Which proceedure??

Hello everybody,
Yesterday my doctor told me that my condition is IBD and that I'm goin to be refered to hospital to have another camera proceedure...I have had 2 in the past but they only go so far into the large bowel and the one that they are referring me for goes right the way through large and small bowel and they said I will be heavily sedated as they need to find the inflammation....what is this proceedure called and could anybody share their experiences?
Many thanks

Sounds like you will be getting an endoscopy while being put to sleep. This is the normal test for me. I know being put under is not the best thing for you, but I can't imagine not having the Propofol.

Don't worry to much about the procedure. They will have you out quickly and then awake shortly after the procedure.

The prep the night before is what really sucks Go Lightly is disgusting. Try using Country Time Lemonade powder.

A capsule endoscopy, maybe? They usually don't sedate you for that, though.

My step father had this procedure. He mentioned it was very easy. You are basically swallowing a camera and recording its journey. Eventually, you will pass the camera/pill through a BM. Images are recorded onto another device.

You have nothing to worry about. I wish I had this procedure.
