Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy tylenol

colon

I had a colonoscopy yesterday and since then have had a low grade temperature and a heavy feeling in my lower right abdomen now its the day after and I am since experiencing swelling in the lower right abdomen. The pain is not constant but when it hits its sharp like someone is pinching me and I have an overall feeling of just not feeling well. Worse than when I went in. Any help would be appreciated I called my doctors and a nurse told me the doctor would call us back.
I would say you should definatly check with your doctor, but I just had a colonoscopy..and I was able to take tylenol. Nothing else though.
My bowel didn't run clear until my last movement right before I left for the colonoscopy. And I had to clean myself out for 48 hours. It takes a lot of time and fluid to clean your system from your throat to your anus. So be patient and don't worry. I was hungry too and lost 9 pounds, but you get to eat as soon as it's over.
I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy tomorrow. I have my period with very bad cramps. Can I take a midol or advil for the cramps or will that interfere with the test? Thanks.
Hello, Next week I'm going in for a colonoscopy and the instructions I need to follow says that I'm not to take any asprin 7 days prior to the test. I take 1 vicoden pill in the morning for my arthritis, It's 7.5/750 the extra strengh I guess. If I don't take the pill I can't get out of bed sand walk without severe pain. My question is this, what harm will I do to myself if I continue to take the 1 pill a day and then go for the colonoscopy. Thank you.
I'm male 250 lbs. went on mostly liquid diet. I am urinating ok. going in for colonoscopy (?) tomorrow. Is it likely that I caused my own problems ?
Post colonoscopy problems by Ted174 Tags: distension, post colonoscopy, pressure, diagnosis, Dysbiosis 2 days later my abdomin started to distend. Within 2 weeks I went from 34" waist to 42" and lost 12 lbs. Have severe pressure in belly and diaphragm. Hard to breathe. Had ultrasound, full blood labs, x-rays and EGD. Still no diagnosis! What's wrong with me? Could it be Dysbiosis? And what would be the remedy? It's like my life has been taken away. I have no energy and am in pain.
Kathy, I often think of a line from The Devil Wears Prada, "I'm just one stomach flu away from my ideal weight," when I do a colonoscopy prep...except I always feel like I'm just one colonoscopy prep away from my ideal weight.
Colonoscopy.. will it hurt? Advised not to be put under due to blood pressure and allergy issues. What will it feel like. Is it painful. Do they put people out because of pain or just to make it easier on the doctor. Besides if you move you can do damage this I know very well. Just wondering if anyone had it done awake. Kinda scared it might hurt like a root canal at the dentist with out novacaine. Thank you.
which is my only vice. I have my colonoscopy scheduled for the 19th of December and doctor wants to run a tube down my esophagus to see what else is going on in there right after that; should I do that test before the colonoscopy? What else could it be and should I be doing anything else? I also had an abdominal ultrasound done last week and everything turned out normal. I carry arounf 40-50 pounds of stenographer equipment everyday, so just wondering if I could have ruptured something.
) During the gastroscopy the Doc took 2 biopsies, one from the stomach and one from the esophageal _ _ (?). Does anyone know if this is just standard, or did they think they found something? I wasn't thinking clear enough to ask, and I have to wait at least 14 days for the results. Now I feel like c-rap. I can.t get my hands and feet warm. I am off my usual timetable for meds, not sure if this is a factor. I'm supposed to take Rebif tonight, but I'll pass till tommorow.
It seems alot of people mention taking tylenol. I thought tylenol was not good for your liver. Am i mistaken? My doctor mentioned advil for joint pain.
I am a 29 yo female who has been dealing with chronic pelvic pain. On Thursday, Dec. 11, I had bloody, loose stool and went to an urgent care facility. Though I'd had the bloody stool four times prior to checking in, I could not produce a stool sample while at the clinic. I was in severe pain and felt terrible pressure, but the only "sample" I could produce was a small, mucus-like blood clot on the toilet tissue.
In the meantime I had been in and out of the ER, for hours at a time, a lot because of a sick friend. I had also a few weeks ago once took motrin and tylenol for headaches. I take Lopressor (for MVP and SVT) and Xanax daily for anxiety but do not smoke, drink alcohol or use any form of drugs, nor have any history of liver or kidney problems of any sort.
I just had a colonoscopy following continuing worsening diahrea, 6 - 10 times a day, totally yellow liquid, sometimes even awakening me at night, and very small amounts of rectal bleeding (found only on toilet paper). Anyway the colonoscopy showed several areas that were very red and raw and inflamed. I have a prior history of NSAID induced gastric ulcer (8 months ago) and take cytotec with nsaid therapy to protect stomach.

