I too have just had a colonoscopy today. The whole procedure is absolutely awful, from the bowel prep to the actual procedure. "You will feel a little discomfort!!!" Anything but, it was the worst excruciating pain I have ever experienced. The sedation and analgesia was given whilst on the table and the procedure started immediately. I had in formed them I have a high resistence to analgesia and sedation as previous op I was given more sedation as I counted beyond 20 on the first dose before I started to feel sleepy. Yet despite informing them of this I got the standard dose despite my size and resistence. They might as well given me nothing. I heard and felt everything, as it got to the transverse colon they had to stop. My colon had gone into spasm. I was offered a barium enema I will consider. Fortunately what he could see was perfectly normal and he feels my symptoms are IBS rather anything more sinister. If symptoms deteriorate I am going to insist on being treated as a human being and not an animal. People be warned for some it is not a breeze and a little uncomfortable it is absolute torture. I was ready to leave immediately following the procedure so much for the effects of the sedation and analgesia!!!!
