Sorry to read this Bill. I have had routine colonoscopy every 6 years as screening for bowel cancer due to parental history but have not continued with it since being part of the non invasive over 60 bowel cancer screening programme. I always had sedation and no issues. I concluded that the risks associated with colonoscopy, mainly bowel perforation, were too high to continue while there was an alternative. I wonder if your bowel was injured or aggravated during the process. The area is very delicate and as we know when we have health issues there we can feel very poorly. I hope that you continue to recover well.
