Ok, I had sigmoidoscopy done ending of October and he wants me to have a colonoscopy beginning of February. I was just confused why so soon

lacey well I don’t know your specific situation but for me, the sig only sees the lower part and for me it was inflamed so then the dr wanted to see the extent of the inflammation

Since I had severe inflammation he said he couldn't really do colonoscopy but since I don't have any symptoms right now, he wants to check do the colonoscopy and see if it was better now.
