Transverse colon pain symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Transverse colon pain symptoms


Avatar m tn From the ascending, descending and transverse colon, the transverse colon is slightly mobile and may hang marginally into the abdomen. So, your symptoms may not be due to the colon and this does not need surgical correction. Please discuss the various possibilities for your symptoms with your doctor. Take care. Regards.
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 I have severe pain in the latter section of the transverse colon and the decending colon. Could the yellow stool be caused by the lack of bile salts? If so does that mean my liver is impaired? I did not have a liver test, should I? Or are these symptoms of another problem?
Avatar m tn Many people have right upper quadrant pain that can be associated with stomach issues, gallbladder issues or problems that result from discomfort with a portion of the ascending colon/transverse colon.
Avatar f tn I am 33 years old and for the past 3 months have had some upper abdominal pain it seems to be in my transverse colon, I went to my Dr, as soon as the pain started and she did an xray and said she thought it was simply constipation, I was also having some signs of acid reflux at the time so she put me on prylosac and murilax for 6 weeks and really nothing changed except the heartburn went away, I made another appt in March and had an upper gi and an ultra sound all came back normal.
Avatar f tn t aware that laying on their right side can cause gas to build up in your colon and form a gas bubble. The way the colon is shaped and with the gas rising upward, when laying on the right side it gets trapped in the ascending and transverse sections of the colon and is not as easily expelled as it is when laying on the left side. I recommend trying some OTC treatments like beano, gas X, prilosec, prevacid, Mylanta, mylox etc. for a few days.
809130 tn?1238409776 The appendages are situated along the entire colon, but are typically more abundant and larger in the transverse and sigmoid colon areas. The appendages vary considerably in size, shape, and contour and can be mistaken for diverticular pouches in some cases. The appendages are presumed to serve a protective and defensive mechanism in the abdominal cavity. Each appendage encloses small branches of an artery and vein that supply the corresponding segment of the colon.
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).
1363698 tn?1277816271 Well, I can tell you you don't want to just relegate it to gas in your transverse colon and feeling stressed if these symptoms persist! You'll want to consult a doctor to see if you have a problem with your gallbladder and the duct work since it happened after you ate ice cream. They might want to check out your esophagus, stomach and pancreas (left side upper abdomen- pancreas goes behind stomach) and liver (right side, bottom of rib cage area) as well.
Avatar f tn Another thing I experience is bruised like feeling in ascending and transverse colon. Especially after a bowel movement. I usually will have a day or two without cramps and going to the toilet only once to going 3 to 6 times in a row. Never had this problem before. Very afraid this is something really bad. Been to Dr and we have done a complete blood count and all is fine.
Avatar f tn And don't forget the splenic flexure - the turn where the transverse colon 'curls over' and becomes the descending colon.
7003050 tn?1390124013 If you are a smaller person you can actually feel your stool in the right ascending colon. Once the stool moved to the transverse colon it's harder to feel. Going to the bathroom and your normal colonic movement will move the stool along. Sometimes women notice it after pregnancy as we get more in tune/focussed on our abdomen. So totally normal.
1369218 tn?1282423884 several loops of proximal small bowel appear in fixed configuration and possibly related to adhesions in the left upper quadrant. There is no mediastinal lesion appreciated. Decompressed transverse colon to the sigmoid colon likely due to incomplete transit of oral contrast. So now I am sent to a surgeon for a consult. Has anyone heard of this?
Avatar f tn Since you are having Bowel Movements, You MOST Likely have Diverticulitis in transverse colon near stomach and need antibiotic to kill infection. You can find your problem: Print a picture of Human anatomy from Google section of Images, note where organs are, then touch your body to see where pain is.
Avatar n tn I had a colon resection in July 2011. 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?
Avatar f tn I have just had a tubular adenoma polyp removed 6 mm x 6 mm from my proximal transverse colon Histology came back low dysplaysia and was told to get checked in two years , but this polyp was not found 14 months ago and I am worried in case I get another before the two year review , Do you think I should have a yearly review as I suffer from anxiety and this is worrying me , Doctor is not concerned.
Avatar f tn Thus, bleeding from the anus, rectum, and the sigmoid colon tend to be bright red, whereas bleeding from the transverse colon and the right colon (transverse and right colon are several feet away from the anus) tend to be dark red or maroon colored. In some patients bleeding can be black and "tarry" (sticky) and foul smelling. The black, smelly and tarry stool is called melena.
Avatar n tn If I just had the simoidoscopy a year ago could it be colon cancer that is causing alot of pain in my lower side? Are these tests good for finding colon cancer in the sigmoid and descending colon? The reason I havnt had a colonoscopy is because I cannot have sedatives. Is there a chance that colon cancer comes that quickly after the Flex-sig? I am really scared. I thought I saw blood in the toilet. I am so afraid. Is colon cancer diagnosed alot around my age?
Avatar m tn There are twists in the colon from transverse side to descending and then a curve again from descending to sigmoid. Having a CT Scan done was a good start. Was the xray a normal xray or a barium enema xray? Try taking digestive enzymes like Beano and a Probiotic. Do a food journal and see if things like dairy or wheat affect you.
Avatar m tn The area you describe, just above the belly button is where the transverse colon lies. This is a common area for constipation, where matter has built up and is hard to move. This is generally obvious by a change in bowel habits, i.e. going fewer times a week and finding it hard to go. Gentle laxatives are the usual remedy and then a change in diet to include more fibre. There is usually a build up of gas in the area which becomes trapped and causes discomfort when compressed, such as bending.
Avatar f tn s a difference if it sits lodged in caecum or rectum from how well it can be reached) and I can see obviously an enteroptosis in the MRI pic (the transverse colon is hanging all the way beneath her belly button = sharp angles at liver and spleen curves = would explain constipation), HOW would we LODGE the so called faecal loading safely?
363243 tn?1331033850 t explain untill I have done colonoscopy and endoscopy and it shows there is nothing in my colon or stomach I stopped stressing and anxious then most symptoms disappeared , I can even say that I have my normal life back as I do eat fast food time to time, drink alcohol and so on
Avatar f tn Inflammation of the spinal cord can occur following trauma or can be transverse myelitis. Transverse myelitis is a neurological syndrome caused by inflammation of the spinal cord. The common presenting symptoms are limb weakness, sensory disturbances, back pain and bladder and bowel disturbances. It can be caused by infections, autoimmune disease or vaccinations. The treatment is mainly steroids. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn I have had recurring left side lower back pain that I think could be related to the colon. It only occurs in the morning (I usually go to the bathroom to relieve in the morning) and has been happening for a few months now. My health problems started 2 years ago with pain on the left lower back as well, and doctors still have not been able to find a problem after tons of tests. I had gallbladder surgery about a year ago, and was fine for a while afterward.
Avatar f tn I have the same pain/discomfort that you all are talking about too. I have IBS (mostly with constipation). I had an abdominal ultrasound about 9 months ago that showed nothing except that the contents of my intestines were barely moving. My doc said that it's my transverse colon that is causing me the discomfort because everything is moving so slowly. It comes & goes mostly but has been a constant now for about 3 weeks. I do feel better after BMs but the discomfort is still there.
