colon

Avatar f tn The last visit to gastro Dr and Surgeon I was told they could do a balloon stretching of the colon. I am scared of any more procedures. I do not know what that procedure is called and I cannot find much info on it. Does anyone have any suggestions as I really need some answers at this time.
Avatar n tn My colonoscopy could not be complete done because of all the scar tissue from several abdomen surgery. what can I do about this scar tissue.
Avatar m tn I'm having pain down the right side of my body in what seems like the whole of the ascending colon. It's hard to explain, there's also a pulse like pain that starts around my hip bone or the end of the ascending colon that travels up the ascending colon. I'm very uncomfortable after a meal and I can feel a little relief after I been to the toilet.
Avatar m tn For me I tell people that yes it is possible to be cured from Endo but very unlikely due to the lack of education of this disease and how to remove it properly.
4736912 tn?1358553216 Those tests revealed several ulcers in my stomach and duodenum and massive scar tissue in my bowels. They had no explanation for any of those results. The pain that I have now is definitely not ulcer pain. The pain is very different and it is in a different part of my abdomen. I have had 2 abdominal ultrasounds in the past 5 days. The 1st ultrasound revealed a 5 mm gallstone but only when I was in the prone position.
449658 tn?1211304322 I also have pain with intercourse and putting in a tampon. Just wondering if any of this information is consistent with colon issues such as colon cancer - i've never had surgery - why would i have adhesions on my colon? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Avatar f tn symptoms of vuvla redundent colon are, really bad abdominal pain, Nausea, Constipation and frequency of pain ( the pain level may vary), also a distended belly.
Avatar m tn Robert, I can't address the issue of the 'odds.' I'm not sure anyone can tell you anything about that until the tissue is checked by a pathologist. Whith the loss of (probably) the terminal ileum and some portion of the large colon/small colon, one of the things you will experience is the lack of a 'valve' that allows for measured amounts of contents to move from the end of the small intestine into the large intestine.
Avatar f tn , senna, castor oil, and certain herbs), hypothyroidism and hyperparathyroidism(by raising the calcium levels in the blood), intestinal pseudo-obstruction,irritable bowel syndrome, adhesions,colon inertia,mucosa associated lymphoid tissue,porphyria and stomach or upper GI malignancy. Constipation is an important cause of hair loss.Once it is treated,hair loss will also be treated. Increase the fiber amount in your diet. The best natural sources of fiber are fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
Avatar f tn What are some of the complications from colon resection surgery? My colon was resected in 2/07, and had a temporary colostomy put in, they also removed 10" of jejunum in the small intestine. The colostomy was reversed in 4/07, with a total of 28 inches of decending colon removed between the two surgeries. My colon was slow to wake up after both surgeries. Ever since the takedown surgery I've had ongoing problems with constipation, gas, and bloating.
7646776 tn?1392956725 Pylori infection that caused weight loss, uncontrollable bowels, diarrhea, and vomiting. I do have a family history of colon cancer and Crohn's disease. But there are more problems now then what I faced at 18. I don't FEEL like I have cancer, but I have never had it so I suppose I couldn't rule it out either. I am posting here because, frankly, I don't know where else to post. I've lost 11lbs or 10.45% of my body weight.
Avatar f tn I am a 36 year old female who recently had a sigmoid colectomy. It was suppose to be laparoscopic, unfortunately during surgery the surgeon decided to open me up from belly button down. Thank God I haven't had any problems with the incision, with exception of a little tenderness every once in a while. I am now 6 weeks post op. After week three my Dr. placed me on a high fiber diet, which made my bowels move 5 - 7 times a day.
Avatar m tn You sound as if you believe your bowel has been perforated by your doctor...This is a possibility, the only real way to tell is to switch gastroenterologists and have an exploratory colonoscopy performed..sorry to say... The possibilitys are that after biopsy, he did not cauterize the area properly, he perforated an adjacent area with the tools used for biopsy or something not of his fault.
Avatar f tn It was also like one of those things that you get so used to doing that you dont really think about it (like closing the garage or turning off your hair curler). I didnt see any signs of another one when i took the one out and still dont (and i have had sex sinse). Since then my period(s) (i cant remember how long ago it was) have been normal but about two or three days ago i started having very small amounts of red and brown discgarge.
