How fun. I get to have that and a colonoscopy this Friday. Can't wait.

Eew. Best of luck.

They dope you up enough that it's not uncomfortable. I don't remember a thing after the laughing technician.

FWIW, I stopped eating at 9PM the night before my procedure, they stuck the camera in at about 8:30 AM. This was not enough time to completely clear my stomach of food, to the disappointment of the doc. I would suggest more than 12 hours of fasting before your procedure for best image quality.

Did you not have to drink that horrible drink before yours that clears everything out ? I don't think they could make it taste worse.

Nope. They only give that to people who are getting the camera in the rear I think.
