I had a colonoscopy in April because of female pain the doctor thought might be referred pain. 4 days later I ended up in the hospital. I was given Levanquin, Flagyl, Relgan, Ambien, and Ativan for suspected UTI and kidney stone. It was determined that I passed a minute particle of protien instead of a kidney stone. I had both rectal and vaginal pain. I still suffer from both. I have not been able to have a bowel movement without the aid of a laxative since the colonoscopy. The doctor said there were a couple of hard places to get through. I could feel them when I supposedly was under. In the middle of the procedure I asked for them to put me under more. I think they thought was out of it. I can still remember the pain of the procedure. It was determined that I had several diverticuli, but that was it. He told me I would not need another colonoscopy for ten years. I think I have two things going on, trauma from the colonoscopy and some bladder/female issue. The nerves in my vagina and rectum still are in pain lots of days. I have been diganosed with trigonitis and cannot eat much for a variety of foods without having extreme pain. Anyone else experienced this or know someone who has? I have been to multiple doctors and they all just shake their heads.

This is very familiar...I too am in the same situation.I've pretty much begged for answers after my colonoscopy .I know that this procedure is the culprit,only problem is the Dr. who did it refused to acknowledge what has been done.I'm just a bit tired of the head scratching myself!First I was refused the day after the colonoscopy a follow up ( I called in horrific pain)only for the nurse to deny me medical attention.She diagnosed over the phone ????? Just hours later I ended up in the ER. 3 ( yes ) 3 CT Scans later I am told nothing is wrong.I've been to a urologist & back to my Gastro guy ... With (like you) this had scratching dumb look on their faces.I live in a city where there is a monopoly on the medical treatment you get.No matter who I see around here,it's always the same affiliation & network.Have you found a Dr that has taken you seriously yet?If so,share the diagnosis and what type of Dr. you see.I need some answers ....
