Do you like home movies? Then you can’t get much better than a colonoscopy Why would you want to be asleep? Of course the whine-about-everything-the-Ford-government-does crowd will continue to shriek about the proposed delisting of sedation.
The reality is that for a standard colonoscopy with no serious pre-existing conditions, you will experience some mild cramping from gas buildup as the endoscope passes through the colon. That’s it.
The real reason people are afraid is because they don’t want to be awake when put into a compromising and humbling position.
No worries! The physician and ASSistants have seen it all before.
