Comment from: Vish, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: July 30

I had my sigmoidoscopy on a Monday afternoon, the result showed normal, and I went home. Tuesday morning as usual I went to the office but I had this small stomach ache problem, but it became worse and I went home. It only got worse and towards night I had started having frequent bowel movements along with tiny amount of blood, so next day morning I went to the doctor. He told me it maybe colitis caused by the sterilizing agent in sigmoidoscopy tube or enema. Today it's Friday and am still hospitalized.
