    Colonoscopy

    A colonoscopy gives us the possibility to obtain an overview of the condition of the colon and, if necessary, perform various treatment procedures in this area. Indications for the examination include lower abdominal pain and blood in the stool. The examination is performed by a specially trained physician. You will be given detailed instructions on how to take your medicine and how to eat before the examination. Be sure to tell your physician if you are taking medicines that affect blood clotting. For the colonoscopy to be successful, it is very important that the colon is empty, therefore only very select foods should be eaten the day before the examination, and that the bowel is emptied at home with a special oral solution. A colonoscopy is performed with a flexible instrument equipped with a camera that is inserted through the anus into the colon. During the study, air or water is introduced into the bowel to improve visibility, which causes the bowel to stretch and can cause pain. If necessary, you will be given a sedative or a pain medication. As a rule, you can eat and drink immediately after the test. You may experience mild abdominal pain and bloating for a short time after the examination. Driving is not allowed on the same day after sedation or general anaesthesia. As a rule, a colonoscopy is a well-tolerated study and serious complications are rare.

    At Confido Medical Clinic, a colonoscopy can also be performed under general anaesthesia. In this case, book a full day for the examination as you will need to be in the clinic for a few hours for observation after the examination to recover from anaesthesia.
