Four days after procedure and pain is not going away. Pain in lower abdomen and rectum when passing wind. Hysterectomy two months before colonoscopy procedure. The lower abdomen pain according to Dr. is probably his doing.....Surgical sight has been aggravated. No kidding!
He says that when withdrawing scope he had to administer more sedation as I was in obvious discomfort. I remember clutching my abdomen at one point in serious pain. I was not aware of any other part of the procedure. Woke in recovery with pain, lots of gas.
Sitting, walking, bowel movements all uncomfortable. His phone instructions are to see him in four days if still in pain. Extra strength acetaminophen every four hours is keeping me sane.
Note written by Dr. After procedure said two polyps removed, and to have another colonoscopy in three years. That suggests to me that the colon is healthy.
Is there anyone out there who has experienced any of this or who can suggest what might have transpired?
