Did you read the part where I said the tube is only 1cm across?
That's why I specified you think of me.
Tom, my dad had colon cancer - it sucks. Take care of yourself and get this procedure done so you can catch any potential problems early. Best of luck to you.
had to do the radioactive egg last time. they didn't tell me it was going to be eggs. I HATE EGGS! also had a dry piece of toast and one little carton of oj. thought for sure they would give me something more to drink so i chugged down the oj cuz i was so thirsty. i had been npo since midnight and it was 10am the next morning. they said no, so i had to eat 90% of that meal with nothing to wash it down. then lay there for another hour while they checked the progress of my meal. ugh. npo also meant no pain medication since it can slow down digestion. i had been taking 20mg of percocet 6 times a day at that point. went over 12 hours without any and holy hell withdrawal is a motherfucker!
people wonder why i am in no hurry to return to the hospital even though it may be time, haha.
now back to you, tom. good luck! and enjoy the massive fart you will release awhile after the procedure.

my dad recently has his first colonoscopy and was asked if he wanted to bring music in while the procedure was done to put his mind at ease. He thought it'd be funny to bring in a half hour audio loop of roller coaster noises to fuck with the doctor as he was looking at the screen.
ITT: TomAz loses his sh!t.
I hear the guests at weekend 2 of this colonoscopy are going to be even better than those at weekend 1.

Thanks for putting this up Tom. i'm sure i will have to sooner or later and this will make it easier.
i'm just hoping by the time it's my time they will have that pill camera perfected. just swallow and shit it out when done. i have ~15 years, come on technology.
I don't see how that's gonna work though. I mean how does the pill camera look around? how does it see through shit? seems like you'd still have to cleanse your colon. which everyone here is saying is the real trauma.
if sasha grey can do it anyone can
I had one done a few years ago and just like the others are saying it's not that bad. I was fully knocked out. There was no way I was staying awake for that procedure! All I can say is make sure you have a good book handy in the bathroom...where you'll be for quite a while.
Also, good for you following through.
this thread is amazing, good luck to all that will be doing this procedure soon.
no topic goes unturned on the coachella message board.
She added the phrase "meany head" to my profile.I hardly think I'm an attention whore.I train birds of prey and am I licensed falconer
Especially the topic of old man assholes and their contents.
I hope the hospital has wireless. I'm looking forward to TomAz's post when he is not full of shit.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
It's great being a woman where we get fingers in the vag and anus simultaneously every 6 months. Too bad it's not only in the bum, that would suck.
All I can think of when I see Colonoscopy is the Fisherman-Santa Clause billboards that littered our main highway for nearly a half year and how Noir commented negatively every time we saw them. I wish you luck Santa Clause! Just remember to exhale when it goes in--works for me!
Maybe your doc is doing it wrong!
I think they check the skin layer in between the vaginal wall and anus. I get a finger in the ass everytime *shrugs* Good thing it doesn't bother me.
I have had several docs and that has never happened unless I was having issues in that area... Well once when I was pregnant, my OB sent me to the hospital for an IV and the fat sweaty doc there decided to give me an anal exam. I was 19 and very unprepared. I think I cried to my mommy after.
