I just had a colonoscopy in Jan. 05'. The GI doctor told me that I had internal hemroids. Since then, I've been having pencil thin and flat stools, along with lower back pain. I've been taking Metamucil, along with Colace, would this be a factor?
Hi, I think that the Hemorrhoids could cause the stools to be flat as it is proberbly difficult to get it out. I too suffer from internal and external hemroiihoids and at times my stools are thin. If you had a colonoscopy you shouldn't worry it is more than likely all it is. By the way how was the colonoscopy as i need to have one and am a bit nervous!
The colonoscopy is a breeze. The prep is the worst part. The fleet is awful, and it makes me sick to my stomach. I've had 5 colonoscopies because colon cancer runs in my family, and I always dread the prep. I have another one scheduled for Aug. 05'.
