Not a big deal. Just don't be more than 20' from a toilet. You can do this.

No big deal, just take your prep like directed, don't get to far from the bathroom, be ok with the guy sticking the hose up your arse wanting to talk afterwards.

I waited until I was 64 to do it. Was waiting for the Capsule to come out but it never did. [Capsule instead of the scope]

Get some Zinc Oxide Cream/Ointment (diaper rash cream will work) and apply liberally around the exit port before the first dose of the prep and after each discharge. Sure does good to prevent a bad case of the red a$$.
As for drinking the stuff, mix it into some gatorade of the allowed color and have it really cold, ice crystal cold as it helps with the taste.
No biggie, I had to do one every year for 5 years. You got this.

had my first one this year. Did the tablets. No issue, wasnt bad, worst part of all of it was just fasting for day. Procedure itself was nothing.

My second was Monday of last week. I wish I had heard the Zinc Oxide Cream recommendation before. Some parts tend to get a little tender after a several trips to the toilet.

I woke up during my 2nd one last summer. Only thing I remember is lifting my head, seeing my guts on the screen, and watching three masked bandits all turn and look at me simultaneously like I just caught them in the crime of the century... eeks333

Went back night night after that. roflmao

As long as one wasn't kicked back having a cigarette I guess it went alright.

I'm on the yearly schedule now that they found and removed polyps the last 2 times. Pre-Prep works great for me. I start 2-3 days before by eating only soup and such and drink lots of liquids. By the time for the prep juice, I'm already halfway there. The diaper rash cream trick does work.

It’s not that big a deal, though it is uncomfortable and bothersome to go through the process. And, from reading all the comments, there are some guys on here with delicate exhaust pipes. wink

My first scope job was in 1980. I had never heard about such a thing, but they sprung it on me at the back end (no pun intended) of a detailed physical. The doctor told me all about it and showed me the machine - air pump for inflation purposes, headlight for seeing in the dim places, joystick for pointing the headlight. And, I didn’t get the prep solution. Back then they gave you a sequence of enemas on site. Mine were administered by a cute blond in a room full of people doing other stuff. And during the scope job, they didn’t put me to sleep. Wide awake during the whole thing, which I think took about a week. So, if anyone is whining about a scope job in today’s hospitals, I’m not listening. Buncha sissies…

To borrow a line from Bad Santa “I ain’t s___ right for 2 weeks”.

It’s not that big a deal. Don’t worry about it. We all make a big deal out of it for fun. You check in, wait a while, they come get you and take you back to the procedure area. You get into your fancy new backless duds and they gave me some baggy warm socks. Then you get an IV, after which you wake up and they tell you the results. The worst part of the whole deal is getting cleaned out from drinking that liquid. Dog sweat, I call it.

Yup, the actual procedure is a cake walk. Enjoy the nap.

Good to go fellas, appreciate all the commentary. Zero polyps found . I’m good for ten years the doc said.

Like most of you already mentioned, the prep isn’t terrible as long as you’re prepared for a toilet visit every 20 minutes .

The anesthesia was glorious and did result in a nice nap.
