I dont know how you drank it down, but there are a few tricks to make drinking it tolerable. Key is setting up a tv in the bathroom and getting a very comfy toilet seat. No matter how you look at it, its pretty shitty

Best laugh I had in several days.

I was knocked out completely. Out...snap fingers...back. Felt great afterwards because I knew Wendy's was only half a mile away.

The doc found one small polyp which he removed with the wire noose. Doesn't think it's anything. Sent it to the lab just in case. Hopefully 5 years before I have to do this again. Next time I'm going to try to find some other method besides that gallon of crap inducing, stomach churning hell.
Vid or it didn't happen.

I had a testicular ultrasound last year which, no lie, involved two pretty young ladies manipulating my naked junk repeatedly and in every direction over the course of a half hour while taking multiple ultrasounds. A couple other ladies walked in during the procedure. That's good, bad, good and bad. Think about it...

If you have not seen it before, here is a funny snip from Dave Barry's (Miami Herald Columnist) colonoscopy journal:


... I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an
appointment for a colonoscopy. A few days later, in his office, Andy
showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears
to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through
Minneapolis . Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in
a thorough, reassuring and patient manner. I nodded thoughtfully,
but I didn't really hear anything he said, because my brain was
shrieking, quote, 'HE'S GOING TO STICK A TUBE 17,000 FEET UP YOUR
BEHIND!'

I left Andy's office with some written instructions, and a
prescription for a product called 'MoviPrep,' which comes in a box
large enough to hold a microwave oven. I will discuss MoviPrep in
detail later; for now suffice it to say that we must never allow it
to fall into the hands of America 's enemies.

I spent the next several days productively sitting around being
nervous. Then, on the day before the colonoscopy, I began my
preparation. In accordance with my instructions, I didn't eat any
solid food that day; all I had was chicken broth, which is basically
water, only with less flavor. Then, in the evening, I took MoviPrep.
You mix two packets of powder together in a one-liter plastic jug,
then you fill it with lukewarm water. (For those unfamiliar with the
metric system, a liter is about 32 gallons.) Then you have to drink
the whole jug. This takes about an hour, because MoviPrep tastes --
and here I am being kind -- like a mixture of goat spit and urinal
cleanser, with just a hint of lemon.

The instructions for MoviPrep, clearly written by somebody with a
great sense of humor, state that after you drink it, 'a loose watery
bowel movement may result.' This is kind of like saying that after
you jump off your roof, you may experience contact with the ground.

MoviPrep is a nuclear laxative. I don't want to be too graphic, here,
but: Have you ever seen a space-shuttle launch? This is pretty much
the MoviPrep experience, with you as the shuttle. There are times
when you wish the commode had a seat belt. You spend several hours
pretty much confined to the bathroom, spurting violently. You
eliminate everything. And then, when you figure you must be totally
empty, you have to drink another liter of MoviPrep, at which point,
as far as I can tell, your bowels travel into the future and start
eliminating food that you have not even eaten yet.

After an action-packed evening, I finally got to sleep. The next
morning my wife drove me to the clinic. I was very nervous. Not only
was I worried about the procedure, but I had been experiencing
occasional return bouts of MoviPrep spurtage. I was thinking, 'What
if I spurt on Andy?' How do you apologize to a friend for something
like that? Flowers would not be enough.

At the clinic I had to sign many forms acknowledging that I
understood and totally agreed with whatever the heck the forms said.
Then they led me to a room full of other colonoscopy people, where I
went inside a little curtained space and took off my clothes and put
on one of those hospital garments designed by sadist perverts, the
kind that, when you put it on, makes you feel even more naked than
when you are actually naked.

Then a nurse named Eddie put a little needle in a vein in my left
hand. Ordinarily I would have fainted, but Eddie was very good, and
I was already lying down & Eddie also told me that some people put
vodka in their MoviPrep. At first I was ticked off that I hadn't
thought of this, but then I pondered what would happen if you got
yourself too tipsy to make it to the bathroom, so you were staggering
around in full Fire Hose Mode. You would have no choice but to burn
your house.

When everything was ready, Eddie wheeled me into the procedure
room, where Andy was waiting with a nurse and an anesthesiologist. I
did not see the 17,000-foot tube, but I knew Andy had it hidden
around there somewhere. I was seriously nervous at this point. Andy
had me roll over on my left side, and the anesthesiologist began
hooking something up to the needle in my hand. There was music
playing in the room, and I realized that the song was 'Dancing Queen'
by ABBA I remarked to Andy that, of all the songs that could be
playing during this particular procedure, 'Dancing Queen' has to be
the least appropriate.

'You want me t o turn it up?' said Andy, from somewhere behind me.
'Ha ha,' I said. And then it was time, the moment I had been
dreading for more than a decade. If you are squeamish, prepare
yourself, because I am going to tell you, in explicit detail, exactly
what it was like.

I have no idea. Really. I slept through it. One moment, ABBA was
yelling 'Dancing Queen, Feel the beat of the tambourine,' and the
next moment, I was back in the other room, waking up in a very mellow
mood. Andy was looking down at me and asking me how I felt. I felt
excellent. I felt even more excellent when Andy told me that it was
all over, and that my colon had passed with flying colors. I have
never been prouder of an internal organ.

I am certain I'll be going through all of this in the near future. 32 is about the time to start considering these visits, no?

Normally with no other issues to suggest you get one, colonoscopies are recommended after age 50.

I had the double with cheese combo. Usually, I get the apple slices side. This time I ordered and ate all the fries.
