Funny LP story

This story helped me get through my LP with a smile on my face!  It is from a member on this forum so I am not going to share her name so I do not embarass her further!   :)  Thanks to the original author of this - not for the pain part but the COLORFUL TRIBUTE  you shared!


"I had it done under fluoroscope at a small hospitol.  I was on a big table face-down with an open gown, exposing not only my back, but my colorful drawers as well.  I didn't want to swear, so I just sang the Star Spangled Banner, loudly.  The table was hooked up to some hydraulics or something so they could tilt it, which they needed to do to drain enough fluid out of me.

So there I was, plus-sized purple panties sticking out, rocking back and forth, singing a tribute to the USA."

That is a precious story.  Thanks, I needed a good laugh today.  I will never forget that story.  I'll think about it at my next colonoscopy, either though I won't be wearing any underwear.  When it comes to looking at my butt sticking up in the air, it looks like an 18 hole golf course, sand traps and all....Horrible, just horrible!!!
