Re: Colonoscopy prep concern - need to hear from people who've done this

You will be fine, I am the biggest chicken in the world and I got through it with no problems whatsoever and I even had an Endoscopy done at the same time. When I had my colonoscopy, I had to fast for a few days and drink something called Go-Lytely and I have to say, I was so emptied out there was no way I could have had any kind of movement for 2 days afterward, trust me! Like you, I was terrified and as soon as I told the nurses, they led me to a backroom where I could be wrapped in warm towels and watch a movie and was offered a sedative. Then I met with the doctor and the other nurses, felt amazingly relaxed and the next thing I knew, it was all over and I had gingerale and soda crackers in my hands. Good luck!
