Colon problems

Posted , 2 users are following.

A colonoscopy was attempted but couldn't be completed due to a loop in the lower intestine. Dr. sent me for a barium enema, which was not successful either. Next he ordered a COLOGUARD Test, which came back positive. NOW, he's ordering a Capsule Endoscopy. I'm having no symptoms. I have ordered a FIT test for comparison. Five years ago, I had a polyp removed during a colonoscopy. What is your opinion in my situation?

    What condition did the cologuard test come back positive for? If you are having no symptoms, why are you having all these tests? I can't really advise because don't know what your situation is and what you are facing.

    SINCE A COLONOSCOPY IS SUGGESTED AFTER HAVING A POLYP REMOVED 5 YEARS AGO, i SUBMITTED TO ONE THAT WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL, ALONG WITH A FAILED BARIUM ENEMA. THE NEXT MOVE WAS THE COLOGUARD TEST. THEY DID NOT TELL ME WHAT I TESTED POSITIVE FOR. I WILL CALL AND FIND THAT OUT. I WAS IN SUCH SHOCK AT SEEING THE BIG WORD "POSITIVE", I DID NOT THINK TO ASK, PLUS THE DOCTOR SEEMED IN A BIG HURRY TO DISMISS ME. I DONT WANT TO GO THRU ANYMORE TESTS IF I CAN HELP IT.

    THANK YOU.
