Colonoscopy reversal

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy reversal


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.
Avatar m tn The reversal was performed on Dec 12th and so far seemed successful. I did find the second surgery to be more painful and still dealing with a little soreness. My question is about a recent development of pain starting yesterday that feels a lot like the symptoms I had before going into the hospital for the first surgery. A slight case of constipation and a sharper pain in the middle of my stomach area. Pressing on the area causes more pain and it feels like my stomach is a little swollen.
Avatar f tn t since last July when this whole espisode started, colon cancer, resection, intestinal explosion, lots of infection, 40 days in the hospital, dealing with an ileostomy and after 6 months of healing, the reversal. He went to his surgeon, no real advise on how to deal with this, then went to a gastronologist who scheduled a colonoscopy but didn't give him a reason for it and didn't give him any advise.
Avatar n tn This led to transfusions, several surgeries, septic shock, transverse loop colostomy, reversal. About a month after the reversal the pain started, and now I am almost permanently attached to a heating pad, or aching for motrin! I can't eat much, it only increases the pain, and am cautious with alot of stretching or exercises that might irritate it. Any thoughts? I know I have a complex history, but Im not even sure at this point if I should go to a GI doc or a PT or something else.
Avatar m tn I have to have a colonoscopy this year and from my reading it looks like midazolam is the drug of choice. Are there other options? I've read about propofol, but the cost and risk discussed in the various articles make it seem like a controversial choice. I've also read of people having the procedure without sedation. Does this mean without anything, or are they on some kind of pain med?
Avatar f tn I have a 13 year old son who had a colostomy reversal 3 years ago. Luckily he only had to have the colostomy bag for 6 months. (which seemed like an eternity) After the reversal, we had to watch his diet, make sure he got lots of fiber, etc. Ever since the reversal, he has had lots of stomach problems, including pain near the incision site, constipation, stomach aches, excessive gas, and belching. I have asked the doc about this many times, and they say there is nothing wrong.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a routine colonoscopy july 9th and they did not realize that they ruptured my colon. so after 3 days they finally did a cat scan and found the hole.. they did emergency surgery and I recieved the bag.. what a great treat this has been (not serious it has been h----) And I too have had a ton of nausea... it did get a little better when I stopped the pain pills. But I still have lots of problems with it...
Avatar m tn IVF, but it's just as expensive as a tubal reversal, if it doesn't work you have to continue doing it until one sticks with you! You are better off with a reversal, you can try on your own, unlimited tries. It is expensive, either way. And you aren't guarenteed to get pregnant after a tubal reversal (not that even without a tubal reversal you're guarenteed). I have a girl I worked with that got her tubes reversed 2 years ago and is still not pregnant.
Avatar f tn A tubal reversal or IVF would have to be done. I had a reversal in Jan & we are trying just finished first cycle of Clomid to help with regular ovulation. You should find a fertility doctor and discuss it all with him. He can tell you which option would be better for you depending on the tubal you had done. Hope this helps!!!
149816 tn?1212683341 Hi, I've had my ileostomy since October 2007 following extensive abdominal surgery for appendix cancer and psuedomyxoma peritonei. I saw my surgeon last week who said I can have the reversal, how soon is up to me - I'm leaving it until the end of the year as I've had so much time off work and want some time without feeling rough after surgery.
Avatar f tn My husband had a vasectomy almost five years ago and the 2 urologists we saw suggested IVF with ICSI rather than a reversal. The reversal can cost as much as the IVF procedure. We decided to try IVF with ICSI rather than the reversal, however, if I had the choice again, I would chose the reversal first. Good luck, let me know if you have specific questions since we recently went through it.
1268251 tn?1299011770 I started this group... for any ladies that have had a TR/ Tubal Reversal / Tubal Reanastomosis. I had my tubes tied for 8 years, 2 months and 2 days.. i regretted it from the moment i had it done, and had two failures.. neither one survived.. im 1 month post op from my reversal, and currently TTC... is there anyone else out there ??
Avatar n tn After coming to the Lord and marrying my wonderful husband, we went to Mexico for a tubal reversal. Well, obviously from the numbers above, the reversal worked and we have three beautiful children together. Four of my kids were from c-sections. All to say it was a long road and about 1.5 years of severe pain after my last child before a diagnosis and the total hysterectomy(the pregnancies of course put my endo into remission and therefore no symptoms for several years).
667409 tn?1309152183 Has anyone here had a tubal reversal? If so, where did you get it done? Were you happy with the doctor and feel confidant he/she did a good job? How much did it cost? I just had my tubes tied in July and want to get a reversal...just trying to get more information.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone here had tubal ligation reversal surgery at 39/40+ and has had a successful pregnancy?
Avatar n tn i was just wondering how old u r and how long after reversal did u find out u were pregnant and who did yr reversal i had my reversal on the 20th april i had my 1st period on the 24th ovulated on the 24 cth and now counting down toi do preg test im feeling nauses but asuming it is stress and excitment im due for my next period on the 22 may hoping for the best im now 7 days b4 my due period and having a little cramping on right side
Avatar n tn I'm not sure about the cost of reversal, but there's also IVF...although it will probably cost about $10,000 and up, depending on the meds. Hopefully someone else on here can give you more info on reversal. Best of luck with everything!
Avatar n tn I had a vasectomy 6 years ago, and 4 months ago had a vasectomy reversal. The consultant was very hopeful after the operation, even though he could only join one of the tubes. I had a sperm analysis at 6 weeks and 10 weeks after my reversal operation, and both tests came back negative. My partner and I are very unhappy, and don't know what to do next.
Avatar n tn Not likely. It's a permanent procedure. Less than 1%.
Avatar f tn The only things you can do are pay for a reversal, or have IVF done. Depending on what was done, a reversal might not even be possible. The odds of you conceiving naturally are slim to none, because a ligation is meant to be permanent birth control.
13995282 tn?1432424867 I lost my youngest son about two years ago to sids and i really want another and cant afford a reversal. Is it possible to get pregnant without a reversal?
Avatar n tn You would need to get a vasectomy reversal. My husband and I have a baby girl after I had a tubal reversal. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I was in the same boat and you have two options...reversal or IVF. We did IVF bc I have no fertility issues and it has a higher % rate of pregnancy..ESP bc you're young...than the reversal. I believe it is quite a bit more expensive though. All in all it's around $17,000.00 for procedure & meds without INS. Our INS didn't pay a dime but we are pregnant w twins and know it was all worth it.
Avatar f tn why would you need a reversal, ivf and iui?? i had a reversal and just had my baby 10 days ago....and only did the TR.. if yiu get the reversal, u can try w.e you wish to get pregnant again but i had my reversal in mexico with dr perez.. u can look it up.. hospital de las americas, rio bravo, is in english and they speak english as well.....
