There is nothing about a colonoscopy that prevents a heart attack from happening; you can have one at any time. For some the procedure may elevate stress a bit. I have to say, without wanting to sound morbid, that if I should ever have a heart attack, I hope it is while I am having a colonoscopy or other hospital procedure. I would already be prepped for emergency treatment, and I would already be in the right place.


Yes Tylenol is ok but do NOT take aspirin, advil or any other pain medication. They thin the blood and can cause problems during the procedure.

By colonoscopy is the best procedure to remove the polyps. The colonoscopy procedure is carried out when canal needs to be examined for signs of cancers, ulcers, fistulas or any other such anomalies. A colonoscopy screens for possible colon cancer and other diseases of the bowel or colon. In colonoscopy procedure a thinner tube penetrates patient's colon through anus. Sometimes, when the colon is not well prepared for the colonoscopy, the doctor can pump some air in the colon. This can help the opening of the colon. The whole intestine is easily examined through the colonoscopy. If there are any obstacles, such as polyps are found, a small biopsy instrument reaches the suspect area, and "bites" a piece. In this manner polyps can be removed from the colon.


The doctor begins the procedure by inserting a lubricated, gloved finger into the anus to check for any abnormal masses or blockage.


The procedure is virtually free of any complications and risks. Rarely, (two in 1,000 cases) a perforation (a hole) may occur in the intestinal wall.


A colonoscopy is not a mandatory procedure as part of a general health exam. However, it is recommended for men and women reaching the age of fifty to have one. A colonoscopy is an examination of the large and small bowel with a fibre-optic camera inserted via the rectum. The procedure need not be painful. Some patients are given tranquillisers in advance and some people actually sleep through the process. Your GP may have recommended a colonoscopy if you have had symptoms of haemorrhoids or rectal/bowel discomfort. A colonoscopy can remove any existing polyps or colorectal cancer lesions for biopsy, and to determine if they are precancerous.

Colonoscopy is done under light sedation. You will be able to hear your doctor and move as he instructs, but you will not remember because the sedation causes a short period of amnesia. You will also not remember any discomfort you feel during the test. Within a very short time, the sedation wears off. The MOST you might feel after a colonoscopy is a little more gassy. But you will not have pain or aftereffects from the colonoscopy. Someone will need to drive you home as a precaution since you just had a med in your system.


No you can't. The prep for a colonoscopy doesnt allow you to have any solids or liquids the night before the exam.

In a colonoscopy, a flexible tube with a lighted mirror at the end is threaded through the anus, rectum, and colon to examine the lower part of the large intestines. The patient receives a short-acting sedative which puts the person in a twilight sleep, so they can respond and move as told to do so, but they will not remember the procedure or any discomfort.


NO! Any procedure that needs to be done has to wait until after the baby is born.


A colonoscopy is performed for a variety of reasons. There could be an infection in the intestines, or there could be blood spotted in the stool. The procedure can determine if there are any polyps or other concerns in the body. There are some things to do in order to prepare for the procedure. The scope used is four feet in length, but the entire scope is usually not inserted. After the scope is introduced through the anus, it is slowly moved through the rectum and the colon. In order for the procedure to give clear results, the colon needs to be cleaned. The day before the procedure, you will be given a drink to consume. This drink will act as a strong laxative in order to clean out the colon. You should also try to maintain a clear liquid diet for a few days before the procedure.The procedure of a colonoscopy is often not painful as you are either heavily sedated or fully asleep. It is an outpatient procedure in most cases unless you are already in the hospital. If something is found during the procedure, then the doctor might decide to admit you to the hospital for further tests. Intravenous fluids are started before the colonoscopy begins. You will be placed on a heart monitor to examine heart rhythms and other vital signs. The sedative will be given through the IV. More medication can be given during the procedure to make you comfortable. The procedure is generally completed while you lay on your left side. When the tip of the scope reaches the colon, it is slowly withdrawn so that the doctor can examine the colon carefully. The procedure takes about 20 minutes to an hour depending on what the doctor is looking for and what is found. If areas of the colon can't be seen, then the doctor might order an X-ray or reschedule the procedure.


If you can do a noninvasive procedure versus an invasive procedure, the attending physician, if any good at all, will always go with the noninvasive technique. If ever a noninvasive procedure can be done, it will always out weigh the invasive procedure.


A local variable is only available for use in the procedure it was declared in. Most variables are local. Once the procedure ends, the variable is lost, but as the procedure has done its job, that is not a problem. The opposite is a global variable which is declared outside all procedures and is available for use by any of them.A local variable is only available for use in the procedure it was declared in.
