I had my primary care request a colonoscopy for me and i cancelled the appt out of fear. she said she ordered it because i turned 50 and thats the age that they test at. i have trust in the people of this website and i was also hoping for some feedback from a victim oh i meant a patient (lol) of this procedure. ive looked online but i really would rather hear about it here. the procedure sounds nasty and perhaps painful. i read where some doctors put you out and some dont? advice would be appreciated.
