Hi,

Has anyone, had a colonoscopy, while taking CellCept? I am having my third one today. I drank the magic potion, and played queen, for a day..having spent most of the morning, on the throne! :lol::lol:

I was not taking CellCept, for the first two tests, however. I am just wondering what the risk of infection is, after such a procedure.

I didn't talk my Rheumy concerning, this test. My family dr. ordered it.

Thank You..And have a great day! :)

Love,
Sandy

Your GI doctor (person doing this test) should know about all your medications prior to this procedure. If you want to be extra cautious, then you can be sure to talk to the doctor right before the procedure about any precautions you need to take given that you are now on Cellcept.

There is a risk of infection with this, but it's pretty low. I had two different antibiotics placed in my IV before I had one done but that was because I have 2 leaky heart valves. And they were definitely going to take some biopsies (plus I ended up needing a polyp removed too which came as quite a surprise to everyone given I was only 37).

Thank You,

Leslie and Maia,

I did have a nurse consult, two weeks prior to today, and told her all the meds, I took. She said to continue taking them all, with the exception of the aspirin and narcotic pain reliever.

I am through fine..The nurses had a hard time getting my i.v. in and stuck me five times..finally, getting it in on the fith attempt in my right hand.

I stayed awake long enough to see some pictures, of the inside of my bowels. I guess, I was very talkative while under! LOL

I had one polyp removed..will, gets results in seven days.

I am glad to get that BEHIND me! :lol::lol::lol:

Thank You, for your replies..

Sandy
