colonoscopy may not be essential to diagnose hemorrhoids, but it can determine if you have hemorrhoidscolon polyps, colon cancer, or other problems in your lower digestive tract.

During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube allows the doctor to view the inside of the entire colon.

How bad is a colonoscopy?

Most people feel nothing more than slight discomfort during the procedure because mild sedation and pain medication are part of the procedure. Some people do not feel much pain even without sedation, but some may experience cramps and pain.

 

How long will I poop after colonoscopy prep?

Bowel movements usually start within two to three hours after taking the prep, but can take longer. If you have not had a bowel movement within three hours of drinking your prep, you may need an extra laxative.

Colonoscopy Is Important Before Haemorrhoids Surgery

Colon cancer develops from polyps, which are small growth of tissue in the gastrointestinal tract. During a colonoscopy, polyps can be identified, removed and tested to determine if they are cancerous or not. Removing these polyps can help prevent them from becoming problematic in the future.
 
And why is a colonoscope necessary before haemorrhoids surgery?

It is good to go through colonoscopy to check and identify the health status of the gastrointestinal tract, especially for those above 40 years old or haemorrhoids patients presented with blood in stool symptom.
 
By doing this can avoid the assumption that hemorrhoids are causing the bleeding and miss out cancer. Most importantly, we do not want to miss out the golden chance in treating colon cancer early if any.
 
Colon cancer is considered as a “silent” cancer, which means that a person could have the disease for many years before experiencing any obvious symptoms. Colon cancer, if detected and treated in its early stages, has a high chance of treatment success and survival rate.
 
Talk to your doctor about the need for colonoscopy screening based on your health status, lifestyle choices and family history.
