I had an abnormal pap and know my doctor recommends a colonoscopy. Why would this recommended?

If there is Cx

Colonoscopy
Cancer, assessing bladder and rectum part of staging, in that invasion of either upstages, changes treatment options. Speak with Gyn-Onc about your Dx and your treatment options. If not invasive Cervix, no clear reason for bowel look at 20, unless they detected blood.

Left lower abd pain. Pap, blood, colonoscopy, stool, ct scan normal. Left arm pit pain, left neck node swollen and throbbing tongue. OVAR CA poss?

Complicated

Computed_tomography
There are so many symptoms and signs that are probably not connected, I would continue working with your doctor or get a second opinion. You have a CT scan with is neg. I assume it is of your pelvis. This would at least give us reassurance of no pelvic mass such as a Ovarian cancer. Left lower quadrant pain could be, muscle, ureter, bladder, uterus, colon, hip, kidney.

I am scheduled for a colonoscopy . . .is it ok to drink orange gatorade?

Yes

Colonoscopy
the day before the procedure, I believe they put you on a clear liquid diet while taking the cathartic. After midnight, they may put you off any food except water until after the procedure. So until the day before the procedure the gatorade of any flavor is ok.

Few days before scheduled baseline colonoscopy developed hemorroid. Should I reschedule?

Maybe

Colonoscopy
The hemorrhoid will likely be more bothersome during and after the prep but will not be an issue during colonoscopy. Dont let it be an excuse to avoid a potentially life saving test...

I have a colonoscopy scheduled for a month from now - how can I deal with the pain in the mean time?

Depends

Colonoscopy
Speak with your physician. Depends on the cause of your pain. Is it because of a stricture? Constipation? IBD? IBS? There are many causes of pain. The only person that can advise you for the pain is your treating physician.

If I'm pregnant and scheduled for a colonoscopy, what will they give me during the procedure for pain and anxiety?

See below

Colonoscopy
BE sure that the colonosocpy is absolutely necessary. If it is purely elective, put it off until after delivery. Otherwise I agree with Dr Kline.

Scheduling a colonoscopy. Never been sedated and nervous about it. Gastro likes to only do full sedation. Should I look at other options?

Full sedation

Colonoscopy
Makes it easier, faster and more pleasant. Make sure the medication is administered by a dedicated anesthesiologist and that you are given oxygen supplementation and have your vital signs monitored. If you prefer light sedation, tell your doctor, but he may be unable to do a complete exam if you are too uncomfortable.
