Does Bloating Last For Several Days After Colonoscopy And Endoscopy
For the last three months, I've had bloating after each meal coupled with thinning stool and constipation. I had an endoscopy (normal), colonoscopy (removed 3 pollips), emptying test (normal), and so far one week on Xifaxan for SIBO, no improvement.
Bloating: Is the emptying study for the stomach or gallbladder? Did you have CT of abdomen? Would check gallbladder and pancreas, discuss use of creon (pancreatic enzymes), do food diary. Consider elimination diets one week all mild products, one week all gluten products, one week all soy products. Also consider food allergy testing and nutriion consult. F/u/ w/ doc. ...Read more

Too big a topic: Can't answer "all the colon diseases" in this small field. The large categories are infectious, malignant, inflammatory, drug-induced, and inherited. The biopsy result of your polyp will tell you what kind it is and therefore what category it falls into. Someone your age usually has benign (non-cancerous) polyps that are found incidentally while a colonoscopy is being done for other symptoms. ...Read more

Will a gastroenterologist automatically suggest a colonoscopy instead of a imaging/blood test work up? Bloating, feeling full, appetite issues.
I had a rough colonoscopy/EGD on thursday because of a tortuous colon. Still experiencing cramping bloating and no BM yet should I be concerned?
Maybe. Give GI a call: Gastroenterologists do describe "colonic redundancy" &/or "tortuosity" as a colonic anatomic variant that makes performing colonoscopy technically more challenging. In such cases, there may be considerable looping & coiling by the colon, that may not translate into colon dysfunction. Such variation can be seen in laxative users, when significant fibrosis/adhesions distort colon, some body types. ...Read more

Would diagnostic laparoscopy find ovarian cancer if there was any? I've had one, and ultrasounds and a colonoscopy but no cause for bloating found
Usually: Yes provided the ovaries were readily visible and you had a thorough laparoscopy. Bloating is often caused by excessive fiber along with inadequate fluids and all of the exams you had would all be negative. Try modifying your diet, cut out caffeine and drink 80-100 oz of fluids per day for 10-15 days. Simethicone and charcoal tablets may also help as will probiotics. ...Read more

Usually this: Is due to pockets of gas trapped after the colonoscopy. With the bowel prep it is not unusual to go 2-3 days after a scope before you have a bowewl movement. Eat light meals until you do and sometimes warm tub soaks or a heating pad can help. If you are running a fever call your endoscopist immediately. ...Read more
Calprotectin 680 with right abdomen pain. Colonoscopy clean, stool hard and sometimes liquid. Still got a bit of pain and bloating. 100% Crohns right?
Ileitis: Your gastroenterologist is best qualified to answer this, but I wonder if Crohn involvement of the ileus explains the elevated calprotectin level and your symptoms. Apparently no involvement of the colon was visualized. I also assume that irritable bowel syndrome, lactose and gluten intolerance are ruled out. ...Read more

Time 4 food allergy: Testing. If you're having areas of inflammation in your lower bowel/colon area, you are eating things that your body doesn't care for or irritating it, and that can appear as a delayed sensitivity to foods.

There may be others! ...Read more
Is a colonoscopy really necessary at this age, doc wants one because 1 yr+ abdominal pain/ bloating and reflux has now progressed to colon pain/cpated?
I am a 47 yr old female. I have severe abdominal bloating, (colonoscopy showed nothing), pelvic cramps, no menstrual periods for 3 months, and backac?
Several things: At 47 you are in the perimenopause and skipping periods is common. It may well be that the skipped periods aren't related to your backache, bloating, and pelvic cramping. A normal colonoscopy doesn't rule out irritable bowel syndrome which can cause these symptoms. Talk to your PCP, GYN, or the doctor who did your colonoscopy about this. ...Read more

If you are weak or dizzy AT ALL, please call an ambulance. ...Read more
