I had a colonoscopy on Friday, and the doctor removed a polyp. Can anyone who has had one of these procedures tell me if it is common to have a sharp stabbing pain in the general area where it was done? I wasn't told to expect any discomfort, and I'm just wondering if it's something out of the ordinary.  Anyone??? Please???

You should not have severe pain after a c-scope, even when a polyp was removed. Maybe some cramping. I wuold watch it and if it gets worse or you spike a fever, contact the G|I promptly, as it could signal a perforation.

I have never had pain after having them removed. Just the usual discomfort from the prep and scope. If this persists , call your doctor and get it checked out...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
