3 months left side abdo & flank pain and tenderness blood urine cystoscopy & CT scan fine. No diarrhea, but some constipation. Colonoscopy next. Cause?
Possibilities: A ct scan could have missed a kidney stone that passed just before the scan. It could also miss diverticulitis, depending on whether the ct scan was done with both IV and oral contrast. Colonoscopy is definitely the next thing to do. Another consideration is endometriosis, ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy, or inflammatory bowel disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perforation: The two main risks of colonoscopy are perforation and missed lesions. The national rate of perforation is 1 in every 3, 000 to 5, 000 colonoscopies. This is a very low rate, so much so that it is considered very low risk. The rate of missed lesions is estimated to be about 15 for every 100 lesions, nationally. The risk of sedation depends on your health status, but it is generally very safe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can i go to a party after my colonoscopy? My procedure’s on friday morning and i want to go to a party that night. Is it safe for me to go? Can i drink?
Thanks : Thanks for your question. Generally we advise patients not to drive or operate any heavy machinery until the following day after a colonoscopy, because the medicines used to sedate you can cause cloudy thinking and altered judgment. There is no medical reason you couldn't go to a party if you are feeling up to it, but i would strongly suggest you go with a trusted friend who can drive you and stay with that friend for the duration of the party. Let him/her know that your judgment may be impaired so he/she can "look out" for you. I would suggest not drinking alcohol that night. I hope this answers your question. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You : You can discuss with your doctors and anesthesiologist your choices. In the past, only mild sedatives were used for colonoscopy, but in the past several years more anesthetics have been used. It may depend on if you have any other medical conditions that could affect your risks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Look inside colon: You are sedated (very sleepy, but still breathing on your own). The endoscopist places an instrument through your anus and then passes it into the colon to carefully exam the colon for polyps, cancer, etc. If any abnormalities are found a biopsy may be done. Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
