It did work on my iPad, but there were loads of ads. However I have drunk the first litre and its having zero effect, apart from sitting like concrete in my stomach.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

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

The advice to have moist toilet wipes at the ready is very sage. :D
We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.

That link is hilarious.  :smiley-laughing:

Last time I had the "procedure", they pumped me full of Versed (Midazolam) and I didn't have a care in the world.  Don't know if NHS offers that, but may be worth asking...

I don't want to encourage you to have a laugh at Malc's expense ..................................but I will.

Check out the Simpsons episode where Homer undergoes a coloscopy and Bart turns it into a video game !


P.S. The result of my coloscopy was all in order

I have had a few Colonpscopy's,I have Chrones disease,I usually have one every three years and I am due another this year. My appointment is near the end of July unless it gets cancelled again. I had picolax myself last time, the general advice is stay near the loo. I seem to have a lot of discomfort with these operations and last time beacuse of the painkillers they would not let me go home on my own in a taxi like I usually do. The wife had to come and collect me, she has a driving licence but does not drive so came in a taxi to collect me. The wife says I probably have so much pain because I am a tight arse, no sympathy at all. good luck Malc.

All over and done now. Should really post this in the happy thread, but thought Id close this issue. No trace of cancer or precancerous cells, no polyps, all looking good. Relatively pain free apart from a couple of times when the scope was going around corners. Because of the gas used to inflate the bowel, Im F**ting for England.

She who must be obeyed says I am spending too much time on this forum. I love her dearly but what does she know?

Glad to hear you had a good result Malc. :thumbsup:

Spent a long day in hospital myself yesterday as my wife Sheila had to have a complex hysterectomy and is feeling pretty rough and exhausted today. Surprisingly they may send her home later today, but Im hoping they will keep her in for one more night, at least until she is able to eat without issues, and the full effects of all the drugs they pumped into her have worn off. At least she has only minor pains, but the next few months are going to be a long slow recovery, during which yours truly will be kept busy doing all I can to help her recovery. Im likely to be very busy as she will have to take ir very, very easily, especially over the next few weeks. Time for me to put my cooking, ironing, shopping, household cleaning and other skills to their sternest test!

Good one, Malc.  :thumbsup:

I had 14 polyps removed. You win easily, mate. Zero is good.  :beers:

Please immediately write a manual and send it to me please @daffy
I hope Sheila recovers quickly but, if you prove to be good, progress may be slow ;)

Good news Malc.

And Daffy, I hope that Mrs Daffy makes a full recovery and gets back to normal asap.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
