Got hemorrhoid because of preparation I was doing for colonoscopy. Can I still have colonoscopy?

In brief: Yes

prepping for colonoscopy often causes a hemorrhoidal flair. This will cool down, use some OTC suppositories, and all will be well

In brief: See ans

As long as you took all of your opted drink to clean out the colon you should be good for your colonoscopy.
Just be sure to drink it all!

In brief: Yes

Having a hemorrhoid will not influence the outcome of the colonoscopy though it might make it a bit more uncomfortable.
