It sounds like prep is already underway, but good luck! I couldn't imagine having to go to work on prep day, you're braver than I am. I know you said it was just clear fluids while you were at work, but even so, I see people eating at their desks and all sorts of food smells come out of the break room - I don't think I could handle being around all that while on clear liquids only! For my last scope, I had some vacation days saved up, so I took 3 days off - prep day, scope day, and a day after to recover. That was pretty nice. Anyway, I'm rambling. Good luck with the rest of your prep and with the scope too!

Good luck! I hope everything goes smoothly, let us know how the prep goes and how you do with the scope, fingers crossed for you!
Thanks guys!!
Had a good ol scope, they got right to my TI, thankfully I was sedated!!
Turns out the first 8 inches from bum up is pretty much screwed, but the rest is looking great!
So now I have a billion different types of bum pill/ enema to play with...
Expecting my dignity back in the mail ;)
