A 27-year-old female asked:

Yes.....and no: While your pancreatitis was due to gallstones and/or the ERCP used to clear your bile duct ......alcohol is a common cause of pancreatitis......but usually in large quantities. Moderation is key....would not exceed 2 drinks daily more than 2-3 times per week........if that.
A 35-year-old male asked:

Bleeding: Most likely hemorrhoids. Diverticular bleeding is painless and rather large in volume. It would scare you if you never saw it before. Glad to know you had a colonoscopy to work it up.
A 23-year-old male asked:

Anal fissure: They cannot be fixed by a colonoscopy. What they are likely looking for is to rule out inflammatory bowel disease as a cause of your fissure. They are generally treated conservatively with stool softeners, laxatives and fiber, if not healing then there are medications and creams that can be used to relax the anal sphincter to promote healing. Last resort is surgery.
