Colonic Adhesions Cause Of Incomplete Colonoscopy
What is the cause for colon polyps? I went in for my five year colonoscopy and they removed three. Five years ago, they removed two. These are benign
It is good that you had colonoscopy and had the polyps removed. We do not know the exact cause of polyps. It is likely a combination of genetics, diet and environment.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Adhesions are scar tissue which can form after any abdominal surgery. The severity depends on whether infection/inflammation was present at the time of surgery.

Can be dangerous but the preps used for colonoscopies are safe and very low risk when used as instructed by your endoscopist.

My son was told after a colonoscopy, that his small intestines were on one side of his body and his colon on the other. His birth weight was only 4lbs and 5 oz. Born only two weeks early he was considered full term. Can this cause problems later?
Hard to know: The colon is part of your intestine so I'm not sure what your son was really told. I suspect that he was told he has a malrotation (though this is difficult to tell from colonoscopy). This is a dangerous condition and needs to be surgically corrected asap- to be able to say more i'd need to know the medical terms that were used. ...Read more

Right abd pain: It could be nothing and then again it can be something. Hard to believe they didn't completely scope your mother's entire colon. It can be appendicitis, internal hernia, leak from the site of anastomosis resulting in an abscess. Better go see the surgeon who did the original operation. ...Read more
Can colonoscopy (done by an incompetent doctor) cause colon cancer? Suppose the doctor nicks something you know? There's bright red blood in my stool.
Colonoscopy: Colonoscopy by an incompetent doctor cannot cause colon cancer although it could have missed colon cancer. If a hole was put in the colon then there could be severe infection.

Grandmother died of colon cancer in her 70s. Granddaughter has had 3 clean colonoscopies in her 50 s. How often should I be screened?
Yes, over 50: Every one over 50 years should undergo colonoscopy. If there is a history of colon cancer in the family, it can be done earlier. The biggest discomfort is the bowel prep to get ready for test. If you don't want a colonoscopy, it can be done by ct scans and performing virtual colonoscopy. Early colon cancer usually begins as a polyp and is curable. Colonoscopy is generally repeated every 5 years. ...Read more
You might.: If your colonoscopy was performed under sedation, some people occasionally feel a "hangover" effect a day later. However, this is unusual, and would more likely be related to lack of sleep from taking your bowel prep. Propofol anesthesia is very short-acting, and would not be an issue. ...Read more

Scan vs. Scope: An MRI of abdomen/pelvis is a scan utilized to visualize the content of the abdominal cavity including colon. It will depict the external features of the bowel and unless there is an extensive lesion distorting the bowel structure and content, the luminal (phenobarbital) structures are not visualized. This can only be appreciated with scoping of the lumen of the colon with a colonoscope ...Read more
Possibly: We believe most colon cancers progress through a polyp stage. Polyp simply means growth and can be any size or configuration but can be small. Early on a cancer can still be partly a polyp and be removed during colonoscopy. They still need to be evaluated and treated as a cancer however, and it does not necessarily mean the cancer is cured by just removing it as a cancerous polyp. ...Read more
