Discuss

your prep with the endoscopist scheduled to perform the exam. Discuss your preferences with the doctor and do it quickly as you don't have enough time to dally if you expect to get the scope successfully completed.

Dr. Eric Kaplan answered:

Need unsedated colonoscopy?

Most patients

Colonoscopy
find mild sedation helpful during a colonoscsopy however many can tolerate the procedure without sedation. Talk with your endoscopist to see if you are a candidate.

Dr. Fidias De Leon answered:

What is it like to have a colonoscopy?

Not as bad :)

Colonoscopy
It is probably not as bad as you may have heard. You are given sedation and for the most part of the study you are asleep. They introduce a camara through your rectum and look throughout your colon. It is over in 20 mins. Good luck!

What should i expect from a colonoscopy?

COLONOSCOPY

Colonoscopy
You can expect to have some form of bowel prep the day before. The day of, you will be given an IV and medications to sedate you. The colonoscopy should take roughly 15-25 minutes to complete depending on findings. You will then wake up and recover (30 minutes or so), and then be discharged home. A relatively safe procedure with few and rare complications.

Dr. Vivek Huilgol answered:

What if the colonoscopy shows something abnormal?

Diagnosis/treatment

Cancer
At colonoscopy most visible abnormalities are either definitively diagnosed via sampling (biopsy) or removed completely also for diagnosis that includes the treatment. Some findings, eg cancer, need definitive treatment via other modes (for example but not limited to surgery).

Why would I have a colonoscopy when anemic?

Looking for cause

Colonoscopy
Your doctor is looking for a reason for your anemia and one possibility is that you have been bleeding from your GI tract without noticing it. There are multiple causes for this ranging from benign to cancer.

Dr. Richard K. Orr answered:

What is a colonoscopy?

Look inside colon

Cancer
You are sedated (very sleepy, but still breathing on your own). The endoscopist places an instrument through your anus and then passes it into the colon to carefully exam the colon for polyps, cancer, etc. If any abnormalities are found a biopsy may be done. Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad.
