Yow. The colonoscopy itself was nothing. Literally: I was in a state of induced memory loss during the procedure. But in those days, the prep for it was beyond excruciating. The most recent one, though, was (by comparison) downright benign. Less than 24 hours, only two liters of awful stuff to drink and no agonizingly gut-wrenching suppository. I’m not looking forward to next year’s… but I’m not fearing it like I used to would.
