Here at Beaumont GI Services we want your appointment - whether a consultation or procedure - to run as smoothly as possible. Check out these frequently asked questions for help and feel free to contact us with anything else you may have questions about.

Can I take my morning medications prior to procedure?

Yes, we ask that you take all routine medications, especially blood pressure, thyroid, and cardiac medications. The only exceptions to this would be supplements and blood thinners which are addressed in a case by case manner.

How long will the procedure take?

The procedure will take anywhere from 15-30 minutes (depending on the type of procedure). However, your total wait time from arrival until discharge is usually 2 1/2 to 3 hours. This is for the anesthetic to begin working and to ultimately wear off enough for you to safely leave.

Will I be sedated for the procedure?

Yes, you will be sedated. Dr. Fedi uses a combination of versed (midazolam, which can be taken orally) and fentanyl (administered intravenously).

Can I use a different bowel prep other than golytely?

Golytely is the gold standard for bowel prep. It is the safest prep for kidneys and heart! At the time of your procedure, we give you plenty of tips to help with the prep golytely.

Do you believe in alternative medication?

Our goal is to identify the cause of the problem. If there is a way to improve your symptoms without medication, Dr. Fedi will discuss all these options with you.

When should I take my proton pump inhibitor? (omeprazole, protonix, etc.) and H2 blocker (ranitidine, zantac)?

You should take your PPI on an empty stomach, best in the morning 1/2 an hour prior to eating or drinking and the H2 Blocker can be taken when you have breakthrough symptoms.
