I did have one small polyp on my previous procedure.  They removed it and it was benign.

No solid foods today, but I can drink some black coffee.  What better cup to use than this one.  
I mixed up my miralax with sugarfree gatorade.

They do have camera pills, but it would not be nearly as effective.

Well, I'll be on the way home by 9am, so I'm not sure a cheeseburger will be the ticket, but maybe.  I guess McD's will make a cheeseburger at any time of day.

While FDA approved, (and often not paid for by insurance) thereís a new prep for colonoscopy that involves just pills and water. Sutab is the brand.  I tried it last spring for my procedure and found it much easier than the others.  I hated the syrupy sweet liquids you had to gag down. While you drink a lot of water, it was much more tolerable than the other two preps I had experienced.  The results of the prep were as expected.  ;D  Thereís no escaping that.

Interesting @doctorb im guessing it often depends on the doctor you have at the time.  This has been better than the last time.  I had to drink a whole gallon last time.  As it is, I had 64oz and I'm already done with it. I told myself last time that I would just mix the miralax with water instead of gatorade and then I went and did the gatorade again.  Now, tomorrow morning I have to drink the Mag Citrate.  I've never had that.

I had the same, not completely out when the doc started. I was just quietly waiting for things to begin, watching the monitor when I realized things were coming into focus and the TV show was starting. I piped up real quick and said "That's a view I've never seen before  :D" I've never seen a camera zoom out so fast. Next thing I was waking up afterwards.

On the other old man test, I went in for my annual a few months ago and he did a prostate PSA test with the bloodwork and the red flag went up, it went from around 4 to 11. He called me back in for an extensive finger wave and another PSA. While I was leaning on my elbows he asked if I had been riding a bike or driving a heavy truck on rough roads. "No but I'm digging out a basement with a bobcat and getting slammed pretty hard" "Ahh, that probably explains it". As we talked his dad had been in construction and he had his Dad's old skidsteer so he knew all about the pounding it can give you. I came back from that blood test with a 6 but told him I had ridden the bobcat that morning before seeing him. He sent a note with the results to come in when I was done with the bucking bronc. Anyway, for you guys running heavy toys if you pop up with a sudden high PSA number that can be the cause.

Good luck in the morn!

Back in January I had the prep (2 Gatorades w/prep added), wasn't too bad!

I just hate the thick/syrupy mix, then trying to get rid of that after the bottle is gone!

The worse prep I had was my first one, 8oz every 15 minutes until the gallon was gone, it was called "Go Lightly"!

Absolutely yuk!

They've come a long way since then!   :)

I'm all done and back home.  One small polyp again that was removed.  Doctor said they would let me know about the biopsies.  They also scoped my esophagus and biopsied that.  Come back for a check up in a year and 5 years for another scope.

I hope they stuck the camera down your throat first instead of later.

I asked them that SAME question, but my doctors donít seem to think thats a funny question. Iím just a cutup and the caregivers that I see on a regular basis (hematologist and the underling of them for checking my INR, which (while not accurate) I relate to viscosity) know me & my antics. Every time that I go in for a blood draw I joke with them about putting the tourniquet around my neck, or at least the sphygmomanometer instead, BTW, thatís just the PROPER name for a lowly blood pressure cuff. After the first time of my encounter then they realize that Iím just playing. After all, if you canít have fun then whatís the point?!

Like my new saying is to lots of people, LEMONADE. Cause thatís what you make when youíre handed lemons, right?!

My biggest fear is that it won't be clean enough and I have to go through it all again.  I'm VERY careful to do exactly what I'm instructed to do.
My first trip through, 20 yrs ago, they pulled out a small carcinoid cancer.  To which the DR said "we freak out when we find these but what ever you do don't go look on the internet".  Ha, yeah right, first thing I did....
Carcinoid cases where you wait until you have a problem - you have about 5 yrs max.
I've been clean ever since.  Grateful I went in.
The drugs are the highlight of the whole thing, for the 30 seconds I feel them.
They now such the air back out of you instead of making you fart which is nice if the nurses are cute.
Good on you for going in!

Nurses are professionals and KNOW that everyone has done & will do that farting sooner or later. Thatís another part of life. I think thatís part of why US young (redneck) guys find so much humor in it but only when itís done at the proper times ;)
