Proctoscopy, also known as rigid sigmoidoscopy, is used to view the inside of the rectum and anus. In this procedure a straight, hollow metal or plastic tube sometimes with a tiny light is used to examine the rectum. An instrument capable of taking tissue samples for biopsy can be inserted through the hollow tube.

2 days before the test patient has to take 2 Dulcolax & 2 Festal-N tablets after dinner. On the previous day, 5 hours after lunch 1ltr solution of PEGLEG powder in water should be taken by patient within half an hour. He/she will pass stool for many times which is necessary for the clear view of the colon. Plenty of water or ORS should be taken to maintain the electrolyte balance on the previous day. Patient should take early liquid dinner on the previous day and keep fasting until the test is done. If the patient faces any problem due to PEGLEG powder consumption he/she immediately should contact a physician.
