Colonoscopy today - Dr said all normal - but what's this in picture?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello. Just had a colonoscopy today. Dr. said afterwards and in paperwork that all was good. I was looking at the pictures he sent home with me and saw this this thing on the left. Any idea what that is? I plan on calling in morning but it's after hours right now. Thanks.

    Good idea to ask to put your mind at rest.  I'm not a medical person, so don't know.  It could be something totally normal or something as simple as a little bit of left over faeces, or a tiny polyp I suppose, but those are usually removed during the colonoscopy

    All you can do is make sure you ask the dr and get some reassurance.  I can’t seem to find anything via internet as to what it could be.  Anything suspicious surely would of been dealt with there and then.  I think you need reassurance from them and don’t give in until you get it x
