Full At Last

First of all, I need to thank you all so much for your ever so supportive comments today about my "procedure."  They really made me feel special, although it could have been the drugs I was on which don't wear off until supper-time (now)!!!

After reading some of them, though, I am glad that I didn't get to them until just now.  Some were a little worrisome!  For those of you that had a bad experience with it, my heart goes out to you and your relatives.  However, when and if you have to be scheduled for a colonoscopy, it's REALLY NOT THAT BAD.

Yes, yesterday evening, it was a bit of an inconvenience having to stay on the throne with my sudoku book in one hand and a glass of my "poo-poo juice' in the other! LOL!!!  

And yes, this morning I was starving.  However, the procedure was so non-eventful.  Everyone at the hospital was so sweet.  Did you know that they have the coolest thing now?  You know those gowns you have to put on with "the opening in the back?"  As I slipped it on, I noticed this liner on the front side and I thought, that it must make it a little heavier so "your parts that tend to enlarge when you get chilly" don't show though.  I was totally wrong.  When one of my nurses, Mike, came in, he asked me if I was chilly.  I told him, "I was freezing" and the next thing I knew he hooked up thing hair dryer looking thing and lifted my blanket to attach the hose to the slits in the front of the gown.  DAMN!!!  It blows air into the gown like insulation and it's temperature controlled.  It was so COOL...I mean WARM!!!!

Bottom line (pardon the pun), my test was fine.  The doctor did find a growth but assured me its' nothing to worry about.  He will consult with a surgeon and they will get back to me in a few weeks at which point I will return for surgery for them to remove it.

Yep.   They told me to avoid greasy foods.  I did.   Whopper's are char-broiled, you know.  I didn't get fries.  I did get the onion rings and the dipping sauce though.  It sure feels good in there now...:)

I'm glad it went well for you. I swore years ago I'd never have another and I still haven't. Due to adhesions from surgery, it was so painful I was screaming! It was as though they had given me nothing. This time the doctor wants me to go to a hosital to get knocked out to have it done. It's the only possible way I'd do it again, but I'm not crazy about getting put out now. What a pain in the ....

Yeah~! you passed the test and now you are passing gas...LOL.. Glad it's over for you and so glad you are full.. I have had to go once to get one of those and it's not too bad.. One is just very hungry... But it's a good thing to do as you don't want colon cancer.
Have a tiggeriffic Day~!~! ta ta for now from Iowa...

Where can one buy that dryer thingy? I think I would like to have one!

Happy your test went well. You can always say you didn't know about the greasy food rule until after you ate the onion rings. Just a thought...

Gasp! You broke the rules! Oh my.
Glad it's over with. And that you didn't get as sick as I did from the laxatives. Sorry you have to go back though - hopefully it'll go smoothly as well.
I have a nice stack of magazines waiting for you :-)

I haven't sipped my coffee yet, and apparently my eyes aren't quite awake yet, but I was reading thru the comments above and saw varunner's and thought she said she had "a nice stick of margarine waiting for you". Now that wouldn't be greasy at all! Ha!

Glad you were able to eat again!!! I hope the rest of the stuff goes just fine too. :)

Glad you are over it - hope they get the piece out and all is well.

Heated blankets - you go girl! I have never seen that.

Love,

You did good girl! Better than I would I'm sure! There are a few things that I just don't understand about the procedure. One is some people have to drink that drink and others get pills that they take. I'd rather take the pills if I have to do it. Then I've heard that while they are there they go ahead and remove anything that they find that needs to be removed but then I've heard others like yourself say that you have to go back. I just don't understand it all.

Glad that you made it through the worst part! Hope all goes well when you have to go back!

Have a Great Day!
Angela
