Hi,
Thanks for query,
It may be due to anesthesia given,
It will remain for some time and gradually it will go away.
Ok and bye.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi..., Colonoscopy is not related ot eerrectile dysfunction, or colonoscopy will not
cause temprovary impotence.., may be it is due to pain in your perinium, you cant
get erect, look for a week.., if it is same then you can consult surgeon..
Hope I have answered your question..

Takecare...
