Have ulcerative colitis in sigmoid and ascending colon/cecum (just confirmed by colonoscopy). Will enema treat this (allergic to NSAIDs)?
Consider allergy ref: Thanks for your question. Depending on the NSAID allergy, sometimes it can be desensitized through introduction of small amounts initially, then gradual increase in dose under supervision by an allergy specialist. However, would discuss the side effects/risks/benefits with a specialist.
Mild diffuse thickening of rectum and sigmoid colon--suggestive of infective-inflammatory colitis, what to do?
CT scan finding: This sounds like a result from a ct scan. Okay to talk with your doc about this result. Depending on your symptoms, age, and history it may not have much meaning. However, it may need further evaluation, colonoscopy, lab tests, if you have lower colon symptoms, blood in stool, weight loss, change in bowels, fever, pain. Be well.
Had ulcerative colitis for 15 yrs (confirmed by sigmoid and biopsies). Just had 1st colonoscopy, shows granular, loss of vascular pattern and minor ulcers in ascending colon, cecum, sigmoid and colon. Is this UC or chrons?
Ulcerative colitis: All of the biopsies from colonoscopy showed inflammatory changes consistent with ulcerative colitis. The later is part of the spectrum of IBD but involves only the mucosal layer of the bowel. Chrons disease is a form of IBD that involves all layers of the bowel and can be recognized on scans of the bowel or deeper layers of bowel on bx.
Colonoscopy showed an area of mild congested mucosa in recto-sigmoid colon. Does it sound like ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease?
Can colitis cause similar SX to appendicitis? CT WO contrast showed mild thickenin transverse colon diverticula sigmoid. 9 months on and off RLQ pain.
Yes: Yes certainly the two conditions can be very similar and difficult to tell apart. See a primary care doctor general surgeon or gastroenterologist for specific diagnosis and treatment
Ct scan showed diverticulitis and sigmoid colon iflamation I'm freaking out the discharge paper said diverticulitis posible colitis and ibd?
Colitis (sigmoid) adverse reaction to Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and/or Flagyl, are there alternative courses of treatment that maybe aren't so harsh?
Tummy Ache: Focal colitis is a general term for inflammation of a particular area of colon. Usually this is caused by food-borne illness or inflammatory bowel disease (like crohn's disease). Very rarely serious pathology like mesenteric ischemia can show a focal colitis but you would be extremely ill. Typically a colitis will resolve on its own, but can occasionally need antibiotics.
Depends: If it is just spastic colitis, then it is just that--the irritable bowel. Infectious colitis--antibiotic treatments and you are done. If you have ulcerative colitis. You have to deal with the disease itself and the risk of colon cancer, which increases over time. If you have severe disease, you may be recommended to have colon removed after 8-10 yrs...It is tough. Good luck...See 1 more doctor answer
