goodluck with the prep. It's actually the worst part of the whole procedure but at least you do it in the comfort of your own home. DO IT RIGHT, you don't want to go in and have them tell you they couldn't see everything. If that happens you have to do it again, it's not worth it to **** up the first time.

Thanks man. I'll stick to it 100%. It''s no worse than things I've done for bodybuilding, and this at least has a tangible purpose.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

Thanks. I'd guess I could fit into 30-31 pants (my 33s are loose) so actual waist might be 32-33".

Sorry to hear this man. Take care of yourself and I hope for the best for you! Colonoscopies aren't fun.

Had the procedure yesterday. They knocked me out really well - all I remember is talking with the anesthesiologist and then waking up in the recovery room feeling like I'd just paid my AT&T bill.

It doesn't appear to be ulcerative colitis or Chrohn's. Their best guess now is a serious bacterial infection that my body wasn't able to fully defeat on its own.

By the way, United Healthcare Oxford is the WORST.

Glad that it isn't UC or CH. Are you getting better?

I have some meds for what they *think* it might be, but no improvement yet.

To be honestly, I question if I'd prefer it have been something more serious, but quickly diagnosable. This middleground of not knowing what I have is really messing with my head.

This is what we have. What was bad about it? I've never used it besides office copays.

They drag their feet on "pre-authorizations" and out of network payments.

I want socialized healthcare just so they'll go out of business.

United sucks! I had to go to the doctors, a specialist, and have a 3rd opinion before they would even authorize a simple MRI! It was insane.

They are the epitome of why people hate public health care.

A lot of times when they cannot diagnosis stomach/digestive issues, doctors just chalk it up as IBS.

So far about $150. But I'm heading to the pharmacy now to get the medicine I was prescribed (you know, the medicine to help me stop sh*tting mucus and blood) and Medco (Express Scripts) REFUSES to approve the medication without physically talking to my doctor on the phone. Apparently, they are of the opinion I should continue getting dehydrated and contaminating my blood until Monday at 8am.

They can burn in hell.

I've never had a scenario where they didn't drag their feet unnecessarily. They are scumbags.

Who knows. I'm getting tired of this.

Heading to the gym tonight...I feel so small. Going to do a light workout, probably chest/shoulders/triceps.

Didn't make it to the gym that night, which makes it 3-4 weeks now. They prescribed me some meds which are helping considerably.

Express Scripts (Medco) still sucks.

Is it just fatigue or is it medical complications?
