Re: Colonoscopy prep will cause a flare-up
I don't agree that the prep will definitely cause pain. What medications are you concerned about ?
I do a lot of posting about colonoscopy. This is a procedure that conjures up all kinds of fears, and the anticipation is by far, the worst part of the whole thing. I can't tell you how many folks have come back to report how right that is!
I would go ahead with the colonoscopy, and not avoid it because of your perceived pain fear...It is a routine procedure for people with all kinds of digestive problems, and I honestly have never heard of one person who could not handle the prep because of pain. The prep is designed for use for colonoscopy, rather than a regular laxative.
Good luck, and let us know what happens.
