Did the Doctor take care of your adhesions on your colon? I just had a
sigmoidoscopy last week looking for the cause of blood. Of course the
test was normal as everything else has been. But I'll tell you what, I
have never been in so much pain during a test during my life. I think
he could have yanked my colon out through my nose and caused less pain.
I asked if it could have been so painful because of adhesions and he
just looked at me and said "you should be happy everything is normal". I
am new to this forum am amazed that so many of us are having such
similar experiences. I agree "Go figure!!!"
