Good to know
Colonoscopy is performed using intravenous general anaesthesia, so the subject does not experience any discomfort. The examination is supervised by an anaesthesiologist-reanimatologist and the patient does not experience any discomfort.
If polyps are detected during colonoscopy, a separate procedure - endoscopic polypectomy - is carried out to remove them.
General anaesthesia is applied to a patient before examination. The patient is lying on the side during the examination. A special device, a flexible thin endoscope, is slowly introduced through the anus, allowing the doctor to examine the entire large intestine.
The duration of the examination is 15-60 minutes. After examination, the patient is still asleep for a while.
You will spend 2-3 hours at the clinic.
- After colonoscopy examination you will spend around 1 hour in the waking ward.
- You may feel bloated, pain. This usually goes away quickly.
