In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, then ...Read more

Is it unusual to have a bruised abdomen after a colonoscopy?

Possible: But not the colonoscopy per se but rather manual compression of the abdomen is sometimes needed to guide the scope to the full extent of the colon especially with a tortuous colon or prior abdominal surgeries.

It's possible, but..: Most often, the colonoscopy is an uneventful procedure, but on occasion, depending on your body position while getting the scope and the amount of "snaking" of the scope that need to be done, you may have some abd discomfort afterwards. Be sure to call the Dr. who performed the procedure and let them know as they would want to know any difficulties you are experiencing. best wishes. ...Read more

Unknown: If you are having a different reaction than before, talk to your doctor who did the scope. One thing we all worry about is an undiagnosed perforation of the colon. If you have that, you need treatment now. Tell your doctor your symptoms now. ...Read more

Unusual causes of lower right abdominal pain? Colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, blood and urine tests have all found no cause.

Don't give up !: Not all bad things that occur in the abdomen are associated with high fever (example: acute intestinal ischemia) nor does the pain have to be severe (example: cancer is often painless). Remember, the abdomen includes many organ systems (gi tract, liver/biliary/pancreas, renal/urologic, gynecologic, vascular, etc.)--any one of which can cause catastrophic illness without severe discomfort or fever. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy yesterday with a biopsy. I am feeling mild discomfort and pain in my lower abdomen. Is this normal after such procedure?

Not unusual.: It would not be unusual to feel off the day after a colonoscopy, either from the procedure itself or from the anesthetic. Today might be a wash, but if you're still not right tomorrow then you may want to let your Gastroenterologist know. ...Read more
