So, you are now 45? The Dr. recommended you get your first colonoscopy, but you are hesitant? Don’t worry, it’s not bad at all and the worst is the day before doing the liquid diet where you are prepping. The procedure itself, we were in and out total time of 2 hours and 15 minutes. That’s it, once I got out of the waiting room, I got situated in a bed and they had me put on a gown. Started the IV and did some paperwork. Once they wheeled me back to the room, they got me to lay on my side. Once they injected the sleepy medicine, I remember it being cold and then next minute waking up in the recovery area. I was out for 15-20 minutes total, but it was so weird that there is zero dreams or memories of that time. But when I started to come to, it was the most relaxed feeling, like I had been sleeping for hours and hours. Luckily for me, there were no polyps or any issues. If it’s time for you to have one done, don’t stress. It’s easy! You can do it!
