I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy on the 12th December 2016. The colonoscopy was extremely painful and I was told the reason for this was because it was a difficult turn in my colon. I had quite a lot of wind pain due to trapped wind. However, I was finally discharged from the hospital and told to take it easy for the rest of the day, which I did. Since having this procedure I have not felt well I have had recurrent bouts of diarrhoea, sometimes going up to ten times a day. I telephoned the hospital 4 days later to be told I probably had a tummy bug and was told to phone an out of hours doctor if the condition worsened. I managed to get through the night and because I had not got any worse I consulted my local pharmacy, who gave me anti diarrhoea capsules, which contain loperamide,hydrochloride. This did help to alleviate the diarrhoea after 4 tablets. I then became constipated for a few days and then the diarrhoea started again and I had to start with the tablets again, which stopped it. I went to my doctors for the results of the procedures to be told that nothing could be found other than gastritis and I had been given medication for this. I told my doctor about the diarrhoea and she said if it continued to go back and see her. At the time of my visit to the doctor I felt okay and not had diarrhoea for a couple of days. However, I have had really bad diarrhoea twice since seeing my doctor. I have resumed the tablets again and I am going to go back to see my doctor again. I wondered if anyone else out there has had the same problems and how this was dealt with. I am getting really fed up with this and I certainly will not be having a colonoscopy again!
