken off? When do you see your other Dr and have they booked you for the colonoscopy or MRI yet? hang in there friend...
Avatar n tn My biopsy results from a colonoscopy are back : AIN1, mild dysplasia in distal rectum extending biopsy margin. I was referred to a surgeon,-what does this mean? Do I have to be concerned?
Avatar f tn 5 mm tubular adenoma negative for high-grade dysplasia or malignancy (it also mentions semi-sessile in the report). I cannot see the doctor for follow-up discussions for another month, so I am really anxious about what this might mean. The nurse did tell me that he wants to see me back in 5 years instead of 10, so it sounds like they aren't too concerned with the results. I was actually shocked by this finding, as I understand it is not cancerous, but is pre-cancerous.
Avatar f tn Because the prep did not seem to be producing adequate results I added three Ducolax tabs on my own. I did get results, but nothing like my last colonoscopy, when I took a Fleet laxative. And, incidentally, at the time of my last colonoscopy a polyp was removed from the anal area. Anyway, when the colonoscopy was finished, the doctor told my husband that he had to constantly remove feces. He did remove two polyps from the anal area.
Avatar f tn 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 f tn Before colonoscopy, I had diarrhea. No results yet apart from diagnosing first grade haemorrhoids (which explains red blood). Fast tracked on the 2 week cancer investigation, CT scan, bloods and faecal stool tests. Still had no results. Colonoscopy painful, sedation did not work at all, I watched the whole thing on the screen, at times it proved to be painful, doctor took 8 biopsies - to be on the safe side. I am concerned. Will the hospital contact me or should I phone.
Avatar n tn I'm having a colonoscopy on Monday but am just so dang nervous. I had a barium study done that was negative this week. I've been having some abdominal pain. I had a CT scan that shows mild inflammatory changes posterior to the cecum. There may be mild bowel wall thickening in this region. This is nonspecific and could indicate inflammatory process or neoplastic process. Recommend further evaluation. I'm freaked just to see that word and so full of anxiety.
1478992 tn?1287429445 I recently had some tests that indicate that I may have need for a colonoscopy. However, I am well aware of the dangers of this test and the fact that it has only a 40% accuracy rate what other tests are there that have a better results factor and possibly less chance of adverse side effects. My CEA test that came back 9.3 ng/ml and that combined with a Low Lymphocyte count of 12% and MCH 26.1, MCHC 31.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, Im 20 years old female and hoping for some advice from everyone. I have been having chronic constipation and abdominal pain for the 5 years and then about 2.5 years ago started to notice blood and mucus in stools. It hasn't got anything to do with my eating habits as I have tried everything including numerous doctors suggestions for higher fibre intake and change in diet/lifestyle.

Most articles about over-inflation and perforation are from the 1980s. I can't find any other injury as a result of over-inflation than perforation.
Avatar n tn Can anyone help me understand if you have normal colonoscopy results and a normal small bowel follow through, what does the biopsies results signify??? Can that mean IBD??
554409 tn?1218403468 Korin, do you have a copy of the biopsy results from the colonoscopy and the colonoscopy report and can you give us the results of what they say? I know that sounds like a strange request, but sometimes small things are overlooked. The other thing is, have you been checked for celiac disease? Besides the colonoscopy, did they run a test like the Serology 7 to check for forms of antibodies that are put out with Crohn's or UC?
Avatar m tn I recently went to my doctor due to some cramping in my lower abdomen, mostly on the left side & because I noticed I was passing large white chunks along with my stool (about grape-size). My doctor put me on 2 antibiotics to treat possible diverticulitis or colitis & set up a CT scan. The CT scan showed no Diverticulitis, but did show that my colon wall is thickened, so I'm being sent for a colonoscopy next week.
