Colonoscopy : You will have multiple loose bowel movements that will eventually turn to clear. You may have soreness in the rectal area from the multiple bowel movements. When you go for the procedure itself , you should not feel anything. Afterwards the nurse will ask you to pass the gas that helped to inflate your colon and then they will send you home. You may still be drowsy from the anesthesia after.
