Doctor saw fecal matter in my appendix during colonoscopy.

Customer Question
Doctor saw fecal matter in...
Doctor saw fecal matter in my appendix during colonoscopy . The kicker is I had appendix out almost 34 years ago . Sent me for cat scan and kidney stone showed - which I think is actually the fecolith that the gastronologist saw during colonoscopy . Could he have seen this so called kidney stone ? I tend to believe the camera and live eye . He indicated prior to ct scan and after colonoscopy and my reaction that I don't have and appendix that it should be cut to the cecum - my research suggested a stump left behind that is collecting this fecal matter - I do not want this storm brewing in what I thought was removed years ago - why didn't that show on ct scan ? He saw what he saw .

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
