This booklet was developed by talking to people who had a colonoscopy. Researchers asked these people to explain what was confusing or difficult about. getting ready for the test The researchers then used this feedback to create this. booklet and tested the booklet in a study to see if it could help people get ready. for a colonoscopy The study found that people who read the booklet were more. likely to have a clean prep compared to those who did not get the booklet. About Getting Ready, The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do is to empty out your colon by. following the diet described in this booklet and taking the bowel prep. medicine prescribed by your doctor We want to help you get ready If you. come in with your colon properly emptied out then we can make this One and. Done One and Done means just that let s do this once let s do it right. and let s be done with it Then we won t run the risk and inconvenience of. asking you to come back and repeat the test, Spiegel BM Talley J Alvarez E Bolus R Kurzbard N Ho A Kaneshiro M Cohen H Impact of a novel. patient educational booklet on colonoscopy preparation quality results of a randomized controlled. trial American Journal of Gastroenterology 2011 in press. About Your Insides, Your digestive system made up of your mouth food tube stomach bowels. and other organs helps you break down and absorb food The last part of your. bowels the large intestine or the colon is a hollow tube that helps you absorb. water and pass stool and other wastes from your body. Your colon like other parts of your body can get cancer There is no single cause. for colon cancer but nearly all colon cancers begin as non cancerous polyps. A polyp is a small growth on the surface of your colon that can turn into cancer. Removing polyps may prevent you from getting colon cancer If polyps have. already become cancerous catching them early increases your chance of. surviving or being cured of colon cancer,About Colon Cancer.
One out of every 16 Americans will get colon cancer. Most people survive colon cancer if it is caught early and. only 5 of people survive colon cancer if it is caught late. You may be at higher risk,for colon cancer if,You are older than 45 50. You have had polyps before,Someone in your family has had polyps. You have a family history of colon cancer,You may also be more likely to get. colon polyps if you,Eat a lot of fatty foods,Drink alcohol. Do not exercise,Weigh too much, Please talk to your doctor about how you can reduce your risk for colon cancer.
How Does a Colonoscopy Work, The purpose of a colonoscopy is to look inside your colon for polyps cancers. ulcers and other conditions It is important to get a colonoscopy to test for colon. cancer once you are 45 50 years of age or older since the disease usually has. no symptoms, Just before the procedure starts you will receive some medicine to make. you sleepy This medicine a sedative will help you avoid discomfort from the. procedure Most people do not remember having the procedure. The doctor will begin the colonoscopy by examining your rectum to make sure. you do not have stool left in your bowels The doctor will then inflate your colon. with a soft stream of air This will help the doctor get a clear look in your colon. The doctor will then pass an endoscope through your anus and in your colon. How Does a Colonoscopy Work, The endoscope is a thin flexible tube that has a light and a camera at the tip. Images from the camera go to a TV monitor in the procedure room allowing the. doctor to see the inside of your colon on screen The doctor will then look for. polyps cancer or other abnormalities throughout your colon Your doctor will. also remove any polyps that are found A colonoscopy usually takes around. 20 30 minutes to complete, Here is a picture of how it works The scope bends as it passes through. the colon The headlight provides light so the doctor can see. The doctor will look at your,colon on a TV screen, After the procedure you will need to recover for about 30 60 minutes to let the.
sedative wear off You may feel some gas during your recovery caused by the air. used to inflate your colon Most facilities will require someone to help you get. home afterwards,Why is it Important to Get Cleaned Inside. Your doctor must be able to see in order to do the test right If it is dirty on. the inside your doctor may not be able to see important things like polyps or. cancer and may even have to do the test again That would mean you would. have to start over and nobody wants that So help us help you make this. one and done,Imagine This, Think of it this way a clean colon is like driving on a country road on a sunny day. A dirty colon is like driving in a snowstorm,When your colon is clean. doing the colonoscopy is,like driving on a country. road on a sunny day It is,easy to see and to drive.
