Open wide and say "Ow!" (pain relief during colonoscopy)
If you do undergo colonoscopy, we strongly recommend you ask your gastroenterologist for pain relief, if he fails to offer it. (If you are not told to bring someone to drive you home after the examination, it is not likely that he plans to sedate you.) A combination of Demerol and a Valium-like drug can be safely administered for sedation; if your doctor refuses your request, you should try another gastroenterologist.
