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

Had a colonoscopy yesterday, removed four polyps,one of which had to be clip,how long dose the clip stay in?also not feeling 100% lot of rectal press.

Clip will pass: The clip on the stalk of a polyp will fall off after a few weeks. It will likely pass without you knowing about it. The rectal pressure after colonoscopy is due to irritation of the rectal canal from manipulating the colonoscope during the procedure. It should resolve within a day or two after the procedure. ...Read more
