There are so many patients out there who ask me What they can expect during flexible sigmoidoscopy? Flexible sigmoidoscopy is generally well tolerated and rarely causes any significant pain. There may be a sensation of fullness, bloating, pressure, or cramping during the procedure. In most instances, you will be lying on your left side while the instrument is advanced through the rectum and the colon under direct vision on a TV monitor. As the instrument is withdrawn, a careful examination is made by the lining of the colon. The procedure usually takes only 5 to 15 minutes.
