Brief Answer: Nothing to worry about. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. It seems that you had a colonic spasm while having a colonoscopy. This is a normal physiological finding and might cause some difficulty in perfoming the colonoscopy. Sometimes it may be related to diverticulosis. Right now there is no need to worry. Just wait for the reports as this is nothing serious. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
