Nice topic here, and all the better to know we all get our marching orders in due time. I became aware that Kaiser doesn't pay for anesthesia or conscious sedation. If that happens to be your insurance company, for heaven's sake insist on proper care, or pay for it yourself. This should be a painless and unmemorable procedure if its done right, other than the inconvenience of fasting.
Oh, and 4-pages for a colonoscopy thread...that might be a record.
