Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A simple test: After appropriate colon preparation at home, arrive at the endoscopy center, change into a gown & IV is inserted. Once in the procedure room, final consent is obtained, IV sedation is given (there are options here--some patients choose no sedation, others want to be "out cold"), & a thin flexible tube with video camera is inserted per rectum & advanced, taking pictures, biopsies, & therapeutics. ...Read more
