The procedure itself will take about 15-20 minutes. However please allow for 2 hours at the clinic for pre and post operative assessments.
An intravenous (IV) will be started so that the doctor can give you sedating medication to make you feel relaxed and sleepy. You may be awake during the procedure but will be unlikely to remember specific details. You may feel uncomfortable for short periods of time during the test because air is used to inflate the bowel.
