Will colonoscopy always freak me out?

I'm almost 2 yrs NED I have no reason to suspect any issues, but I'm nervous. I guess it's because this is how I found out 2 years ago.

    Colonoscopies
    They freak out "healthy" people.
    I would think that there will always be some nervousness with them.
    Glad to hear you're 2 years out with NED.

    Scopes
    Maybe not. Less and less so for me, 7 years out now. I've had sooo many, I even go in by myself, just have someone drop me off and pick me back up, even the prep has become pretty routine. I still have that twinge of anxiety about the results of the scope and the bloodwork results, but less and less each time.
    Pam good luck with yours!!

    Nervous?
    Nervous? Why would having someone shove a six foot tube up your butt make you nervous?!? Don't get a colonoscopy don't at a cheap facility. The JVC camcorders they duct tape on the end of the tubes do not do well in low light!
