Orginally I had the same experience with scopes that Ka had. My stomach scope I was out and felt nothing but my colonscopy was a nightmare and I screamed the whole time for him to stop but he just kept saying "a little longer". Same doctor. I changed Doctors and have had two more of each and never felt a thing except once for the stomach one I could feel something moving but apparantly there aren't a lot of nerve endings being affected with the stomach one and some people get no sedation. I also have friends that were awake during their whole colonscopy and watched it on the screen and had barely any pain which I found hard to believe after what I went thru. Same Doctor i had the first time. Because I have lung problems they have to be extra careful that my oxygen doesn't drop too low even though they always give Oxygen to all the patients where I go, not just lung patients. I don't know why there is such a variance but glad I don't have to go for a couple more years.
