Colonoscopy went well this time

I've posted before about my really traumatic first colonoscopy, and how it left me very fearful of undergoing the procedure again. The sedative (pethedine) hadn't worked at all and the pain was agonising.

This time I finally had it done and I was given painkiller and sedative, midazolam and pethedine. This calmed me down and the pain, while very unpleasant, was just about bearable.

The big difference, though, was that the staff were all kind, sympathetic and encouraging to me, and they gave me an hour slot instead of the usual thirty minutes. So much better than a rushed procedure with impatient staff and just a cursory attempt at sedation.

Just a shame the findings were Crohns.

I am that all went well. I never get anything to sedate me just something to help relax but that does not work at all. I also think that having such nice docs are what it should be like. :-)
