I had a colonoscopy appointment today at the hospital. They admitted me explained everything about the procedure again and inserted a canula in my arm. They showed me where to change my clothes to hospital gown and made me sit at the treatment area. When they called me in, the nurse checked my details and asked me to turn on my left side then she inserted her lubricated finger then the camera into my anus pushing it up toward colon. When itreached the beginning of colon i felt extreme pain I got iv painkillers and sedation at this point as I was in excruciating pain. She proceded pushing the colonoscope more up and I couldn't handle the pain any longer. I asked if they could give me any other painkillers she said no they can't. So I had to withdraw from the procedure cos the pain got unbearable. It would have made a world of a difference if they put me to sleep but they refused. The nurse told me that itsnotuncommonthat some people just can't bear it! And that they might send me for a colon CT. I'm not sure whether that's gonna hurt or not but if that will be as painful as today's procedure than I better don't go. I kind of feel bad for this unsuccessful procedure. I can only just hope that everything is ok inside me..
