Thread: Freaking out! Getting Scoped!

  1. #1

    Unhappy Freaking out! Getting Scoped!

    As the title suggests, I got a call from my doctor's office and they scheduled specialist appointments later this month which includes scoping of both my bladder and bowels.
    Don't know whether to thank or hate my doctor for actually caring and trying to help me.

    So, question to the other incontinent people here, I've never had this done before, what is involved? Pain or just discomfort? Do they freeze, put you to sleep? etc....

    Thanks in advance for any information and support!

    They should use a sedative. And If the are not ask for one.

    It's very painful. Very. And Also Make sure they use a lot of lube. And by a lot I mean more then you would use for anal sex. The shit hurts...

    I am neither incontinent, nor have I been scoped.

    But the procedure will be done with sedative and what is described as "discomfort." I have heard of them putting people to sleep before, but as I suspect they'll not be trying to look TOO far up you, I don't think you'll face that.

    They will probably give you a saline-based laxative to drink the day before; from what I've read, it tastes like crap, but is VERY effective (e.g. DO NOT leave a toilet during that day).

    If they find polyps they may go in an excise them from the intestinal wall. Again, "discomfort" is the word that gets used here.

    I don't know about you, but were I getting scoped and they wouldn't put me out, I'd want to watch the monitor!

    Everytime I've been scoped, I was either fully asleep when it was at the hospital for total bowels scope, or only "high" from anesthetic which in my case was Dormicum, 10mg, excellent! 15 seconds after the shot it's like you're a little bit drunk, you are still conscious but don't really realise what's happening. You can see everything on the monitor. You can't drive and nor be left alone for 24hours.

    The preparation is the worst part, 3 days prior the colonoscopy you have to undergo a low residue diet, then the day before you drink the laxative H3g3l was talking about. It's really gross! But try to finish it! I couldn't as I was constantly gagging, so the next morning, when I was at the hospital, I wasn't "clean" enough inside, so I got an enema. So better finish the laxative if you don't want another embarrassing exam!
    This is really a pain, I mean your already sick, and they give you such a powerful laxative that your guts will cramp badly. I spend like most of my night in the toilet.

    The scopes aren't really painfull as you are drowsy/asleep. Actually, I hated the gastroscopy (tube into the mouth until the stomach) much more than the coloscopy (well...I guess I don't have to make you a drawing you all figured out where the cam goes). After the coloscopy, during a few hours, you will feel bloated and it's a little painful.

    Anyway, it's no big deal. There are much worse exams than scopes (well, at least gastro/colonoscopy I dunno for the bladder)

    It's unpleasant, but I've had worse. Foot surgery and a root canal was more painful. But it's no walk in the park. If they offer you a sedative, go for it.

    I was scoped a couple months back when I was suspected of having Crohns. they gave me a laxative enema about an hour before the procedure to clear my lower bowels out, was not that painful but there was a lot of discomfort, no sedetives but I did see some people being put under for it so I guess its optional.

    Cant really advise on the Bladder part but I'm guessing it'll be a hell of a lot more painful as theyll be going up your urethra so I'll be willing to bet you'll be put under for that at least

    Exactly what I did, its interesting seeing inside yourself as the scope pushes up to just below your rib cage.
    With mine they also took biopsy samples, weirdest feeling ever having someone tug at the inside of your gut o.o

    I only have had my penis scoped. They give me a few pills to take before the procedure. (They were actually anti-anxiety pills people take for bad anxiety attacks.) It is supposed to relax you. It is very discomforting in my opinion to get a tube with a camera on its end shoved up your pee hole, but better safe than sorry.

    I need to get this done about twice a year... along with an ultrasound (for my kidneys) once a year. (But ultrasounds are fun! :P).

    Thanks all, I think I'll be ok with the colonoscopy, as bad as some people say it is, but its the "cystoscope" (bladder) that has me squirming. How the hell is a camera going to fit up there, better be damn small!!
