Question Has anyone with CKD, Stage 4 had a colonoscopy?

Hi,

I have Chronic Kidney Disease, Stage 4 with an eGFR of 18, and I will be having a colonoscopy in a couple of weeks. From what I have read some of the preparation liquids that are required could be a problem for someone with kidney disease.

I would appreciate comments from anyone who has advanced chronic kidney disease that has been through the procedure. I am not sure I want to go through with the colonoscopy, but I am having colon issues that need to be investigated. I have heard many negative comments about the procedure and I am not sure what to do.

Thanks in advance. Grayfox

Re: Has anyone with CKD, Stage 4 had a colonoscopy?

I know there are a couple of preparations. My Dad has had a couple of colonoscopies and while he doesn't have kidney disease, he did discuss the med with the pharmacist and was given one that is more gentle. I would call your pharmacy and talk to them to see which prep is better. Don't forget that problems are not guaranteed, just a risk. Talk to your neph and your gastro. Best of luck. Sorry I can't be more help
