Re: New and scared...

I agree with everyone that the benefits of colonoscopy outweigh the very small amount of risk. Good luck!

Re: Pressure in rectum. PLEASE HELP.

I would try abdominal massage, walking around and heat for gas and bloating. Good luck!

Re: Rectal Pressure

I'm glad you're seeing your doctor. I had my colon resection surgery in 2014 and experience a lot of rectal pressure and pain. The doctor says I have IBS but I've had horrible pain and rectal bleeding again. I am doubling my anti-spasmodic dosage and starting on low dose aspirin. I will get a colono...

Gi Appointment

My appointment went better than I thought it would. He’s doubling my main anti-spasmodic pinaverium bromide from 50mg three times a day to 100mg 3 times a day.
