Brief Answer: OK to proceed Detailed Answer: Dear patient, Thanks for the query. The presence of a hernia should not preclude you from undergoing the colonoscopy, which is quite important as I gather that you are a XXXXXXX citizen having constipation for 6 months or so. However, do mention it to the gastroenterologist so that he can keep you in the most comfortable position due to the hernia. Hope that helps, wish you the best, Dr Brenes-Salazar MD Mayo Clinic MN Cardiology
