In brief: Ask your doc

Ask your doc about indication for procedure, nature of procedure, alternatives (including not doing it), significant risks and benefits-whether it is re: sigmoidoscopy, or any other. Doc needs to inform you re: above factors, so you can make an informed consent.
Also can go online to am. Coll. Gastroenterology for information.
