Kind words on a colonoscopy?

I've gone through several different tests to explain my chronic diarrhea. This is the only test left. But, it's kind of freaking me out. I'm a 26 year old woman and could use some helpful comments. I'm mostly afraid of being awake for the dang thing. I've read stories about people being awake... show more I've gone through several different tests to explain my chronic diarrhea. This is the only test left. But, it's kind of freaking me out. I'm a 26 year old woman and could use some helpful comments. I'm mostly afraid of being awake for the dang thing. I've read stories about people being awake enough to look at the screen AFTER being sedated! When I had my wisdom teeth removed, I was consciously sedated (pill an hour before, then given an extra dose at the office). Will this sedation be similar to something like that? Because I was OUT, and couldn't remember anything that happened for the rest of the day. Any kind words or suggestions would be appreciated!
