C Scope And Colonoscopy
Colonoscopy 9 years ago. Marked turtuousity of the sigmoid and a redundant loop, scope could not be passed further. Any tec improvements last 9 years?
Possibly: Success of colonoscopy often related to degree of sedation for procedure. Also related to experience of colonoscopist. Flexible colonoscope usually employed to go around curves. Noninvasive virtual colonoscopy using ct and MRI but does not allow for therapeutic maneuvers such as polyp/tumour removal or biopsy nor visualization of lesions smaller than 5 millimeters.See 2 more doctor answers
Fissure&hemerhoid pain much worse after colonoscopy, can the scope going in make these conditions worse? Dr cant see me until august to give results
Painful condition: The colonoscopy should not cause a measurable worsening of your condition, but the procedure may cause temporary irritation and a transient increase in pain. The underlying problem may be getting worse, though, so if the worsening persists, tell your doctor or seek additional care.
I've had 2 c-sections and a hysterectomy. I have adhesions. When I have a colonoscopy they've had to use a pedi scope. This last time pedi scope wouldn't pass thru. So used endoscope. Need to worry?
No, but be aware: Those who have had abdominal surgery are at risk for adhesion formation. Adhesions can bind the intestines and colon. This can increase risk of abdominal pain and in some cases intestinal blockage. Be aware of any abdominal pain or change in bowel habits. Endoscopes are adequate to examine the colon as long as the cecum at the end of your colon can be seen.See 1 more doctor answer
Anything's possible.: If it can happen it will... But I can find no evidence in the medical literature re: reports of anal warts transmitted by a contaminated colonoscope. First, confirm that anal warts are present please--there are some mimicks.
When a gastroenterologist only can scope 80% of the Lg. Intestine during colonoscopy, (the prep was completed as written) what should be next step?
Virtual colonoscopy: Or CT colonography is used as an alternative for incomplete colonoscopy attempts.
I had a colonoscopy once and recently had diverticolitis, with infection, could I have contracted it from a dirty scope. How do I know they are clean?
Colonoscope: There are standard cleansing techniques employed by all reputable doctors performing these procedures. That having been said, diverticulitis will never be caused by a "dirty" colonoscope. This is an anatomic abnormality with outpouchings of the wall of the colon which are prone to perforation and infection spreading outside the gut. Nothing whatever to do with the procedure.
I had a hemorrhoid operation 25-30 years ago there is a lot of scar tissue last colonoscopy dr said had some trouble with scope. Do I need operation?
Probably: If the hemorrhoidectomy removed too large an area of island tissue between the sites where the hemorrhaoids were excised, the mucosa of the anal canal can form a stricture. This would make it hard to pass the scope. If there are normal bowel movements one can leave the situation alone or dilate the area. Otherwise the interspaced island of existing scar may need adjacent skin rotated in.
Dr. Fowler they won't let me see pictures from my colonoscopy. But scope and ct prior shows no Diverticulosis. Pain after scope and ct now shows div.?
Interesting: I will refer your question to Dr. Catano & Dr. Gabor.
Can colonoscopy cause Diverticulosis? 32yo hf diet no history of it. Now after scope in pain and ct shows mild Diverticulosis in the spot I have pain.
No: And diverticulosis would not be the sole cause of pain
Is it possible to miss diverticulosis on ct and colonoscopy? Post scope ct shows Diverticulosis. Ct and scope prior no Diverticulosis. Pain since scope.
YES: Some diverticula (e) are VERY small and when these little "bubbles" are filled with normal bowel mucous can be missed by both tests...SIGNIFICANT or INFLAMMED diverticulae will NOT be missed by either test... Hope this is helpful Dr Z
I have acid reflux for a few years. Had a large amount of blood hectically one time. Went to emergency room and then to a gasteroligist, Had a colonoscopy. No problem there. Had an upper scope which showed an esophageal ulcer. Have been taking Dexila
& your question is?: You've described high grade esophageal injury, which may occur in the setting of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), infection (Herpes, cytomegalovirus, etc.), burn damage, drug-related ulceration, Crohn's disease, etc. Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) blocks acid but may not have fixed your problem if not an acid-related one. Do you feel improved? Is the benefit of Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) to you outweighed by risks of continued use?See 1 more doctor answer

Had colonoscopy 9 years ago, was 23 then found 1 very small adenoma, repeat scopes at 1 and 4yrs clean, now back at 5yrs should I be nervous?
Do not be nervous: Colon cancer is a slow growing cancer. As long as you get colonoscopies when recommended they should be able to remove the adenomatous polyps that may turn into colon cancer. It is usually thought that it takes anadenomatous polyp 10 years to turn into cancer.See 2 more doctor answers

I had a colonoscopy a few weeks ago and got the results today what other diseases could cause crohns like symptoms other than crohns and U C?
Ibs: If your colonoscopy revealed no pathology, ongoing intestinal symptoms like cramps, diarrhea, flatulence can occur with irritable bowel syndrome, lactose or gluten intolerance or sensitivity. Chronic intestinal infections are usually diagnosed by stool cultures. Your gastroenterologist, who knows you well, is best qualified to answer your question.
Look inside colon: You are sedated (very sleepy, but still breathing on your own). The endoscopist places an instrument through your anus and then passes it into the colon to carefully exam the colon for polyps, cancer, etc. If any abnormalities are found a biopsy may be done. Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad.See 2 more doctor answers
