have a nightmare about going for a scope!  I had the strangest night all my dreams were "out" there.  This one though took the cake -- I was going to a strange hospital for a scope but I never prepped for it and no one would listen to me!  I was thinking oh my the doctor is going to be upset. Oh the CDer's subconcious mind is a scary thing!! lol lol  I'm not even scheduled for one at this point so it wasn't anxiety, must've been the nonstop activity since Friday.....

Haha I think Crohn's etc definitely enters the subconcious! I once had a dream Hannibal Lecter was about to eat me until I reeled off my list of medications to him and he turned his nose up and walked away...........I guess the amount of times I've had to list my meds has really stuck with me! lol!

Lol, So funny! I still have nightmares about colonoscopies too and I have had an ileostomy and proctocolectomy done since March and finalized in July last year so they will have no hope getting a scope up my sealed backside lol. So glad I will never had to endure another scope in my life :-)

Ya last colonoscopy and upper GI, they had to load me up like an elephant 'cause I kept trying to get off the table and get "away". Consequently, all that day, I slept I had funky dreams of just...weird things. Lots and LOTS of weird things. I think it all ties together actually. You get the dreams 'cause its "midnight sleep" where you are on some level conscious so after the fact, at some point we get funny dreams after the fact.

Oh my God! that what exactly happened with me in my last two scopys. The first one I was "wake enough" to see my colonoscopy on the monitor screen, and I'm not even joking about it! I even was so concern I asked my GI :"how's it look? is it fine?". And in my 2nd colonscopy, I told my doctor to be careful this time and to load me properly, but then it happened again, only this time it was much lesser then the last time. I only felt the scope or whatever its called shoved into my mouth which I think I tried to resist it and almost tried to remove/touch it by my hand but I felt someone's holding me and then I heard my doc saying"no, no. Don't teach it, just try to relax". I only could feel things around and hear few words, but I couldn't even open my eyes like the time before it.
