I had a colonoscopy just before Christmas to check for cancer nasties - thankfully none there, not even any polyps. I was dreading the whole thing, especially the gut clearout gunk, but actually it wasn't as bad as I feared, and the sedative during the procedure kept me calm. Since then, i began some Symprove probiotics to help repopulate the gut. Previously I had periodic upper gut pain for years, (called Non Ulcer Dyspepsia by the UK NHS) which I believe to be histamine related and have managed to control better with diet. I also have historic IBS issues. Normally I avoid chocolate, and sugar generally along with gluten and some other things, but over Christmas I had no pain from the chocolate, or really at all! I am back now on my 'cleaner' diet (no or very low sugar, and no processed foods). Anyone else had improvement via a colonoscopy?
