Routine colonoscopy by Dr Edmison in Nov, 2018. Went home, bled profusely. Lost over a pint via my tender anus over the next 12 hours. Went to Grand Strand Med ER ($300 Blue Cross co-pay surprised me) but they could/ would only "observe". I passed out at one point. I seem to have fully recovered since then and do not intend to pursue anything beyond this review. Not as much annoyed that doc sent me home bleeding as I am that Strand GI won't acknowledge any bleeding in the final report.
