    Did mine last year and got a clean bill for 10 years till next recommended.
    The prep was nasty and I felt starved, but the procedure was nothing.

    It’s different when friends and coworkers are doing the procedure. A little humor is needed. :)

    I did get a little nervous when they lowered the lights in the ER. As I trailed off to Propofol lala land, was that Barry White music I heard playing? :shock:

    I hear you. But you can get those FIT kits over the counter cheap. They're really easy, no touching the dookie.

    I had a colonoscopy done when I was 10. I thought it was weird that my dentist performed the procedure, but it's good to know I'm healthy, and I got a lollipop afterwards. :thup:

    ------------------------------------------- yep , I know , Doctors office called a few days ago reminding me that they are all ready to go . No real reason not to except , just except or because . I figure that the phone call was just to get me saying NO once again due to liability or something . Thanks for the info M.Mike .

    Mine was much the same, except there were 2 doses of the OTC prep. I was sitting at my desk after taking the prep stuff, just waiting for the storm. A few rumbles, but no feeling of having to go. Then I sneezed. Just a word of warning, DO NOT sneeze after taking that stuff. The bathroom is less than 10 feet from my desk. That is a good thing. I wore out the floor during the rest of the night.

    I was not given oxygen, but I did like the meds in the drip. "Twilight" is a good word for it. "Stoned" is another.

    One plus was that the Dr had the big tv right beside my bed, so I got to see what he saw. Granted, he wasn't stoned like me. Or at least I hope not. But it was cool to see all my shiny pink insides.
