I have had two colonoscopies since I finished RT. Both were just like the ones I had before treatment. No issues due to the RT and no special prep or procedure needed.
My first one, about
six months post RT didn't show anything RT related, just the same old hemorrhoid that was bothering me for years. The second colonoscopy (three years after RT) showed signs of radiation proctitis so they did some spot laser treatments to the bad areas and a little treatment on the hemorrhoid.
Life back there has be a whole lot better since then.
The prep was the only thing to disk like about
I'll be in the shop.
