nice to see you post again
i just recently had my first colonoscopy and it was dreadful
they didn't listen to me when i said i have chronic pain and am on meds so that the usual dose of meds to sedate would need to be higher
so i was in agony thru the whole test
he wouldn't even top me up mid way thru the test when he saw i was in horrible abd. pain and crying my eyes out
then of course i have my severe headache on top of everything and had ice on my head
so this week when i went for my gastroscopy they listened to me and i got good sedation that lasted into the evening!!
Good luck to you for your test. Let us know how everything went.
