Discussions that mention demerol

Cancer: Colon board

Hey everyone,

I just had my colonoscopy today. Procedure was absolutely painless. I was given combination of versed and demerol. Preparation was not a problem at all. I don't know what people complain about. For preparation I used pico salax [1]. It actually tastes excellent.

In the past couple of months I was one of those people lurking around forums hoping to find an answer if I have some serious GI problems. I see that I am not alone and that there are many others with similar concerns. It turns out that my bleeding was from hemorrhoids and anusitis - inflammation of the anal canal. But don't simply assume that this is your case as well. Get it checked. GI doc removed hemorrhoids using band ligation. Yes it hurts a bit but only for a little while.

Get your colonoscopy done. It is absolutely painless. Don't delay.

I wish the best to the people fighting this terrible disease.

All the best.
