I'm about to have my 3rd sigmoidoscopy, the 2 so far I've had during hospital stays so opted for sedation. I have recently had a colonoscopy as an outpatient but opted for sedation as it was 45-60 mins.
I'm have a moderate pain threshold and to be honest would rather have less fuss of having to be picked up and guarded for 24 hours but not sure how bad the pain is? Has anyone had sigmoidoscopy with no sedation and how was it?
Could someone advise what the procedure before sigmoidoscopy is as an outpatient. Do you have to prep the day before like you do with colonoscopy?
I keep having inconclusive cameras and histologist is also confused as my UC symptoms started 2 years ago when I was stuck down with camplyabactor (food poisoning from chicken) and since then been having flair ups, on 4 mezalazine pentasa a day and currently back on steroids again.
Hopefully this test will have answers after been flaring this time for 7 weeks now!!
Any advise is great fully recieved.
Thanks Carrie x
