Bowel Problems After Colonoscopy

I had a colonoscopy on Jan 12,2012. Two days after the colonoscopy, I had a bowel movement. It was thin.(sorry to be so graphic)It is now Monday and no normal BM.I was having normal bm's before starting the prep. I started eating a lot right after the colonoscopy.I never had any bm problems before I had this colonoscopy. My exam was normal(no polyps). I was given two tablets to take to prevent nausea from the Anesthesia(propofol) my questions are; What could be causing the thin bowel movement and no bowel movements at all even after eating a lot of fiber and drinking a lot of Water? Does the Anesthesia cause constipation?

Re: Bowel Problems After Colonoscopy

Hi,
I have had two Colonoscopys and have not suffered this problem.
I was not given any medication for Nausea after the local anesthetic and did not suffer any nausea symptoms.
It could be a reaction to the anti-nausea pills but if it continues you should see your Dr.
All the best,

Solofelix.

Re: Bowel Problems After Colonoscopy

Thanks for answering my post. This is the first time I had a problem with a colonoscopy. I did not have a problem like this when I had my last colonoscopy. If I'm still having problems with this tomorrow, I will call the doctor.
