Re: [IP] Re: Colonoscopy and a gallon of yuck



I've had 4 colonoscopies this year and my surgeon recommends Fleets.  It's a
whole lot easier to take and does a super job.  The procedure is a "piece of
cake" and should not be put off because of fear.
I sure wish I hadn't had my head in the sand.
Drink plenty of fluids, test blood sugar frequently and treat accordingly.
