Post colonoscopy by 2 days, fever 99.6 wont go down and nausea. Is this normal?

Post colonoscopy by 2 days, fever 99.6 wont go down and nausea. Is this normal?

Probably OK: This is a relatively low-grade temperature. It is impossible to know for certain if it's normal without a detailed history and physical examination. If you are passing gas, and not having escalating abdominal pain, you are probably doing fine. Have a low threshold for calling the doctor who performed your colonoscopy if you have further questions. ...Read more

Hyperkinetic gb: Most physicians in nuclear medicine and gastroenterology believe that increased ejection fraction of gall bladder is probably normal (above 35%). A well known nuclear physician reported small group of patients with hyperkinetic gall bladder (above 80% ejection fraction) getting relief with removal of gb. More studies needed to convince most surgeons. ...Read more

2 docs wondering why colonoscopy @ 25. Chronic diarreah, cramping, nausea, fatigue. Polyp found waiting on biopsy.

Chronic diarrhea.: Sounds like the colonoscopy was needed to explain your symptoms. The polyp is very likely benign and was an incidental finding. It is not causing your symptoms. In the absence of any other significant finding on studies or colonoscopy, you probably have diarrhea predominant irritable bowel syndrome. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy Cuz of nausea,bloating,cramping,diarreah.small polyp found,awaiting biopsie. What r all the diff colon diseases?

Too big a topic: Can't answer "all the colon diseases" in this small field. The large categories are infectious, malignant, inflammatory, drug-induced, and inherited. The biopsy result of your polyp will tell you what kind it is and therefore what category it falls into. Someone your age usually has benign (non-cancerous) polyps that are found incidentally while a colonoscopy is being done for other symptoms. ...Read more

Functional issue?: Having a normal EGD and colonoscopy should help to rule out structural issues, but would not adequately rule out functional issues of the GI tract. If your symptoms are persistent, you may need to investigate functional issues. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy and egd done 4 days ago, is it normal to still feel bloated abd nausea?  They removed a gastric polyp

Yes: While performing the endoscopic exam AIR is introduced to dilate and then properly observe the lining of your upper gastrointestinal tract! It takes a while for this gas to pass! 4 days is absolutely normal..a week maximal after that consult with the endoscopist! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

Mag Citrate: Several options: chill and drink slowly. Have hot coffee/tea before to get intestines simulated in the correct direction. Use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) the morning of and/or day before, again to get the tract flowing easily. ...Read more

Stool studies: It seems like a structural cause was ruled out, in the test limits, of course. I wonder if you had stool studies-cultures, parasites, etc. Among others, functional conditions will have to be questioned, too. Either way, talk to your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Nausea 9% functioning of gallbladder after hida scan otherwise no pain or gallstones. Endoscopy, MRI, Colonoscopy (l 1/2 yrs. ago ) Ultrasound all OK. Diagnosis is to remove GB...unsure?

Nausea 9% functioning of gallbladder after hida scan otherwise no pain or gallstones.  Endoscopy, MRI, Colonoscopy (l 1/2 yrs. ago )  Ultrasound all OK.  Diagnosis is to remove GB...unsure?

Sick GB: Nausea and only 9% function on a hida scan? Sounds like a sick gallbladder is a distinct possibility. Now whether you want surgery or not is up to you. Depends on how miserable you are. You may be able to keep symptoms under control with dietary changes. The risk of not treating it, is that you might find that you need it removed emergently later. Not optimal. ...Read more

Hi have had nausea, gut rot feeling, weight loss (30 lbs), tachycardia, dizziness. Normal endoscopy/colonoscopy, scans... what coukd it be?

See an internist: The weight loss, if over a short period is concerning, if you've traveled recently this could be an intestinal parasite, but the dizziness and tachycardia could be something else when you put the symptoms all together. See a good internist, get a good physical exam, and probably a stool sample, urinalysis, and blood work to see what is causing you troubles, it may not be in your GI tract...Meds? ...Read more
