How lomg does it take to have your first bowel movement after a colonoscopy

I just recently had a colonoscopy and haven’t had a bowel movement in the week since I’ve had it. Is this normal and how long does it takes before you have one.

Everyone is different. If you have had constipation issues in the past, they may continue even after a colonoscopy. If you are having pain, you should contact your doctor.
