Light Headedness Two Weeks After Colonoscopy
Not usual: Nausea should not be a part of the after effects of colonoscopy. I would suggest you call your doctor and discuss. Something else is going on. Depending on the findings at the time of the colonoscopy and whether you started on some medical therapy for those findings, the nausea may be related to that therapy. But if no therapy was initiated, this is an unrelated symptom after 2 weeks. ...Read more

Possibly nothing: We sometimes see these. They may be nonspecific and related to preparation artifact. They may also be related to medications you may be taking such as nonsteroidal medications (ibuprofen, naproxen, advil). Inflammatory bowel disease is also a consideration but is less likely based on your description. Make sure to followup with your doctor who did the procedure. ...Read more

Colonoscopy: It is normal to have irregular bowel movements for several weeks after a colonoscopy. There is no need to take laxatives in this setting. Your best bet is to eat lots of healthy fruits and vegetables and cereals containing fiber, along with more fluid intake, and let your body reestablish your normal bowel patterns. Good luck. ...Read more

In your case I think it reasonable and consistent with the guideliines to repeat in five years. ...Read more

Two days fasting / preparing before colonoscopy/endoscopy and now three days constipated. What should I do? Should I take laxative?
Not sure: Your colon was likely cleaned out completely for the procedure. Not going to the bathroom is not really constipation as its defined by hard bowel movement with lots of straining involved. Unless you have abd pain or distention I wouldn't be too worried about it. Try some prune juice and if that doesn't help you can try over the counter miralax (polyethylene glycol). If you have hist of constip start taking a stool softe. ...Read more
