Am I right to say no to this colonoscopy? Horribly personal details inside.

I have a generally irregular digestive tract. (Loose bowels, mostly; no pain.) I went to the doctor, who did four blood tests and a urine test and a stool test. Everything came back normal. He did 3 more blood tests to "double check," and wants to do a colonoscopy.
Now, to be honest, this seems unnecessary to me. I'm 29, and all of the tests so far seem fine. Furthermore, the anesthesia and colonoscopy are not without risks. What do you think, hive mind?
