Residual effects from colonoscopy?

Posted by cheerful1 (My Page) on

I had a colonoscopy last Friday. I did the prep and also took Magnesium Citrate. I had almost a "stoned" feeling after I woke up from the anesthesia, and still feel light headed. I lost two pounds which was probably all fluid.

I'm wondering if it's dehydration that's causing the lightheadedness, or residual effects from the anesthesia?

Have any of you experienced this?

The good news was, the doctor did not find anything. The bad news was, the prep did not totally clean me out. I have to have another colonoscopy next year.
