i had a full, sedated colonscopy two mondays ago.
I had severe pain after that and lasted about three days.
I decided to go with liquid diet and took ciproxin (adives by doctor), the pain subsided and until two days ago I felt quite good (sure still I felt something but not very much).

two nights ago I suddenly felt again the same pain and more... in my left side belly...
yesterday was a nightmare today a bit better but still I can't quite walk and breathe...

in ten years I never had so much pain from my crohn!

why that colonscopy made me so sick? did anyone have the same problem?

asdrubale, I agree, please go see your doc sooner rather than's very possible to colonoscopies to bring on flares but if you've never experianced what you are currently going through then it shouldn't be put off. I know strange things can happen with having CD but it's really important you discuss any changes with your doc.

Going to the ER isn't out of the question either if you can't get your appointment bumped up sooner than the 22....that's a long way away from now. Good luck!
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I have never had a flare up caused by a colonoscope but for me, this is a flare up. As other posters have mentioned, call your doc asap.
Hope you feel better soon:)
Take care!
