I'm heading into the GI Doc this morning for every 2 year my pre scope consult. New Dr so we'll see how things go. I got used to the old Doctor, small fingers and a cute assistant.
small fingers are definately a must and a cute assistant helps take your mind off of it  ;D :D :D

Well I'm back. March 8th is the day. Met the new assistant, has a beard, mustache and looks like a power lifter. No idea what the Doc looks like. electricuted-smiley

Started the prep this morning.

I figure this will be my 10th scope in 20 years.

Not getting any easier although I have perfected the prep sludge a bit so I don't have to drink quite so much of the nasty crap.

My condolences on the prep phase. Next to trying to not paint everyone in the exam room it's the worst part.

go-lightly,, ha ha, that's an understatement, it takes lots of imagination to slam that stuff down, by the time they rolled me in I couldn't care any less,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

I had a colonoscopy last Wednesday and everything went fine. They removed a few minor polyps while I watched on the monitor. I wasn't out completely but did not feel anything. Worst thing about the whole episode was it was really cold outside that day and those OR's are always cold but I had a hot air hose plugged into my gown so it wasn't too bad.

This week I got a thank you card from my Doc and his staff for allowing them to look.  :D

Good to hear the hot air hose was plugged into your gown!   ;D :D ;D :D

Seriously though, that hot air does make it a lot more comfortable!   :)

The best part is what it might do to save your life.  The second best part is that concoction of drugs they give you, that stuff is as close to the after effect of..... as you will ever find.  'La Petite Mort' - the little death.

Everything went well. No troubles at all. Didn't even know it had happened. No discomfort of any sort after. That's the way to have it. :)

Hope they used 2 diffeant ones. :D
Glad all is well.
The Doctor did that to me many years ago. He met in the middle.
I only had a little 8 oz bottle for the cleaning part. The cleaning happened quick and often. ;D Years ago,I think it was a gallon jug. :o

They use Pico-Salax mixed in 150 ml water here (9 hrs apart), and 500 ml of clear fluid an hour for 16 hrs. After awhile you wonder where your bladder is, I think it moved. ;D
