PAIN post Colonoscopy

Postby StupidAssCancer » Thu Jun 16, 2016 8:32 pm

I recently 2 days ago had a follow up check up colonoscopy. My colorectal cancer was found 3 years ago and I was in remission. After this colonoscopy I have had severe right side abdominal pain. It is a 7 on a pain scale and increases with abrupt movement, getting up walking etc. no polyps where removed.
Has anyone else had this? Any suggestions? Dr just says go to ER, I'm tired of ER. Any idea what this could be? I currently have an end ileostomy so nothing goes into my colon at all. Thank you!
