Lambkins, it isn't unusual to go a couple of days without a bm after a scope. Remember, the prep cleaned everything out from your stomach to your rectum, and the usual time it takes food to get from one end of your system to the other is anywhere from one to three days. The gas is most likely still from the procedure. They put air into your colon through the scope to sort of inflate it like a balloon so they can see all of the surfaces better. And the rumbling is from the gas.
So, nothing to be concerned about
at this point. Enjoy your time off the toilet, and if things still aren't moving by Tuesday after the holiday, call your GI then. Have a great weekend!
