Had it done in october...no big deal. The worst part of it is trying to drink all the liquid and spending 5-6 hours in the bathroom the night before. Sure cleans you out. Don't plan on going anywhere the night before...except to the bathroom. The procedure is nothing. I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done at the same time and it was painless. They put me to sleep...actually twilight and the next thing I new it was over.
