I have cirrhosis of the liver and ascities does this increase the risks involved in having a colonoscopy

Hi @red1mot

Welcome to the forum. I’m sorry that I don’t know the answer to this but you’ve already done the right thing by asking your question in Ask The Nurse.

It’s also worth contacting the centre where you’re having your colonoscopy to let them know your health situation and your concerns. They’ll pick all this up in your health check before the procedure but you can call, it’ll help put your mind at rest.

Big hugs
