Can you help me decipher my doctor's handwriting?

I did a colonoscopy and this was her report. She told me my colon is normal but here I see it's only normal until a certain region? What does the paper say?

    The writing says "Caceum region" which is where they usually terminate a colonoscopy. That said, this isn't the results of the colonoscopy- rather this is what is known as a soap report.

    I read doctors writing all the time, i admit it, they get lazy, it look like rectum region to be honest. I don’t know your doctor so maybe her writing is just different than what i’m used to but i am used to doctors writing double letters

    colonoscopy or whatever medical test reports

    should always be computer printed and only

    the doctor signs it so everybody can understand it

    It says: 'Normal colonoscopy until caecum region'.

    (Cecum and caecum mean the same).

    Might be a strangely written Cecum region.

    There's the Cecum, Ascending, Transverse, Descending and Sigmoid to pick from. Look at how your doctor writes "C". Ask the doctor what it means.

    your doctor said its normal they are the most trustworthy people alive today they are not angling for a scam details are symptoms that may help others if there are future problems and obviously the doctor doesn't forsee any problem now enjoy your life you can make yourself ill by worrying unnecessarily its OK have a nice day be happy

    It looks to me the same way - normal until the jejunum region. That seems to me like an odd way of describing a location, unless the abnormal area included the entire transverse colon and the nearby portions of the ascending and descending colon.

      The jejunum is not part of the *large* intestine, which is what a colonoscopy examines.

    It might be that not another colonoscopy until the rectum region is checked.

      That word does not look like "rectum."
