Upper Gi Series With Small Bowel Follow Through
Why did radiologist push on my small intestine, spleen, and gallbladder (while looking at screen) at the end of upper GI series ("barium swallow")?
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
Severe chronic constipation colonoscopy/egd nego same with c, small bowel series showed slow colon , fast small intestine , is this from my dysautonomia?
Does an MRI enterography also visualise the large intestine and other abdominal organs along with the small intestine?
Yes: Bowel obstruction can cause lab changes in the long term and a duodenal erosion unless is bleeding would not cause a significant lab change. I am not sure that the information you provide is specific enough to understand the whole picture. If you are home, most likely you do not have a bowel obstruction.

Stool in small Intestine means obstruction?Ct shows intussusception & stool in small intestine ,stool seen in exploratory surgery,surgeon did nothing
Does fluid and stool filled loops in small bowel w abnormal gas pattern w no inflammation or obstruction a sign of ileus?
Possibly: Ileus refers to disruption in normal propulsive activity of the GI tract. The bowel dilates with gas and stool and there is no evidence of bowel sounds when auscultating the abdomen. Present usage restricts the term to disruptions caused by the failure of peristalsis, rather than by mechanical obstruction usually induced by a parasympathetic response due to surgery, infection or medications ...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
