What is a colonoscopy?

  • A colonoscopy is a test regularly carried out at our Brighton Hospital that allows our consultant to look at the inner lining of your large intestine, (rectum and colon)
  • We use a thin, flexible tube called a colonoscope to look at the colon
  • A colonoscopy helps identify conditions such as ulcers, colon polyps, tumours and inflamed areas of inflammation.

Are there any alternatives to a colonoscopy?

Yes, other options can include a barium enema (an x-ray of the large bowel) or a CT colography (a special scan of the large bowel).

What does a colonoscopy procedure involve?

  • If appropriate, the endoscopist may offer you a sedative or painkiller
  • A colonoscopy usually takes between half an hour and three-quarters of an hour
  • The procedure involves placing a flexible telescope into the back passage and blowing some air into the large bowel to get a clear view
  • The endoscopist will be able to look for problems such as inflammation or polyps
  • They will be able to perform biopsies and take photographs to help make the diagnosis.

What complications can happen?

  • Allergic reaction
  • Breathing difficulties or heart irregularities
  • Making a hole in the colon
  • Bleeding
  • Incomplete procedure.

How soon will I recover from my colonoscopy at Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital?

  • If you were given a sedative, you will normally recover in approximately 2 hours
  • You may feel a bit bloated for a few hours but this will pass
  • Your consultant will report back to you the findings of your colonoscopy
  • Most of our patients are able to go back to work the day after the colonoscopy.

Summary

A colonoscopy is usually a very safe and effective way of finding out if you have a problem with your large bowel.
