Anyone here have tortuous colon?

Hi everyone,

I finally got the courage to have a colonoscopy this last Monday. I had a wonderful Gastroenterologist. I didn't feel a thing, and I was thankful for that, because that was what I was most nervous about. The two prep days were horrific, and I am so glad it is over! There were no polyps, and the nurse said everything is fine. They did find a tortuous colon, which my mom also has. It means it is longer than normal, and kind of twisted. Does anyone else here have that? If so, what problems do you experience?

Thanks for your responses!
