    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!
