What Happens After My Flexible Sigmoidoscopy?
After your flexible sigmoidoscopy is completed:
- If you did not receive a sedating medication, your doctor will instruct you on your procedure results and follow-up care.
- If you received a sedating medication, the nurses will observe you until you are fully awake. Once you are alert, you will be able to speak with your doctor about your procedure and follow-up care.
- If you received sedating medication, you will need to have someone escort you home.
