6 year old having endoscopy/colonoscopy will she be sore afterwards ? I heard your throat and rectum would be. How do I prepare her for this?

6 year old having endoscopy/colonoscopy will she be sore afterwards ? I heard your throat and rectum would be. How do I prepare her for this?

Not necessarily...: Typically, your child will be sedated during the test ; will have no recollection of it. Afterward, he/she may burp or pass flatus from air used during the exam to inflate the GI tract. Since we don't know circumstances as to why your child needs testing its impossible to predict findings nor anticipate what else may be present that can contribute to post-testing soreness/discomfort. Best wishes. ...Read more

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more

SEE A DOCTOR: Many times strep can clear up on its own without treatment. However, if strep isnt treated one runs the risk of developing rheumatic fever, glomerulonephritis, or chorea. It is not worth the risk not to be treated. The white patch may be caused by a virus, but one can't tell for sure unless a culture is taken. ...Read more
