Intestine (Definition)

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).

Hard to say: If you have had an extensive work-up, but still have no diagnosis, go back to your primary care physician and go over all of the tests and results and continued symptoms with him or her. Chances are, something is being overlooked or not addressed. In the meantime, for bowel dysfunction, eat yogurt twice daily and take a probiotic twice daily - like culturelle. Normalizing the bowel flora may work. ...Read more

Have symptoms of irritable bowel  Recently underwent colonoscopy which came negative. However multiple times toilet, incomplete bowel evacuation feel, soft flat stools persist. Request advise.

Irritable bowel: If your gastroenterologist is comfortable that enough work up has been done to rule out other causes and feels that IBS is the culprit, it is time to start trying to treat it. Adding extra fiber to the diet is a good start. There are medications such as anti-spasmodics which tend to work well in some situations also. Talk to your G.I. doctor about what is the next step. Good luck. ...Read more

Dx of diverticulitis: If you have diverticulosis (non-inflamed out-pockets of the colon), it should be visible on a colonoscopy performed by a gastroenterologist. However, if your diverticuli are inflamed (i.e. Diverticulitis), the risk of perforation with colonoscopy may be unacceptable. Under the circumstance your doctor may instead evaluate with a pelvic and abdominal ct scan to rule out diverticular complications. ...Read more

Drainage needed: For the most part colonoscopy is a well tolerated procedure with little if any complication. Occassionally if a small lesion is biopsied, the biopsy forceps takes too deep a bite and a small pinhead performation can occur. Leakage of fecal material causes abscess. Antibiotics needed and abdominal scan to define any collection also required. This would suggest whether drainage required. ...Read more

Not typically: Depending on age , lower left sided abdominal pain may be an indication of diverticulitis.This might be the " inflamed bowel" you are referring to.Putting the bowel at rest with clear liquids initially, and antibiotics usually helps.A. Ct scan of the abdomen/pelvis can help make the diagnosis.After you feel better, and the infection resolves , a colonoscopy is indicated to further evaluate the colon. ...Read more

Unless you had: A hemorrhoidectomy, everyone has hemorrhoids..They are normal vascular cushions. Only when they are abused from diarrhea or constipation or some other trauma can they cause problems. Even with a negative scoping 7 yrs ago, new onset bleeding needs evaluation and probably a repeat colonoscopy. Don't ignore this. ...Read more
