Hi there,

Colonoscopy cannot cause hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are dilated veins which can bleed on friction.

Hence you may have developed them in the interim.

Colonoscopy can cause bleeding complication though.

Diverticular disease is caused by the poch formation in colon lining.

You should follow a high fiber diet.

Please take a probiotic daily.

Best wishes

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
