Will getting a colonoscopy help my stomach pain?

This question was asked in Murray, Utah on 05/07/2012.
I have been sick for 18 months and have lost 30 lbs. I have severe stomach pain. I have diarrhea every day at least 9 or 10 times. I've been to the emergency room and had ct scans. They found feces attached to a wall. I really need help finding a doctor. I was accepted at the hospital for financial help. Do I need a colonoscopy?

Please talk to your primary care doctor about the emergency test results and the need to be examined by a gastroenterologist. There are clinics that are designed for financial assistance, depending on your location.

Yes you should get a colonoscopy.
