6 years ago I had a routine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>colonoscopy</span> and
it was the most upsetting medical procedure of my life. Even though it was done in a hospital under Demerol and
Versed, I had excruciating pain, was thrashing about, totally awake, and
in such agony that I was begging and
screaming at the doctor to stop. Instead, he had me restrained in a Tyvek restraint jacket on the surgical table and
I was held down while he proceded with the colonoscopy
. It was traumatic beyond belief.
