A colonoscopy examines the large intestine. Pain in the abdomen can be a challenge to pin down to exact location. A Gastroenterologist will need to do an system review with you to evaluate what if the pain is from your stomach or lower intestine. Please talk to your Primary Care Doctor about a referral to Indianapolis Gastroenterology.
