    the prep solution? haha...din taste that bad leh. but the bowel clearing that followed no joke. really all the way till morning

    the colonscopy itself? piece of cake. knocked out before they stuffed the tube in. next thing i knew the nurse was waking me up to go home

Dun ask me why cos I'm also interested to find out...
    No, I went to SGH. Yeah, the bowel cleansing the day before was like a ritual, like what others said, - worse than the scope itself. Not only that, I was given a suppository to shaft it up the a** on the next morning to ensure that the whole system was purged. Even this itself didn't guarantee a 100% cleansing.
