A Fib and Colonoscopy

Posted , 8 users are following.

Ok my dear A Fib friends I need to hear about your experiences with having a colonoscopy after being diagnosed with A Fib. I'm having one done in early November. I've had one done before I was diagnosed but this time is a little different as now I'm on medication for it. So if you could please let me know how you did with this procedure and what medications you were on at the time. Thanks a bunch everyone.

    You can have a CT scan called a virtual colonoscopy but it is only an examination and can't take biopsies or remove polyps.

      Yes I've heard of this however I don't think that's available at my local hospital. And I don't want to end up having to have a colonoscopy after a cat scan. Hopefully I won't have any problems
