So I just had a colonoscopy

Posted , 2 users are following.

hey just had a colonoscopy without sedation and guess what it was nowhere near as bad as I had imagined the only pain I felt was towards the end when he got to the end of my colon apart from that it was over very quickly with no pain.

few questions though

1.at one point I thought I had seen a lump in my colon but the doctor doing it or the nurse after didn't mention it.so if it was a lump would they of said they found one ?

2.diagnosis and procedure (on blue letter they give you upon discharge) it says the colon to the extent of the examination was normal is that good! .

3. In the picture I uploaded does it all look okay is it good news lol?

    I don't think any one but a doctor could confirm - but try not to worry - make an appointment to see your GP Write all your questions down as it's easily to get nervous. My doctor that did mine said he would see us in a week or do to talk everything over (although not got appointment yet) as a standard procedure I think a sample is sent for culture (I understand that takes a week)

    So Make an appointment to see your GP but main thing don't worry and take care

      A quick reply during mine he found 3 "haemorrhoids" these wee then @banded" which which I understand cuts off the circulation to them therefore @killing@ them

      So if there was anything in yours I'm sure they would have told you and completed whatever was needed

      But have a chat with GO to reassure yourself x

      Really see I have 3-5 lumps which drop out my recutum whilst having a bowel movement and the Dr didn't even mention if I had hemmorids even though I have a bunch of them.

      will make an appointment with my GP on Monday. Will he know anything about my colonoscopy though is my only concern or do I need to see someone at my hospital for more information

      Whatever was found - the information will be forwarded to your GP Bit your GP may not have received the results

      But make a list of all these concerns and ask them one by one

      And if he has not received them ask ur GP to phone you when he has

      Also ask will there be a follow up appointment with your a Hospital doctor. Good luck xx
