Black 109 I'm so wondering what the Dr. did wrong that might be causing so much irritation. He/she must have been a really lousy practitioner. I've had three colonoscopies and a sigmoidoscopy (which wasn't too pleasant, but with no appreciable after-effects). None of the colonoscopies produced any irritations of any kind...ever, and during the last two, some polyps were removed and cauterized. But I know that the Dr. who did mine is a highly skilled technologist. In your case, it sounds like you had an amateur, or some extra work might have been done on you. Here's hoping you're healed by now.View Thread
I've had two colonoscopies, and both were practically painless post-procedure. So, unless you had a totally inept physician administering the procedure, I think your pains are related to something else. Have you let the person who did the work know of your problems???View Thread
