    Can anyone here tell me what type of questions Doctors/Nurses/Other Medical Staff will ask just moments before a colonoscopy.

    I'm guessing they will ask if patient has prepped.

    Anything else they will ask. Hope to have this information handy beforehand (to reduce patient stress and make the procedure easier for the colonoscopy team)

    About past / recent medication.
    Allergy history .
    If any of the medications were asked to stop prior to the procedure.
    Complete medical history( diabetes, hypertension, previous history of shingles, nervous system related) including previous surgeries.
    If you have difficulty in remembering the drug names make a note of their composition and keep it handy.
    Information regarding when the solid food intake was stopped.
    Regarding gut cleanse(good cleanse gives a clear view of the gut mucosa)
    Carry some tissues with you.
    Make sure if willing to get it under anaesthesia.
