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
