    I had a sigmoid done a good few years ago so my memory is slightly hazy.  I dont remember it being painful more like bloody uncomfortable,that was without sedation.  Just out of curiosity why are you havind a sigmoid done so soon after a colonoscopy?  I'm due a colonoscopy in a few days time and am going to have sedation, pain relief and gas and air