Avatar n tn They removed from the transverse through the sigmoid. I now am experiencing obstruction of the colon due to build up of scar tissue where they reconnected the colon to the rectum. They have dilated the colon 6 times over the last 8 weeks and I am now at a size 20 balloon. Each week I have closed by half of what was opened the week before. How many times can the colon be dilated before the surgeon should be called back in? Are there any other options available other than Surgery or dilation?
Avatar f tn to or beyond the middle tissue layers of the colon wall; or to nearby tissues around the colon or rectum; or to nearby organs and/or through the peritoneum. Stage III colon cancer is sometimes called Dukes C colon cancer. Stage IV In stage IV, cancer may have spread to nearby lymph nodes and has spread to other parts of the body, such as the liver or lungs. Stage IV colon cancer is sometimes called Dukes D colon cancer.
Avatar n tn Tissue or mucous in stool: I have had gastrointestinal problems for a while; no 'specialists' have been able to help me. Lately I have tried mixing vinegar with warm water and doing small 8 oz enemas, frequently; I have released tons of opaque tissue. It feels good when I release it but I can't find anyone who can tell me what it is. I am going to assume it is lymphatic tissue that has attached to colon lining.
1280322 tn?1302780827 Ever since i have stopped my iron i have noticed that i dont really feel the need to have a BM and when i do its very small in size (not thin like pencil thin like one of the signs for colon cancer) and very little in amount. I have not noticed any blood. Im going to do the stool sample this Friday and im so nervous because im only 28. Everyone tells me not to worry and maybe im just not eating or drinking the correct foods to help absorb the iron.
Avatar n tn As for Blondieee, it sounds like you had a volvulus which is actually an emergency because the bowel twists on itself and leads to pain and possibly infarction (tissue death) of the involved tissue if not corrected in time. This is not a subtle condition and is quite different from a twisty or tortuous colon. Take care.
Avatar f tn GIVE HER CAYENNE PEPPER AND PAPAYA ENZYME CAPSULES ALONG WITH ANY ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUG THEY ARE GIVING HER TO GET THE VOLUME OF BLOOD INSIDE COLON TISSUE DOWN SO THAT LIQUID INSIDE COLON CAN MOVE INTO THE COLON TISSUE! The PRESSURE EXERTED by the blood inside the colon tissue must be less than the pressure exerted by the liquid food inside the colon for water to move into the colon tissue.
Avatar m tn I think it would be wise for her to make an appointment with a GI specialist. While colon cancer is very rare in people under 40, it's not uncommon. Those symptoms can be a sign of things other than colon cancer such as IBS, Crohns, or ulcerative colitis. The bump on the abdomen definatly should be checked out. Keep us posted on how she's doing!
Avatar f tn Hello, The scar tissue binding the uterus and abdomen is due to adhesion formation which are bands of tissue that form between abdominal tissues and organs. Surgery is currently the only way to break adhesions that cause pain, intestinal obstruction, or fertility problems. More surgery, however, carries the risk of additional adhesions and is avoided when possible. So if you are not having many symptoms as such then it can be avoided.
Avatar n tn Is this a sign of something serious or is this common and temporary? Also what are the signs and symptoms of colon perforation so I can have a piece of mind. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hm, enlarged colon can mean either increased diameter of the colon hollow (which would be from diverticulosis or simply from trapped air, or thickened wall. So, if you have thickened colonic wall, there's something in it, and only biopsy of that part can show what is it. If you're not bloated and have no excessive gas, then it's not air.
Avatar m tn yes ive even had 2 cat scans they tell me scar tissue and to avoid foods that cause problems, i never know what they are until i eat them . carrots even steamed seems to be a big problem.
178345 tn?1242536246 Scar tissue and adhesions are 2 different things, scar tissue is formed around the actual incision, it is a puckered like layer of skin that does not grow. Adhesions are growths of "'stringy" like tissue that try to bind things together after removal of organs, that creates a space in the area, the adhesions are the bodies way of trying to "make up" for the removal of something.
Avatar n tn Two small specks of benign-type calcifications seen in right breast. – No suspicious lesion seen to suggest malignancy. BIRADS II. I went for the mammogram cos I still felt the small lump and felt uncomfortable. As I had an adenoma polyp 0.5cm (non-cancerous) removed from my transvers colon in 2008, 2009 repeated colon scope no recurrence though I have IBS and piles (which was removed). My maternal grandmother die of colon cancer, paternal uncle and aunty had brain and intestinal cancer.
