I am a psychiatrist and I'm an expert in assholes.

My first question is, where exactly where you when you got the anal probing? Alien spaceship, yer double wide or some hotel. I ask to try and determine how clean the procedure may have been. Do you remember seeing a green light and lil people with huge eyes? Or perhaps you were the subject of a new Ron Jeremy movie? Once you woke up did anyone offer you a cigarette?

We will get to the bottom of yer bottom issue...

Five is way overboard without a condition. They have to be finding reasons to put you on the six month plan.

Big polyps, multiple polyps, right side issues, diverticulitis or something.

You can get some good advice here... what is the diagnosis leading to all these procedures?

I woke up during the procedure and said "Hey Doc....that hurts like hell."

"Oh shit....he woke up....hang on sir, we'll up the dose...."

Nappy time. But yeah.....it's like ramming a garden hose into the ground to make a huge hole. I'm sorta convinced doctors are a sadistic bunch.

I woke up during one of mine, looked at the monitor and said, "hey, it's triangular in cross section." Doc said, "wait a second." That's the last I remember until I woke up in recovery. Other two I was totally asleep the entire time.

Did you leave the office with a sour taste in your mouth? That's probably just an upset stomach you have. It's typical when they take a look down your throat right after a colonoscopy.

I observed an endoscopy once. The guy gurgled, the anesthesiologist turned a knob a bit, the guy was quiet again.

I disagree about being totally under. I seem to have a high tolerance to anesthesia. My last colonoscopy went great, they juiced me up as I was getting wheeled into the colon observation room. The girl asked me to count to ten so I did, then I looked at her and said I'm still with you. The next injection put me on. I do remember when the doctor told the nurses to roll me over on my port side but I don't recall feeling anything.

When I had the rod put in my leg I clearly remember hearing the doctor saying that they needed to straighten out my leg more so he could get the rod in. I also remember hearing the pounding of the rod to drive it down into my leg.

The next day when the doctor came to check on me I told him I heard them talking & it sounded like metal hitting metal. I asked him what that noise was & he told me that they have to drive the rod down into my bone with a hammer. I had no idea that is how it was done until he told me. He asked if I was in any pain during the process & I told him no I didn't.

He told me I am only the 2nd person that had this happen to them in the 40+ years he has been a doctor.

Sedation for colonoscopies can be different be two ways 1. Moderates sedation by the GI team. 2. MAC anesthesia by the department of anesthesia. The anesthesia staff can get you much much more forgetful as they can use meds and dosages the GI doctors are not allowed to use. Even then, MAC anesthesia is still sedation and some recall is possible and actually common. You should be informed about that but GI doctors especially donít want to focus on any of that so they sometimes just tell the patients ďyou will be outĒ because itís easier to say that to uptight people as often GI patients are nuts.

The rodding issue.... I suspect you had a spinal. Spinals make you numb and paralyzed but donít do anything for sedation or recall so you get some colonoscopy like sedation on top of it. Again you should be told you can expect some possible recall.

General anesthesia requires a requires a breathing tube and then the rate of intraoperative recall is 0.02%.

Calling doctors sadistic or implying that they lie or donít admit things based on anecdotal internet info or your own screwed up ideas in your head is folly. Doctors base what they do on peer reviewed literature.

As for Garretís case, Iím inclined to think Whit hit the nail on the head. Iím guessing the aliens took him to try and investigate mysterious happenings in his past...

The first scoping was in 85, top and bottom, I had difficulties in going - diagnosis was IBS, - no polyps, etc ....

Dec of 2011 I quit smoking, four days after quitting and my belly ballooned up (distention) and my body went all haywire (a bunch of problems). I went from a 32 pant size and I gave up buying pants after I crossed over from size 46 in little over a month. I dealt with three different groups of doctors and I never told them about the others....I wanted independent results not collaborated results.....three scopes top and bottom in a few months....a few small polyps were removed but nothing was ever found causing the distention. My bowel movement was effortless and like clock work since 85-86 up until my Nov. scoping.

The Nov. prob (bottom only) was a 5 year follow up....nothing found, but the painful distention continues. There is no diagnosis for the distention nor is there a treatment plan, just endure the pain.

Attachment 1074399
I just has this done 2 weeks ago, told me I may wake up but they'd put me back under, told me good night and as soon as I felt the med hit the iv in my hand lights out... don't recall a thing, woke up without the slightest drug haze, felt like a great nap.
If I didn't know were I was I never would have guessed I was probed

I'll guarantee you though, if this wasn't a public forum my word selection wouldn't have been so kind.
I've had five scoping so far with the first one with no sedation what so ever (I'll NEVER do that again! That just wasn't right.), the next three I was fully out (the only way to do it, a walk in the park), but this last one I was only partially out (some new BS protocol so they told me) not so fun(I don't need to feel my back end being violated - I'll NEVER do that again either!).
Wanna go camping ?

From 32" to 46" in a month? I'd say yer full of shit. Stop eating anything and start drinking copious amounts of water, pedolyte and Gatoraides. No solid food and NO poutine or any alcohol! Stop the oxys or whatever the stuff is you do that makes you so weird.

If you weren't so quick to judge and insult - May 31 I go in for a pancreatectomy and I'm praying they don't have to do a pancreaticoduodenectomy. So I am not so lucky!
