I agree, totally out is the way to go.

For real? Ramsbottom? Why not change your name to Dr. Gentlehands, at least in the medical world?

Dr. Ramsbottom. heh. Oh yeah, we had a few good laughs about that one.

The gastroenterologist who performed my very first clonoscopy was Dr. Klotz.

I had one a couple of years ago...

During the preparation period, unrestricted access to a toilet is a must, but otherwise the process is easy.

The person who went in before me got to see his polyps in a jar before they went to be checked for cancerous cells... I didn't have any. Eight more years to go.

Once I was rolled into the operating room, I was told by the anesthesiologist that she was going to give me something to help me relax... the next thing I remember was waking up in the recovery room.

Did anyone see Ghost Town, where Ricky Gervais plays a tight-*****ed dentist (excuse pun) getting a colonoscopy under general anaesthetic?

Maybe the valium route is the way to go.

Speaking of the dentist, I've decided to blend these two events together and visit the dentist (7:30 am) for a checkup just prior to the colonoscopy (10:00 am) so that its just one time off instead of two. It's been awhile since I've done the homework for a colonoscopy so . . . er . . . do you think I'll have my paper completely finished before toothtime, or will I still be jotting down a few final conclusions up to the 10 am starting line and thus I should back out of the dentist visit?

Only inconvenience was I had to fast the day before. When the big day comes they wheel you into the room, squirt some stuff into your I.V. tube, then the next thing you know you wake up in the recovery room. I had mine early in the morning.
We stopped for biscuits and gravy on the way home.

That is what I did... It worked out well, although I was a little concerned that perhaps some residual laxative effect may hit me while in the dentist's office. It ended up working out just fine.

I woke up a couple of times during the night, but by the morning my system was pretty much as cleaned out as it was going to get...

When I was having issues they wanted to rule out Crohns. I have Celiac disease they find that going down the other way. I may have another colonoscopy though due to new issues. Hopefully they'll just do a pancreatic drop instead through my nose. There is an extremely small possibility they said though that it could still be very minor crohns or colitis that is causing the new issues. Most likely though its not.

That's quite a lot to deal with. For several years, my mother had been misdiagnosed as having Celiac. She does have a form of colitis, and I wouldn't wish either on anyone either.

btw - you look remarkably like my godmother did when she was quite a bit younger.
