Could u recommend some body having redundant colon to have colon surgery by fearing that some day it could happen colon twisting?
Volvulus is...: ...Colon obstruction brought about by twisting of the colon. While having "redundant colon" may be a common factor in people who develop volvulus, we never recommend surgery for this condition unless they have had a documented episode of obstruction. Stated another way, many people have redundant colon (esp in the elderly and/or chronic constipation) but few develop volvulus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do you mean mucous?: Anal discharge is most likely proctitis, seborrhea or anal fissure. Have you been cleared of std? Helminthic infections usually do not have rectal discharge.

Is it possible to have colonoscopy even with rectum fissures because of bloody diarrhea from colon?
Woried abdomen CT scan may have missed any defects I may have with colon because colon was full of stool (needed to empty bowel but couldn't).
CT likely adequate: The radiologist who read your CT was likely able to see everything that is possible to see on a CT even with stool in your bowel. CT can not see small defects in the bowel wall, and often can miss polyps even with an empty colon. If you did not receive a diagnosis from the CT, and are having bowel problems, I would recommend consulting with a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ascending colon pain age 21 change in bowel habits and no anemia went to the er three times and everything clear.Scared it might be Colon cancer.
See below:: Agree with Dr. KATAKKAR. It is unlikely that you have colon cancer. However, the issue is not suitable for ER. You need to see your primary care provider and let her/him decide if a referral to a gastroenterologist is warranted. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
