A colonoscopy is a type of endocopy which is carried out when a doctor needs to examine your large bowel (large intestine, colon and rectum). A flexible tube about 1cm thick which as a light and camera at one end is passed through the anus and moved around the large bowel to see the lining of the bowel. This is often an outpatient procedure which takes about an hour to complete. After you have recovered from the effects of a sedative, you are usually able to go home.
