I have really bad GI issues. I have an ulcer and it doesn’t aid any processes of anything. I’ve never had an AF but I have had countless colonoscopies and endoscopies and if you let them do what they need to do it will help you get better. So sorry you’re going through this! Hope you feel better.

As a medical bee, I say follow your Dr’s advice. If you do indeed need a scope they will sedate you to make you more comfortable during the procedure.  Don’t let this go untreated.

As a bee with a lot of digestive problems please do what your doctor advises.  All forms of testing, and I’ve had a lot, are worth it.  You need to be sure what is going on and then you can choose the best course of treatment.  I had all the testing, and then chose to go a holistic route for dealing with my problems.  I’m very happy and healthy, but couldn’t have gotten to this point without the testing.

Here is some info I found online about treatments.  I would go to a doctor to talk about it, they might have treatments to suggest before the scope.  I’m guessing they would only do the scope if you needed surgery to heal it.

@anony57: I do not have anything medical to add, just wanted to say that I hope you feel better soon and hope that all goes well!

Medical Bee in training here. I would recommend listening to your Dr. and having the colonoscopy done to make sure there arent any serious problems. You can do it under anesthesia and won’t feel a thing. 🙂

In the mean time, take a warm bath each day and soak your bottom (bring a bridal magazine and a glass of wine) The warm water will help bring blood flow to the fissure and help it heal.

Also, when you have to go to the bathroom, wet the toilet paper with warm water to clean up because it will be softer and less irritating.

No need to be embarassed. I’ve seen many women with this problem. You’re not alone.

trust your doctor! If you don’t have faith that they are giving you sound advice ask more questions or get a second opinion. I have spent the last few years with a ton of medical people telling me what to do (breast cancer). Asking questions is not bad, telling doctors that you don’t love their idea is ok too, but tell them that so they can give you the next best option or explain the consequences. Trust me, I did not like the core needle biopsy, and when the numbing meds didn’t work I wanted to scream, but I knew the consequences and chose to let them harpoon my boob two more times.
