    Default stool in colon

    That would depend, is it impaction or constipation? I would get clarification.

    I have another question...what is the cpt code for cystoscopy, cystoscopy with retrograde pyleogram, cystoscopy with stent removal, and cystoscopy with stone basketing with stone extraction.

    I used code for cystoscopy 52000, for cystoscopy with retrograde pyleogram=52005, code for cystoscopy with stent removal=52310, and cystoscopy with stone basketing and with stone extraction=52352....is this correct.
