I wouldnt be able to sleep if I was going in for a colonscopy, I had one done 2 years ago and everyone told me it was a very painless procedure, well it was extremely painful cause they decided to not sedate me, I screamed the whole time begging the doctor to stop but he woudnt. Since then I have swear to myself that I will never ever have another one again as long as I live, I dont care how much they say I would need one, it isnt happening. It took me 3 months for my body to heal after they did it. Even the meds for the prep before made me vomit for a week straight, and since the GI doctor that did it was 2 and half hours away, we where an hour late cause my aunt had to keep stopping every 5 minutes for me to vomit, I remember once we got to the hospital I ran into the bathroom vomiting and I colapsed on the dirty bathroom floor. Never ever again!!
