Default Is there a Gastroenterologist on this site?

I know there is probably technical word for what I want to say, but I don't have them, so.......
In a colonoscopy procedure is there a reason the gastroenterologist would be ramming the garden hose into the colon like a jack hammer busting up a sidewalk?

And if that did happen would that be a strong contributing factor in chronic constipation after the colonoscopy?

If that's the problem and the cause, you'll need to come to the US for the solution.

That sounds pretty technical.... and also a scary picture.
You're not helping at all with somebody's reluctance to participate in that activity but hopefully your " asking for a friend " and walking around just fine... I hope.
All my best Garrett.

Who is awake during a colonoscopy to know that it was put into the colon like a jack hammer?

Nah that's my butt we're talking about Gerald. I've got all the luck.
I'll guarantee you though, if this wasn't a public forum my word selection wouldn't have been so kind.
I've had five scoping so far with the first one with no sedation what so ever (I'll NEVER do that again! That just wasn't right.), the next three I was fully out (the only way to do it, a walk in the park), but this last one I was only partially out (some new BS protocol so they told me) not so fun(I don't need to feel my back end being violated - I'll NEVER do that again either!).

Doesn't sound like a colonoscopy? maybe it was some other type of procedure. What were they looking for? Car keys?

You probably felt the air being pumped in, you know, so they could have an easier time ramming the garden hose in. You did remember to do the prep right? That could explain the "ramming' sensation.

Sounds like you got the colonoscopy with the "happy ending".

Actually, the cleaning before the colonoscopy can result in an equal but opposite effect after the procedure. In other words, yes, you can get plugged up. Some Dulcolax stool softener or laxative will help until you "normalize".

I had the procedure back in Nov. and still haven't normalized. Prior to the scope I was working perfectly.
I take to much laxative, a stool softener and prune juice just to maybe go the next day, if I don't do that stuff a week could pass without going.

You will never get a doc to admit that a colonoscopy can have adverse effects unless an obvious perforation happened. They will blame diverticula or polyps or other sh*t. If you google IBS ( no not internet brands) after colonoscopy you will find lots of anecdotal reports, but those are pretty regularly dismissed. Try a course of probiotics like Align.
