I'll be having a colonoscopy done this coming Tuesday. Does anyone that has had this procedure done before has any advice to make the process as easy as can be? I'm more nervous about the day before with all the prep work then the actual procedure. Thanks!
Hope you read this before your Colonoscopy.
Have No fear, I have had two. You will be sedated and will not know anything about it.
Afterwards you may feel a little bloated and pass wind quite often but you should have no other symptoms.
I went home after mine which was at 4 pm and had my dinner at 6.00 pm and then took an early night and felt fine next day.
Good luck and dont worry, if I had another one I wouldn't give it any thought,
No. There's nothing to worry about or prep for. The most uncomfortable part is doing the flush they give you before the procedure. Most everything is normal after the procedure. Relax and go with it. You'll do fine. Let us know how it went afterward.

YES you will use the Bathroom a number of times but I didn't find that a problem. No need for babywipes just do your normal routine.
I even went out for short trips between episodes and I'm the wrong side of sixty. So honestly its no big deal.
I wish they sedated you here in the uk, I have had two one five years ago and the latest 3 months past, and I would never again have it done with out sedation, some are ok, the doc said it depends on each individual how your intestines are, don't get me wrong it dose not take long to do maybe 10 mins, and afterwards apart from letting out the gas they pump into you , you are fine and able to leave the hospital,
