What does it mean when they say small amount of free fluid in the pelvis with possible thickening of the rectosigmoid colon . and there is suture within the right lower quadrant. bladder is under distended limiting evaluation. please say in so i can understand what they are saying and then i can understand why we are rushing a colonscopy... this all happened with a two week weight loss of over 10 pounds.

FREE FLUID IN PELVIS WITH THICKENING OF RECTOSIGMOID WITH A WEIGHTLOSS MEANS YOU HAVE A SERIOUS DISEASE IN THE ABDOMAN. FREE FLUID WITHTHIS KIND OF FEATURES OCCURS IN CANCERS OF ABDOMAN, ABDOMINAL T.B., PELVIC ABSCESS, AND PID, ENDOMETRIOSIS IN FEMALES AND SOME OTHER RARER CAUSES BUT MALIGNANCY AND T.B. NEED TO BE RULED OUT FIRST.
SO DON'T THINK OF COLONOSCOPY PLAESE UNDERGO IT ASAP- IF YOUR CLINICIAN ASKS FOR BIOPSY AGREE FOR IT OUTRIGHTLY.
HERE DELAY MAY MEAN DEATH.
