JBQFC  phone the car park people and tell them what’s happened and if you can get confirmation note from the hospital and MAYBE common sense will prevail and you won’t have to pay , Other wise you will have to sell your locos to pay the bill .Our hospital car park is now £3-50 an hour min charge .

Even if they do charge you for the whole period, most hospitals have a much lower per day rate for in patients, but often don't publicise it. You usually have to go to the car parking desk or security and ask.

Got to go for a colonoscopy tomorrow. Just about to start the course of laxatives. Not really looking forward to it.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

I felt very bloated after mine - they pump you full of inert gas to expand things to give them a better view - which was painful, I can't lie. But that lasted a few hours only and was the only pain/discomfort I felt. The actual procedure was totally free of pain/discomfort, aside from the discomfort of irrational embarrassment that men of our generation might feel.

Best wishes for a thoroughly uninteresting result. :beers:

I agree with Railgooner, although I didn't suffer any pain from the gas.

It was done under general anaesthetic so I felt groggy afterwards.

Take a taxi home if you don't have anyone to accompany you.

All the best Malc,



Joe

I hope things go well @Malc  and somebody comes back to you and says "That was a waste of time, there's nowt wrong".  :beers:

When I had mine some years back the whole journey through the deep recesses of my gut were shown on a TV screen conveniently placed for me to watch. :goggleeyes:  Fascinating stuff that took my mind off the very minimal discomfort. Don’t remember having any anaesthetic, but think not.

All in all the inevitable pre-procedure nervous anxiety was the worst of it, and the need to keep within a few feet of the bathroom once the Pikolax (or whatever they give you to flush out your innards) takes effect is soon apparent.

Best wishes to you Malc. :thumbsup:
Mike

Just taken the first half litre of the Moviprep. I am now putting on my running spikes.

May I refer you to https://singletrackworld.com/2009/02/the-picolax-thread-returns/

Seems my iPad and that link don’t like each other. Or the site is full of pop-ups, ads, and other things that mean it’s taking forever to settle down. Sorry Steve, but I’ll give it a miss thanks.

Hmm. Loads instantly on my PC, but is rather slow on my Android phone, although it does work and isn't full of ads for me. I don't have any Apple products to try it on.
