diving after routine colonoscopy

Should one be able to do a dive in the 30meter range the following day after a routine colonoscopy provided all went according to plan?

They normally knock you out - IMHO, I would give it at least 24+ hours to clear the drugs out of your system. At least ask what drugs were administered to see if there are known issues and check with DAN. There are some BP medications which are known to increase the risk of deco illness.

diving after routine colonoscopy

It's usually Propofol used in that procedure if it helps. I'd find out for sure though.

Re: diving after routine colonoscopy

Half life of Propofol is usually 2-24 hrs, depending on how long you were under. For a routine colonoscopy I'd say the 2hrs are about right.
So if you want to go diving within 24 hrs you should be ok, unless you took other meds.

Dive safe,

Celia

Re: diving after routine colonoscopy

I don't think the anesthetic is an issue 24 hrs post administration (I am an anesthesiologist). But things to consider:

You had a bowel prep and are usually 2-4 liters behind fluids (i.e. a little dehydrated). I don't know how much IV fluids you have gotten during the procedure to offset the dehydration, but try to rehydrate 1-2 liters.

There is gas insufflation in your colon during the procedure. Unless you get that insufflated gas out, you may experiencing "gas pains". I mention this because
"pain" post-dive causes a knee-jerk reaction in some and they call it DCS.

Lastly, see how you feel before you dive! If you feel great, go for it.

Have a great one!!

Re: diving after routine colonoscopy

Gabe - If you're really committed to dive the next day, ask your doc to do a barium enema instead. No sedation for that. Fun, fun, fun......
