Step 1 Treatments we offer Step 1 Painkillers are given to the patient along with the sedatives. Moderate sedation is also known as “conscious sedation” is one in which you are sleepy and can respond to verbal commands or physical stimulation. There is no or little effect on breathing or cardiac function. An intravenous line in your arm is established for the infusion of anaesthetic drugs and other fluids. You will be asked to lie on an examination table on your left side with your knees drawn towards your chest. This position enables the doctor to get a better view of your colon. 2. Step 2 Treatments we offer Step 2 The doctor will insert the colonoscope gently through your anus and guide it through your rectum into the colon. When the colonoscope is inserted, you might feel cramping in your abdomen or an urge to pass stools but this feeling is temporary and it reduces after some time. The colonoscope has a small camera attached at its end that helps in transmitting live images onto a monitor. This enables the doctor to study your colon in detail and look for any abnormality. 3. Step 3 Treatments we offer Step 3 The colonoscope also has a tube that allows the doctor to pass an inert gas into your colon. This inflates your colon, providing a clearer view.Your doctor may talk to you and explain what is being done during the procedure.The doctor will examine the colon for abnormalities such as polyps or other abnormal growths. In some cases, tissues are removed by instruments inserted through the colonoscope, for further examination in the laboratory (biopsy). Want to know more about our experts? Request a FREE Consultation What is a Colonoscopy? A colonoscopy is an outpatient procedure performed by the doctor to examine the inside of your large intestine, using an instrument called a colonoscope. The large intestine is the main part of your digestive system. It helps in processing the undigested food, reabsorbing water and maintaining the balance of body fluids, and storing waste before removing it out from the body. The colon is the biggest part of your large intestine. Colon empties into the rectum (the last portion of your large intestine) where the stools are stored temporarily. The rectum empties into the anus, which is the opening for the excretion of stools out of your body.During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into your rectum. A miniature camera is attached at the tip to view the inside lining of your rectum and colon. 1. When is a Colonoscopy Performed? when is colonoscopy performed?Your doctor may recommend a colonoscopy to investigate bleeding from the anus or rectum or an ongoing, unexplained weight loss. Undiagnosed pain in the abdomen, chronic diarrhea, ulcers, strictures, and diverticula are some of the factors that will be investigated by your doctor. Change in bowel movements or checking any cancerous or noncancerous growths in the colon or rectum is done by your doctor. This is done by performing a biopsy. Removal of growths (polyps), and haemorrhoids (piles)Colonoscopy is recommended in people who are in the age group of 50 to 75 years and if you are at an increased risk of colorectal cancer. You are at a higher risk of colon cancer if you have had removal of polyp previously or a prior history or a family history of colon cancer. Another factor of recommendation would be if you have inflammatory bowel disease. 2. PreOperative Care preopertative careYour doctor will discuss your medical history, the current medications that you are taking and any history of allergies and will inform you about the procedure and its risk. Then, you will be advised to stop some medications (like blood thinners, to prevent the formation of clots) or to adjust the dosage of other medications, a few days before your procedure.You will be instructed by your doctor to follow a diet for your bowel preparation. You must have clear liquids for 2 to 3 days before your procedure. The bowel preparation diet will include broth, gelatin, plain tea/coffee, juice without the pulp, etc. This will help in better visualisation of your colon during the procedure. Later, you will be asked to take a laxative one night before (12 hours) the procedure as advised by your doctor. It can be in a pill, powder or liquid form that must be taken with water/mixed in water. 3. PostOperative Care PostOperative careAfter the procedure, you will be told to lie on your back for a few minutes before getting up as you may have giddiness from having your head down during the procedure and/or anaesthesia. During this time your vital signs such as body temperature, pulse rate, and blood pressure will be monitored. Then, you will be observed for over an hour after the procedure to check for any bleeding, pain, or any other abdominal discomfort. Once you are able to walk and the symptoms resolve, you will be allowed to go home. You can drive or you can arrange for a person to take you home.
