Just curious if anyone else has gotten sick or had a bad infection from having a colonoscopy done in Somerset. Two of my sisters have been very sick following colonoscopies. One awhile back. And now, my sister who just had one done on Wed. Or Thursday, is desperately ill. She just left a local hospital, was given TWO full bags of antibiotics intravenously & has to keep getting it that way for two more weeks. They found she has two different serious bacterial infections.
She was NOT sick & had nothing at all wrong BEFORE the colonoscopy.
Something certainly seems fishy!! I've talked to others in my county who had them done in Somerset & have had health issues ever since. So. What's up with that?
How nasty is the hospital there. Is this being done on purpose? I can't imagine it could make this many people sick if it were an accident.

No, I have several of them done since colon cancer is prevalent on my fathers side of the family and I have never once been sick from them. Sounds like they need to go somewhere else.

thanks wonderful that you've done well with yours. I'm glad for that. Gives me hope. But I'm sk concerned about my sister right now. Just trying to figure this thing out. Just seems odd to me she got this sick immediately after hers. And that my other sister had problems too. Just not as bad as this sister. Thanks for your reply.

My spouse and I both have had them and never had any problems with them. Sometimes if they remove polps you shouldn't eat for awhile after their removal. Maybe they had a dormat infection before they had them done and after it was done the infection came out. Something like diverticulitis. So many reasons that a doctor should do the diagnosing.

Colon cancer is one of the number 1 cancers that kill but it is one of the most preventable and treatable if caught in time. Everyone over the age of 60 should have a colonoscopy at least every couple of years. My father died of colon cancer and it is the most painful cancer you can die from. [according to doctors]

Our local hospital is filthy and you would be down right suprised out how many people go in for routine procedures and never go home again. It will keep happening until someone has the nerve to take them on in a court of law and not "settle" for a little bit of cash. I wouldn't get treated at that hospital if my life depended on it.

After suffering that humiliating procedure , sick as a dog , my bride decided she wanted to drive down to Somerset for the rest of the day - There I was , curled up in the back seat , trash can in the floor , upchucking my last weeks meals , and she was drivin' & smilin'- I got no sympathy -

"What 7", you can't target one particular place in reality. If lawsuits are brought forth and lawsuits are won, then I'm sure they've been deserved. Thousands of cases are brought against health care facilities around the country on a daily basis. If LCRH was the soul habitual offender of any malpractice in particular, they'd eventually be forced to shut down if the situation(s) weren't rectified. No insurance company would touch them otherwise...

I must say "Nope", I don't recall saying LCRH was the "soul habitual offender". I only speak of LCHR, because I have been a patient there and also know folks who work there. Employess and patients are the ones that pay LCHR's outrageous insurance bills...so the big wigs aren't losing anything. I only stated facts....the hospital is filthy and I wouldn't go there again if my life depended on it. Thank you for your opinion though.

I don't remember the procedures, I was a little sick and it doesn't sound pretty when your intestines start going back into shape, so go with someone you feel very comfortable with. It's going to be a noisey ride back home. What I hated was drinking the stuff and the first time I was scheduled, I was down to my last glass and threw all of it up. I had to cancel and start over. Next time he prescribed pills, 6 every hour, I thought that would be a piece of cake. Wrong! Imagine licking on a block of sulphur rock. I took all of them had the procedure done and the rest of it felt like a piece of cake. Turned the radio up on the way home and pretended like there was extra drums in the music.

I woke up playing the bugle and then got embarrassed when I heard a little old lady on the other side of the curtain in recovery

I had Dr. Cook also....he does a great job but I thought it was a little pricy to have to pay a 300+ dollar office visit after I was already scheduled for the procedure so the nurse practitioner could fill out 3 questions on a sheet of paper (could have been done day of procedure just as easily) and then another 300+ dollar visit after the procedure to be asked if any problems and told ok go home...had to wait 45 minutes to get in to see nurse pract. again for this...insurance didn't pay but small part of this as they deemed it wasn't needed. Guess who had to pay?
