Avatar n tn I am 70 years old, very active, thin, and in incredibly good health except for a chance colonoscopy that found a kazillion polyps, albeit without any symptoms. What went wrong, how do polyps develop, how can I rid myself of them besides and operation?
398021 tn?1212590766 yesturday i had a colonoscopy which was the most painful experience in my life. At first i did not feel or even know who i was until the worst pain ever hit me they gave me more seditive and my blood pressure drop very low. No one explained why and i am very worried why this happened.
Avatar f tn I recently had 2 sessile serrated adenomas removed at the time of my colonoscopy. One polyp was 14 mm which was removed by "piecemeal" technique and the other polyp was 4 mm. Did this save my life?? My Dr recommended a FU colonoscopy in 3 years. I did not go back in 3 months as was recommended for Dr Oz. Do I now have a 15% chance of developing colon cancer? Thanks.

429647 tn?1249753429 I told my doctor about this and he took notes (this was the doctor who told me there was nothing they could do for me. The doctor who did the Colonoscopy recommended I get a Colonoscopy every six months to keep the adhesions from closing my colon, which was happening and was discovered during a colonoscopy. AH, WELL....

Avatar n tn We all knew something was wrong, but the final dx, if you will, came during a colonoscopy when the doctor stopped the procedure to ask if I wanted to continue. He said that the adhesions were colapsing my colon (thus IBS for real!)..but I will post the info in a moment. I just have to find it on my hard drive. Check with your doctor of course. I will be right back.
667611 tn?1226005294 You can try this technique that I learned from my PT for sciatica. Put your shoulder against a wall (opposite the side of the body that is in pain), place your feet together about one or two feet from the wall, shift your hip towards the wall you should feel a small pinch. Do that about five times a couple times a day or when symptoms are acting up.

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 n tn I recently underwent my first baseline colonoscopy. I was lightly sedated, but apparently I was a bit resistant to the scope entering any further than the first few inches of my rectum. It was reported that this was sufficient to determine all was well and it was also recommended I come back again in approximately five years. Do I just need to have more sedation next time or could I have a stenosis that caused me to subconsciously be resistive and uncomfortable. Should I be concerned?

212161 tn?1599427282 how many have had a colonoscopy and was it bad, the prep i ok with the putting to sleep i not like
568565 tn?1216785185 I am 37 yrs old. No history of colon cancer in the fam... However, recently one of my employee's husband went on a routine check up. They said since he is 47 he should have a colonoscopy... When he was done with that, he is now doing radiation and chemo... He has full blown cancer all over his pelvis... My gp advised with no history in my family, I am good to wait until I am 50 but if I did have a history of it, she'd recommend that I did it when I was 40...
Avatar n tn I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. My family has a history of polyps, thus I had my first colonoscopy at 37 (2 polyps) then at 46 (2 polyps) All benign thankfully. I've had complete annual physicals for the past 5 years and all good thankfully. I am due for a colonoscopy and am stressing about more polyps. Also have anxiety and that's flaring up because of the colonoscopy. Should I be concerned? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Had a colonoscopy August of 2017, it now being June 2018 with diverticula diagnosis and polyps removed. Problem that I’m having every since the procedure , I awake every morning having pains in my lower intestine more to the the left side . Could something have gone wrong ? I went to the ER at VA hospital were the procedure was done . Cat scan was completed and was told all appeared okay. What could be the cause.
Avatar n tn My son is scheduled for his 3rd colonoscopy and he is only 7. If you feel they need a colonoscopy (symptoms) I strongly suggest a second opinion. My son is being monitored for Gardner Syndrom/ FAP. In certain situations a colonoscopy is warranted, because in some situations a diagnosis may be too late in coming. Granted not knowing is alot less stressful in certain situations, but when you weigh the possible outcomes if we were not told, I would rather deal with the stress now.
Avatar n tn I am going to have a colonoscopy this week should I stop taking my hydro and soma before the procedure?
