Yesterday morning I had my annual colonoscopy. I can't believe it's standard protocol for sedatives to be given without question. I mean, I know a colonoscopy can be quite uncomfortable for some people, but I'm curious how uncomfortable it is for the average person. Because with a few series of deep breaths, I was able to manage the occasional discomforts. And the bonus was that I was able to go right to work directly after the procedure and not lay around sedated all day.
Oh, I almost forgot to say. Results were NEGATIVE. Everything looked good. My next colonoscopy will be in December 2011.
