Double Balloon Enteroscopy

My IBD doc is recommending I have this done and am scheduled for it late July. It seems kind of intense. Like a colonoscopy but goes into the small intestine, and under general anesthesia which is always a risk. Has anyone had it done?? How did it go? Was it a helpful diagnostic for your case?

In my case my bloodwork is good but my MRI is bad, so they want to make sure before switching me to Stelara that if it's just scar tissue they'll leave me on Remicade.
