How is it possible that my colon and my uterus have grown a connection?

How is it possible that my colon and my uterus have grown a connection?

Inflammation/tumor: A fistulous connection between these organs would most commonly form as a result of marked inflammation in one of the organs. This causes the two to stick together, and one erodes into the other. Most commonly this occurs from diverticulitis of the colon, but certainly other inflammatory bowel diseases could be responsible also. The caveat is to rule out a cancer which could also erode. ...Read more

I have an avm on my rt butt cheeck it is also wrapped around colon and uterus will this keep me from ever having children?

I have an avm on my rt butt cheeck it is also wrapped around colon and uterus will this keep me from ever having children?

Uncertain: Without more information, it is not possible to say whether carrying a pregnancy to term is reasonable or not. Also, it may be possible to be pregnant but not to give birth vaginally.. Your avm sounds fairly extensive, and the doctors who defined the extent of the avm are better able to answer that question. Giving birth yourself is only one way of being a parent. I wish you well ...Read more

Could my diagnosis of a colon tubular villus adenomatous polyp of 1.5 CM have a link with possible adenomayosis in my uterus?

Could my diagnosis of a colon tubular villus adenomatous polyp of 1.5 CM have  a link with possible adenomayosis in my uterus?

No: They are very different processes, though they sound similar. The former could be pre malignant, the latter isn't . That's why we do colonoscopies, so we can remove polyps early on- as in your case. That was very wise from your part. ...Read more

I have a mostly blocked colon from a 10.2cm anteverted uterus and fibroid, yet no one wants to do a hysterectomy. I am 52 years old & small bodytype.

I have a mostly blocked colon from a 10.2cm anteverted uterus and fibroid, yet no one wants to do a hysterectomy.  I am 52 years old & small bodytype.

Why not ? : If your uterine fibroid is so big that it's blocking your colon then the hysterectomy is a perfectly reasonable option. Schedule a visit with an ob/gyn for a second opinion. You may be able to find one who can do this robotically in a minimally invasive way. ...Read more

Barium enema, pelvic sonogram (2001) results: normal. 2010. Redundant colon and a retroverted uterus. How can these conditions be congenital?

They are not: These are normal findings. The changes are associated with aging. The position of the uterus is affected by child birth, c-sections, and just plain old time. Also, the redundant colon just means your colon has a lot of curves - it's not diseased. ...Read more

Recently had a CT scan is it possible for a remarkably thickened sigmoid colon, bulky uterus, and ovarian cyst over 5cm to be related? Concerned

Recently had a CT scan is it possible for a remarkably thickened sigmoid colon, bulky uterus, and ovarian cyst over 5cm to be related? Concerned

Guessing: This is hard to call form just a description of CT, not knowing any other clinical facts. Can say: 1) the bulky uterus is 100% unrelated to the other findings, the thickened sigmoid "may" be related to the ovarian cyst or vice-versa. A doctor who knows your whole history and exam could answer these for you, can't say more online. Good wishes ...Read more

Malignant tumor removed surgically from sigmoid colon, the dr. Said he found a very tiny mass on the uterus (millimeters) which didn't appear in ct. Is this considered as metastasis or still stage 3?

Malignant tumor removed surgically from sigmoid colon, the dr. Said he found a very tiny mass on the uterus (millimeters) which didn't appear in ct. Is this considered as metastasis or still stage 3?

Was the mass on: The uterus which touched the sigmoid colon? Was this mass biopsied? More information would be useful. If biopsied and found to be consistent with colon cancer, the uterus is not a distant organ, but would raise the t to t4b and overall stage would become stage iii c. ...Read more
