I did it once...NEVER again. Maybe I read the instructions wrong, but it seems like I was on the pot for at least 6 hours the night before, I brought a book to read in with me. Maybe I OD'd on the laxative? Anyway I saw stuff come out of me that I never imagined lived in a person's digestive tract, including bile. I kept thinking to myself this is what dysentery must feel like. The actual hospital procedure was pretty painless, but a little time consuming.

I keep seeing on TV they have a kit where you just take a dump in a box & mail it in...I'm going that route next time.;)

It's really not a big deal .

Putting them off could be  the worst decision anyone can make.

Was great to lose my gut overnight  too

My Cardiologist told me at 52 if I didn't go for the Test that I should find another Dr. He had buried 2 family members that year and was adamant I go. I went. Yeah its not something I would volunteer for  but if it's something that I can do every 10 years I'll get it done.

There's a link to Comedian Dave Barry and his experience if anyone is interested but there is a Paywall on link.I don't know how to Post it. If you have had 1 there is some laughs, if you haven't its a pretty good account of what happens.

Good luck Tarhunt, hope you have clean scans for you and your loved ones. We'll be waiting for the full report :up:

Thanks for posting. The fun starts at 5:00pm. I'm trying to get all of my work done beforehand but, I'm not doing so well. 

Do not, and I repeat, DO NOT wander more than 20 feet from the nearest bathroom once you drink the prep.  My wife learned that the hard way.  I took her advice a month later when it was my turn.    :)

These are GOLD! You need to pick one of these and ask the doctor it when you have your after-action report:

1. 'Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'

4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas, we're now legally married.'

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.'

11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?'

12. 'God, now I know why I am not gay.'

And the best one of all.

13. 'Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?'
