    This afternoon they knocked me out and found one very non-cancerous polyp from the colon exam. This is common. The procedure was the easy part. The hard part was the night before drinking at least a gallon of barely palatible solution and the obvious frequents to the bathroom. Finding out at; the last moment I could not get a taxi was a huge headache (legal/liability issues from fraudsters. :rolleyes: ) A co-worker was able to help out. :) I'd get slapped, but 1.5 hours later I was driving better than most of the people on the freeway. :p

    Tort Issues

    Redtape/legal stuff is so much a part of our lifes - more than I care for.

    When I had a colonscopy four years ago, I was over being knocked out just two hours later. I found out in "the fine print" the day before the procedure they don't allow taxi's to pick me up. Spent a lot of time on a "fire drill" to find a co-worker to do a ride. The clinic did not have beds to spend a half or full day. :(

    I think most of you figure out why they were so strict. Someone must have left too soon after a procedure and got in an accident. They found a good trial lawyer and got a large award. Now the clinic is being very strict to avoid another lawsuit.

    What makes me angry is I know some peiple delibertly sue for profit A former co-worker stands out in my memory.

    He is going thru a lot of things I won't discuss, but I have to draw the line a intentional deception that became apparent towards the end. One lunch, we walked to a resturant (it's what he wanted). We arrive at high noon - peak hour. We gave our orders to the waitress and waited 15 minutes. Quicker than I could react, my co-worker looked at the watch and did this staged "OMG - it's getting late!!!" and complained to the waiters if was critical he get back from luuch within the hour to avoid the wrath of his supervisor. We both got our lunchs free, but afterwards, he rationalized that he did not raise his voice or use profanity - just acted like he was going to have a heart attack. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Eventually, I got the truth out of him that he had planned it. (Why did he walk if his supervisor was putting his lunch breaks on a stopwatch?) After all, he had done planty of thespian acts at work. Sadly, con artists are also good actors.

    Let's just say I was experiencing some hardships possibly caused by people that sue for profit.
