Just finished. No significant issues. I do have some diverticulosis pockets. Dr said it's not much to worry about though. Pretty common.

The actual procedure was beyond trivial. I had more discomfort inserting the i.v. to administer the drugs

Once the drugs are in they can do anything they want to you. You dont care.

Good job.

Maybe it's the drugs talking, but I can't say I feel high at all. I think I coulda done the whole thing without drugs.

With a Colonoscopy it isn’t the procedure it’s the preparation. I still can’t look at Gatorade. Fortunately I also had a clean report after my last colonoscopy (because of polyps I had been on the 3 year cycle) now at my age the colonoscopy test is history. I guess they figure some other malady will do me in before colon issues.

Yeah, that’s definitely the drugs talking. There’s some memories you just don’t need.

You would never want to do that. Ever. lol.

and yes the drugs they "twilight" you with are very short acting they pretty much wear off by the time procedure is over .

The prep has gotten much easier over the past 2 decades.

Well, in addition to “don’t drive” they tell you not to make any major decisions or sign any contracts for the rest of the day because your judgement may be affected by the drugs. A little slack may be in order here.

Based on the title: Was this your first successful colonoscopy? What happened the first time? Must have been a pain in the …..

I'll give the first $20 to a BY collection for you to do it next time w/o the Michael Jackson drugs.

Btw, watch those diverticulosis pockets. I've gone to -itis twice. It's not fun. If you feel a pain in lower abdomen, don't let it go for too long.

I was only kidding, but glad it went well. These things are extremely important and early detection can save lives.

Try dealing with a pilonidal cyst.
