"Painful colonoscopy procedure"

About: East Surrey Hospital / General medicine

(as the patient),

I experienced extreme pain throughout the procedure

I was not offered entonox to give me pain relief

I remember every minute of the procedure

They need to re write the colonoscopy information booklet but my experience was the complete opposite

The general treatment by staff was good.

Dear Deltalady37

I was sorry to read about your colonoscopy experience and passed your comments on to the unit manager. She would like to look into this so if you would like to send me some more details I can pass them onto her.


kind regards
