I just had mine and chose the unsedated option. Nothing like seeing the inside of your colon in real time! It was not fun but(t) I do enjoy knowing I don't have colon cancer.

One of my best friends died of colon cancer because he didn't get a colonoscopy. One of the most treatable forms of cancer if caught in time.
I thought the whole procedure, prep included, was pretty much a non event.

^^^Me too!^^^

But conversely, think of all the critical places your money is going. Places like the military hiring 29,000 full time staffers just to convince people that the Pentagon is doing good in the world. And the Dept of Homeland security budget is $46,900,000,000 - why should you not pay to have some federal gov't dudes monitor all of your emails and phone calls or pat your ass at the airport? And of course, there is the $220,000,000,000 to pay for interest on old debt. That's just the interest, and we are borrowing 40% of that number just to pay that.

Kind of makes one wonder what will happen once we get this debt hole deep enough. Our kids will be thinking of us I'm sure.

There's a new site that's starting to post facilities' cash-up-front prices. You should encourage the Idaho facilities you worked with to list there - they're likely to get a bump in volume from cash payers. Click for the colonoscopy page.
