: I'm a 14 year old female. Lately I've been having problems with constipation. My dr says I need a colonscopy so I have one scheduled this week. I am SO nervous I don't even know anybody that has had this test I can talk to but I have read horror stories about it. Can some experienced person please tell me?

I just had my colonoscopy last week and it was a piece of cake. They will knock you out before they even touch you and you'll wake up and will feel fine! I don't remember a thing about it. They'll put an IV in your arm (just a little stick, nothing major) It will be over in about 15 minutes. As soon as you wake up, you go home and sleep for the rest of the day.

The day before when you drink the laxative, you might want to put a little vaseline on your anus. The most uncomfortable part of the whole thing is diarrhea. There wasn't any cramping at all. Your hiney will sting. Be sure and drink lots of water. If I had to do one again, I would do it in a heartbeat! Good luck and let us know how it goes!
Angie E
