    Been having this done every 3 years for well, coming due for number 4. It is not that bad, had worse things done for sure. If it saves my life it is well worth it.

    I nearly passed out the first time but it was not due to pain. The VA actually gave me the wrong prep sheet and it said to skip the morning meal before the procedure. You don't want to do that.

    Not the info I wanted, but very useful nonetheless. I'm pushing for full anesthesia.

    i have had 4 colonoscopies with no problems...other than the removal of pre-cancerous polyps every time, but the procedure is easy-peasy.
