Hello went to Liverpool and had a proctogram done on the 31 Aug 17 and awaiting for the hospital where I live in the Isle of Man to contact me. But they have not done so yet and its now the 19 Sept. So I had to eat and drink normally they wanted to see how my bowel worked so think u call it "full defecography procedure"?
They fly u over from the IOM to the hospital in Liverpool and when at the hospital I had to drink a bottle of white stuff tasted awful was gagging on it. Then you went in with just your gown on to the room and lay on the bed. They were very nice to me. They did a finger up the bum. Then they put some other stuff up my bum which I had to hold in. You lay at this stage on your side with your legs curled up. Then they took pictures and videos of you. They told you to hold in, to cough and to bear down but dont push the stuff out of your bum. I could not bear down, so what does that mean?
Then they got you off the bed and they sat you on a big high chair commode and the put the bed upright so the xray machine, camera thing was behind you and could take pictures of you on the commode. They got you to pass out the stuff and they were filming and taking pictures the whole time. They asked you to stop at times.
When it was over I asked if I did it alright and they said yes.
I asked if they had found something else and they said yes it was fairly common but not sure what they found. They also said they need look at all the photos and videos and then send them to the IOM hospital, which is the hospital I come under.
So seeing I cant bear down what does that mean?
Before this I had a colonoscopy on the 6 Feb 17, so are the colonoscopy accurate if it showed something is that definitely right too?
The colonoscopy Report I was given after the procedure on 6 Feb 17 said
Perianal lesions: 3 haemorrhoids (2nd degree) and skin tag within
Haemorrhoids and mild degree of rectoanal intussuseprion.
Thanks for any comments or thoughts on what I may have.
