    Volume for first sensation, desire to deficate and maximal tolerance volume

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Demographic data [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Demographic data related to excessive pain

  • Pre-endocopic levels of anxiety [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

The aim of the work is to determine prdictive pre-endoscopic factors for pain during colonoscpy. These factors may be demographic, antrophometric, socio-ecomomic, related to previous medical staus or to anxiety levels.

We will try to find an objective parameter for prdiction of pain during colonoscopy, so pre-procedural intervantion will be applied in order to reduce the pain.
