I had a colonoscopy and found out my colon is twisted and they removed several polyps. How long should the pain in my abdomen last? Is that normal to have pain?

In brief: Some pain is normal

Some pain and disconfort after colonoscopy is expected.
You can expect to be back to normal in 3 to 5 days. The pain should slowly diminish. If the pain increases, becomes intolerable, or is associated with other symptoms like fever or blood when you go to the bathroom, you should consult with the physician that made the procedure!
