It tastes like Gatorade with WAY too much Salt
I don't know what was worse-the last 25 miles of Saturday's ride or the preparation for today's 50+ examination. My goodness I just can't tolerate the stuff they give you to drink to clean our your innards. And the fact this time I had to drink 1/2 of it last night and then get up this morning at 4:30 am and drink the other half was just inhumane!!
I was supposed to have both an endoscopy (checking out the upper half) and then a colonoscopy. When I got there apparently there was a mix-up and they only had me scheduled for the latter. I pleaded my case as I REALLY did not want to do the prep again for several years so while they had me under they did both......at least that what they told me. I'm on the 5 year plan due to a history of polyps and reflux issues.
I had not slept well the past few nights so getting knocked out was very restful!!
They told me no driving or work for the rest of the day. I asked about riding my bike and they just rolled their eyes....
(With the number of polyps I've had I probably wouldn't be around to type this if I didn't have the checkups. Thanks goodness for preventative medicine)
Ride your Ride!!
