Clean as a whistle..........

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.......

It's the knowing that you don't have to have it done again for years which is the nice part.

glad to know it isn't too bad! I have yet to have one, they send out a kit so you can do it yourself at home but i am lazy about that.

I never made it to recovery. I woke up while the nurse had her back turned and said, "Is it over?" She screeched and said I scared her as I was not supposed to wake up so soon. I need it done for the third time. I had polyps.

I have the misfortunate to come from a family with a serious history of bowel diseases from colon cancer to crohns to ulcerative colitis, so I take my colonoscopy very seriously and get them every two years. I find that altering my diet a couple of days before the swoop really helps with the misery. It's a small price to pay to alleviate a lot of that discomfort.
