Four tiny little pills.
That’s bisacodyl, trade name Dulcolax. I just took them. My colonoscopy prep begins…NOW.
I’m also on a 24 hour fast, which shouldn’t be intolerable, since I’ve got padding to spare. Then this afternoon I’m supposed to guzzle down an awful lot of this stuff called NuLYTELY, which is basically just polyethylene glycol + salt, which doesn’t sound good.
I optimistically think I’ll be able to finish up my grading while doing all of this. Right? No problem? Reassure me!
Then bright and early tomorrow morning I get some good drugs, an anal probe, and a surprise. Will it be a good surprise, like a new kitchen set and an all-expenses paid vacation for two in Cabo? Or will it be a goat? It’s like “Let’s Make A Deal” in my colon!
