This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more

Is it normal for a doctor to you remove a patients ileocecal valve without consent? As well as no warning of what happens after this valve is gone?

Consent for ICV?: you presumably knew you were getting colon surgery, no? if you re-read your consent am pretty sure you'll find 'and related procedures' in there. i have no idea why you needed the surgery but can guarantee you that the surgeons would not have removed it for the fun of it. you may have a little looser BMs in the beginning, but your colon/small bowel will adjust. ...Read more

Can resection surgery at the junction of the small and large intestine cause chronic sibo? Assume the ileocecal valve was removed.

Can resection surgery at the junction of the small and large intestine cause chronic sibo? Assume the ileocecal valve was removed.

Define: I don't know what sibo is. In general, if the ileocecal valve is removed, some patients can have , at least temporarily, some looser stools or urgency. I usually suggest Imodium (loperamide) as needed, a good general diet, avoidance of large meals, and the inclusion of yogurt in the diet. If i'm missing the boat here, define sibo. Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed with impacted bowel at ileocaecal valve, and colonoscopy was not successful, now looking at surgical removal. What can I expect ?

Diagnosed with impacted bowel at ileocaecal valve, and colonoscopy was not successful, now looking at surgical removal. What can I expect ?

Depends on cause: It is nott clear what is causing the blockage at the ileocecal valve - tumor, inflammation with or without scarring, infection, intussusception, twist (volvulus). In any case, the surgical approaches include open surgery or minimally invasive (laparoscopic or robotic). More than likely, part of your ileum (distal small bowel) and part of the right colon, will be removed and the ends reconnected. ...Read more
