Well I am glad that is all over with......the colonoscopy. As a lot of people said the prep is worse than the actual procedure. Took my first powder/colon cleaner at 1 pm on Tuesday and thought it wasn't bad. Took the second one at 6 pm Tuesday and didn't hate it.........didn't love it either. Took my third at 6 am on Wednesday morning, and could have vomited........but didn't!!
I am glad I read all the instructions thoroughly, as staying close to the bathroom was right on the mark. I mean at times I have never ran as fast for a long, long time!! On a positive note I lost 2 lbs in weight. So now when people say to you, "you are full of **it......well I can positively say, no I'm not!!!!
The whole procedure in the hospital took around 20 minutes, but they were running late. Never felt a thing, was totally out of it until the nurse woke me up in recovery.
So I don't have to have another one for 10 years, as I am as clean as a whistle!!
Anyone frightened or worried about having one; the procedure is a breeze, the prep I will not lie is miserable, but you will survive; have a good clean out and lose a couple of pounds!!! Also you can have peace of mind knowing that you have been given a clean bill of health.......
