Welcome to XXXXXXX

There is no contra indication of nasal congestion for colonscopy however you still can use decongestants like xynosine nasal spray to relieve the symptoms but if you still have it till Monday, you can go for colonscopy. It is safe.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask
