All the colonoscopies I have had done since my surgery the doctor enters through the stoma.


i have had colonoscopy through stoma and rectum . i had etonox ( gas and air) during the procedure it was no big deal


they typically do them one after the other, not two cameras at once. you also may have an option of anesthesia or no depending on what your dr needs to do. I go no anesthesia if I can so I don't lose an entire day of my life


Go in one end and come out the other, kind of a 2fer1 deal.

Just more concerned about the prep. And very worried about getting to the hospital w/o a mess.


YES I DID thats how they found out i was a mess from hershsprung disease they thought it wasnt all removed when i was 22 months old and i had double barrel till i was fivethen 40 years later to test i still have it thru out whole intestine glad to see they are still practicing to be doctors and we get to teach them


Bad enough dealing with pancaking and pasty stool. I am totally grossed out at the thoughts of dealing with the prep.. How did you all deal with the prep? I envision sitting on the toilet for a straight 48 hours.

No, you drink the concoction. You wait awhile. Your stomach starts gurgling. Then, it starts. Like a bad high school chemistry gone wrong, you'll start to get output. It's not constant, mine came out like a cup at a time and mostly water. That'll continue til you're done. Then, back to normal. Really no big deal. Just plan on being by a bathroom after drinking stuff and until you go in.


A mi me han hecho varias colonoscopias a través del estoma, me durmieron y no notas nada, cuando despiertas estas feliz con los efectos de la anestesia, no duele nada


I just had a colonoscopy this morning and it was quite easy. General anesthesia, no discomfort. I wouldn’t be concerned about the colonoscopy. The prep was the difficult part. They no longer use that giant bottle of laxative - it’s a series of pills. But the output was large, sudden and intense - and can be overwhelming. I had no gradual warning about the flow. Just make sure you have whatever supplies you’re going to need handy and you will be fine.
