Ask a Healthcare Provider Your Colon Health Question Now

Q

What type of colonoscopy procedure would you recommend for someone who has vasovagal syncope?

My vasovagal syncope is severe in that I pass out and become physically ill. I am in a weakened state for a day afterwards. Pain is a trigger. Would virtual colonoscopy, optical colonoscopy or traditional colonoscopy be best for me?

Typically under sedation the Vasovagal response will not interfere with the procedure. Please make the physician aware of this condition at time of scheduling procedure.
