Can i go to a party after my colonoscopy? My procedure’s on friday morning and i want to go to a party that night. Is it safe for me to go? Can i drink?
Thanks : Thanks for your question. Generally we advise patients not to drive or operate any heavy machinery until the following day after a colonoscopy, because the medicines used to sedate you can cause cloudy thinking and altered judgment. There is no medical reason you couldn't go to a party if you are feeling up to it, but i would strongly suggest you go with a trusted friend who can drive you and stay with that friend for the duration of the party. Let him/her know that your judgment may be impaired so he/she can "look out" for you. I would suggest not drinking alcohol that night. I hope this answers your question. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
