Can’t Look Back Now

3 Jul

Well, I finally did it.

In the on-going saga that is my butt, I finally did the unthinkable.

I made an appointment to get my butt looked at.

From the inside.

Yep, that’s right. Mama Bee is going all Katie Couric on you and will be blogging about her colonoscopy.

I mean, shit, if having a camera shoved up your ass isn’t blog material, then I don’t know what is.

Go ahead. You can cringe. I’m doing it too.

So if you don’t hear from me a ton next week, it will be because I will be literally shitting my pants in preparation of the procedure.

And as if the medical equivalent of this (see below) isn’t bad enough…

Bull Colonoscopy

…have I mentioned my previous problems with anesthesia?

Seriously, I once required a root canal and had the procedure started while I could still feel my teeth. I then went to a dentist that would knock me out for the procedure and they still couldn’t knock me out enough!

I shit you not, before the root canal they had me take THREE Valium and I didn’t feel a thing!

And during the root canal, not only did I wake up multiple times during the drilling, but I also became so sick from the anesthesia that I vomited, right there on the floor, every time I drifted back in to consciousness.

So you can understand why I’m a little hesitant about this whole camera-shoved-up-my-ass-but-don’t-worry-you’ll-be-drugged-and-won’t-feel-a-thing deal.

But like I said before, it should be blogging GOLD.

    That’s the attitude. My hubby had one and said the prep was worse than the procedure. Who knows, maybe you’ll lose a couple of pounds during the colon cleansing. Another bonus.
