I have one. My husband was a police officer and on duty and he was told that he could bring me to my scopes as long as he wasn't on a call. Go figure, he had stacked calls all morning and was getting nervous that he wouldn't be able to go. I knew I couldnt walk there and was scared to take a taxi since I was still "going" but I didn't want to have to re-do the prep. He went from a call near my apartment to a call passed the hospital. He called me and said "be on the corner." He came w/ the lights on (bc he was on a call) and scooped me up and barely even stopped in front of the hospital door for me to run out as he continued on his call. I got some serously crazy looks. Then when it was all over I was still really doped up. I got in his face in the car and demanded he bring me to Wendys. He knows that it normally makes me sick so he said no and I just got really creepy and just growled at him to get me burgers. So he did. And I amazingly did not get sick. Then (i was a corrections officer at the time) my supervisor tried to call me in. I graphically told him why I couldn't go in and hubby had to grab the phone from me and apologize. I was laughing. I didn't get called in for a long time after that.

I know one time I was really out of it for days afterward and when I asked my doctor why he used so many meds to sedate me he told me I was really cussing him out for hurting me so they kept giving me more and more.

Another time I was given sedation that causes amnesia and I was the "phone tree mom" in my daughters class. I guess I had a call to activate the phone tree when I got home from my colonoscopy, so I did. Well the next day I didn't remember doing it, so I called them all again, lol. They probably thought I didn't remember calling because I was drunk or something, lol.

I remember waking up in the middle of it feeling really full and trying to tell him that I felt like I was going to explode and then felt the sensation of deflating. Then I saw the pinchers come out an take a sample of my intestines as I was facing where the litte TV was for the camera. And that's it. No other memory at all. Kinda surreal/dreamlike.

I am laying there in recovery, and sorta deflating myself.

I notice that everyone else is doing it too, and I try to get a little choir group thing going on to pass the time...

Then I hear from across the room, Mrs. B had an accident.

My first colonoscopy was memorable. I was so curious what everything would be like, look like... you name it. I had never been past the waiting room of a hospital so - everything was new to me. Add some really good drugs to this mix and you have a very high and curious Michelle. I asked so many questions, that my doctor told me to stop talking because I was moving my colon. Truly a unique experience.

THe scond time I had one, I woke up during the colonoscopy. It was awful! I remember waking up and attempting to reach for the scope. Someone yelled " SHe's awake!" THey held my arms down until I passed out again.

Well, this was funny at the time.  After my colonoscopy last year, the doctor told me I had many diverticula and that I should not eat peanuts or popcorn.  I then said, "You mean I can't go to baseball games anymore?"   He just looked at me strangely.  I guess he didn't get it.  He was from another country and didn't associate that with baseball games.

I mistakenly took a Percocet the day before my C. They couldn't put me under, even with 4 Verseds! I never thought about it, but the Percocet probably was still taking up some of the opioid receptors that the Versed needed in order to work. So I was writhing and screaming "OW! OW!" during the whole thing. I am only mildly aware of this now but do remember watching the C on the screen. It was fascinating. Well, finally, they rounded the bend and were able to see the end - my Terminal Ileum. The next step would have been total sedation, and GI didn't want to do that. So afterward I told him how awful it was and he said "For me as well as you!"

Never take a narcotic pain pill the day before a Colonoscopy. THey should tell you this!
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.

I can laugh at this now, but back then.....
Went for a psygmoidoscopy. Worse than colonoscopy. Had to be wide awake. No putting you to sleep for this major test.
During this very painful procedure, I actually pulled my hair weave out.

Ouch!!
