Painful condition: The colonoscopy should not cause a measurable worsening of your condition, but the procedure may cause temporary irritation and a transient increase in pain. The underlying problem may be getting worse, though, so if the worsening persists, tell your doctor or seek additional care. ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy once and recently had diverticolitis, with infection, could I have contracted it from a dirty scope. How do I know they are clean?

I had a colonoscopy once and recently had diverticolitis, with infection, could I have contracted it from a dirty scope. How do I know they are clean?

Colonoscope: There are standard cleansing techniques employed by all reputable doctors performing these procedures. That having been said, diverticulitis will never be caused by a "dirty" colonoscope. This is an anatomic abnormality with outpouchings of the wall of the colon which are prone to perforation and infection spreading outside the gut. Nothing whatever to do with the procedure. ...Read more

I've had 2 c-sections and a hysterectomy. I have adhesions. When I have a colonoscopy they've had to use a pedi scope.This last time pedi scope wouldn't pass thru. So used endoscope.Need to worry?

I've had 2 c-sections and a hysterectomy.  I have adhesions. When I have a colonoscopy they've had to use a pedi scope.This last time pedi scope wouldn't pass thru. So used endoscope.Need to worry?

No, but be aware: Those who have had abdominal surgery are at risk for adhesion formation. Adhesions can bind the intestines and colon. This can increase risk of abdominal pain and in some cases intestinal blockage. Be aware of any abdominal pain or change in bowel habits. Endoscopes are adequate to examine the colon as long as the cecum at the end of your colon can be seen. ...Read more

I had a hemorrhoid operation 25-30 years ago there is a lot of scar tissue last colonoscopy dr said had some trouble with scope. Do I need operation?

I had a hemorrhoid operation 25-30 years ago there is a lot of scar tissue last colonoscopy dr said  had some trouble with scope. Do I need operation?

Probably: If the hemorrhoidectomy removed too large an area of island tissue between the sites where the hemorrhaoids were excised, the mucosa of the anal canal can form a stricture. This would make it hard to pass the scope. If there are normal bowel movements one can leave the situation alone or dilate the area. Otherwise the interspaced island of existing scar may need adjacent skin rotated in. ...Read more

I have acid reflux for a few years. Had a large amount of blood hectically one time. Went to emergency room and then to a gasteroligist, Had a colonoscopy. no problem there. Had an upper scope which showed an esophageal ulcer. Have been taking Dexila

& your question is?: You've described high grade esophageal injury, which may occur in the setting of gastroesophageal reflux (GERD), infection (Herpes, cytomegalovirus, etc.), burn damage, drug-related ulceration, Crohn's disease, etc. Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) blocks acid but may not have fixed your problem if not an acid-related one. Do you feel improved? Is the benefit of Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) to you outweighed by risks of continued use? ...Read more
