Failed prep for colonoscopy: What can I do?

I have Diverticulosis not Diverculitis is what the nurse said. Diverculitis is when you have infection, and I don't, just inflammation. I had no problem with the prep for my initial colonoscopy except it was unpleasant. My colon isn't narrowed, it is very stretched out from having previous episodes of constipation building up in my colon expanding my colon. It stretched it like filling a water balloon then when you let it out it's stretched out of shape and floppy. That's how she explained it. And it's also been left with many irritated pouches which should hopefully be ok, but is at a higher risk of peforating my bowel because of the number of them and the severity of the inflammation. She said the damage is already done, and there's probably not much that can be done now to undo it, but they still need to see all my colon because everyone needs a screening for colon cancer, and he also wants to see what if any damage is in the loop and on the other side of my bowelthat he couldn't get to. I didn't understand ANY of this before yesterday, and it's still very new to me, but at least I know it's nothing serious and nothing to worry about.

I have a twisted colon from my C-section. Evidently the lady substitute doctor instead of leaving my intestines in place pulled them out put them on the table took the baby out put intestines ,colon back in. As old as I an with a twisted colon, I have not had one colonoscopy. I only had one poop test. The colonoscopy doc, told me. I can't do a colonoscopy. It was a Y2K baby it's possible she was just mad or jealous I don't know cuz that's what women are sometimes. So New Year's 2000 she had to come to work, probably after celebrating the 100 year anniversary of New Year's, so maybe she had a hangover. Meantime my life is ruined sort of. All difficult I'm 64. Maybe she was mad because I timed it to be Jan 1, 2000. I know my educated doctor would never have done that. I think there's a lot of women out there that didn't have their husbands seeing what they were doing and maybe had a C-section and maybe (docs don't want to call out them so may have hidden that fact, if had surgery there, ask ) had the same thing happen to them where it got twisted and they don't realize it's the C-section. It even took her a couple hours to take the baby out and he was standing up! Feet first! PAST time err plus infection from hsp, water balloon tummy I said something wrong with this, but had me discharged anyway. Err a week later they called me back …so incompetent.
Anybody want to discuss this lifelong injury give me an email as those kind of doctors should have some kind of repercussions I think. eDutyNow on g mail help yourself by not eating any meat at all, no animal at all no dairy no cheese you'll have a better outcome as far as if there is some kind of action done as a class. When you're in law school that's the first thing they teach you all about is the medical field. It bothers me when people don't realize it's because of their stomach surgery C-section or something else that they have a twisted colon. Good luck
