A Colonoscopy Is Quite Normal

Colonoscopy is an outpatient procedure that lasts for about 30 to 60 minutes, and this is done to detect the presence of cancerous cells, tissue inflammation and ulcers. Your doctor may have recommended that you go in for a colonoscopy if you have been complaining of sudden weight loss or drastic changes in your bowel movement patterns.
Do not worry too much if you have been advised to get a colonoscopy done, because it’s quite a normal procedure. It has been designed to guard against bigger and more serious health problems. To get ready for this procedure is not too difficult, as it only requires a few changes in eating habits.
Your doctor will ask you to go on a diet low in fiber or liquid diet, on the day before the exam. You also may be asked to avoid solid food completely before the procedure, because it is important that all traces of fibers removed from your stomach before a doctor performs the test. For those with irregular bowel movements, your doctor may recommend laxatives to get all the waste disposed of the body.
Once you are in the hospital on the scheduled date and time, the first blood pressure and pulse will be recorded. You also may be given a sedative to promote complete relaxation. Once the test is completed, the doctor will prescribe the right medicine for you and you can return home within a few hours.
