The study looked at roughly 25,000 patients in the Veterans Affairs (VA) health system, where colonoscopy is widely used. The agents found that a colonoscopy decreased the chance of death from right-sided colorectal cancer by 46 percent and left-sided cancer by 72 percent, equaling a combined drop of 61 percent. “These findings are imperative at several levels,” Kahi said.

  • Just had ine yesterday. The worst part is the prep. It is so important to do the prep correctly. As you take the prep luquid, you can see the bowel movements getting very watery, then clear, then a bright yellow. The procedure itself was A breeze.

  • My butt hurt shill. I feel like calling the doctor but my mom say they will do nothing about again like they did last year. I can.t go to the hospital because I have no ride there my mom will not take me there. Saying there a all of people some have the virus we just don.t wanna get sick like at. I be having this pain last year and right now. It’s come back like always than I feel better.. than it’s come back I just can.t live like this no more. I have no hope at all..

  • I’m having my fourth (I think) colonoscopy in September. I had 2 over ten years ago due to rectal bleeding from an unknown source. Then last year I had a positive Cologuard test, so another colonoscopy. They found 7 polyps and a lipoma. Luckly, none were cancerous, but I have to have a repeat to see if the polyps come back.
    The first one I got to watch. The second one I also had a endoscopy. So they gave me Versed. The last one they knocked me out because I have heart problems and COPD. I’m probably gonna be knocked out again for the up coming procedure.
    The worse part of the colonoscopy? The prep you have to do the day before.

  • Excellent work fellow Californians! God is blessing us through experts like these towards understanding our bodies and staying in the fight.

  • The whole thing felt like a 5 minute nap. I didnt feel a single thing during the endoscopy for my gullet and colon. Hahahh. So relax and dont worry!

  • With doctor oseigba mercy herbal medicine 100% cure is guaranteed. Call it any kind of infection, disease and virus..genital herpes, HIV, and cancer, your 100% cure is rest assured. Contact him today via email. [email protected] gmail.com or whatsap +2348141659546 and be happy you did

  • I had my first one done at 16 I was terrified, the stuff they give you to drink made me dry heave until I mixed it Gatorade after the procedure I was full of air it hurt. If you go to have this done have someone take you that really trust because belch like a man an fart alot. Lol my poor mom had me that day I am now 24.

  • Those gold little things seems to be biliar stones. It’s also recommended to do a liver cleanse using the Hulda Clark liver cleanse method. It also cleans or remove bilis stones.

  • Is the name of the anaesthesia fentanyl??? I almost died again by doctors that should not be working. In healthcare
    My dr billed for procedure but did not do it he is going down for this

  • It was the second most painful experience of my life, after kidney stones. I was awake during the procedure. They had trouble locating the entrance to the small intestine, took 40 min. Luckily I was int he clear, no cancer or anything else, but I did end up with more prolapse after.

  • Just had the procedure. Fell asleep and woke up (all within an hour, I even wondered if they did anything). Afterwards, I was given a ham sandwich and apple juice (sooo good).. then my hubby picked me up. The solution you must drink is bearable but unbearable was not being allowed to eat for close to 24hrs… in my case

  • The FIT test misses 30% of stage 1 and 2 cancers-these are the ones you need to catch in order to survive colon cancer. FIT really doesn’t do much better at late stage by missing 26%. Cologuard detects 94% of stage 1 and 2 cancers virtually the same as colonoscopy but without the risks. A few complain about a small percentage of false positives but the real problem is a false negative by FIT or colonoscopy (because of the 10 year screening interval). Cologuard is by far the latest and most technologically advanced test available today, is done at home with no risk of harms.

  • I just had mi e done, I was sedated but it felt like the doctor was pushing hard on my stomach to adjust his camera. Can that have happen

  • Honestly, the worse part of this procedure was the laxatives beforehand. The actual colonoscopy was fine, I had gas & air during it. The meds carrying it out were great.

  • They gave me the same drug that Michael Jackson died of, Propofol, and I was trying to sit in a chair and it almost rolled out from under me…. Nurse no where to be found. They said dismissed. why have chairs with wheels on them in a recovery room?

  • The worst part of the colonoscopy is drinking that stuff for the prep.. God almighty it taste horrible. Then you shit your brains out.. I was so scared before my first one but they are. Breeze

  • I was talking with someone that had a colonoscopy today and as soon as i went on youtube i saw this video as i was scrolling down like wtf

  • In Norway where I live, they never sedate you during colonoscopies unless you’re really struggling hard. I’m having mine in 3 days and i’m terrified. I spoke to my doctor about getting sedation but he refused. I also had an endoscopy about a year ago which was absolutely horrifying, had a straight up anxiety attack during the procedure because the discomfort I felt was unreal. All of you are so lucky to be sedated trust me..

  • So yeah, I’m due for a colonoscopy. I’m not a fan of being knocked out or even having mild sedation. Is there something different about this doctor that he didn’t need sedation?

  • I just had mine today and it’s not scary at all, got to the colonoscopy room and when they knocked me out it felt like 1 second passed and I asked when they was gonna start and they had already finished

  • I have had two or three of these and found them all very painful. The last one was the worse. I have since had a blockage. and emergency colostomy.

  • I was having stomach discomforts and tried to avoid the colonoscopy b getting every other possible conceivable test done but in the end after they were all done, I had no choice but to get the colonoscopy about 4 months later. They removed a polyp. The prep drinking was nothing, 250ML of picoprep, theevening before and then 1 litre of something else in the morning of the procedure. and then another 250 mil of Picoprep 4 hours before procedure. All the drinks I had to take were not in the slightest bit awful tasting. The whole thing other than being a bit hungry was a nothing event. in the end, I probably got better just knowing that I dont have weird stuff happening in my head wondering what’s going on. Get it done! It’s not worth the head stress!..

  • The doctor (patient) is brave to have this colonoscopy without sedation. I’ve had 2, and my first one was without sedation and I was all over the table. Thank God, my second one was with sedation. I didn’t feel anything. I’m having my 3rd one in 2 weeks. Knock me out!!!!
