Partial Block After Colonoscopy
I'm having RUQ pain after gallbladder removal. I'm scheduled for exploratory surgery next week. Will this show a sphincter of oddi dysfunction?
I do not think so.: In present time , GI work up is less invasive . Considering your age Expl Surgery is not standard of care for sphinctre dysfunction , which is rare and can create more problems in future . ...Read more
Had small bowel resection (5ft),colon blockage removed,appendectomy,and hernia repair done in emerg surgery.Tons of side effects 3months later. Help?
Side Effects: The answer to your questions depends on the side effects you are having. Small bowel resection can affect stool transit time as well as nutrient absorption. Adhesions from any abdominal procedure may be a source of discomfort for some. I suggest you speak to your primary care doc about your symptoms to identify the most likely source of your symptoms. From there you can make a plan. ...Read more
If patient had total colectomy with Ileostomy placement, can they have a surgical procedure involving ileum to sigmoid/left colon several yrs later.
YES: if one performs a left colectomy, even extending the dissection below peritoneal reflection, as long as there is a rectal stump, 1-2 cm above the levators, proximal bowel can be reanastomosed. One can creates a pouch from the proximal bowel to make anastomosis easier and have the pouch act as a partial reservoir for the liquid feces in the ileum that will be used for anastomosis ...Read more
Stage iii-b crc removed surgically 2 weeks ago, 3 days ago surgery was performed to remove post op adhesion blocking the small intestines, suggested chemo is capeox. When should treatment begin?
Adjuvant chemo: Adjuvant chemo for stage iii colorectal cancer would be combination of 5fu/oxaliplatin or capecitabine/oxaliplatin. Chemo can be started as soon as you are recovering well from your surgery. It can be started 4-6 weeks from surgery-providing that all surgical site is healed. Good luck. It is not a common thing to have a colon cancer at age of 30- thus a genetic counselling/testing is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hysterectomy w/ posterior repair: 2009.
Laproscopic bowel resection: 2011. Now same bowl symptoms as before. Probability of enterocele recurrence?
The same polyps symptoms reocurred 3 months after the polyps have been removed after a colonoscopie. Does a colonoscopie need to be done immediately?
Not necessarily: If you had a thorough exam and all polyps were removed 3 months ago, and symptoms have recurred, doubtful due to new polyps as they do not grow that fast. Your symptoms were probably not due to the polyps and as yet have not been correctly diagnosed. I would discuss with your endoscopist ...Read more
SURGEONS: If a patient who had a Subtotal Colectomy w/Ileostomy placement 13yrs ago, resulting in short bowel syndrome & frequent loose bowels, but was wanting an Ileostomy Reversal, what would do & Y?
Difficult question: to answer without knowing much more details. Why was that surgery done? What is the remaining anatomy? Remaining colon or rectum in place? Reconnecting an ileostomy after 13 years might not be well tolerated with resulting frequent diarrhea, poor anal muscle control, anal irritation & the surgery would not correct a short bowel condition. Need many more details to try to answer this question. ...Read more
If a patient had subtotal colectomy w/Ileostomy placement resulting in short bowel syndrome for over 13yrs, could they have their Ileostomy reversed?
It depends : This is a difficult question to answer without more data. Assuming they had some sort of small bowel resection and truly has "short gut," then reconnecting to a rectal stump will likely not improve the condition, as the rectum does not provide adequate nutritional absorption (mainly just water resorption). This needs to be discussed with a general surgeon along with radiographic evaluation. ...Read more
Chance of developing colon cancer 20 months after colonoscopy removal 5mm polyp removed. Having ct scan with and without contrast for left quad pain
See below: If the colonoscopy was done properly, you are very unlikely to have colon cancer 20 months after the procedure. 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 more
