How long after a colonoscopy will you have a bowel movement?

Not worth worrying a

Intestine
Since the bowels are completely emptied before colonoscopy, it can take several days to refill the gut in order to have a BM. So I would not be too concerned, let nature take its course. It usually takes 4 to 7 days to have a BM, yet you should not be obsessed about it.
