Patient Comments (1)
in West Des Moines, IA |
I have used Dr Kaufman in the past with no problem but this time he had me do 3 days of prep before my colonoscopy. It caused a rectal prolapse. My colon pushed out of my body and made a J. Impossible to have regular bowel movement, only tiny ones. I have terrible pain in the stomach, constant nausea, vomiting, and tremendous back pain. Metro prolapse surgery a few days ago. I now have to heal from that. Pain still severe so had a steroid injection in my tailbone. Have EGD next to stop pain
