OK------ to all those who may be freaking out about having this procedure - DONT
I was more anxious about this than anything else I have ever been anxious about, and boy, what a doddle! Between receiving my appointment by post, and the actual date of the colonoscopy, I was admitted into the hospital, yet another diverticulitis attack
I was told I would have it done whilst in the hospital - well, freak out time - I was quite happy to poop all day in my own bathroom, but not in a shared toilet on the ward. I had a good old cry, took the Picolax (vile) and waited. Result!
I was nervous wreck as I was wheeled into the room, was given the IV sedation which obviously worked instantly, and cannot recall a SINGLE thing about the whole event. I just remember being asked to scoot along back into my bed,when it was all over. I feel like the colonoscopy queen, bring it on!!!