My mom is 66 years old and has had digestive/constipation problems for many years. She had a perforated ulcer 2 years ago and 2/3 of her stomach was removed during surgery. After mowing her lawn in Nov. 2008, she has had crippling, cramping pain ranging from somewhat mild to excruciating (going to the ER) pain on both sides of her abs. After doing some research, the pain seems to be located in her large intestine.
today I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. Everything was good up until he scoped my esophogus,,,I had bulging veins there...OMG Iam so excessively frantic. I am scheduled for a liver ultrasound to rule out chirrosis. OMG I am so scared. Healso took a biopsy he saidit was to see if here was inflamation.
She had a indoscope and a colonoscopy yesterday. They found an hiatal hernia in the duodonum (or there about), and one polip in the colon. The Gastro Dr said she should have an ERCP. He is recommending a #2 Gastro Dr. who is a 7 hr. round trip for us. Our fear of the procedure and the trip have led us to delay the ERCP. We will monitor her liver enzyems (which were elevated and started all this research and are normal now). As long as the AST and ALT are normal we will postpone the ERCP.
I was being pre-screened for a colonoscopy last week. First you sit through a presentation then you meet with a nurse. At the end of the session you can schedule a colonoscopy if you want one. I wrote that I was HepC positive on the information sheet and that in the last 30 days all I'd taken was Tylenol. When the nurse saw that, she gave me a lecture in a round-about way. Said her husband had a friend who had HepC and nearly died and then got a liver transplant and is now HepC free.
I am terrified of taking any pills, save the likes of Tylenol. For example for years I have had a massive headache disorder and have graciously accepted various prescriptions but secretly I have hidden away the pills untouched or just threw out the prescription. An even bigger phobia of mine is sedation. Conscious sedation scares me virtually equally as general anesthia.
Ive been to the er due to dehydration and pain and waited to meet this dr. for over two weeks. I went to gastro dr. and had a colonoscopy last thursday........Whats next.....Im desperatly in pain....and want to feel good again.
My 8 year old son has been suffering from severe abdominal pain, headaches, eye pressure, and even back pain just about every night. He just went through a endoscopy, colonoscopy, xray, and sonogram. For the most part, the endoscopy and the colonoscopy went very well and the GI Dr. had no real concerns only that she saw in the xray that the bile is backing up into the stomach. This was the same thing she told me in 2005 and prescribed Prevacid and now prescribed Nexium.
I take vitamins and have for many years. The only heart pill I am on is Toprol. I only take a little tylenol when I have pain. I went to the bathroom 3 times this morning and then in the afternoon one more time, but this time I noticed a little blood in the toilet and on the first wipe with the toilet paper. I have never had blood in my toilet before. Please tell me what you think. Could it just be that my anus was irritated from the earlier bathroom uses?
About 1 month ago, she was to have a routine colonoscopy. The gastroenterologist was unable to complete the test since there were several 'tunnels' and he did not want to perforate the intestine. She obtained a CT Scan which revealed a large mass in the pancreatic tail. No further treatment was recommended. Could the accidental fall have caused this pancreatic mass imaging? At this time, she has no real discomfort. She is taking Tylenol 4 times a day as a preventative for pain.
Hi, I have chronic pain in my lower right side & have had for about 5 years. I was hospitalized once for it & was told I possibly had Chron's Disease, then after all the tests were ran, it ended up being basically diagnosed as IBS. I had a colonoscopy 8yrs ago & had a pollop removed. I have had my gallbladder & appendix removed. I3 years ago, my ovary had been adhered to my colon, which my dr. thought was a cyst on my ovary.
She has had a ct scan with contrast and xray dye, a colonoscopy, and abdominal ultrasound. She can't hardly walk, sleep, or anything because the pain is so sharp. She states it feels like knives stabbing her in the left side. She is very weak, pale, and gets dizzy from time to time. Nothing has showed up on any of the test she has had. I am at my wits end. She cries everyday. She eats tylenol and ibuprofen like candy which is not good for her stomach but i don't know what else to do.
