thank ya , it makes me feel better knowing its just like a sleeping pill and not stronge. i dont mind the prep its the putting to sleep i dont like, i have anxiety and its been high since i have to have this done. praying nothing bad . my sister just found out she had 2 poplys and my mom had them so guess i need to check to. thanks again
I would just add one comment to the above - in my case the sedation caused me to have difficulty in remembering just exactly what the specialist told me after the procedure. Don't worry - your memory returns 100% after an hour or so but at that critical moment perhaps 5-10 minutes after you regain fulll consciousness your powers of memory are a bit diminished. Either write down what you were told at the time - or have a family member/friend present at the time the specialist speaks to you and repeat the information later in case you have not remembered everything.
had it done today it was so easy . being put to sleep with that stuff was nothing. so glad its over but wont stress it when i do it again in 5 years. no ployps either GOD IS GOOD thank ya for every thing
No, the colonoscopy is NOT safe for all patients. Most are not "asleep" but quite awake and often strugglin ith pretty sever pain but the amnesia drug Versed blocks the memory fo a while; at least until you get home and realize how bdly you were treated. Versed does nothing for pain; after the test whe you can't remember simple things (PIN numbers ect, beware..this drug causes long-term memoy damage and you were give it just to make the test esier for your doctors benefit...mad about this? too bad, you signed a blanket conset

No you are not a sleep, and yes they are very safe. You have to go to the right doctors to have this done. I had it done at the Cleveland Clinic and I was awake and watched it on the screen, very interesting, it was easy and no pain, they tell you when there will be a little cramping and how to breath to make it go away and it did. My husband had it done in March of this year and it was all the same with him, NO PAIN. So if these people who say it is not safe and there is pain, I would say they went to the wrong doctors. There is nothing to having a colonoscopy, when done by the right doctors.
