colon

Avatar f tn On the other hand, colonoscopy evaluates only rectum, sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, ascending colon, and terminal ileum (very end of small bowel).
Avatar n tn there could be loads of different reasons for the above and i am sure all treatable but i would think if u have not been a trip to your doc would be in order.
Avatar m tn I had already had a routine colonoscopy 9 months ago (a UK NHS screening present when you reach 55) and the rectum, descending and transverse colon were as clean as a whistle. My concerned GP ordered another colonoscopy 3 weeks ago and this showed some areas of bleeding/inflammation in the rectosigmoid section up to 30cm. I looked carefully at the colonoscopy screen myself and there were few areas of erythema (and certainly no polyps).
Avatar n tn I have told my doctor many times, that it feels like my descending colon (the last part of the colon before reaching the rectum) is paralyzed. It seems like the stool isn't being moved along like it should be. I have to take MiraLax every other night. This is not recommended as a regular softener. LOTS of fiber and drinking WARM water is very helpful. You really should request an appointment to see a gastro specialist. Something needs to be changed....
Avatar f tn The colon from beginning to end is composed of ascending, transverse, descending, and sigmoid colon, followed by rectum and anus. The gastroenterologist starts from the anus and works backwards. Oftentimes, the sigmoid colon (or first bend as your doc called it) is tortuous, resulting in an incomplete colonoscopy. Alternative imaging modalities: Barium enema is old school and less frequently used nowadays. A better option would be CT colonoscopy (virtual colonoscopy).
2158237 tn?1336756535 at a couple of different locations in the colon (view upper left - turn from transverse colon to descending colon). The color and shape are distinctive. Then look at the very bottom of the scan - blow it up - and look at the curve where the sigmoid should slowly curve upward and then loop down to become the rectum. do you see the 'shape' of that region and the 'color?
Avatar n tn hi, first do you lay on that side often? the area of pain is where your descending colon lies, if your pain persists for more than a week then you should see your gp and ask for a colonoscopy, that area of the colon is a well known area for colon cancer, i dont want to scare you but better be safe than sorry and have a test, cheers.
Avatar f tn in the left colon in the region of the descending colon and junction with sigmoid colon, there is wall thickening with adjacent inflammatory changes suggestive of diverticulitis. the possibility of an underlying neoplastic process cannot entirely be excluded. i recommend a follow up endoscopy when the patients symptoms improve." my husband followed up with his PCP after he finished his antibiotics. she recommended a second ct to see if the colon had healed.
Avatar n tn com/Q/On_what_side_is_your_appendix That said and referenced, the pain on the left side is more likely to be your descending colon. You should definitely see a doctor about this. I have IBS, so I know what I'm experiencing when I feel pain in my colon. But, since this is sudden and new to you, you should definitely see your doctor.

974534 tn?1301956787 Yes, anxiety and stress can make you feel pain in the location you're describing. Your descending colon is on the left side of your abdomen. The pain you're describing is usually in the descending colon. I get this pain for the same reason. It is common with IBS.
Avatar f tn e. inertia of colon (motility disorder) I feel leaving some part of rectum/ colon would be wise coz it will make the surgery easy/ less of fecal soiling problem lateron/ less chances of leak from anastomosis.
Avatar f tn From wikipedia - Important organs of the left lower quadrant include part of descending colon, sigmoid colon, left ovary and Fallopian tube or left uterine tube. If abdominal pain or signs of peritonitis are localised in the left lower quadrant, the suspicion is increased for such conditions as colitis, diverticulitis, ureteral colic or pain due to ovarian cysts or pelvic inflammatory disease. Examples of tumors in the left lower quadrant include colon cancer or ovarian tumor.
Avatar m tn Had sigmoidoscopy which showed inflammation in rectum sigmoid and descending colon. Had therapy with 3.6g 5-ASA daily. Blood stopped in day 2. Had a complete colonoscopy with intubation of the terminal ileum in July and everything was normal except a mild proctitis. If it was Crohn's disease, would my terminal ileum or cecum appear fine with 5-asa therapy?
Avatar m tn Also, about a year ago I had colon resection surgery for diverticulitis in my descending colon. Is it possible that diverticulosis may have developed in my ascending colon? The pain in my lower abdomen is not like the pain I had when I had diverticulitis but I can't help but wonder if this is what I have again. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Can you describe the pain you feel? Abdominal pain is rare in colon cancer. Cancer of the colon and rectum can exhibit itself in several ways such as: bleeding from your rectum or blood mixed with your stool; fatigue and pale skin; abdominal distension; abdominal pain; persistent nausea or vomiting; unexplained weight loss; change in frequency or character of stool; sensation of incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement or rectal pain. The duration of symptoms usually takes 14 weeks.
Avatar m tn I suffered from pelvic dysfunction pain and impacted mucus in my colon causing severe rectal pain. My oncologist removed my colon, rectum and anus and i have a permanet ileostomy. Its changed my life and I had been on massive pain meds for 9 years and now I take pain meds as needed. Get the diseased parts removed since he has a colostomy anyway, he doesnt need the other parts. I cannot express how much suffering i experienced and now I am living a new life.
Avatar f tn I know what everybody has told me..that I have spastic colon, that i have gastritis, that i am consitpated, my favorite one is IBS. IBS is a range of things. I just had one of my strongest spasms in 5yrs yesterday that I almost fainted. I went to my General doctor and she sent me to get X-rays and today they called me to tell me that I am constipated. Ok I understand that I get constipated but i know plenty of people that get constipated but dont get the pain in there rectum.
Avatar f tn 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 f tn Your docs are probably trying to get all the answers to decide the best form of treatment, and also decide if surgery is necessary just how much of the colon is affected. The vasculature of the descending portion of the colon varies greatly from person to person. So if a portion needs to be removed, they're going to want to save the maximum amount of colon possible - leaving clear margins for reattachment. It can take a bit of time to figure that out.
Avatar f tn I get this intense pain in what seems to be my colon but cant say for sure just know it hurts and is intense.It can last up to ten minutes then goesaway .
Avatar f tn Thank you for getting back to me, you have given me more realistic data than anyone else in the medical field. Would you suggest I do the Spinal MRI to rule out if I maybe I have a nerve root issue due to the correlation of body positioning upon pain onset? If I had an issue with my spine could it cause issues with the descending colon & sigma, meaning pain to touch or that "rope like legion" (may be inflammation now but it was there when I had the MRI & they saw nothing)?
Avatar n tn I have fluid around my rectum diagnosed by sonogram in Jan 08 and by CT June 08. The fluid amount is greater on the CT. The CT was then followed by a CT-guided drainage of "pelvic" fluid, which after two attempts could not yield any fluid. I have had two bouts of terrific abdominal pain, one in April and one just before the CT, that lasted two days each. My internal med doctor felt that originally it might be kidney stones vs liver disease vs diverticulitis.
