Things You Should Know RegardingColonoscopy

Colonoscopy is a medical endoscopic examination procedure which

enables the medical examiner to evaluate the inside the large intestine,

large bowel (also called as colon) and some distal parts of the small

bowel. During this procedure a colonoscope, a flexible, long tube of half

inch diameter which has a CCD camera or fiber optic camera with a

small source of light at one tip, is used. This tube is inserted inside the

human body through the rear end to get the inner image of the colon.

generally colonoscopy is done when doctor wishes

Generally, colonoscopy is done when doctor wishes to screen your

large bowel and large intestine in detail. Here are some details about this

procedure that can help you understand this process:

It is usually done to identify signs of cancer

It is done to find the presence of any polyp or any other signs of cancer in

that certain body part. Apart from sending the pictures of rectum and

colon lining, the doctors can also remove small polyps from there or can

even take tissue samples of polyps for further examination.

Special diet is suggested to the patient before undergoing

this examination

For doing colonoscopy, the colon should be absolutely clean and cleared.

So, patients are given special diet suggestions along with a prescribed

meditation to that can help in cleaning the colon. In general, liquid diet

is preferred along with large volume of special cleansing solution so as to

eliminate all obstructing residuals to get accurate result of the test.

It can only be done by experts

It is a specialized medical examination procedure that can only be done

by the expertise under the complete medical guidance . Not all

diagnostic centers can perform it. And this has to be done strictly in a

private room of either doctor’s clinic or hospital or at surgery center or in

specialized diagnostic center. This can be done only if doctor has

suggested and prescribed for it.

There are no major side effects of this procedure

Before conducting a colonoscopy, patient is kept under observation to

monitor the right blood pressure and heart rhythm. Sedatives are given

to the patient to make them feel relax and comfortable during the

examination. However, after the colonoscopy the patient might feel a bit

pressure or bloating or cramping in the abdomen, which will

automatically vanish over the period of time.

So, if you or your any friend or other near and dear one has been

suggested colonoscopy then there is nothing to worry about. It’s a simple

procedure which can be done easily while taking small precautions in

consideration.
