Just wondering if someone can explain what happens during a colonoscopy?
I've been referred to the bowel clinic at my local hospital & I had a phonecall from the clinic today. The doctor on the phone told me she was referring me for a colonoscopy as I am bleeding every time I go to the loo & get mucous too. As I have got widespread endo including on my bowels she said that they want to check to see if the endo is actually in my bowel, as well as checks for bowel cancer, crohns disease ect. She said it'll be a 5 week wait but may be sooner as I am on the cancellation list, so I'd just like to basically know exactly what will happen? Thanks xxx
