thread Today, I are mostly be,
shitting through the eye of a needle.

I am having a camera stuffed up my hole tomorrow, and from lunch time today will be not only nil by mouth, but also taking very powerful laxatives, to make sure the pipes are nice and clear. Fortunately, the sedatives they give you shortly before the (w)hole unpleasant business kicks off are ALL teh lovely, so I won't notice it going on. Last time I had it, there was a large gap between being wheeled into the camera-up-the-hole room and coming to an hour later, sitting in the discharge room (ugh, couldn't they have come up with a slightly less icky name for it than that?), fully dressed, all giggly and stoned, albeit with a sore bum.

HELL

Walking like John Wayne?

Hope you're feeling better, and yes, the discharge room really isn't the best name, is it?
permalink Went to bed last night
in underpants and trackies, having spent the day pissing with my arse
permalink yay for bum control
:)
permalink what you don't want is the one that goes down your throat.. minimal sedatives
just a weak numbing spray
and the pipes that go down or not like the ones in 'House GP' those being the size of a pencil..
real life it's more like a dyno-rod thing and the closest to being waterboarded i hope i ever get
permalink 90nz0 had one that you swallowed
that passed right through you then you download the footage.
permalink Turned out OK in the end.
I'd been given a bum deal with the appointment forms, and just had a sigmoidoscopy, which just up up to the first turn, instead of a colonoscopy, which goes all the way to the other side. But I'd already been given a colonoscopy's worth of sedatives, so I drifted my way through it, all wrapped in fluffy clouds made of love. Came to in the waiting room, fully dressed, fiddling with my phone and drinking coffee. The very fact that I was hugely enjoying a cup of manky instant coffee attests to the strength of the sedatives. Am home now, smoking more cigarettes than is usual and still feeling a bit nicely buzzy.
