thank you for your question
Can you please describe the pain a little more for me
I mean the location of the pain and the intensity of the pain
It is a feeling of achiness
Mostly across back and left shoulder
and this is since the procedure or did she have some before as well?
There may have been pain in the shoulder before the procedure
I think that the achiness in the back could be due to the posture during colonoscopy or some muscle being pulled. It does not sound like anything serious to me and should settle in due course of time. Usually up to two weeks at the most
So I would not worry
Okay thanks! Was just taking precaution because my mother has high blood pressure and type II diabetes.
I understand, you are most welcome
any more questions?
I was also concerned about the effects of sedation
I do not think it has anything to do with sedation, i mean these symptoms.
but yes sedation may have caused a slightly abnormal posture leading to slight muscle injury causing pain
and wonderedif the pain may be related.
so all in all does not sound like anything serious
Okay, thank you very much!
You are most welcome
Hope she gets well soon
Have a good night
You too :)
