Avatar m tn The spasms (muscle cramping) does hurt. For women it is like a period I could imagine. Cramping is no fun. Yea, I'll take a Benedryl or something. I won't let the doctor give me any medication however. I can take it my self with their permission before the exam. Too bad we all can't just take a shot of rum!!!!!!!! That would do it for sure and be out of you in time to drive home. Wait empty stomach. Make that a 1/4 shot of rum.
Avatar f tn It isn't that bad its only one day and a one time thing usually u don't have to do it for a while. I mean it does suck but its necessary if you are having problems or need it which is usually 50 yrs old and over... I am 24 I did it when I was 23 hoping I would find an answer to my IBS and stomach problems as well as my acid reflux. Basically found bad acid reflux but if the doctor recommends it I would say do it the worst part is drinking and constantly using the bathroom beforehand.
Avatar n tn Hi, how does one go about finding a doctor who will perform a colonoscopy with no sedation? I want to find one that does not try to convince me to have sedation for the procedure.
Avatar m tn My bowels are not as regular either. I have had a colonoscopy in December and nothing there.
Avatar f tn Please get that colonoscopy. If colon cancer runs in your family you need to get a colonoscopy regardless of having any symptoms even if you are only 31.
Avatar m tn Is doing a colonoscopy very painful? How does it feel ?
1074308 tn?1256830824 I really think you need to go to a doctor and get checked out, to make sure you don't have anything serious or even if it isn't that serious, to find out what it is and how to treat it.
107693 tn?1252864443 My gastroenterologist will not schedule a colonoscopy because i have sleep apnea. He needs a clearence from my pulmonary doctor. Is this the protocol?
Avatar f tn I have just had a colonoscopy does anyone know what it means if you have rectal erythema ?
Avatar n tn This is an alternative to the colonoscopy. You do it at home by basically using a kit. It contains a liner you put in the toilet, you go and then drop a few provided drops into the liner, tie it off and put it in the provided container to send to the lab. It's 95 % effective. However, if it is positive, you have to have a regular colonoscopy. You know that this time around, you already have a polyp. https://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn I recently had a colonoscopy and everything was fine except for hemorrhoid or 2. Ever since then there have been times when I've noticed blood after having a bowel movement. Could the colonoscopy have irritated the hemorrhoid?
Avatar m tn Hello, It is important to clinically correlate any test results. A liver haemangioma is a benign hypervascular liver lesion. It is usually diagnosed as an accidental finding. You may need repeated follow ups for your liver haemangioma.Acidity and bloating can be due to acid peptic disease. An upper GI endoscopy and follow up under a gastroenterologist will be helpful. A thorough evaluation will be extremely helpful. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn My question is can i get a colonoscopy if im a virgin? And without telling anyone im 21 so and i dont have an insurance does anyone know how much it will cost?

Avatar f tn Does it hurt when you have a bowel movement? Just asking because of the colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn my doctor wants to try a very powerful laxative- if i still pass narrow stools or see blood he's going to send me to a specialist- i also have some rectal itching which added with the narrow stool and blood i know could be something as minor as a hemmroid. i don't believe i need a referal for my insurance to cover a colonoscopy since on paper i have some symptoms of colon cancer.
Avatar n tn Hi all, I have Anal Fissure for about 7months now and it doesn't seem to go away. I have got to a point where it doesn't hurt after bm but does still bleed. Is there any cream you could recommend me using?

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
Avatar m tn s going on. Given my age, and a clean colonoscopy and blood tests, I realize it is very unlikely I have a tumor, but it's something that it always in the back of my head. Thanks so much for the reply, I'll get a second opinion right away.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the gastroenterology community! I would not recommend researching "what can go wrong in a colonoscopy." Yes, things do go wrong, but in over 99% of the cases, everything is fine. I (and most other people) will tell you that the worse part of a colonoscopy is the prep because it tastes bad and because you have to spend all day having diarrhea. I had a colonoscopy at 16 and I was totally fine. Do you know what type of sedation you are going to get?
Avatar f tn I found that simple walking does a good job too - there are so many variables as well, I hope you get some relief.
