I had the colonoscopy yesterday - what an experience.
First, I could only drink 2/3 to 3/4 the bottle. I threw up about 10 oz of it too. I was so upset that he wouldn't be able to go forward with it however he said as long as I was not passing solids, he could do it. (THANK YOU!)
The nurses - ugh. I am beyond afraid of the IV and it took them THREE times to get it. They blew a vein in each hand and then finally put the IV in my arm. They knew how scared I was and of course, couldn't get it the first time. I have horrible bruising on my hand - looks just terrible!
I don't remember anything other than them telling me to turn on my side as well as when they started the procedure I said "Oh, you're starting?" and I recall the doctor saying yes and to just relax. The rest of the day is a blur...
The doctor said he did a few biopsy's and would get the results to me however he wrote on the sheet "normal". I am hoping this is the case!!
PS -Thankfully, I only had to stop once to go to the restroom. I had to run into the hospital to go lol but I made it in the car!!
Next I have a pelvic MRI and mamogram (found cyst on uterus and breast lump). That is on tuesday and friday I have gall bladder surgery... the fun never ends!
