These are your doctor s specific instructions. Reviewing and following these instructions will ensure you are properly prepared for your procedure. About Colonoscopy A colonoscopy is a procedure your doctor will perform to examine the lining of your colon (large intestine). The doctor will insert a flexible tube into the rectum and through the colon, looking for abnormalities. Prior to the procedure, you will be given a sedative and pain medication through an IV. Following the procedure, you will be groggy for a few hours and therefore, should not schedule anything else for the remainder of the day. You are NOT allowed to drive for the remainder of the day. It is recommended to have a person over the age of 18 stay with you for 6-8 hours after your procedure. 7 days prior to your procedure Please arrange for a driver who is 18 years of age or older who will accept responsibility for bringing you and taking you home from your procedure. Please let your assigned driver know they will need to be within a 15 minute driving distance from our facility. They will be notified when your procedure is over and MUST be present at your discharge time to receive discharge instructions. You are NOT allowed to take a bus, taxi, Access a Ride, or walk home. If you do not have a responsible driver to take you home, your procedure will be cancelled or rescheduled. Plan on being at our facility for at least 2 hours. Please note you will need to bring your PHOTO ID and INSURANCE CARD with you the day of your procedure. Please prepare and bring a list of your current medications (including non-prescription) and allergies.
