Can abdominal adhesions cause pain after colonoscopy?

Possibly: As the scope is advanced and air placed in the colon some degree of stretch and distortion can occur putting tension and possibly tearing adhesions in the abdominal cavity. These can cause pain and even potentially bleeding.If you are having pain especially with a fever or nausea, please call your endoscopist and discuss with them. They need to be aware to determine if a complication has occured.
