Thank you for the query.

Colonoscopy is a very good test for colon cancer and other large intestine diseases diagnostic. It has 98% sensitivity in colon cancer detection. So the chances that something were missed is less than 2%. In practice, it is almost impossible to miss a cancer with this test. Moreover, it takes approximately 10 years for the colon cancer to develop. So in my opinion you have nothing to worry about.
MRI and sonography has ruled out any fistulas or abscesses in this area. So this is also a very good news for you and should make you feel tranquil.

Moreover, you are diagnosed with hemorrhoids. Your pain might be also caused by anal fissure. As this condition causes a lump outside the anus (sentinel pile), it can be misdiagnosed as a hemorrhoid.

Both, hemorrhoids and fissure are caused by constipation due to increased pressure in the rectum. So here is what you should do to get rid of your symptoms:
- avoid constipation (increase fiber XXXXXXX products, mineral water intake, use laxatives if necessary)
- do not push hard on stool
- wash your anus after every stool
- have sitz baths with Quercus Cortex twice a day
- use OTC suppositories for hemorrhoids
Such treatment wont make your hemorrhoids disappear, but it should help with the symptoms in a week or so. Surgery is permanent solution.

One more thing. Sometimes pain in the rectum radiating to the hips can be caused by prostate inflammation. Other symptoms present with this conditions are weak urine stream, burning or pain while urinating, frequent urinating. If you have noticed this symptoms, you should visit urologist.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

Thanks for writing back.

There is a scar tissue in the rectum for sure. This seems to be your main issue and other serious diseases has been definitely ruled out. So no need to worry about any colon cancer or inflammatory bowels disease. Hips pain can be present with rectum diseases. So no need to worry about that either.

Every CT causes some X-rays radiation, that is why it should be done only if necessary.
Ultrasound is thought to be harmless and can be done as often as possible. That is why it is the most popular test during pregnancy (done quite often and no harm for the baby). So ultrasound should not cause any problems. Single CT either.

Hope this will help.

Lets make it as clear as possible for you.
Colonoscopy is a very good test to diagnose whole large intestine (rectum, sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, ascending colon) and part of the small intestine. So your rectum has been checked for sure. Moreover it was checked twice - with colonoscopy and anoscopy. And most likely many times with the finger. You have also had MRI and EUS (sonography). So there is no chance to miss anything in this region. Your only diagnose are hemorrhoids. This is a good diagnose and should make you feel tranquil as it is nothing serious.

If it is about your lower back pain and hips pain, they are most likely caused by spine disc herniation (you havent mentioned the back pain before). Due to disc herniation there is a compression of the spinal cord and/or nerves which are getting out of the spine and go to your legs.
Hips X-ray is a good test for injuries and osteoporosis diagnose. If you want to have proper spine diagnose, I suggest you to visit orthopedist, have physical examination and consider MRI of this region (pelvis MRI is not the same as spine MRI).

Hope this will help.
