Adult, MR Enterography show Jejunum loop is dilated, mild Ileus possible,Had multiple transient intussusception in that area before what causes it ?
Surgical consult: I feel it's important for you to be evaluated by an abdominal surgeon for advice. It's likely that repeated intususceptions have somehow disturbed the motility of the duodenum. I don't think this is simply a localized Ileus. I'm concerned about the dilated loop which may become increasingly symptomatic or worsen. ...Read more
What causes adult (Male) transient small bowel intussusception , multiple severe episodes during 3 years time frame ?
Uncertain cause: It's unclear why some people are prone to episodes of intussusception. It's possible that a low fiber diet is promoting dysmotility or making it difficult for the colon to transit stool. Consider increasing the fiber content of your diet by eating a pound of vegetables and fruits a day and transitioning some/most of your proteins to beans and grains, for longevity and improved colon health. ...Read more

"mild bowel wall thickening involve sigmoidcolon might reflect relative underdistention. less likely inflammation". is cancer? no real gastro symptoms
Typical scenario: Since we don't do any kind of bowel prep any more for routine CT scans, this kind of scenario is common. If the radiologist thinks the bowel looks a little too think, they will likely put in a statement like that as a hedge against potential pathology (and lawsuit). The thing is, could it be cancer? Yes, but the likelihood is low. If it was me, I would ignore it unless you develop symptoms. ...Read more
Mesenteric adenitis: Maybe. Mesenteric adenitis (enlargement of lymph nodes in abdominal mesentery) is commonly seen in conditions that mimic acute appendicitis. When accompanied by inflammation of the ileum, & crohn's disease has been excluded, consider bacterial infection caused by yersinia enterocolitica, campylobacter, salmonella. Adenitis may also reflect non-gi inflammatory processes in the abdomen. ...Read more
