Hi, I'm having a colonoscopy this week and I'm just doing some research beforehand. I will be having conscious sedation for the procedure. I have heard that although it is rare, colonoscopies can cause bowel perforations. Does this happen during the procedure and do you feel symptoms of this immediately? Or is it something you will start to feel hours or days later? How is it diagnosed? How is it treated? Does anyone have experience of this? Thank you
