During my first colonoscopy years ago I had twilight sedation, but never asked what drug they were using. I can tell you I still remember yelling OW! several times during the procedure. Although I didn't remember having had any pain after waking up, clearly I felt some at the time. My gastroenterologist told me that going around some of the corners can get a bit tricky, especially for people with narrower abdomens, and that they had to up the drugs a bit to keep me quiet. I also woke up clear headed and felt totally fine afterwards.stavia wrote: ( there is pain going around the corners I am told).
I had that too. Plus, towards the end of the procedure, topical lidocaine.Stavia wrote:Vaseline applied liberally around the anal area before and after each bowel motion during the prep. Completely prevents burning.
