Gas X Other 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, then ...Read more

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.

I had an unsussesful colonoscopy last week. They couldn't complete due to pain from the gas/air pumped in. How common is this? What's the alternative.
Colonoscopy: Incomplete colonoscopy can occur up to 5 to 10% of the time. Whether a repeat attempt would be successful mostly depends on why it was unsuccessful in the first place. You should talk to your G.I. doc about whether a repeat attempt with better sedation or a better prep would be useful. If not, a "virtual" colonoscopy might be the next step. Good luck. ...Read more

This is accomplished by changing your position in bed, gentle abdominal pressure, & verbal encouragement to overcome your natural embarrassment at passing gas. Some air may persist for several hours--call for help if longer. ...Read more

Dulcolax: This increase in intestinal peristalsis may be a somewhat delayed laxative effect of the dulcolax. Your normal colonoscopy in July is reassuring.
