Pain from colonoscopy after almost 5 years of hysterectomy

Has anyone had a colonoscopy after a complete hysterectomy and had pain from possible tearing of adhesions? It has been 6 weeks and a general surgeon believes my pain is from adhesions or scar tissue torn during my colonoscopy. Are there any suggestions for pain relief?

Pain from colonoscopy after almost 5 years of hysterectomy

I will tell you my experience with a colonoscopy that was performed prior to my last adhesion surgery. They were checking to make sure that it was not GI issues before operating. A 15 min test took over 3 hours because they could not even pass a pediatric scope through due to adhesions twisting my bowel. It was to apoint I was screaming and crying and they called the anesthesiologist in and they put me under general anesthesia to finish the test...I was wide awake prior even though they gave me all the good stuff because of the pain. My GI doc said that he had never seen anything like it since he has been practicing. It is very possible this could have happened. You should ask your GI doc if he/she had any difficulty passing the scope or was the colon rigid..get the report from the hospital. I experienced a lot of pain in addition to the adhesion pain I had before the procedure for about 2 weeks.
