hi all, i had a sigmoidoscopy many years ago,while awake, boy that hurt. when i had my colonoscopy 2 years ago, the doc. put me to sleep, thank god. i dont know how you handled the pain. he found a polip and removed it. all those tests show is small tumors and the like. you would think that it would show a lot more. just a warning to others, before the doc says im gona stick four feet of tube up your behind, please get put to sleep first. the sigmoid was bad enough. oh yes and going around the curves, oh my god, talking about sweat popping out all over. i was trying to get off the table,lol. i actually thought i would throw up. be careful of who sticks what where!!!!!!
