First colonoscopy tomorrow :(

Postby Tryingtofindabalance » 16 Oct 2017, 16:04

I finally have one and after researching it I'm terrified. Horror stories of infections or internal bleeding or perforation...I want to figure this out so I can stop the pain and bleeding but I have severe anxiety and I'm scared it'll just cause more problems. Any words of advice for prep or during and after procedure? I need to calm down

It will be okay, complications from colonoscopy are very rare. If you have an active fissure make sure the doctor knows.

VERY rare. My CRS told me that he has done over 5,000 and never once nicked someone or gave them an infection.
