Hi everybody this morning I had my second colonoscopy, the first being three years ago. I do not remember there being as much pain the first time around as there was this morning, having said that I didn't have the sedative which according to the nurse who took my details on arrival does not contain any painkiller and therefore does nothing to soften the pain which I might add was excruciating. The doctor kept saying that it was wind so I thought in my stupidity stop what you are doing and let me get rid of it. He just carried on till I was in such a state at one time that I shouted at him that if he didn't stop hurting me so much I was going to kick him. The good news is that everything was clear (I had 2 polyps removed last time) so I don't need to go again for another 3 years and if that one is clear I won't be on their list anymore. I won,t want to go again but I suppose what must be must be.
