Preparing for an endoscopy or a colonoscopy (not for the faint-hearted!)

Following on from my last blog post on diagnosis, I’ll now draw on my own experiences to help you plan and prepare for an endoscopy or a colonoscopy.

In this post, I’m going to be very frank about what will happen to you, or your child in an endoscopy/colonoscopy. This is based on my own personal experience. I’ve had quite a few over the years and I’ve developed a method of dealing with them.

I’m posting my method here to help the people who feel the need to know the details before they go into it. I’m one of those people but you might not need that help. If you don’t, walk away from the screen now! I’m joking but before reading any further, please consider that you might find this post the opposite of helpful…
