I have to have a repeat colonscopy Thursday morning and I am not sure I can do it again.

Has anybody experienced this? How do you get your mind set to be able to do it? He wants to do it because he removed pre-cancerous polyps 3 years ago.

I am just a wreck over the thought of going through it again.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Sally

Oooh...did you have a bad experience before? I had a really good experience with my first endoscopy (which sounds much easier, though) so the second was no big deal. If it was bad...just try to take the mindset that you'll just take care of business, get it done, and during the process, just look towards the near future when you'll be done with colonoscopies.

We'll be thinking of you :D

Hi Sally,

I honestly found the colonoscopy no sweat. I also was dreading it but decided later that it was for no reason. The prep for me was worse (next time I am going to get the softest toilet paper on the market!!!!)

He gave me drugs (I know Valium was one of them), and I was still awake, was able to see the screen, hear them talking, but felt absolutely no pain. Really, I have to have another one in about four months and I am not worried about it at all.

Just remember, your doctor is erring on the side of caution by doing this. I would feel secure in the fact that your doctor is keeping on top of it.

The only other thing I can do is send you some cyber hugs and good vibes!!!!

Sally,

I have had three endoscopies and colonoscopies. My only problem was vomiting and after the first two they discovered that one of the drugs was the problem. The last one wasn't bad at all. I think that you have a great doctor that wants to be sure that nothing develops. I found that the prep. was actually worse then the procedure.

Good luck! You will do fine! :rolleyes:
