Who here has had one or needs to get one and is putting it off?

I have this box kit and have to work tomorrow scared to take that pill while I'm at work would hate to shat all over the work place ,,,It says take the pill then after the 1st bowel movement start drinking the liquid. if I dont shat in 6 hours start drinking anyway..

I have the procedure being done at 11 am and want to make sure I'm nice and clean.

I might go buy a diaper for the ride home.

Still nervous about doing this.

I'm familiar with it(I have crohns) the first time I did it, I was told not to eat solids for three days and it was hell.........chicken broth, water, gatorade and sprite is all I could drink and eat along with the pills. Which made me feel even more hungrier after my fuging bowels were cleaned out.

The day of the procedure was smooth, checked my vitals, weight, etc...... put me under for three hours it was -- I believe. I was woozy and I had to vomit a few times after the operation, but all in all it wasn't too bad.

I had one done about a month ago. Other than the prep procedure there's nothing to it. They'll give you an amnesiac pre-op so you won't remember a thing.

Mine was to rule out Crohn's and IBD.

The prep is the worst part, the procedure is nothing really. Believe me once you take the first pill and start the liquid, you'll poo water out of your ass like you won't believe. So don't worry about waiting til you get home from work before you take the pill (assuming you get home dinner time). Drink water too, if you're too dehydrated from the ass water, its harder for the anesthesia line to go in.

Just attach the seat belt to the commode and don't forget to buckle up. Seriously, the drinking of the gallon of @(&%$## is the worst part

shitty!!!

agree with others...the prep is the worst. That liquid stuff made my guts turns inside out. Feel like they are going through one of those old style washing machine ringers.

I've had them twice. My policy is to take two days off, the day before and the day of the procedure.

The prep makes it difficult if not impossible to do much of anything other than sit and blow liquid out your hole all day.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
