The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

I had MRI of small intestines that had shown no abnormalities. Is there any point to have a colonoscopy next? Would that show anything different? Ty
Possibly: I see that you have abdominal bloating. There can be many causes for that. An abdominal MRI gets a good look at the ovaries and other abdominal organs, but it is not good at seeing the insides of your intestines. If you have not had a colonoscopy, this may be a test your doctor orders. It looks at the inside of your large intestine and gives different information than the MRI.

I had a colonoscopy but the doctor said there was a bit of a twist in my intestine. What's that mean?
Redundant colon: Usually when an endoscopist says that someone's colon has a lot of "twists and turns", it means that the colonoscope had to maneuver around some sharp turns in order to get where he/she needed to go. It doesn't imply that your colon was abnormal - just that it was slightly difficult to perform your colonoscopy. ...Read more

Will a barium test show all of the stool in the small and large intestines? Is it typical to have one performed weeks before the first colonoscopy?
No and no: Barium is a contrast agent which helps the visualization of the bowel during X-ray studies.

Neither route is useful for imaging BOTH large and small bowel.If the patient has taken proper bowel preparation measures, there is in fact no stool in the bowel to degrade the visualization. ...Read more

Slow versus normal: Now that structural pathology has been ruled out in your colon, has your work-up also included an assessment of GI transit (slow versus normal "constipation"), of metabolic diseases (low thyroid, low adrenal), and of possible abdominal pathology external to the gut? Without these answers its hard to say what agents or additives will benefit (or harm) you. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
