Colonoscopy on your period

Common Questions and Answers about Colonoscopy on your period


Avatar n tn Having thought about this, if it were me, I wouldn't want to have this done while on my period. You will have bloating and gas after your tests, and being on your period may just make you even more uncomfortabe. It's your call.
Avatar f tn Having my third colonscopy. I had one eight years ago and I cannot remember feeling so nervous. I had a polyp the first time and it was benign. The second colonoscopy was fine. I'm having a difficult time with feeling hungry and waiting to take the prep this afternoon. I've already started having diaherra because of my nerves. Guess I need to unload and find support on here. Looking forward to hearing from anyone.
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy last year and this year, both times a precancerous polyp was found and removed in the same area. First it isn't doesn't seem common to re-develop polyps over a 1 year period and for it to become precancerous in the same spot. The surgeon just said the surgeon in charge the first time probably missed it. Is this common?
212161 tn?1599427282 so sorry your having to go again, i dont even want to have the one much less 3 so close together . did they not say why? the new dr i go to has a place like surgery and they have a anthesoies (sp) like your haveing surgery and you are knocked out all the way.
Avatar f tn Did your doctor mention a colonoscopy? What does your doctor say? A lot of conditions should have been ruled out by the CT scans especially when done with contrast.
Avatar f tn Gail is absolutely correct, your neice needs to go back and calmly pitch a fit. You have to be your own advocate be agressive if she can't do it then you can be with her and be her advocate. The squeaky wheel gets the oil in the medicine world. The GYN has to without a doubt rule out any GYN issues causing these symptoms. Also, she does need to see a GI Dr to rule out any colon issues exspecially with blood in the stool. A cat scan could answer a buch of questions for both.
Avatar n tn At your age, a first colonoscopy is a good idea. You probably need to see the gastroenterologist before you have the colonoscopy and that will help determine whether your issues are likely to be intestinal. As you are also the right age for menopause, a visit to the gynecologist isn't a bad idea, either.
Avatar f tn I waited about 12 hours and after it got steadily worse I opted to go to a local urgent care center who did an initial exam, found no mass in my rectum area but suggested I follow up with my family physician for a colonoscopy. During this time I got my actual period - at which time any and all bleeding from my rectum has STOPPED.
Avatar f tn They can't see endo on an ultra sound. They have to give you surgery to go look for it. You very well could have a bunch of endo on your bowels. That sounds more likely since it acts up when you get your period. If your doctor isn't doing what you want, then go find someone who will. I have a lot of bowel problems and went and found a new doc who was willing to give me a lap before sending me off to a gastro doc. The first person I saw just wanted to do that.
Avatar m tn do I go back to the Dr and request another scope?if it was ulcerative colitis would that have shown up on my colonoscopy w/o symptoms present?from what I have read about UC it says people pass a lot of blood,wouldn't that have been picked up in the stool sample I gave in May?I also looked up IBS,but could not find joint pain.what should I be asking my dr. and what I should be expecting the Dr to do? what would you expect?I have begun taking a probiotic called Flora Q and Glucosamine .
Avatar f tn Then I went through a period where I was having mucus on the outside of the stool as well. I also feel like the amount of times I go to the bathroom started to increase. My doctor thought I had a fissure so he had me take miralax for awhile. When my stool wasn't formed I couldn't see any blood but I'm not sure if there really was any or not. I've also started have stools that were thinner since January. Not every time but a lot.
Avatar f tn Even though your fasting glucose on that particular test was 92, your A1c indicates that there are times that your blood sugar levels are much higher than normal. You should ask for a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT). GTT is a series of glucose tests done at 1 hr intervals, over a period of 3-4 hours, after drinking a very sweet, syrupy liquid. You should, also, talk to your doctor about getting a blood testing meter and keep track of your levels for a while, just to see what's going on.
Avatar m tn After words blood stops with his treatment and then after some time probably a month or two i found blood in my stool. I again go to the doctor and he again suggested colonoscopy but in colonoscopy veery thing was clear and all those hemmoroids has been healed. After that Right now i am still feeling that there are times when some red thing in my stool come somme red solid pieces or sometime very small specks of red thing.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to get pregnant on your period? It is only my second day, but I just want to make sure.
Avatar m tn Thank You for your advice, I have a colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow lets hope everything goes fine
Avatar f tn Would patches of inflammation shown on colonoscopy be due to IBS ? Anybody had this shown on colonoscopy and subsequently diagnosed as IBS rather than Crohn's?
Avatar m tn Is doing a colonoscopy very painful? How does it feel ?
Avatar f tn t lose trust in this test, this test could have saved your life. One thing is that next time you need to have another colonoscopy in a couple of years, you can ask for general anesthesia where you won't ever remember or feel anything during the procedure. Some people react differently to different sedation medications.
1699550 tn?1320286617 Yes, if you just had your colonoscopy this morning then this is pretty normal. It is usually just gas pains and once you pass gas, you'll feel better. However, if this continues then you should call up your doctor or go to an ER.
Avatar f tn They want to SEE via film, rather than with an object pushing through, what is going on in your bowels. Then they can give you medicines or more involved treatment to clear up or at least control any intestinal inflammation you got going on.
Avatar m tn if they are doing a scope on your large intestine than yes they look at all 3 sections of your colon.
Avatar f tn It is good that you've had your colonoscopy and that you won't need one again for 10 years. However, as I understand, it is used to check for polyps and tumors in the intestinal tract and not to diagnose IBS. How did your doctor arrive at an IBS diagnosis?
Avatar f tn Very severe major complications can be Bowel explosion,obstruction,allergy,dehydration or even stroke sometimes.Regarding your patient,report to your Doctor if he has been hospitalized after surgery.Medications are prescribed basing on the symptoms you stated.There is nothing much to be worried.It is your responsibility to mention any other severe symptoms may arise.
212161 tn?1599427282 If they take some biopsies during the procedure you may have some slight discomfort and maybe a little bit of blood on your stool. If they have taken biopsies, they will give you instructions on what to watch out for as far as possible problems and if there are any other restrictions/guidelines to follow.
