Dear Michelle, really sad to hear that you are dependent to attend a public hospital for a colonoscopy. I do not know which hospital you were referred to for a colonoscopy. It could be that it is one of the ‘smaller’ hospitals. Please request your doctor to refer you to one of the academic hospitals where facilities for colonoscopy should be available. (MCH).
