Anatomical variation – A high cecum ( Colonoscopy )

I’ve just had a colonoscopy! You can hear my thoughts on it here:-

It DID confirm what I was told a long time ago – that I have a very high cecum. To explain that, here are two simple diagrams.

colon-both

colon-normal

colon-me

As you imagine my anatomy presents a new challenge for a novice colonoscopist! Luckily the scope was still long enough to find it’s way through my entire, long, twisty and awkward bowel!
