I may be a weirdo...but I love having colonoscopys. The prep sucks, but its really not that big of a deal. But I feel so good when my body is like completely free of wastes.
Ditto with Kasper on the drugs, Im loopy all day afterwards lol.
Basically you drink this nasty stuff, or maybe your doctor is giving you the pills, but your going to crap your brains out until its like just water coming out, then when you go in they give you an IV, pump you full of drugs to make you all sleepy, then you wake up like nothing ever happened. Thats how mine go at least.

You will notice after all is said and done that the prep is worse then the actual procedure. You will be burning a path in the rug on the way to the bathroom. The procedure itself is relatively quick and you will either knocked out or put you in twilight. I didn't feel any discomfort considering the procedure taking place. I've had this procedure done like 3 or 4 times so I'm somewhat familiar with the steps.
I think the funniest thing I've seen or rather heard is when I woke up in the recovery room. There were about a half dozen other people that had similar procedures done. I don't think I've heard that much gas being passed in a long time. It was pretty funny.
You'll do fine....no worries.
