"Rectum? I hardly knew 'em!!" On a more sensible note - that sucks, hopefully they removed it pretty quickly after you made them aware of it.

I'm wondering when it would come to the point where using "a shitty situation" actually starts to get upvotes just because the commentor was ballsy enough to use the phrase that everyone used to hate considerably and instantly downvote.

You're lucky they even put you to sleep for a colonoscopy. In my country, you are fully conscious during a colonoscopy

Pfft, why does anyone get put to sleep? In my country, no-one is put to sleep, although it is the norm to be sedated so a bit woozy throughout.

That sounds like it was a pain in the ass. In all seriousness, it really sucks that happened. I can't imagine the pain (or awkwardness) of that situation.
