A doctor is suspecting my daughter has polyps and she is about to undergo a colonoscopy. We are both interested if she will be awake or put to sleep during the procedure and if she would experience any discomfort shortly after the procedure. Thank you

Most of the children and teenagers are put to sleep. They wake up soon after the colonoscopy had ended. They don’t feel any pain during the procedure. The anesthesiologists make sure patients don’t wake up during the procedure as they monitor them and give more medicine if needed. There could be some cramping after the procedure but nothing serious. They are able to go home about two hours after

Hi there,
As much as I know polyp is usually benign growth in the colon. How large are the polyps in your daughter? You have to know that the type of cell that forms the polyp varies. This is important in determining if it is potential for developing into a cancer. But this is up to doctor to determine with the examination. You have to also know that colonoscopy is a normal procedure for these things and the side effects that she will have after the procedure are minor considering the benefit that she will have from removing the polyps. Does she have stomach problems or constipations during these past several weeks?

Best wishes,
Marco
