I hope this might be the correct forum to ask this question on. I thought you may have experience of this hope so. Thanks.
I recently had a gastroscopy and sigmoidoscopy on June 14th to investigate a low blood count. Since the evening after the scopes I have had problems. I constantly feel full and cannot even eat a good sized meal, have lost nearly 2 stones in weight and my bowels open after every meal sometimes even after I drink. Not getting diarrhoea but even so not good. I also have BMs at other times. Between 07.30 and 10.00 this morning I have had 4 BMs - one straight after breakfast. It is hardly surprising therefore that I am losing weight. I have found some old posts on another forum where people had complained about this saying that it was under reported and believe it was caused by the colon prep used causing an aggravation. My GP and the hospital endoscopy unit refuse to believe that the "scopes"caused this. Yes, a small stomach ulcer and a benign single polyp was found and very mild diverticular disease - commensurate with my age of 74 but I had no symptoms before and this started the evening after the scopes. My GP has suggested taking pro biotics to get my "friendly gut bacteria" back up which I have started doing. Just wondering if anyone else has had this and suggestions for help please.
