Re: Constipation after colonoscopy
Presumably you were given a total bowel clensing prior to the colonoscopy? If so, your gut will be totaly empty, so you cant be constipated as such, you might be bloated with gas though. Note that because your gut has been totaly emptied, you might not visit the bathroom for a day or two. if this becomes an issue, a dose of Ex Lax or Milk of Magnesia would be in order
