So....I had my first-ever colonoscopy just over two weeks ago (standard screening test, not diagnostic)...no issues at all with the prep or the procedure itself, but I'm still feeling a bit "off" from a digestive standpoint. No severe pain, no bleeding, no fever, no abdominal distention....nothing that I think would warrant a trip to the ER, but I am having some abdominal discomfort....feels periodically crampy in a localized area (kind of like a pinching or tightness) and of course I'm convinced that something catastrophic has happened. I did have a very small polyp removed. My appetite is fine, and my bowels are functioning pretty normally. (As a sidebar, i do suffer from fairly significant health anxiety, and have been spending time with Google....a horrible idea, i know)....i called my gastroenterologist last Monday to tell him how i was feeling and he said to not worry, that if anything truly horrible was wrong, i would know it. But of course i'm not convinced. Has anyone else experienced abdominal "not-quite-rightness" after a colonoscopy? Any words of wisdom?
