Re: Reflux and ability to have a colonoscopy
I recommend having a Gastroenterologist do the colonoscopy. Talk to the GI doc about your issues when you plan the scope. There are different ways to do the prep and the doctor may have some recommendations to make things easier for you.
I had just had reflux surgery a week prior to having my colonoscopy. They were very caring and gentle with me to help keep from making things worse. There were several preps I couldn't use due to the surgery I'd just had.
If you have a trusted Pharmacist, try asking them about the prep as well.
No matter the discomfort now, it is certainly a good idea to get that colonoscopy.
