I had a colonoscopy done on nov. 13 and the doctorsaid I had a twisted bowel. I was pretty much out of it when he told me this and I was sondering if anyone knew what this meant and how did this bowel get twisted and do they do anything for it. I don't have another appointment with him for 3 months. I do swell in the stomach area. Thanks.

He/she probably observed an error of constriction rather than a looped or twisted bowel, which can kill and would have been addressed immediately.

Lynne, you really should check with your doc, he/she should not object to re-explaining the findings while you aren't being affected by sedatives and/or anesthetics. You should get a written report. I had the report to take home with me after my colonosopy and polyp removal earlier this month, including 5 pictures showing the normal points of special interest to the doc, as well as the polyp and the post-polyectomy, also some small hemorrhoids which were not a concern.
