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 more

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 more
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 more

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 more
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 more

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 more
Having problems with constipation, bloating and loss of appetite. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) causes me to burp alot. I had a colonoscopy l-l/2 years ago that was normal.?
Diet: If you have had a full work-up for your constipation, including lab tests. And you've reviewed any medications that might cause constipation, like blood pressure medications, then I would suggest you work on diet. Some people need a lot of fiber. So lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Also, the yogurt activia contains a probiotic that helps with constipation. ...Read more

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
Follow up: Mild transient discomfort or pain may be acceptable but any substantial or long-lasting pain requires a follow up with your endoscopist ...Read more
Irritable Bowel Syn.: Many things can cause uncontrollable diarrhea. A common cause is ibs. Ibs causes dysfunctional GI problems, ex diarrhea, constipation or both. Cause is unknown but may be stress, certain foods, etc. But there is nothing visibly wrong with your GI tract, so colonoscopy is clear. Another cause could be celiacs --gluten allergy that affects the small intestine, (not seen on a colonoscopy) or infecti. ...Read more
Colon target lesions: Sorry for confusion, but gastroenterologists commonly use the term "aphthous ulcers" to describe small ulcerations in the colon & small intestine. When terminology is applied precisely, the ulcers are associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Descriptively, but less precise, ulcers of similar appearance are seen in the lower GI tract with use of aspirin, with lymphoid hyperplasia, herpes, others. ...Read more
Target lesions?: I am assuming that you are referring to a pale central area surrounded by a red ring. This is generally bowel prep artifact, however if there was any concern on the physician's part, a biopsy would have been taken. ...Read more
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

Colonoscopy: There are many options for bowel preparation to choose from. Some of these options are much smaller in volume and also there is pill form. You should discuss your concerns with your GI physician to determine the best options for you. There are other options beside colonoscopy, but none of the other ones will have therapeutic benefits (most of the other ones are diagnostic). Again, discuss! ...Read more
