I don't know if this is the right forum  so please guide me elsewhere if needed. I had colonoscopy last Dec. and stomach is still sore meaning tender like you did a bunch of sit ups and the next day is sore.. Recent tests (take home Poo cards) show a bit of blood 2 out of 4 tests. Gi doc removed clusters and polyps 14 total varying size. All were pre cancerous. My concern is about hacking that many areas causing cells to leak and posibly cause problems for future. They would like to continue with another colonoscopy this Dec. ( routine practice i guess for my condition. ) I don't have any other symptoms except maybe losing muscle mass this last year and have to  work a bit at keeping weight on.  This is a mild soreness . I am curious if there is threads addressing any similarities. The docs response is come on back and I know I don't want to risk another colonoscopy. Thanks for listening.

I don't think a colonoscopy would still be causing your pain this long. I really think you need to go back to the doc for more testing, obviously there is something else going on in there. Hugs!

If you had that many precancerous polyps removed, it's really important to go back and have them check again. Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in the US, and it is far more treatable if you catch it early.

Regarding the other issues, have you talked to your internist about the weight loss and pain? That's something to check out, too. Maybe there's something going on in the small intestine (which would be looked at with an endoscopy, not a colonoscopy). Feel better!
