Gastroenterologist reviews in Mount Shasta
I went in to have a thrombosed hemorrhoid removed. During the prep, I repeatedly informed the staff and Dr.
Also during prep, they asked me to sign a consent form. I reviewed and there was a part that mentioned where my doctor had informed me of all the risks. He had not, so I did not sign the form, wanting to know from him what those risks were.We had done some online research and knew of a few risks, but our error was searching for info on the surgery, NOT the recovery. That was probably my biggest mistake. Dr.
Post surgery, Dr.
I did try to take it because the pain was incredible- nothing I've ever experienced before. And I threw it right back up - because I am allergic to codeine. We called the on-call doctor and he told me to take Tylenol,so I did. After four days, I could not stand, walk or sit for longer than 10 minutes.

WHY had this not been mentioned, discussed or suggested prior to surgery OR during my repeated calls? Dr.
While I am healing and the surgery seems to have been a "success", it has been four weeks (not days, Dr.
Had an initial meeting with Dr and together we made the best choice for me. I was provided with absolutely every detail necessary to safely complete the prep. Four days before the colonoscopy, I received a message from the surgical center inviting me to watch 2 videos on-line that would review the procedure I was about to undergo. Three days before the colonoscopy, I received a telephone call from the surgical center and we reviewed my health history and my colon prep instructions to make sure that I was all set.
