Bloating below naval for a year. Colonoscopy normal. Stool comes out without any problem. What tests do i need?

Belly bloating: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however PSBO (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of the urinary tract)must be considered & addressed.

Miss rate: A colonoscopy is only as good as the eyes of the colonoscopist doing the procedure. The miss rate for colon cancer on colonoscopy is quoted from 4 to 6 percent.
