Summary:

Based on the theory that people’s evaluations of experiences are disproportionately shaped by the end of experiences, modifying a colonoscopy by leaving the tip of the colonoscope in patients’ rectums for up to an additional three minutes without moving it reduced patients’ recalled pain and, at a median of 5.3 years follow-up, increased the likelihood patients agreed to have another colonoscopy if needed by 41%, controlling for medical circumstances.
