    Colonoscopy booked

    Iím so scared. Is the prep as bad as Iíve heard??

    The consultant said he thinks im dealing with ibs but he could see how anxious I was and said that we can schedule a colonoscopy to be 100% for my peace of mind.

    Its next Tuesday.

    The prep isn't fun but it's doable. Just have a couple of magazines, a book or a fully charged phone/laptop as you'll be spending a bit of time lounging in the 'reading room' The procedure is a breeze and they'll give you the good stuff so you won't care anyway.

    Thank you, does the diarrhea come with cramps? Is it painful?

    No... just urgency. That's why I said, stay near the 'reading room'.
