barium enema w/ sedation?

hi, wondering if anyone has had one done w/ sedation? I understand in the UK they give something but I am in the process of trying to negotiate w/ my dr. about trying to get something for the procedure. My hubby had one in 03 and I could hear him hollaring in pain in the hallway. I've already tried the colonocopy route but due to my nausea problems and meds I'm on I couldn't get empty. also, could you tell me the prep for the enema? thanks, Cathy

The prep for a barium enema is very similar to the prep for the colonoscopy. I had a barium enema and it wasn't painful at all. It was uncomfortable and felt some pressure but that's it. Getting rid of the barium out of your system after the procedure and the prep for it were far worse than the procedure itself. you must expell all the barium within so many hours after the procedure or it will cause to you have severe constipation problem. Because I have severe allergies to latex,I took 50 mg of Benadryl an hour before the procedure so I was pretty drowsy during the procedure itself.
