The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more
Ctscan : ovoid water attenuation struture in luq located between small bowel loops and the splenic flexure. Any ideas? Worried, i see GI in 1 week
Plz See Surgeon: This sounds like a cyst within the mesentery of the intestine, yet, this is but one small piece of the puzzle: what size is it, is it causing compression of any adjacent organs, is it causing symptoms, etc. In general, we have 3 options: leave it alone, remove it, or stick a needle in it. This decision is best made with a surgeon rather than a GI doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can mild thickening and fat in wall of large bowel including sigmoid colon and right colon on CT scan be normal?
Yes: While fat within the intestinal wall is often thought of as a reliable marker for inflammatory bowel disease, studies have shown that in the absence of clinical or other radiologic evidence of inflammatory bowel disease, the presence of fat in the intestinal wall may represent a normal finding. There is also thought to be some association with obesity. ...Read more

What does "Bowel gas pattern is abnormal with dilated gas-filled small bowel, mostly in the left upper quadrant. Gas is present within the colon" mean?
Xray read: It means that there is a suggestion on plain film of the abdomen that there could be a small bowel obstruction/ partial obstruction or ilieus (temporary paralysis of the bowel). Depends on the clinical situation but that there is gas in the colon is somewhat assuring. Ask the doctor who ordered the film to go over the findings with you. ...Read more

Unfortunately, there's not much you can do with these other than excision, sometimes requiring removal of the adjacent intestine. Please see a surgeon with extensive laparoscopic experience--they can help you sort this out and decide if surgery is needed. ...Read more
Not the hernia: Usually, the hernia itself is a defect in the abdominal wall. The wall is made of muscle and fascia, so the defect is just an opening in the sheet of muscle/fascia that is not normally there. Organs and items usually contained in the abdomen can 'poke out' through the abnormal opening ; can even get stuck. The hernia would not change positions, but the items poking out into the hernia could change. ...Read more
