I recently had a colonoscopy and an upper GI. The doctor who did this procedure said he had to change the scope three times because of abdominal scarring and said I must have had surgery at one time on my abdomen. I've never had any of these surgeries, but two years ago I had a colonoscopy and there was no mention of scarring. I had these tests done because I have diverticula and got diverticulosis and was put on antibiotics and something else.
I am 67 and have had two children. My question is how did I get scarring and what now?
