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?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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?
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. ...Read more

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? ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Once in the procedure room, final consent is obtained, IV sedation is given (there are options here--some patients choose no sedation, others want to be "out cold"), & a thin flexible tube with video camera is inserted per rectum & advanced, taking pictures, biopsies, & therapeutics. ...Read more
YES!: A colonoscopy is a safe, thorough examination of your entire colon under sedation to screen for polyps, or to diagnose bleeding issues or other colon abnormalities such as diverticulosis or hemorrhoids. Small growths like polyps rarely cause symptoms until they grow larger, and can lead to colorectal cancer. You should be screened at least at age 50 or sooner if you have any rectal bleeding. ...Read more
Lots of options: There are a lot of different regimens for doing a colonoscopy prep. It depends on your gastroenterologist what they prefer. Ultimate what they want is a clean prep, so you should not have any stool in your colon when they look. You will have a sense of whether your prep is complete when you look in the toilet bowl and you shouldn't see any solid material left. ...Read more
