First, I was only able to swallow 28 of the Osmo.   It's not the pills it's the amount of liquid.  I got a "good" grade on how "clean" I was.  The tech said the next grade was "excellent".  From the clear appearance of the toilet bowl contents at the end, I was disappointed at my low grade. 
This time my only memory of the procedure was a minute of dizziness after the injection of the anesthetic.   I had no memory of being positioned or the insertion of the scope-- unlike the past times--which were not uncomfortable.

Glad your colonoscopy is over and that you pretty much slept through it.  Keep us updated.
