Hi there, I had a sigmoidoscopy done on 25th April - result : diverticular found, routine biopsies taken which came back negative.
I had a colonoscopy done on May 21st. This result was all clear, no biopsies taken.
I had a repeat colonoscopy this morning. Apparently I was in so much pain I asked him to stop ( I don't remember). The written results say diverticular disease and routine biopsies taken. However, the nurse mentioned some inflammation.
I don't understand why this procedure was so painful when the others weren't. I also don't understand why the other two were clear yet inflammation has been found now. I'm not experiencing any pain or D. I had the repeat done as I was still having a bit of rectal bleeding when passing motions and because the second procedure hadn't found the diverticular I questioned if something could have been missed.
Really worried I have IBD but I'm sure the biopsies would have picked it up. It's only been 2 months and I've had 3 procedures in this time. Surely it would have been picked up before. They didn't write inflammation on my discharge papers though so I'm at a loss. Surely they would have if it was severe?
Anyone have any experience of this? All were done on the NHS, btw
Thanks in advance
