I had an Endoscopy and Colonocopy done with biopsies on Thurs 9/22 to help diagnose my nausea, stomach pain, and diarrhea since I was told I had possible UC.
Doctor told me if she felt something was wrong during the procedure she would stop. I had the double scopes done with the biopsies and when I woke I was told there were problems... apparently I have a strange curve in my colon, the doctor had to use a regular colonoscopy scope, a pediatric scope, and an endoscope to get through. She did the biopsies and that was it. I was told their will be some pain and a little blood. I was sent home right after. As soon as I got home I was in a lot of pain with the urge to have to go to the bathroom. There was lots of gas... and lots of blood. I thought it was fine until it was Saturday morning and I woke in extreme pain with more bleeding. I was told to go to the ER where my GI's associate would meet me there. I got there and I HAD to go to the bathroom around 5 times all with pain, gas, and blood. I had to do an enema and they then performed the colonoscopy again where then they had found I was torn/scratched and bruised up my sigmoid and descending colon (which given how sore I was inside they felt awful for having me even do an enema) They also found three bleeding biopsy sites in my transverse colon, one had a visible blood vessel. The doctor closed off each of those large biopsy sites with hemostatic clips and finished the procedure with no problems. It is now 4 days later and there is no more bleeding, but a lot of pain in my rectum/sigmoid/descending colon. I'm assuming it is gas because it goes away if I'm on my left side or sitting up and pass that small amount of gas. How long is this pressure/cramping pain supposed to last? I've heard mixed emotions on gas medications. I just want to be normal and I'm afraid of more diarrhea (the stress of more blood) or hard to pass stools with the damage of my colon. Any advice? It's caused a lot of anxiety.
