Is Actonel Safe Before Colonoscopy
How safe is colonoscopy? Suppose to have one, scared to death about it! Any advice to help subside my fears. Thanks!
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
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
