Can adult Hirschsprungs, redundancy of transverse colon, cause accessory spleen from spleen injury caused by colon adhesion at the splenic flexure?

Can adult Hirschsprungs, redundancy of transverse colon,  cause accessory spleen from spleen injury caused by colon adhesion at the splenic flexure?

Not quite, but....: An accessory spleen is something that one person in four is born with, or that can happen if the splenic capsule is torn and some of the pulp is released. If this happened at the time that an injury formed the colonic adjesion, this may be the explanation. Accessory spleens are little curiosities for the most part. Best wishes. ...Read more

Pancreatic cancer. Whipple. Chemo 7 months. Tumors in pancreas and liver. Recent blood clot. Pain. New intestinal blockage. Is my body shutting down?

Difficult disease: Some blockages are due to scar tissue inside the abdomen (called adhesions), and other blockages are due to cancer growth. A CT scan may be able to tell the difference between the 2. If the blockage is cancer-related, then it may be time to think about a different chemotherapy regimen. But if it's just adhensions, then sometimes an operation helps. Talk to your doctor to investigate further ...Read more

Very different: conditions. Both the conditions of "gastroparesis" and "SMA syndrome" are uncommon, and are very different, unrelated conditions. Neither of these would be related to past surgery.

Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain

Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated? Remember, colon cancer has minimal symptoms and CT is NOT a great test for it. In sum though low yield I would likely recommend colonoscopy to you based on what I've read. ...Read more
