What Happens After a Colonoscopy?

The patient will go home later the same day when having a colonoscopy, because it is done as an outpatient procedure (without checking into the hospital). But before going home, the patient will be observed for some time and monitored until the effects of the medications have resolved. The patient should make arrangements for someone to come to the clinic and take them home, because nausea, bloating, and drowsiness can continue for some time after the procedure. Recovery time after the procedure can vary. If there are no complications it can range from a few yours to a few days.
