Why do I have to have somebody with me when I have a colonoscopy done? I am having a colonoscopy done this tuesday. And it tells me I need to have somebody with me. What happens if I cannot find anyone to go with me? I do not drive and will be taking a ca
The reason for having someone with you is that you will be getting sedation for your procedure and it would not be safe for you to drive afterwards. Most facilities also ask that you not take a cab or bus after sedation, though it can be argued that this might be overly cautious.
You should contact the facility you're going to, explain that you plan to take a cab, and ask if that would be okay. They may ask you to sign a waiver of liability, but will probably be willing to go forward. ...Read more
Fissure&hemerhoid pain much worse after colonoscopy, can the scope going in make these conditions worse? Dr cant see me until august to give results
Painful condition: The colonoscopy should not cause a measurable worsening of your condition, but the procedure may cause temporary irritation and a transient increase in pain. The underlying problem may be getting worse, though, so if the worsening persists, tell your doctor or seek additional care. ...Read more
Probably: If nothing is found that is fine. All too often waiting a long period of time, that is when colonoscopy should at least be initiated at age 40, one finds that there is a fully developed malignancy.

Yes: The purpose of a colonoscopy is to look at the entire inner lining of the colon. The cleaner the colon is the better the results of the test. Bowel prepping - taking a prescribed laxative to clean out the colon - induces diarrhea. The idea is to get everything out of the colon so your doctor can visulaize as much of the colon as possible. I often recommend desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) to help protect the skin! ...Read more
Colonoscopy may be done in a doctor's office, clinic, or a hospital. The test is most often done by a doctor who works with problems of the digestive system (gastroenterologist). Some family doctors, internists, and surgeons are also trained to do colonoscopy.

No Not Safe: You are given sedation before colonoscopy&you are discharged with instructions not to drive as you will still have effect of the seadatives used. If some one can drive you to work&your work involves sit down job only. And some one will drive you home. In that case you may be able to show up at your job. You may still be sleepy& groggy and may not be able to do much. Show your boss discharge instruction ...Read more

Well in terms of something going horribly wrong, as small a chance as that might be, is one safer than the other? Colonoscopy vs gastroscopy.
Both are very safe: Modern colonoscopy and EGD are extremely safe. Complications are rare. Probably the most common complication is perforation, and it reportedly occurs in about one of every 1200 colonoscopies and about one every 2000 upper endoscopies. There are rare risks of bleeding and of a reaction to the sedation. Overall, they are extremely safe, and if you have a reason for needing one, don't shy away. ...Read more
