I had a scope done thru my stoma at the Cleve Clinic during an office visit! Yep, you read that right. "Just hike up that dress, and we'll do it right now!" NO prep, no anesthetic, no xanax or valium, NOTHING! But you know what, I was in so much pain Before the scope that I was totally thankful that my surgeon was willing to do it for me right at that office visit. I had driven from southern IN to Cleveland OH for the appt.
I wore a 2 pc appliance, and went to my appt prepared to have to replace it. I'm glad that I did.
BTW, my scope came out just fine at that appt. That was when I was told that the pain that I was having was from adhesions/scar tissue.
Hope this helps.
