Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? No bloody stools

Options available: CT scan of the abdomen may be indicated but not for mild pain alone. If the symptoms are progressive and there is concern for Cancer (unlikely in your age group), then only I would consider doing a CT. Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone. If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do. In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, then ...Read more

Is it unusual to have a bruised abdomen after a colonoscopy?

Is it unusual to have a bruised abdomen after a colonoscopy?

Yes: Occasionally manual presure on the abdomen is needed to overcome coiling of the scope. This may cause some soreness afterward. Bruising may occur if you are on a blood thinner. However it is pretty unusual to see bruising after a colonoscopy. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy 2 days ago, after a 2 day cleanse. I'm in a lot of pain in my upper abdomen. Could my colon be bruised?

It's possible, but..: Most often, the colonoscopy is an uneventful procedure, but on occasion, depending on your body position while getting the scope and the amount of "snaking" of the scope that need to be done, you may have some abd discomfort afterwards. Be sure to call the Dr. Who performed the procedure and let them know as they would want to know any difficulties you are experiencing. Best wishes. ...Read more

3rd colonoscopy, 1st time painful during and after. Why tender in abdomen. Sedation was not effective. No gas, polyps, disease. CD in remission.?

Unknown: If you are having a different reaction than before, talk to your doctor who did the scope. One thing we all worry about is an undiagnosed perforation of the colon. If you have that, you need treatment now. Tell your doctor your symptoms now. ...Read more

Unusual causes of lower right abdominal pain? Colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, blood and urine tests have all found no cause.

Unusual causes of lower right abdominal pain? Colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, blood and urine tests have all found no cause.

Don't give up!: Not all bad things that occur in the abdomen are associated with high fever (example: acute intestinal ischemia) nor does the pain have to be severe (example: cancer is often painless). Remember, the abdomen includes many organ systems (gi tract, liver/biliary/pancreas, renal/urologic, gynecologic, vascular, etc.)--any one of which can cause catastrophic illness without severe discomfort or fever. ...Read more

Normal colonoscopy 6 days ago. No bowel movement yet. Constipation not unusual for me. Any need for concern?

No: Lack of a bowel movement 6 days after colonoscopy in a patient who often gets constipation isn't too unusual. I would suggest the usual measures to promote a normal bowel movement. See my Checklist "Treating Constipation" and go to: http://bit. Ly/1uzOegm Increase water intake, fiber supplement, dried fruit like prunes or apricots, more physical activity. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy yesterday with a biopsy. I am feeling mild discomfort and pain in my lower abdomen. Is this normal after such procedure?

Not unusual.: It would not be unusual to feel off the day after a colonoscopy, either from the procedure itself or from the anesthetic. Today might be a wash, but if you're still not right tomorrow then you may want to let your Gastroenterologist know. ...Read more

What is question?: Difficult to understand your question. If you have occult blood in stool and you are having belly pain and swelling, you should probably have that colonoscopy, and more of an evaluation, as quickly as possible. Did you have an exam? Blood test? Scans? Need more info and a rapid evaluation. Good Luck! ...Read more
