i had one the first time i went to a GI on the gold coast.
i didnt even know it was coming. we sat in his office and discussed some things and then he just said, "lets take a look".
we went into the exam room and he just got a big glop of lube and put it on this scope thing and some on my starfish and then bam, there he went.
didnt hurt at all, and the air he pumped in felt weird, but that was it.
it was over before i knew it.
maybe he just did a sigmoidoscopy and not a flex one. is there a difference?
not sure, but thats my experience.
