I had my first colonoscopy today and I want to tell everyone new to it that it isn't as bad as you may have heard. Like Angie E. my experience was similar. I had the IV put in my hand and once the drugs took effect I was out like a baby and I don't even remember the procedure. I left after 20 minutes in the recovery room with very minimal pain or discomfort. I also left with great relief in finding out that the small amount of blood in my stool a week ago was caused by hemorrhoids and not polyps or cancer. It is worth doing this procedure I can say from experience and I would like to reassure anyone that has been advised to do it... It is worth doing and it isn't so bad ! And it just might save your life.
Good Luck :) Janet C.
