    Hope it wasn't Stepping Hill, because that's where I'm going.

    There is only so far they can see up with this and down from the top with an Endoscopy so if they send you for further scans then don't worry,it's so they can see in the middle bit

    I chickened out and had the sedation. Only had to stay an hour or so but couldn't drive for 24 hours. I had 4 polyps, was told I would have to have the procedure every 3 years.

    On the plus side I lost a few pounds with the 24 hour starvation diet and drink.

    I'm having mine tomorrow morning. I drank the polyethylene glycol 2.5 hours ago and nothing is happening.

    You need to drink plenty of fluid to make it work. The stuff I took for mine was vile and I had to drink so much every hour to make sure it worked. A nurse told me they had a far nicer tasting method but didn't use it because it meant patients still had to drink several pints of water afterwards but they never did. So they used to one which contained "medicine" and made them drink it every hour.

    I'm 35 and have my 3rd one early next year.

    On a gene testing programme, as lost my mum at 55 and my sister at 32 to bowel cancer, so they are testing me and my sister every couple of years. The worst part is the clearing yourself out the night before.
