Why Cant I Wear Dentures When You Get A Colonoscopy
Had colonoscopy today w/heavy sedation. Feel like I'm breathing a little heavy or cant get a good full breathe. Normal after sedation?

See Doctor!: 3 weeks is too long and you are auto-intoxicating your body with bacteria that will get into your bloodstream from the colon & hardening your stool. You may need to be evacuated either manually, or with stool softeners.3 weeks of food not passing & symptoms suggest, your immune system is affected.

See the doctor: See the dentist who made the dentures so that they can evaluate the fit and adjust any sore spots if possible. If you have no dentist, see a prosthodontist - the specialist in dentures. If it is not from the denture then you should be referred to an oral surgeon for evaluation of the lesion. ...Read more

You could: But I think it would be a reasonable suggestion not to have it done at that time. The cleaning materials used on the scopes will kill the virus, but you put the people caring for you at potential risk. They all wear gloves and use sterile technique, but unless it was an emergency and you told them before that you had active herpes I think I would postpone. Please call and ask anonymously. ...Read more
Yes.: You cannot transmit the Herpes infection to another part of your body after you get the initial infection. Your body produces antibodies that prevent other areas of your body from becoming infected--but it is possible to already have multiple areas involved from the same initial infection. Do tell the colonoscopy staff so that they may exercise greater contact precautions. ...Read more
