When do I need to have another procedure?

Your doctor will let you know when another colonoscopy should be planned, based on your findings, your family history, and other factors which may be important in your case.  The quality of bowel cleansing and the size, shape, number and microscopic characteristics of any polyps found factor into our recommendations, which in most cases follow these guidelines. Your details will be entered into our recall register and both you and your referring doctor will be notified at the time that a repeat procedure is required.
