    Just got done swilling down the second (and Final!) dose of super laxative. That stuff tastes gross!!!:spit: The first dose gave me diarrhea all afternoon and after this one there is going to be nothing left in my system. I have to get my system clean for surgery. About a month ago I weighted 444 and after the liquid diet prep program for the surgery I weigh 416. I go in tomorrow 2-11-03 at 7:45am to have stomach-reducing surgery. If everything goes well I should be back home from the hospital this weekend. :cool: . Ill let you all know how I progress.

  7. I feel ya man. I had to take that crap for my colonoscopy back in October. YUCK!

    I spent six months going to a Gastrointerologist whol told me that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but couldn't explain why. Turns out that I had a kidney stone in my left kidney literally the size of a 9-volt battery which was so large it pressing against my colon from inside my kidney and irritating it. I had surgery on it yesterday.

    I hope your surgery does the trick for you, and good luck.
     
  8. good luck to you dude. hope all goes well. :)

    I survived!! They were able to do it laperscoperly so I don’t have the Frankenstein scar on the stomach. Had a couple days of morphine but that got old and I am glad to be back home!!! Luckily the pulled the IV tubes out of my hands/arms a couple days ago and just used the one on the neck. Let you know more in the morning, I am going to play a couple of scales and off to bed.

    Well I’m up and about. Thought I was never going to leave the hospital last night. First my Dr got called away to emergency surgery before he was to check me out. Three hours later He finally approved my release but then the ICU unit where I was got a couple of emergencies delaying the nurse a couple more hours. She eventually came and pulled most the tubes out and sent me on my way. Luckily none of the emergencies were fatal. :D

    Well my neck is still unkinking, from having an IV tube in it. Last night I could only concentrate on the area around the 12th fret so I did up a 12 bar pattern starting on the E’s 12th fret (octave) and called it the “Hospital Blues” :bassist:
