Why Do You Need A Colonoscopy After Abnormal Pap
Can't bm w/o suppository for 9 wks..nothing found w colonoscopy, waiting on CT results..could this be related to my abnormal pap/ASCUS?
No: Your bowel movements are not related to your cervix. Please try drinking enough water so that your urine is dilute and watery, to ensure proper hydration. You should also try a fiber laxative such as Metamucil. It may take a while for your bowel to get rid of the habit of suppository. ...Read more
8 months post c-sec and pressure in lower abd. Norm pelvic ult. Norm CT abd/pelvis & colonoscopy & norm pap, feels 'gassy' like pressure all the time?
Left lower abd pain. Pap, blood, colonoscopy, stool, CT scan normal. Left arm pit pain, left neck node swollen and throbbing tongue. Ovar ca poss?
Complicated: There are so many symptoms and signs that are probably not connected, i would continue working with your doctor or get a second opinion. You have a ct scan with is neg. I assume it is of your pelvis. This would at least give us reassurance of no pelvic mass such as a ovarian cancer. Left lower quadrant pain could be, muscle, ureter, bladder, uterus, colon, hip, kidney. ...Read more
I had a lower colonoscopy and the doctors found nothing abnormal.I still have a fair amount of blood after going the toilet.Should I go back ?
Colorectal Surgeon: The bleeding you describe (despite a normal colonoscopy, which does not view the anal canal well) is most likely the result of either internal hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, both of which are often easily treated. I would strongly advise you to see a colorectal surgeon who can diagnose the problem and most likely treat it with either medication or a simple office procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have had an abnormal result from my pap test. I would like some more information about the procedure needed to remove the bad cells.
Just follow?: At age 23, it would be unusual to require any procedure to remove bad cells from the cervix. If your doctor is recommending this, it may be helpful to get a 2nd opinion. You can repost your question with the pathology report from your colposcopy & cervical biopsies included in the question. If you're a smoker, stop now. Smoking decreases the chance that you'll clear this without treatment. ...Read more
I had a pap after having abnormal cells last time. 8 hours later blood gushed out with blobs and now the next day its happened again. Should i worry?
Sensitive: Sometimes one's cervix can be extra sensitive and the brush doctors use to take your pap can be irritating to the cervical tissue. I typically warn my patients that they may see some bleeding after a pap smear. I'm guessing that you might also have a cervical ectropion. I would make another appt with your doctor just to have your cervix checked. Gushes of clots aren't normal. ...Read more
After having a pap smear i was told i had abnormal cells. Can anyone explain this to me in more detail?
ASCUS: Abnormal cells in pap smears = atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ascus). This means that there are some "funny looking" cells that are not otherwise classifiable. Usually your doctor will recommend some sort of follow up including a repeat pap smear and/or colposcopy if this particular finding keeps recurring. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
