Welcome to Colonoscopy Prep 101: a Class No One Actually Takes But We’ll All Definitely Need. Look, a colonoscopy—which is when a medical professional essentially inserts a long, flexible tube into your butt—can be a spectacularly useful tool when it comes to detecting changes or abnormalities in your colon (the longest part of your large intestine) and your rectum (the part of your large intestine closest to your anus). This can help your doctor investigate a range of weird gut and butt symptoms, like abdominal pain, persistent bleeding when you poop, or chronic constipation. It’s also one way doctors can screen for colorectal cancer.


For all its benefits, though, getting a colonoscopy is kind of like going to the dentist times a zillion: You know it can make a huge difference for your health, but it’s honestly scary and seems like the opposite of a nice way to spend your time. Luckily, some gastroenterologists have come to the rescue. Here, doctors explain 12 ways to make getting a colonoscopy a heck of a lot easier.

Also, ask Doc about Clenpiq (Liquid form of Prepopid, that was discontinued) Much lower volume and easier to take with less discomfort

The anesthesia was the best part of the whole deal. It's the closest thing to time travel I've ever experienced. Talking to the doc prior to anesthesia and one second later I'm waking up in recovery. It literally felt like the clock skipped 30 minutes ahead when I blinked. I'd consider doing another one just for that experience.

When I refused anesthesia, the nurse asked if I was an anesthesiologist.

I replied, No, why?

And she said, all the anesthesiologists do it awake.

If you are epileptic, you absolutely should take anesthesia. Versed, the most commonly administered anesthetic during a colonoscopy, is an anticonvulsant. I always take it per the orders of my neurologist.

I guess I just like the idea of supervised large-dose drug use in a clinical setting. I am equally good with peyote buttons and a drum circle in the desert.

  • Because a colonoscopy incites convulsions?
  • Because an epileptic can always use extra drugs?
  • Or do you really mean that if an epileptic actually needs anesthesia for any procedure then Versed is the drug of choice due to its anticonvulsant properties?

Oh yeah, that milk of amnesia they pump is a hoot. IMO only IV morphine is better.
