Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy video


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!
Avatar n tn The new GI says that with Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis you dont have to lose weight. Problem is she has had the Video capsule, Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, Barium Small Bowel Xrays as well as lower Abdomen xrays. The showed an are in the Small Bowel approx 10-20cm that was abnormal thickening. I hate to have her go through those test again. Had the Blood test IBD 7 Serology I believe and they said it did not indicate Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis.
Avatar m tn s related to the lower bloating issues. Upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, CT, gastric emptying were OK. None of the medications tried help much: bentyl, rifaximen, zoloft, probiotics, ibgard, miralax, etc. I would say my stools are mostly drier, harder to pass. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas what the cause is I'd appreciate it, I've been miserable every day. Does anyone else with "IBS" have this constant loud gas sounds?
Avatar n tn They put the gas in there to expand the area so that the organs can be viewed better. ( Got this from a video my Dr. had me watch prior to my procedure) I was very lucky in that I didn't have the problem at all..But, from what I've heard, it is felt frequently in the shoulder area..I, too , have heard that walking is the very best thing . I would think though, if it continues more than a few days , I would call the Dr.s office.
Avatar m tn Have you had you liver evaluated? Also, any bowel studies (colonoscopy, barium swallow, etc.)? If your liver or gallbladder aren't working correctly, or if you aren't eliminating bowel material properly, or you have a partial bowel obstruction, these can all create your symptoms. I'd imagine by now you've tried adding fiber and fruit to your diet...
Avatar m tn Ok, good if he has had the colonoscopy recently that it is not likely a blockage. Although, blockages can occur depending on what his colon is like and so forth. Also, the diet may help. If it continues with eating small portions and changing to this kind of diet (even though it is hard to change to if he eats a lot of meat) then he should see a GI doctor. Also, if he really wants to change his diet there is a website for some diet meals on My husband and I are on this diet.
Avatar m tn Well if you are bleeding from your rectum, I'd ask for a colonoscopy. You're 50 so you should have one anyways.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum. I do believe that The Chiari Insitute has a video on this proceedure and others..... I have not watched it as I am the type that does not want to see that until after and maybe not even then...I have a sensitive stomach.....
765439 tn?1292960414 I'm sorry it's not that nobody wants to help, we are not qualified to look at your photos and tell you what is wrong. Call your Gastroenterologist and make an appt. to sit down with him and have HIM explain what is going on. This should have been done at the time you were video taping these. It's his job, and responsibility to explain everything to you, and don't leave his office until you completely understand everything. I'm sorry you felt we didn't care, we do.
20917891 tn?1647298406 My symptoms got worse and I got really sick and did a video appointment with a NP at my PCPs office. She told me that I needed to go to the ER and get fluids. The ER did a CT scan and found nothing wrong and I was told, "We really don't know what to tell you. The ER is for life threatening illness.". They didn't even finish the IV before they sent me on my way. In the last 6 months I've had an endoscopy, MRCP (special MRI), colonoscopy and 2 CTs.
739070 tn?1338603402 Hi Rendean, I'm not sure which doctor would help you with bowel incontinence - the neuro definitely needs to know about it but they may refer you to a GI doctor.. If you haven't already had them, I'm sure they will perform a colonoscopy to make sure there isn't a different problem going on. I'm so sorry that your symptoms keep piling up.
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.
