I kept having pain in my right side and suddenly i got a sever left pain a year ago.  My entire colon is in pain now.  everything changed after the galbladder surgery.  i am not the same person anymore. Doctor wants me to do colonoscopy but i am afraied to do it.  I dont like the sedation medication it scares me. Especialy when he told me they gonna use Proponol the one that killed MJ.  I dont know what to do. sad

      Hi 2lynn

      You were Lucky 2Lynn Beacuse my doc doesn't want to do it. I believe he never done it without sedation. I keep asking him but he says no. And he knows my fear and anxiety about the sedation. I can't find any other doc that does it without sedation. sad

      One doctor did it with Versed which is a drug that basically gives  you amnesia. It works quite well for most people and doesn't last very long. In fact, in my area they mostly all use that.

      Hello Cathy. I want to assure you to not be scared of the colonoscopy at all!!! Honestly the worst part of that is running to the bathroom from the laxative lol. The taste of the prep is yuky, but you are doing yourself a world of good by doing the procedure. You won't have any discomfort and I thought the same thing about M. J. Poor Micheal didn't have the appropriate monitoring or he would've never been given that drug in a home setting. They usually give me Demerol and Verced to relax me before the procedure, then Propofol right before they begin. It only takes 15 to 20 min., then you'll be back to your room likely having a snack and prepared to go home. No worries......I assure you!!!!

    Not sure what is going on with you stacy.

    I had my gallbladder removed at end of Apri lthis year and still not completely settled down.

    Had Gastroscopy on Friday. Result of that is that I have a hiatus hernia.

    Apparently a lot of people have it and it is nothing to worry about.

    Have to be careful what I eat.

    Going ot for a Christmas Meal with somefriends tonight.

    Hoping I will be OK.

    Take care and keep in touch

    I'm waiting on an operation date to go into Hospital to remove a post operative mass at my gallbladder site.  I had a nasty operation in 2013 in which I nearly died.  They think the mass is possibly part of the gallbladder that was left behind in my tricky operation.  But they are not sure.  I've been ill all year getting worse and worse.  It is awful.  And it has taken months to get to this stage.  My advise to anyone who has issues following surgery is to go back and keep going back until you get answers.  Good luck to you all

    Hi you probably been having bile reflux perhaps due to your valve between your stomach and bile duct not closing properly? So Have you got inflammation in your stomach or ulcers because of the bile and acids?

    it may not have nothing to do with the fact you not have a gb anymore.

    what did they say?
