I'm 20 years old and Had my sigmoidoscopy today and just wanted to say it was ok! I am someone who sufferers really bad with anxiety and panic attacks to the point all week I've been crying as I didn't want to have this procedure! It wasn't half as bad as I was expecting! It was uncomftable and sometimes painful but nothing unbearable what worried me was all the negative comments I seen on here of people's bad experiences, but anyone that has this procedure done ask for sedation as this helped me out a lot I was in for 5 minutes and it was done was in recovery for 20 mins then back home within an hour and a half! I think the worst part was before the procedure having the enema and having to hold yourself for 5 mins lol! Everyone has a different experience but my advice is don't listen to all the negative ones as its different for everyone that's what worried me a lot and nearly made me cancel but so glad I didn't as it gave me so much reasurence having it done had a nurse by my side the whole way through talking to me time went so quick so guys don't put it off if you've been advised to have one I would go for it!!
