Colonoscopy is an invasive medical test that is useful to look at the inner lining of large intestine (rectum and colon). It may be done for several reasons such as to check for colorectal cancer or polyp, diagnose the cause of blood in the stool or rectal bleeding, change in bowel habits, chronic diarrhoea.
Colonoscopy is a common and safe medical procedure but complications can occur. Consult your doctor if you develop any signs and symptoms suggestive of complications after an colonoscopy such as severe pain in abdomen, blood in stool, fever, nausea and vomiting or high fever.
