Re: Narrow bowel movements

Hi,
I had a colonoscopy on Friday, and it was not at all painful. I am much younger than you are, but I don't think that age matters much in this respect. The feeling of having the scope inserted in the anus may be uncomfortable, and if you do have a narrower anus than most, this may be especially so, but the feelign lasts only very briefly. If I were you, I'd request a sedative. I got one, and its effect, besides sedation, is tha tyou won't remember much if anything from the procedure afterwards, so even if it hurts you won't remember.
