I am scheduled for my first colonoscopy on Tues, and as I said in my prior posts, I am very nervous. Well, now I'm even MORE worried if that's possible. My neighbor had a colonoscopy on Friday, and they punctured a hole in her colon during the procedure! They weren't even removing a polyp or anything. They just told her husband that there are "bends" in your colon, so sometimes the scope gous right thru the colon wall instead of bending. She ended up needing emergency major surgery to repair the hole, and had a breathing and feeding tubes in her over the weekend. She's doing a little better now, but she'll be in the hospital for at least a week. After I heard that (they didn't know I was going in myself on Tuesday) I am debating on whether I should cancel or not.
My husband seems like he thinks I should cancel too. I really need some positive thoughts to calm my nerves.
