I've never had one before. Don't plan to do it again, either. No one is our family has ever had colon cancer and I only eat red meat once or twice a year. We're going out to dinner tonight. I'm worried that I'll obsess over this mini-diet and feel totally deprived. But I know that I can eat again Monday at about 10:30 a.m. when it's all over. Yes, I'm going to be put under. I've had 3 friends who had it done and they were awake. Uh, is my anesthesiologist trying to make a buck, or did the nurse just take one look at me and decide I'm the type who needs to be out?
