. I went to get a routine colonoscopy two days ago. They found a small polyp. Nothing major. Everything was fine, then the morning after the procedure, I woke up with chills and a high fever. I went to the ER and was immediately admitted. Somehow from when I got colonoscopy and until the next day I was diagnosed with colitis and we are still trying to find out the strain of bacteria that caused it. They could have killed me. I have never been this sick in my life.
