I'm at risk of colon cancer because my grandfather died of colon cancer in his 70s and my dad had a polyp (not cancerous) in his 50s. I'm a 45 year old female trying to decide between a colonoscopy and a CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy). My biggest concern is pain from the procedure since some people don't seem to respond to sedatives. I know that the prep is the same. Can anyone speak to the pain of the virtual procedure? How far does this tube go in for the virtual procedure (to date that hole has been exit only so something going in even a little bit seems terrifying)? Any advice would be appreciated.
