I had a colon resection for colon cancer and now have a ostomy. I'm having problems and a barium enema shows filing of the cecum. What would cause thi?
I"m confused: If you have a colostomy, and barium is injected into it, the cecum (the first part of the colon in the rlq) should fill. Now, if the barium is injected into your rectal stump and the barium fills, then there's a tract (fistula) between the rectal stump and the cecum, which is not normal. This should be discussed with the operating surgeon. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I sometimes have rectal pains after a bowel movement ; maybe spasms? Is this normal? Had normal colonoscopy 7 yrs ago. No family history of cancer.
?FISSURE: It's hard to confirm in this forum, but anal spasm can be a sign of anal fissure, a recurring tear in the mucosa of the anal sphincter. It's usually painful, and can be associated with bleeding. I suggest you speak with your doctor, who may refer you to a general or colorectal surgeon for an exam. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am 22 and experiencing incomplete evacuation after a bowel movement and occasional flatulence. Can it be colorectal cancer-i have no family history?
After being constipated for about a month, I have being having a constant feeling of having to have a bowel movement. What can this be?
Possibly....: Other people with similar symptoms have found that they go away after a week or so, after the bowel is fully recovered from long standing constipation. Others discover that they have irritable bowel syndrome, and feel better after being treated for that. Symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider. ...Read more
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
Having severe upper abdominal pain before having a bowel movement. Before today I haven't gone in a week. Is this something severe?
Need more info...: It is definitely not normal to have severe pain at any time. If it is related to a bowel movement, I would think about intestinal blockage. Your doctor will want to know if you are at least passing gas, as this will indicate partial versus full blockage (which must be ruled out). Some people can go for several weeks without bowel movement, but pain is not normal. See your doctor for eval ASAP. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal to start experiencing abdominal pain about 12 hours after having an endoscopy and colonoscopy?
Still having rectal bleeding after passing difficult stools. I have grade two internal hemorrhoids, I've had a recent clear colonoscopy and endoscopy.
Rectal bleeding occassionllly , have hemrooids, overdo for colonoscopy. Should i see a gasyrenterologistnor a proctologist.
No: The "transit time" for a normal person's colon (time it takes stool to get from the beginning to the end of the colon) varies from one to several days. Therefore, after you've done a bowel preparation prior to your colonoscopy, and the colon is empty, it may take a few days for stool to make it around to the rectum. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have IBS and these symptoms: diahreea, pain in belly, pain in colon, itchy bottom.Did a colonoscopy more than a year ago, should I have another one?
Rome 3 criteria: Ibs is associated w/ abdominal discomfort, altered /alternating stool pattern, accompanying nausea, bloating, gasiness. Often improved by stooling, ibs is defined by changes in perception of gut distension, motility, sensation. Diet & emotional stress may be a factor. 1st rule out inflammation, ischemia, infection (as with colonoscopy), then ibs is diagnosed with "certainty" unless risks change. ...Read more
I have had ulcerative colitis for 13 years. A recent colonoscopy showed a cancer tumor in the right side of colon. Should i go for a full or partial colon removal ?
Probably : Best is total colon removal because leaving diseased colon in place would keep you at future risk for more colon cancers in the future, and you would need frequent colonoscopy. Can get off colitis medications with surgery. Best to see a colon rectal surgery specialist, maybe at a university, who has extensive experience in ileo-anal pouch surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
