Did my GI doctors do a colonoscopy too soon?

Is it possible for a doctor to do a colonoscopy too soon? Resulting in nothing showing up on the colonoscopy? Looking for answers!

    Yes I have, it showed little inflammation due to excess acid production he said, didn’t say much about it. I just had my results come back from stool sample, Negative as well. I’m wondering if it’s arsenic poisoning. I work in an automobile factory assembly. I due have little whites spots on tip of finger nails with horizontal ridges

    Hi @joejax24,

    I know it’s so frustrating not having answers straight away. A colonoscopy may not have given you answers, but fortunately there are so many other options. A pill cam, stool sample and blood test options are all possibilities.

    Hi @joejax24,

    Have you had a pill cam done? It may be that you have inflammation elsewhere in your digestive system rather than your colon. It could be your small intestine that is effected.
