Rectal Pain After Colonoscopy
Have had severe rectal pain for 8+ mos., feels like sharp gravel on L side--started the day after a routine colonoscopy!! ... Was I injured during C?
It's possible.: If your symptoms have gone on for 8 months, you really need to get back to the doctor who did the colonoscopy and be reevaluated for the cause of pain. It simply isn't possible to give any significant information on a forum without further workup and examination. Best wishes. ...Read more

Would a doctor do a colonoscopy or something like that on a 16 year old girl with consistant rectal pain and bleeding?
Unlikely: Most bleeding in a 16 yr old with rectal pain would be due to a fissure, a simple office exam would make this diagnosis, if not the next step would be a flexible sigmoidoscopy. More worrisome conditions such as ulcerative colites or inheretic form of colon cancer (fap), would be diagnosed on flexible sigmoidoscopy. ...Read more

You may have:
A bothersome entity called "Fissure in an" which is a cracklike defect in you anal wall. This is VERY PAINFUL and can often not be diagnosed with simple RECTAL exam. Protoscopic exam is needed!
In the meantime try hot SITZ baths!!
Hope this helps and Good Luck!

Had a colonoscopy yesterday, removed four polyps, one of which had to be clip, how long dose the clip stay in? Also not feeling 100% lot of rectal press.
Clip will pass: The clip on the stalk of a polyp will fall off after a few weeks. It will likely pass without you knowing about it. The rectal pressure after colonoscopy is due to irritation of the rectal canal from manipulating the colonoscope during the procedure. It should resolve within a day or two after the procedure. ...Read more
Which tests are considered "routine" when trying to diagnose rectal and anal problems? I have had a colonoscopy, I had a few polyps and inter. Hemmorh
Colonoscopy is it!: For common rectal or anal problems such as rectal bleeding or pain, a full colonoscopy is commonly "routine" at age 53. Depending upon the symptoms, a simple anoscopy or rigid or flexible sigmoidoscopy might be recommended. Importantly' rectal bleeding should never be attributed to hemorrhoids without an endoscopic exam to document hemorrhoids or, more importantly, rule out a malignancy. ...Read more
Colonoscopy: Will look for tumors or polyps in the colon. Most common cause of bleeding may be from hemorrhoids or anal fissure that may not be seen well on colonoscopy. Less common causes of colon bleeding could be vascular malformation or diverticulosis which can bleed intwrmittently & would not be seen at colonoscooy unless there was active bleeding at the time of the procedure. ...Read more

Rectal bleeding occassionllly, have hemrooids, overdo for colonoscopy. Should I see a gasyrenterologistnor a proctologist.
Both: Both do however if a mass is there the colon and rectal surgeon can take care of it. In addition a colorectal surgeon would be more agressive at removing a polyp whereas a GI may be more apt to recommend surgery. This is based on personal experience. Fyi colonoscopy was pioneered by a general and cardiothoracic surgeon at beth israel in ny. Dr wolff and dr shinya invented polypectomy. ...Read more
Small bowel and anus: When a work up involves an EGD and colonoscopy, it misses the small intestines - a capsule endoscopy or bleeding scan would be needed to assess bleeding sites in the small intestines. As well, a colonoscopy may miss the otherwise obvious hemorrhoids or anal fissures which could bleed from the anus. ...Read more
Heavy rectal bleeding for almost 3 weeks 3-4 x a day. Colonoscopy 10/28/13 no polyps etc. Any idea? I'm beyond worried
You are young: It is hard to imagine what could be bleeding in your colon, at your age and not seen by colonoscopy. The only thing I could think of is av malformation since they can't be seen once decompressed from bleeding. You have to discuss it further with your doctor and your gastroenterologist as to what it could be. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with rectal cancer after colonoscopy, now next endoscopy for check, but I don't want terrible pain again, what should I do?
Propofol sedation: Some patients can not tolerate regular sedation (conscious sedation) during colonoscopy. Ask your doctor who will perform the colonoscopy if he/she or an anesthesiologist can sedate you with Propofol. In many areas of the USA, Propofol is the standard medication for colonoscopy sedation. However, in most other parts of the country, colonoscopy is performed using conscious sedation. ...Read more
Are rectal hemorrhoids dangerous and how do they differ from a polyp? I have just had a colonoscopy and have hemorrhoids - not malignant thankfully.
First of all:
Hemorrhoids are NEVER "Malignant" and they are not "pleasant" to have but they are not DANGEROUS! Good bowel hygiene and proper diet will help and your Primary Care Provider can outline these suggestions to you! Worse case scenario is hemorrhoid surgery but this is usually NOT necessary!!
Hope this helps!!!

I have mucus rectal discharge, slightly gel-like, ranges from pale yellow to bright green. I don't have STIs and colonoscopy was normal.
Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, anal-rectal dysfunction, infection, & even secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies & probably a sigmoidoscopy should be considered, but a more extensive evaluation may be warranted. ...Read more
