diarrhea after colonoscopy, Help!!!

Hi everyone.

I just had a colonoscopy today. This is the third colonoscopy I have had in the last 12 years. Well today I got home from the procedure and ate a little something and two hours later I thought I was going to have gas and Nope, I literally pooped myself! I have diarrhea! Well an hour later I had another episode of water stools. Is this normal? I did not have this happen after my last colonoscopy. I normally have issues with Hard poops. Should I be worried?? Anyone else experience this? Thanks for listening.

Diarrhea after a colonscopy has happened to my kiddo more than once
Never was a big issue
But didnít happen after every scope
He has had 7-8 scopes so far
Good luck

I thought about that. Will this quit on it's own?

If you're not going out,I'd wait it out for today.Watch what you eat though.Otherwise Immodium / Loparamide is the way to go.

Perhaps it was a touch of the flu? I mention this because you were concerned about having the possibility of a cold in your other related colonoscopy thread. I hope your feeling better and a good weekend.
