I have 2 questions. When I go for my colonoscopy: do they draw my blood first? 2nd question: how big is the needle they stick you with to put the sleepy time (relax medicine) in me? Get back to me when u can. Michelle is my name.

Hello, Michelle. Thank you for posting.

Blood may be taken. You can call your doctor and ask if this will be done to know for sure. I don't know how big the needles are that they use. My guess is they are average size.
