My first post! I love it! A forum to talk about bikes and colonoscopies!
Just had mine Monday, but I seem to have had a different experience than most folks. They promised "twilight anesthesia"/sedation, and I might not remember anything, but I was chatting with the doc the whole time and watching the TV screen. 2 days earlier, I fell over on the bike while clipped in, waiting for a car in a Mexican standoff, so I had a big bandage on my scraped knee. The doc asks what happened, while he's doing his thing, so I'm chatting away about falling over, and he asks how many miles I do, how fast I go, how long a 25 mile ride takes, and I say, "well, it depends how fast I go.." and he chuckles, "touche!" Meanwhile, the TV is actually kind of fascinating, as I've never seen my insides before. I ask if I can get a copy of the video, and he says they only keep a few selected still photos, but I can have copies of those. I felt fine afterwards, but a 3rd party might have thought I'd had a drink or 2. No, I haven't started riding again, partly because bathing is such a pain as I wait for the knee rash to scab up. I'll refrain from posting my, uh, pix on the first post.
