Can I change the name of the article? "Unsedated Colonoscopy Better Tolerated With Valium"

I've got one "Trust me, Colonoscopy better sedated."

I had a colonoscopy without sedation, not that fun. But its so short that depending on what your life is like I guess.

I'm sitting here laughing, which is a great thing! What a wonderful (IMO) bunch of replies to this article................!
LilMissMerrySunshine replied to deal14's response:
Last September, in the hospital, I had a flexible sigmoidoscopy. I had already had two, with no sedation at all. They weren't bad. But this time I had to have some sedation, because after ten days of severe diarrhea, it was excrutiating.

I will not be volunteering for a full colonoscopy without sedation in this lifetime!
