    Good to hear it went well.
    I have one booked for Tuesday and have been stressing since the appointment was made.
    Did they put you to sleep for it?
    That's the part stressing me most.
    Thanks
    Phill

    Had it yesterday
    I told em I suffer from anxiety and they hit me with something really good.
    Next thing I knew I was waking up in recovery.
    I was tired last night and have a sore bum today but all is good
    The prep to clean your bowels was the worst bit.
    I ended up taking my tablet into the toilet to watch TV while it lasted.

    Anaconda up the ass is one I've heard before too.

    One of my dad's mates had one a few months back and when they pulled the camera out he nearly shattered the windows with an almighty fart!
