This is my second colonoscopy attempt I have also had an attempt at the sigmoid? I am told that due to the twists and turns in my colon that the colonoscopy can not be done. This is very frustrating as my mother had colon cancer and I have been diagnosed with IBS-D. Has anyone else had this problem? What other options are there for screening.
