Three weeks ago I had an urgent colonoscopy and polypectomy.
At that time I was told there was also inflammation which would go away.
Since then I have had variable amounts of red blood in stools and a return of the dull ache both of which preceded the colonoscopy
the bleeding varies and at present seems to be less but it is erratic and one day may differ from another
There is previous history of diverticulitis and extensive diverticulosis throughout the ascending transverse and descending colon
Prior to the endoscopy the surgeon had seriously contemplated laparotomy
The return of the dull ache happens at night and especially when moving in bed
although it is nowhere as severe as it was prior to colonoscopy
During the colonoscopy I felt severe brief pain three times
Also there was a serious drop in blood pressure to 89/46
I am wondering what the follow up will entail and hopefully not another colonoscopy
