hey there. Being a girl I thought scopes would be pretty embarassing or invasive, but once I started getting them, that was the last of anything on my mind, the nurses and doctors are so professional and you do get covered and its not like other patients are around so your not really exposed, just to the docs, but I've never been uncomfortable with that part of the scope. I think your so nervous about the scope you forget about being half naked, haha.
belleenstein is right about the position, they'll guide you, just lay on your side and all.
as for after effects, I find from reading every single person is different so you never know til you try...I've had horrible scopes and aftereffects in my personal ones...but I've watched other patients come out not even knowing they were done or anything happened cause it was such a breeze, its all about how your own body will take it. yes, I also agree with the previous that the prep is the worst part. Just do the best you can.
