In brief: Could be normal

are you sure you had General Anesthesia? It's very unusual for colonoscopy.
However you did have tube in your mouth breathing that's good cause sore throat. If you're a smoker sometimes it's normal to caugh as you wake up. In most patient this resolves in 2 to 3 days. If you have difficulty breathing, have fever, or coughing up yellow and green stuff you should talk to your doctor
