Yesterday I had colonoscopy with anesthesia (passed out for the whole procedure) and today my lungs hurt. Why, what's the connection?
R/O COMPLICATION: Often times Propofol is used for anesthesia it is very potent. Rarely when you are recovery from anesthesia, fluid may get into the lungs. This is referred as aspiration. I recommend following up with your GI doctor. If symptoms worsen acutely or fever develops, get immediate evaluation and X-ray to rule out aspiration Pneumonia. ...Read more
Its been 4 days since my colonoscopy why does my anus still hurts.I can't sit or walk its so painful, I am constantly on heating pad its only help ?
Rectal pain: There are a couple of possibilities. One could be irritation of your hemorrhoids and/or an anal fissure from the prep or scope itself. Warm tub soaks and over the counter anal cream with 1% Hydrocortisone up inside twice a day for 7 days should help. If that doesn't suffice or if it gets worse, see your doctor. ...Read more
No: In the hands of a well trained gastroenterologist using the right sedation, you should feel no pain during colonoscopy. The procedure should last around 20 to 30 minutes. You may feel some bloating after colonoscopy. You need to ask your gastroenterologist what type of sedation is used.

Hemorrhoids on all sidesof my anus.Itch/dont hurt but when I have a bm they protrude and make for messy cleanup.Normal colonoscopy 1yr ago what to do?
Hemorrhoids: There are three steps to self treating hemorrhoids (blood clots in the rectal veins). 1. Soak: keep the area clean so that infection doesn't set in. 2. Soften your stool: keep from bearing down hard when having a bm so that the clot doesn't grow 3. And finally, steroids to shrink up the inflammation. Now the steroid that you need may be prescription strength. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a sigmoidoscopy hurt? My doctor told me i won’t get any sedation for my sigmoidoscopy, but my friend had sedation for his colonoscopy. Does that mean a sigmoidscopy hurts less?
Less uncomfortable: Different patients have different perceptions of pain. That being said, a sigmoidoscopy is generally less uncomfortable because they insert the instrument not nearly as far as with a colonoscopy. Consequently, they don't have to expand the inside of your colon with as much air during sigmoidoscopy which is generally the uncomfortable part. Sigmoidoscopy is commonly performed without sedation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
