Flatulence Problems After Having A Colonoscopy
Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? No bloody stools
Options available: CT scan of the abdomen may be indicated but not for mild pain alone. If the symptoms are progressive and there is concern for Cancer (unlikely in your age group), then only I would consider doing a CT. Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone. If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do. In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, thenSee 1 more doctor answer

Sure.: While withdrawing the colonoscope from the cecum (first part of colon) to the rectum, the endoscopist will generally try to suction as much air as possible out of the colon, to reduce patient discomfort. Utilizing co2 gas also helps reduce postoperative gaseous distention.

Bacterial overgrowth: You give the symptoms of bacterial overgrowth syndrome which is a form of irritable bowel syndrome. The cause of this is a prior intestinal infection of any kind. You need to test for bacterial overgrowth syndrome. Less likely to be an ulcer. Avoid gas producing foods like onions. Avoid spicy foods. Take lactobacillus in pill form daily. Other probiotics could worsen problem. Follow up with GI MD.

Yes: The prep as well as the air that insufflated can lead to that sensation.
Call gastroenterolog: Call immediately could be small perforation. If he is not available then go to ER.

Colonoscopy problem?: Air used to inflate your colon may persist for several hours--not typically for 5 days. Your post-procedure symptoms may be due to colonoscopy-related factors: colonic or organ mechanical trauma, post-polypectomy syndrome, abdominal wall bruising from external pressure, etc.; diverticular disease; extra-intestinal problems; ibs; lots more. First step--call asap your colonoscopist ; ask his advice.
My colonoscopy was last wed & since then I have wokeup every morning with a bad tummyache & have had lots of gas in the evening. Is it normal or bad?
Check with doc: The symptoms you describe are common right after a colonoscopy (from air that is used to inflate your colon), but they shouldn't last for days. You should let your doctor know you're still having these symptoms. There can be complications from a colonoscopy, and it's important to make sure these are recognized early!
