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

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.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
