Colonoscopy Causing Vaginal Problems
I had a colonoscopy and polyp removed 3days ago. I have had thick brown vaginal discharge since. Is this normal.
No: Colonoscopy has nothing to do with vaginal situations. If no tumor was detected perforating anterior wall of rectum into vagina, which I suspect is not the case, then vaginal discharge is uterine in origin. Blood that remains in utero and passes to the vagina will decompose and appear as a brown discharge. One must examine the uterus by ultrasound to see what the endometrial lining is like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Common 2 feel ur own cervix or uncommon? I doubt prolapse, what am i feeling if not cervix? Found 2 bumps on what i thought was my cervix, if vaginal tumors wouldn't recent colonoscopy catch this ?
Probably normal: It is possible to feel your cervix, even without prolapse. If you've had vaginal deliveries, that will change the shape of your cervix. Also, you can have benign mucous cysts, called nabothian cysts, on the cervix. If you've recently had a colposcopy then whatever your feeling is likely benign. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Versed will cause no problems. Of critical importance is pre-procedure preparation. If you have not had surgery to completely remove the tumor, adequate treatment with Alpha blockers (ex. Phentolamone) followed by adequate beta receptor blockade (ex. Propranolol) is absolutely crucial prior to undergoing any procedure. If you have a procedure inadequately treated, severe hypertension can result. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If neither a colonoscopy or upper endoscopy detects a physiological problem, could the cause of constipation lie with the small bowel?
Wrong approach, Jim: There are a variety of causes of constipation. Only in a small minority of cases does endoscopy on either end show the cause. If drinking plenty of water, a stool softener, and roughage in the diet doesn't help, then it's time for a thyroid check, porphyria screen, Chagas? dairy / cheese in diet? meds? Pb poisoned? functional / irritable bowel syndrome? Read up on these. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son was told after a colonoscopy, that his small intestines were on one side of his body and his colon on the other. His birth weight was only 4lbs and 5 oz. Born only two weeks early he was considered full term. Can this cause problems later?
Hard to know: The colon is part of your intestine so i'm not sure what your son was really told. I suspect that he was told he has a malrotation (though this is difficult to tell from colonoscopy). This is a dangerous condition and needs to be surgically corrected asap- to be able to say more i'd need to know the medical terms that were used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can versed cause problems with the heart during a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I have taccycardia and memory problems. Will I have a heart attack?
Versed ;Heart attack: I do not know of a potential of Midazolam (™ versed) causing heart attacks. It does have some potential to make you forget what happened during the procedure (amnestic effect which is actually desirable in this particular situation), but heart attacks, while can happen due to stress of the procedure or blood pressure drop during procedure but not directly from versed (at least that is reported). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could stress cause high crp leves(32.50) and gastrointestinal problems? Have done colonoscopy/ct scan/ultrasound/fecal/blood test all clear?
Unlikely: Colonoscopy is a tool to look at the inside of the colon for polyps, cancers, ulcerations, inflammation or other disorders. Colonoscopy uses a flexible telescope with a fiber optic light source. Colitis is inflammation of the colon, it would be hard to link how a colonoscopy would cause colitis. ...Read more
Hernias development : Colonoscopy injects a lot of air into the colon and increases intravenous-abdominal pressure. If you have a hernia, the increased pressure will cause a pre-existent hernia to protrude. You should see a surgeon to have it repaired. The hernia has probably been there for awhile and protruded after to increase in abdominal pressure. ...Read more
