"Painful colonoscopy"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

This was the most painful experience I have ever had in my life. I was told I would be offered Entonox but this was never offered. I am not a whimp I have had 3 children with complications and have never screamed like I screamed during this procedure. I felt like I was treated like a piece of meat, they were very rough. It is 6 days since the colonoscopy and I am still sore and my bowels are all over the place, worse than before.
