Colonoscopy is a way to look inside the colon, and remove, or take biopsies from polyps or other abnormal tissue.
A flexible long tube (colonoscope), which has a light source and a camera at its' end, is inserted into the rectum, and advanced foward into the rest of the patient's colon (large intestine). The video images of the colon are displayed on a television monitor, as the physician advances the scope through the colon. The doctor looks for abnormal tissue, or anything else that may be unusual. If a biopsy of tissue is required, the doctor has the ability to thread biopsy forceps through the colonoscope, and take a sample of tissue.
In more simple terms, it's like someone is putting a long camera in your butt, and watching the inside of your colon on T.V.
Since this procedure can be quite painful, patients are given IV sedation and pain control.

I've had it twice, and was told to come back in ten years to have it done again. The procedure is nothing. I was put to sleep and when I awoke I didn't even know they had done it. The worst part is the day before when you have to drink horrible-tasting laxatives, and you'd better not get more then ten feet away from the bathroom for the rest of the day. In the morning you have to give yourself an enema, which is also horrible. But the actual procedure is nothing, and there are no after effects.
