    -and the doctor even pulled a cyst off-I didn't know any better-it was my first time.I watched the monitor.

    -I also didn't get___?_____numbed by the dentist at age about 8,9,10 and it touched the nerves.He NEVER numbed me,he must have been a sadist b/c the sign said,"painless dentistry".

    Also,in Jr.High,my thumb nail got a piece of wood under it from the wooden handrail-man o man did it hurt-but the doctor didn't even numb it-he took a scissors to it and cut my nail off to get the wood out,all I got was a nurse holding my hand,and that helped!
    I could be strong but it may all come down to "trust".

    I was awake for the last 10 mins. It was pretty cool watching the monitor. The Dr. left me with a huge glob of KY in my crack.:mad:

    Usually everyone is awake for their scope as you have to turn some. They give you Vercid which causes amnesia as a side effect in almost all pts. so you just don't remember it. My last one the Dr told me that they had to stop 1/2 way through because they were laughing so hard at something I said. They wouldn't tell me what it was either but it must have been funny as hell.

    I'm hoping in the next 10 years they perfect their non-invasive colonoscopies before I'm due.

    I've had catheter surgery in my heart from wires run up from both sides of my groin without any anesthesia at all -- but colonoscopies sound worse.

    They knocked me out cold thankfully. That Vercid is good stuff though. One minute you are talking to the anesthesiologist, the next minute you are waking up in a room and ready to go get something to eat. PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGE -- get a colonoscopy if you are 50 years old or 40 with a family history. It's a breeze and the prep will make you laugh and cry.

    I was awake too. Next day I felt like Elton John after a weekend in San Francisco.

    Versed is nice, but add in Propofol to totally knock you out. However, as Michael Jackson found out, you need an Anesthesiologist to be there if you get Propofol.

    Eerie. I just arrived home after my first-ever colonoscopy minutes ago. I don't remember a thing, so I was out. I feel fine. The day of prep wasn't exactly fun but it's a pretty painless procedure.

    That seems kind of gay to me, but what do I know.

    this.

    it's a snap. the worst part is the prep, the day before the surgery. you'll shit/squirt so much, your asshole will feel raw, but the procedure itself? I don't remember a damned thing. :jj:

    Colon cancer? Not so gay. If you catch it late the best outcome is shitting in a bag for the rest of your life. Otherwise you're dead.

    My wife had one done and after it was over I went into the recovery room with about a dozen people farting their brains out.

    I'm not sure how the nurses get used to that.

    They were laughing hysterically because you probably said something about Bob Levy being the greatest stand-up comedian of all time. :c

    The first time I had conscious sedation and was awake the whole time. The second time they gave me propofol and I was out like a light the entire time.
