Colonoscopy Showed Prominent Ic Valve Enlarged
Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? No bloody stools
Options available: CT scan of the abdomen may be indicated but not for mild pain alone. If the symptoms are progressive and there is concern for Cancer (unlikely in your age group), then only I would consider doing a CT. Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone. If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do. In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, then Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
My colonoscopy identified a "prominent IC Valve" with underlying lipomatous tissue. What is an IC Valve?
What are the risks associated with having colonoscopy being a mechanical valve patient taking coumadin (warfarin)?
Don't stop coumadin (warfarin): The latest research indicates that it is safe to perform colonoscopy and polypectomy while patients continue coumadin, (warfarin) as long as inr is in the therapeutic range of 2-3. Risk of bleeding is very low, and when compared with the risk of stroke or another clotting event, bleeding is relatively easy to control. You should confirm this with your doctor before the procedure. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Colonoscopy, normal mucosa. Localized granularity and petechiae were noted in the ileo-cecal valve and appendiceal orifice. Is this something serious?
Diagnosed with impacted bowel at ileocaecal valve, and colonoscopy was not successful, now looking at surgical removal. What can I expect?
Depends on cause: It is nott clear what is causing the blockage at the ileocecal valve - tumor, inflammation with or without scarring, infection, intussusception, twist (volvulus). In any case, the surgical approaches include open surgery or minimally invasive (laparoscopic or robotic). More than likely, part of your ileum (distal small bowel) and part of the right colon, will be removed and the ends reconnected. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It could. ...: This is why it is important to have surveillance colonoscopies done on the recommended schedule. Even if you are having no symptoms and feeling fine, it is necessary to document that "grossly and histologically" healing has taken place. This means to check how the bowel looks through the scope and to take biopsies to review under the microscope. If not healed completely, complications can occur. Read more
Not very useful: Rectal prolapse when the last portion of the large intestine protrudes through the anus. Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels that develop in the anus and lower rectum. Early rectal prolapse can mimic internal hemorrhoids making it difficult to tell these. Probably best test is to have a colorectal surgeon conduct exam by bearing down to show the prolapse. Protoscopy and colonoscopy may help. Read more
Cancer/ inflammation: Both cancer and noncancerous inflammatory conditions like diverticulitis can cause obstruction of the colon and symptoms associated with that obstruction. During colonoscopy, the obstruction will not allow the colon to distend properly allowing the operator to visualize the problem and biopsy any abnormality. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is weight gain normal after colonoscopy? I had procedure yesterday and today the scale shows I've gained 3 lbs
Unlikely, but. . .: Prior to colonoscopy, one has to drink lots of icky fluids to clean out bowel. As a result, one usually loses weight. OTOH 3# weight gain in one day could be from bloating unrelated to procedure. Or more likely, use of different scales at different times of day in different amounts of clothing. Be sure to pay more attention to how your clothes fit than actual weight (using same scale at same time) Read more
My colonoscopy results was all clear, but Dr always get samples to biopsy for micro colitis. Is any chance that biopsy show any serious disease?
I had a colonoscopy last week, which came back clear, however on my report it shows that 40 biopsies were taken from the rectum to the terminal ileum?
Had colonoscopy was told biopsies would be taken but everything normal so none were taken. Is this normal, I thought it could still show inflammation?
Also called interstitial cystitis, this is a chronic condition of the bladder that causes pain in the pelvis and low abdomen. The exact cause is unknown but seems to have some correlation with endometriosis and is more common in women. Ongoing research by urogynecologists and urologists are trying to better understand what causes it and how to treat it. Diet has ...Read more
