Undiscovered Territory

I'm speaking, of course, about my colon. My soon-to-be discovered colon, unfortunately. I'm getting a colonoscopy on Thursday to try to figure out what in sam hill is goin' on. As I said to my transplant nurse, I don't *want* a colonoscopy, but if the only way to get some answers and some relief from my current predicament, then I guess I want a colonoscopy.

I have to start drinking that ghastly "prep" stuff tomorrow. And you know you'll get a weary review when it's all over. In the meantime, at the very least, I am proud to say that All I Ever Needed to Know About Colonoscopy Prep I Learned At Dubious Quality:

Having had 4 or 5 of these let me give you a few tips myself:

If you are going with the big jug prep...put it in the fridge. Cold is better for some reason.

Get comfy, buy some nice soft TP and dont plan on being anywhere too far from the bathroom.

I find holding my nose and just chugging down a glass every 15 minutes is much better than sipping slowly.

Enjoy the nice drugs they give you before you go in, they make me fall asleep very quickly

Good luck and enjoy
