Alternate To Colonoscopy Through The Anus
I had my first routine colonoscopy at 54 years old, and I have had intense itching of the anus since the colonoscopy. Can you tell me the cause?
Inflammation: It would help to know how long this has been going on, but I can give you some generalities. The scope itself can cause irritation or very minor injury; the lubricant may be something your skin is sensitive to; you may have some hemorrhoids that the scope caused to "act up." Generally, doctors schedule a follow up to discuss the results. I recommend you bring this up at that time. ...Read more
Can colonoscopy aggrivate internal hemerhoids? I had no pain or external before procedure. I had pain 6 weeks in anus after, I have had piles 4 3 months
