Colonoscopy pain: Colonoscopy is kind of a miserable procedure to go through. You drink all of this nasty stuff to make you have diarrhea all day to prepare for it. Then they insert a large tube into your rectum which constantly bumps up and down against your anus. The result of all of this is a lot of inflammation, swelling, and local tenderness. This is worst at the rectum. The good news-it will go away in a few. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
