Colonoscopy – Recovery

The recovery process for a colonoscopy is almost immediate. Once you're done with the procedure and once the sedation wears off, which takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour, you're able to go and do your regular activities of daily living. The only thing that we tell patients after a colonoscopy is that they can't drive a vehicle or operate any heavy machinery because of the effects of any sedation that has been given. And usually that wears off at the most 24 hours.
