Went to see my GI today. First time since having my sigmoid colon removed, Can't believe it has been almost 2 years, wow.

After a quick chat about the syptoms that the crohns is rearing it's ugly head again he agreed it is time from another colonoscopy.

I have got a good Doc and he has agreed to let me not be sedated this time so I can watch, I have always wanted to, and since it will be through my stoma on my stomach I don't think it will be so bad, but he said if it got to intense he would have the drugs ready if I need em.

Anyone that has a colostomy and had a colonoscopy done tell me if there was any noticeable difference?

It is gonna be next monday so wish me luck!

Hi,
Sorry I forgot to post update, been busy going back and forth to docs offices ( 1oo miles away ).
As far so the scope it was great, all I felt was "cramps" as he went around corners, but getting to watch it was fastinating!!
Good news is large intestine was fine no problems anywhere, but that ment I had to have an upper GI series done, and yup it has moved into small intestines now. back on meds going to try and get it under control with meds for now and see, hopefully no surgerys for a while.
