Colonoscopy uses

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy uses


Avatar f tn For intravenous contrast, MRI uses gadolinium contrast whereas CT uses iodinated contrast; there is no cross-reactivity between different classes of contrast media.* For oral contrast, this uses VoLumen (barium sulfate suspension), which rarely has allergic reaction. While you should not have a contrast study if you had prior severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis), you can still consider having a contrast study if you had prior mild to moderate allergic reaction (e.g.
Avatar f tn t due to an umbilical hernia surgery I just had a colonoscopy yesterday. My pain is just left of the umbical area. This pain is worsened by activities like standing in one place for too long or sitting on a hard surface. I cannot participate in any physical sport that actively uses the core and the pain is everyday. Does not seem to be related to my diet at all. I do get "muddy" brown stools about 2-3x /day - twice a week.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a hemorrhoid that has progressed to stage from stage 1 to stage 3 over the last 10 years. I am a 53 year old male, 6ft (170lb) and the hemorrhoid is not giving me any problems except it has to be pushed back in the anus after bowel movements. My thought is to have it banded before it gets to stage 4 when banding may no longer be an option. I had a couple of hemorrhoids banded 15 years ago and glad I did it even though it was uncomfortable for several days.
Avatar f tn If the cause is not obvious from a physical examination, you may wish to request a colonoscopy and endoscopy which can both be carried out at the same time.
Avatar f tn I am a 39 year old female,overweight and non smoker. I had a colonoscopy done last week where a flat polyp 30mm in size was found and tattooed. Biopsies were taken although I havent got the results yet. I had the colonoscopy as previously had one where polyps were found but they were NAD. I was admitted to hospital 7 months ago with abdominal pain (not severe) loss of appetite and nausea. The loss of appetite has continued since.
Avatar n tn Yet it does not surprise, When I went to have my endoscopy and colonoscopy. I felt like i was at a factory convyer belt. We didn't even change clothes or take off our shoes! (for the endoscopy anyway) I think so many times Docs are all about doing procedures" for the insurance money! It is crazy! I have no words!
Avatar n tn Hi, how does one go about finding a doctor who will perform a colonoscopy with no sedation? I want to find one that does not try to convince me to have sedation for the procedure.
552053 tn?1273331741 Is there a way to prep for a colonoscopy without taking any drugs.. IE DIET related ways? For example For 1 day only drink liquids ect? I am HYPERSENSITVE to EVERYTHING and worry about the MoviPrep.
1569985 tn?1328247482 I have to go off my Warfarin for a colonoscopy. The cardiologist's nurse said ask the doctor doing the procedure how long I should be off of the Warfarin. Doctor says ask the assistant when she gives me my instructions. Assistant says, "Oh, I'm supposed to tell you? Do you need a bridge medication like Lovenox?" Makes me a little nervous going off of it anyway and now this.
Avatar f tn My four year old son has been having digestive issues. His EGD/colonoscopy showed that he has gastritis and duodenitis. They also did a pancreatic stimulus test to check for pancreatitis and other pancreas problems as well as checking for CF. Since your daughter has asthma, that would be more of an idication that this could be CF. I would have her tested for that if they haven't already done so.
Avatar m tn And i am very confuse about this. I go to doctor half hour later. And ask him endoscopy clean or not? He say endoscopy uses today first me. Also all materials clean. Special solutions ... But i still worried. What you think about? Sorry for my bad English. Thanks for your help!
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?
