Your procedure will be completed as an outpatient procedure, which means you will need a driver to take you home. You CANNOT take public transportation, such as a bus or taxi. You will not be permitted to WALK home.

For colonoscopy and/or EGD procedures, your total time at the hospital will be approximately 2 - 2 1/2 hours. A list of instructions will be provided to you prior to your scheduled procedure. They are also available below. Your physician will determine which prep is best for you.

Your physician will speak with you after your procedure. Please encourage the person accompaning you to take notes. If a biopsy is taken, please allow one week for results to arrive at the office.

For your first meal after the procedure, we suggest a light meal, such as scrambled eggs. You may be sleepy and require a couple of naps. You should be able to return to work the next day.
