The worst part, period, end of subject, no question about it, is shortly after you drink the wonderful stuff; be prepared for numerous and frequent pit stops!

After you get through that piece of the enjoyment, it is all downhill. The procedure itself is a piece of cake.

I had my second one done this past summer. They told me that the first one at 50 was good for 10 years, but they are now saying it is only good for 5 years. Depends on the doctor I guess. No problems 10 years ago, 6 polyps this last one. All benign so that is good. Now I have to go back in 2 years this time.

There's just no dignity in growing older. My GP told me that when I see him next he will need to do a prostate exam. I have been avoiding that exam for years now and am not looking forward to it. I wonder which is worse, being the examinee or the examiner?

Good question, but if your doctor ever says you need the Cystoscopy Procedure -- RUNNNNNNNNNN.

I looked that up on Wikipedia. Wow! They showed a pic of the probe used to do the Cystoscopy procedure. The description of the procedure makes the colonoscopy look like a walk in the park!

It is the worst procedure I have ever done and hope I never have another one.

Colonoscopy is a piece of cake, it is just the night before getting ready for it that is a pain.

I hate to say it, I am 48 and just experienced it. Had a pain in my lower right, the Doctor thought it was my apendix, or an infection close to the apendix. Doctor sends for a Cat Scan, turns out my apendix is fine, but nothing around it is. Now comes the news, a Colonoscopy so they can determine why I have an infection in my large intestine, and an Endoscopy to look at my small intestine. The good news, no polups, no tears, no bags. They gave me antibiotics, but they still don't know what caused it, and the meds took almost a week to take care of it. The Doctor did say I have the intestines of a 20 yr old, then told me this didn't excuse from the one they will do when I turn 50.

Thanks! I feel a lot less stressed about this thing. I will make certain that I camp out just down the hall of my toilet upon consuming my luscious concoction the day before! I will also make sure that the tp supply is not empty! I will have reading material near the commode. I will save the really entertaining shows on DVR for when I have to go through this torturous period of time (in between the bathroom visits). I will make sure to fill the prescriptions ahead of time and dilligently take the valium when suggested!

Once I get past that stinkin' i.v. needle, I will relax and allow myself to become "loopy". Loopy is good right...?

It's finished! No polyps and my procedure took only 16 minutes total. Although "loopy", I was awake and able to watch the procedure on the tv monitor. Doc even gave me some pics of my colon (non-gross pics).

Best advice I got:
-REFRIDGERATE the stuff ya hafta drink a few hours before.... it's easier to drink and more palatable (I had no problem drinking it thank God!). I picked the orange flavoring packet.
-Use Vaseline to keep your self coated down there after each visit to the commode.
-After that wonderful visit to the commode, DAB, *don't* wipe, it'll just make ya feel a burn eventually.
-If you want to go to bed before 9pm, start drinking the stuff by 4-5pm.
-Hang in there, the morning drink and potty visits are less annoying than the night before.
