colonoscopy prep - what a fun night

I think the "no food" is worse than the double digit trips to the head. At least there is light at the end of the tunnel. So to speak.

Hopefully they don't go that far!
Good luck with it.

Drink Gatorade, you won't feel so hungry. I just had my 3rd c-oscopy done a month ago. Hope all is well.

About 2am I was sitting around feeling sorry for myself. Then I remembered what my dad went through towards the end with his bladder cancer. I suddenly didn't feel so bad.

On to the cameras. I'm ready for my closeup...

The prep is awful, for sure, but going through the procedure sure beats not paying attention to the point where you wind up wearing a bag. I'm due for a third one. Will hate it, but will do it.

Ask them if you can get a copy of the video. I know when I get this done, I'm going to request to have my own copy of "Journey to the center of Z-man."

And I will have a use for it -- during family get-togethers, the family tends to over-stay by 2-3 HOURS. So I can pop my video into the DVD player, and let it rip. At first, they may think it is one of my silly B-flick sci-fi movies. But once they realize what it really is, I think they'll be moving to the door faster than Nostatic was moving to the bathroom last night!

Good luck Todd - hope everything comes up clean for you.

I had my last one last August and I'm good for 5 years. It really wasn't bad, a liver biopsy is much worse, let me tell you!

Magnesium Citrate - 4 bottles and 6 Ducolax ought to do the job. Still beats the "GoLYTELY" shyte.
