What does my colonoscopy report indicate?

I have had bowel problems for years. I m 74, diabetic. Had a colonoscopy last year, normal, but he said I have extra bowels. Took metformin for years. A nightmare with my bowels, pain like I was going to explode. Quit last fall. Refused to do that anymore. Put me on lantus. I m on 19 ml. What happens is I don t go, then have an all day episode starting with a normal BM, then keeps on with just having to go and a small amount comes out, all day. Get chills sometimes. Weak. This is happening more often. P.A. put me on a regimen of metamucil/miralax. Tried so hard to do this because I wanted something to finally work. Bulked up my stool, but then would do the same. Now I m worse. Finally wind up taking Imodium. Can t go anywhere. Usually every time I go to the store, I have to be sure to know where the bathroom is, then sometimes don t make it. Have learned to go fast at the first inkling. Help! No one can help me. A GI guy in Pueblo said, Take Imodium when you re going somewhere. Great. When it gets right down to my rectum, I cannot hold it no matter how hard I try to. I normally don t go for 3-4 days, sometimes longer, then I ll take metamucil or it will just start, and wind up going all day after the initial seemingly normal one.

The symptoms described by you seem to be that of irritable bowel syndrome.
You need to take the medication prescribed by your doctor.

Hi Dr. I had my first colonoscopy today and I am a 63 yr. old female. The dr. said that I had a floppy colon as well as inside hemorrhoids. I never knew this. I don t have any bowel issues or constipation. I take fiber capsules as well as try to eat a high fiber diet. Is there any thing to be concerned about?

I recently had a colonoscopy. My report states: Sections from the rectum biopsy specimens sho four fragments of rectal mucosa with increased inflammation including polysegmented neutrophils. Involvement of the glands by polysegmented neutrophils is seen although no well formed glandular absesses are present. Focal reactive atypia is identified. Sections from the colon polyp at the rectum specimen shows almost complete effacement of glandular tissue by a mixed acute and chronic inflammatory infiltrate. Abundant polysegmented neutrophils are seen envolving focal residual glands. Focal reactive atypia is identified. Please explain in laymen s terms.
