I had a gallstone stuck between my gallbladder and pancreas


Quoting Tal0n:

Endoscopy goes down your throat.  Not sure how they'd remove a gallstone that way.  A colonoscopy is really no big deal.  Like I said, the worst part is the air you have to pass afterward.  And trust me; I know.  I have severe Ulcerative Colitis with Crohns complications.  My insides look sunburned and are bloody and inflamed.  While it can be scary, a colonoscopy isn't going to hurt much at all.  Just, like I said, remember to ask them to make sure to suck out as much air as possible when they're done.


Quoting Mommyofadiva2:

Colonoscopy I believe my friend told me it will hurt more then I think I have already had a endosopy to have a gallstone removed a couple years ago





Quoting Tal0n:

What kind of scope?  Endoscopy or colonoscopy?  Are they doing a contrast MRI and small bowel study as well?  Hope it all turns out okay!!

(If you can't tell...this is an area I have some...*cough* experience in *cough4colonoscopy'sbefore30cough*.)  If it's a colonoscopy, the prep is a bitch, but make sure you tell the dr to suck as much air out when he's done as he can.  They expect you to pass it, but it's INCREDIBLY painful for me, so my GI's always have me remind them before I go under.  It's scary, but you'll be okay.  :)
