    LOL, I did that. I told my wife I wanted chick fil a, a juicy burger, and maybe even a pizza too :)

    By the time I was done I was not particularly hungry and just wanted to go home and take a nap. I think I had some pretzels.

    Man, I wanted food NOW after both of mine. This last time we went for a late breakfast and I had eggs, biscuits, bacon, gravy and sausage.

    The SurePrep I was provided had a week mediciney grape taste. More like some cough syrups.

    And just two doses, 16-oz each with 16 oz water chaser.

    Suprep is the actual name. The competitor is the rather inappropriately named GoLYTELY.

    Remember: white wine is a clear liquid.

    Not sayin'. Just sayin'.

    All done, I was awake and coherent throughout the procedure and saw what’s up my arse .... literally. Couldn’t find my head up there, contrary to popular belief among people who knows me. Not having anything to eat for 1.5 days was the worst part of the whole process.

    Prior to my colonoscopy, the Doctor asked if I had any questions...... I said no, I watched the Foxworthy video. LOL

    At the VA hospital in Albany, New York, they get a history (including any previous experiences with anesthesia), obtain informed consent to anesthesia or sedation if it should become necessary during the procedure, do a quick physical and blood work the day of the procedure, and start an IV before they start poking around. That seemed sensible enough to me.

    The nurse told me that more than half of veterans who get their colonoscopies there decline any anesthesia or sedation. Whether that's because we're tough or because the VA is the only place where we seem to have that option, I don't know. I suspect a bit of both.
