What is fluid filled dialted bowel  loops and how it cause?

Obstruction : That radiologic finding is usually a result of a bowel obstruction, but can also be seen sometimes in severe diarrhea.

This cause the fluid to fill the bowel and stretch it. ...Read more

Not so much harm: The bigger concern with cola, and in general carbonated beverages, is the gas and bloating associated with the carbonation. There is some suggestion that soda might trigger flares but there isn't really any great data in regards to this. ...Read more

Please clarify: Please clarify what your question is. I am not sure what procedure you are describing in nov 2011 (perhaps a sphincterotomy?). Are you asking if your gallbladder is gone? Regardless, it sounds like you may be having a gallstone problem or something else. Please see your doctor. ...Read more

When evaluating an abdominal xray, how can you tell if the large bowel is dilated? Is it based solely on the size/circumference of the bowel?

When evaluating an abdominal xray, how can you tell if the large bowel is dilated? Is it based solely on the size/circumference of the bowel?

Yes: The upper limit of normal diameter of the bowel is generally accepted as 3cm for the small bowel, 6cm for the colon and 9cm for the cecum (3/6/9 rule). Hard numbers are less commonly used than a determination based on experience though. ...Read more

A ? to ask surgeon: To answer this question, we'd need more details as to why you had to have the ct done. Was there something that was bothersome enough to have it ordered. Did the ct scan show anything else? There is a good chance the surgery didn't go right or something happened in the postoperative period. Your surgeon might be able to address these concerns better since he was the one who did it. ...Read more

What is congenital nonrotation of the bowel and mildly dilated appendix  measure 1cm. I had a CT scan and that was results and not sure what it means.

Google for pics: In nonrotation,the herniated midgut loop fails to undergo its 180° rotation,although the first 90°rotation occurs as normal.The result is that the original caudal (tail) limb (mainly colon) returns to lie on the left side of the abdominal cavity and the original cranial limb (consisting of ileum and jejunum) passes to lie on the right side. If a volvulus occurs,it can pinch the SMA and cause probs ...Read more

Overdose: Those are classic symptoms of overdose of a muscle relaxant, such as soma or flexeril. Narcotic ods (oxycontin, vicodin, others) produce similar symptoms, except that the pupils are typically constricted, not dilated. ...Read more
