Robbie & Puffer -
i had a colonoscopy a couple years ago.
i was put under completely.
it wasn't as bad as i feared.
they gave me a nifty CD video of the procedure so i can really get into myself!!! that was the part that really creeped me out.
i don't know if that procedure is anything like what you are facing.
for me the more traumatic procedure was a vasectomy - cuz one of my perps (step-father) had threatened me with castration. 1 was so stupid - i didn't even make the connection til i was on the operating table and about to go under. i flipped out.
so i think i get the level of anxiety - but in a different area...
i'll be hopefully awaiting good results (please -!)
