I had a sigmoidoscopy not too long ago and it wasn't bad at all... I was cracking jokes and talking with the nurse and doctor and it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. He made it all the way up to my transverse colon and it wasn't until he got there that I started to feel discomfort. It was a bit gassy, as he inflated my colon with some air, but you just relax and pass it out afterwards... My doctor even said while he was doing my procedure that I could fart if I felt like I needed too, but I was NOT going to do that while he was down there working! LOL...
I did have some gas pains on the way home, but other than that.. it was a breeze :) OH, and all I had to do for prep was 2 fleet enemas.. not bad either... Good luck and let us know how it goes for you!
