The procedure was winding down, which is when I woke up. I am assuming, I woke up early.

So they had to pull the camera-light out of my behind, but it really hurt a lot. I made noises, not screams, but loud.

Somebody was in charge of keeping me asleep until the probe was completed. They fell short.
I don't hate them, though. Everybody makes mistakes.

You mean the anesthesiologist? I do know waking up during procedures happens. I'm real sorry because the pain must've been insane. Lots of them do great work, and get paid a lot for their expertise.

Where'd you get it done? East coast? And I know that might be TMI so apologies ahead of time.

Can you describe the noise?

I had a lasertripsy ( insert a laser in the urethra to blast kidney stones ) today. Thank goodness I didn't wake early for that.
The noise that would have made!

My husband had a colonoscopy without drugs on purpose, because he thinks he's tough. He's not. When he was done I said "drugs next time then? "

But if you're unconscious, you miss getting to see your insides going by on the monitor, something you definitely don't get to see every day! I've been 'scoped twice now; the 1st time, the doctor gave me Demerol, & then a second dose when the 1st didn't put me out. Still awake for some reason, I watched the monitor, & was treated to the aforementioned sight. All was well until the scope reached a bend somewhere in there, & the doctor had to push the hose the way a plumber will push a snake to get it around a tight bend. That was the only time I felt any pain.

5 years later, I mentioned that to the doctor's assistant when scheduling another 'scoping appointment. She said it may have been due to an effect of the anesthetic. I chose no anesthetic for the 2nd time (why bother when it wasn't gonna put me out), & all went well that time, so maybe she was right.

I suppose the skill of the person doing the scoping also counts. It wasn't a pleasant experience, but I focused on the monitor & marveled at the technology available in this day & age. It helped me to not think about what was going on back there where, thankfully, I couldn't see.

I lost my dad to undetected colon cancer that spread throughout his body. He was only 52; he didn't see a doctor when he started having pains in his gut, because they would go away... until the day they didn't. He finally went to the doctor, but by that time, it was already too late, & his exit was slow & painful. All because he made a mistake in an area where life is most unforgiving of mistakes. Colon cancer is one of the more easily treated cancers as long as it's detected early on. I'll never know for sure, but he probably didn't have to die so young.

Yeah, getting 'scoped is a drag, but there's nothing like the peace of mind I get from knowing that there's nothing nasty going on in my colon. The scope is an amazing tool. In addition to the camera & light, there's also a wire loop cutting tool, & a spark gap to cauterize a wound caused by cutting. Not to get too gross about it, but I know this because both times, when the scope was on the way out, the doc needed to cut out a couple of rectal polyps that showed up.
What surprised me was that with or without anesthetic, I didn't feel a thing as I watched them being cut out, & the wounds being cauterized with the spark. Both times they were biopsied, & both times they were found to be benign.

And yes, both times, it was Party Time after getting the reports!

I hate hospitals so much that when I had a colonoscopy I went without any anesthesia just so I could get the hell out of dodge as soon as possible. If you do go the drug route your there way longer and need a ride home on top of it. It's not that painful, but then again all people have different thresholds for pain.
