Before reporting for the procedure, please follow overnight instructions given to you by doctor or the lab technician.
Colonoscopy is usually done as an outpatient or day care procedure. Before your procedure, you will be asked to dress into a hospital gown and to lie on your left side with your legs in a curled position. The procedure itself usually takes about 20-30 minutes. But, you should consider about 2-3 hours of time in totality, considering everything from preparation to treatment, colonoscopy, and recovery.
