I have IBS, GERD. amongst a big list of medical problems.
 
Has anyone ever had CT Colonography (colonoscopy).
I have been told that I am too high a risk for
having a regular Colonoscopy.
I know they blow air into your bowels, the Do a CT Scan.
Is it more accurate than a regular Colonoscopy
 
I was diagnosed with diverticulosis in the mid 90's
Now in July a Barium enema was done, it says I have no diverticuli now.
However, I do! have a 3 cm narrowing of my sigmoid colon.
At that time they suggested an MRI which I cannot have because it would kill me...(I have a dual Chamber Pacemaker in my chest)
 
Now this fall I had an episode of nausea,vomiting, and diarrhea. They did a CT scan...they said no masses or growths.
I was treated as diverticulitis with CIPRO AND FLAGYL....only to have it make me feel even more sick. So back to the ER and Iwas told to discontinue that.
 
I still have bad boughts of IBS...+++EPISODES OF PAIN
AND exploding diarrhea...and constipation.
 
If this is negative...any suggestions for getting this IBS under control?

I don't think anything is better than the colonscopy for definetive answers. Are you talking about the virtual colonscopy? Not sure if that is the same. If they find polyps you have to have the regular anyway. If I may ask why are you high risk? because of the narrowing? They do colonscopies on people of all ages and with all sorts of medical problems. Just wondering why.
