Hi. I had a colonoscopy yesterday but they could only see the sigmoid left side because apparently i had a loop and could not go past it with pain. I was sedated but I felt some pain however I did not realise how i reacted to the pain. It was like I felt pain in my sleep. They decided to not go on and refer me to another future colonoscopy under general anaesthetic.
The doctor did not explain what the “unresolved loop” was, this was written in the report, he only said I could not tolerate the pain. I am freaking out because,for one, I feel unwell after the bowel prep, very strong bowel sounds and gurgling, as if I lost all my good bacteria. And I never had a general anaesthetic before, I heard it comes with risks. Plus again the horrendous bowel prep.
Has anyone else had to repeat colonoscopy because of loops or pain?
