One of the most unpleasant experiences I ever had.  Here's the procedure:  drink 32 oz of water at least 1 hour prior to the procedure - your bladder must be full for the procedure.  Feet in the stirrups, yadda, yadda, yadda.  Now hold still and try not to move for the next 30-60 minutes with a full bladder while they probe you with this instrument - over and over and over until they find what they need.

Ladies - if this shit passes, you have my permission to pee all over them!

Wow!  Thanks for the recs!

1:33 PM PT: Just a quick note - I'm not trying to scare anyone or say that the procedure - when medically necessary - is not a valuable tool.  I consented because my doctor and I felt it was necessary.  This was my experience (and others by the comments).  What is being proposed is state-sanctioned rape AND battery.  I hope saner heads will prevail but I'm sorry to say they probably won't.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
