Medicine For Angiodysplasia Of The Colon
If i had a parasitic worm hidden in folds of my colon could I do a colon cleanse to remove it or at least get it out of there so medicine can get it?
Not likely scenario: Parasitic worms uncommon in general in western countries without history of travel to underdeveloped countries, ingestion of raw/uncooked seafood (sushi) or undercooked pork etc. If your ova & parasite tests were negative on three samples & don't have risk factors listed unlikely you have a parasite. You list Mebendazole as a medication taking so have been treated. Bowel cleanse not likely benefit. ...Read more
How soon can a colon re-connection reversal be performed? I finished my last round of chemo on 10/14/2005 with the social medicine program in Mexico. I plan to return to Texas to have this surgery preformed. I was on the FOLFOX regimen. What would cau
Colostomy reversal: There is no set time table for the ability to perform a colostomy reversal. It depends on a lot of factors, most importantly how much of the colon was removed, which portions they were, and how your blood counts are doing after your chemotherapy. Whatever surgeon you see in Texas should be able to give you a ballpark date. Best of luck! ...Read more
Investigational: NEO 102 is a monoclonal antibody, not what is usually meant by the word chemotherapy. It is the subject of ongoing clinical trials. Therefore it is not yet known whether the drug is useful, harmful, or indifferent. In the U.S. it would only be available for subjects in a clinical trial. I suspect, but am not certain, that that is true in the U.K. Too. ...Read more
I mean if chemotherapy does not work fir metastic colon cancer , can anything be done , any new drugs ?
Yes: Depending where mets are, direct therapy can be offered resecting lung lesions locally, using chemoembolization for lesions in liver and hyperthermic perfusion for peritoneal seeding. Immunotherapy for VEGF and epidermal growth factors can also be employed as well as new drugs in Phase II-III such as mAbs targeting post translational modification of MUC5ac and CEAcam 5,6`oncofetal proteins/ ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Colon dr wrote me diltiazem gel in petroleum base 2% but pharmacies never heard of this drug. Is this available or need to be compounded?Any feedback
Are there any new cancer drugs for colon cancer spread to the liver? My father is very ill and needs help.
Consider new trials: If i were in your father's position, i would consider being in a research trial (if one is available) for metastatic colon cancer. None of the approved therapies for this is curative; they are all palliative. I would probably favor something with an immune-based approach rather than a cell poison, if any such trial is available. This is just a personal preference i'm voicing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

FOLFOX may be effective too after irinotecan has failed. Clinical trials are aslo available. ...Read more
Recent colonoscopy revealed - patch mucosal congestion. Any medicine/diet advise please? Symptoms are intermittent tightness ascending colon.
I would think the: description "patch mucosal congestion" would be an incidental, benign finding. It suggests a little swelling and perhaps prominent blood vessel in a small portion of the colon lining. This would not cause any symptoms, certainly not "tightness" in the colon (which I don't think you can feel). General colon cancer prevention is avoiding red/processed meats, refined grains/sugars, adding fiber. ...Read more

My gyn said take Advil (ibuprofen) to stop bleeding; my GI said large dose of Advil (ibuprofen) increases risks for colon bleeding. How can same drug have opposite effects?
Advil (ibuprofen): Perhaps you misinterpreted the instructions. Advil (ibuprofen) would be for pain or cramping. It is never used to 'stop bleeding'. Large and prolonged doses of drugs such as advil (ibuprofen) can lead to ulcers and GI bleeding, but not usually in low or temporary dosing. ...Read more
Will avastin (bevacizumab) increase survival significantly for metastic colon cancer with liver mets ?
Is it a risky drug
Slight benefit: Bevacizumab (Avastin (bevacizumab)) is one of those drugs that is extremely expensive and often has limited benefit. Patients with metastatic colon cancer who received Avastin (bevacizumab) plus chemotherapy lived 1-2 months longer on average than those receiving chemo only. Because it has marginal benefit but costs ~$30,000 the U.K. Health Service won't pay for it. It can cause skin rash, bleeding or wound healing problems. ...Read more

Colon surgery 7 days ago.Since yesterday have flatulence, stomach is big(have single kidney which has some problems).What is the solution?Any medicine?
Postop ileus: 7 days after colon surgery you most probably have a postop ileus. That is where the colon peristalsis has not returned trapping gas. Alot of issues postop contribute to this..Amount of anesthesia, narcotic pain meds and immobility. Staying on liquids/low residue diet and using daily non-magnesium) laxatives to wait out the process are the usual measure, but all should eventually come around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
