Annual scope prep time!

Fasting today with my lovely liquid diet in preparation for my scope tomorrow.....have to leave about 7am to be at the hospital/GI office at 8...procedure at 9.

Gatorade all mixed up and in fridge - check
extra toilet paper by toilet - check
Kindle Fire charged and new books on it - check

Heading home from work in a few minutes, took a couple hours off so I can get my daughter situated before the 'fun' begins!

Good luck

I have to say last time I abandoned toilet paper, even wet wipes. Instead I jumped in the shower each time and hosed myself clean. It was wonderful!

Good luck Paso! Let us know how it goes.

I'm surprised you aren't going for the wet wipes and butt cream. Maybe it's just me but seems like every time I prep it gets more and more painful. :P

All went well, not sure how cleaned out I was as I still felt bloated when I got to the appt- but was in and out of the procedure room in about 30 minutes. Been resting at home now, belly gurgling away...needed to call my primary doc next week as they almost didn't let me out due to my bp being up.....ugh

Best news- remission!!!!! Continued......
