How long should I be watching for symptoms of bowel peforation after a colonoscopy?

Posted by LC

Is there a watch window? I travel later this week and had my procedure two days ago. I'd like to get this off of my mind.

If polyps were removed, you may be asked to alter your activities for seven days after the colonoscopy. For example, don't take blood thinners, limit travel, don't lift more than five pounds, and don't go running. Basically, baby yourself or let yourself be babied.
