Just thought I would report in. I had my colonoscopy today. The dr.said, well, how should I put this...my colon was clean as a whistle (should be after that stuff I had to drink). Said I had hemmoroids, but he also said everyone has hemmoroids. I didn't know that. I guess that like everyone has ears. The only thing he said was that my colon has "increased motility". I think he means it just moves through faster than normal. All those of you who are going to have a colonoscopy, it's not bad at all. I don't remember a thing. The last thing I remember was cracking the nurses up about having "jalepeno hiney" and then I was out like a light. Don't remember a thing. They gave me a coke afterwards and I threw it up. I have reactions to anesthesia sometimes. Went home went to bed and slept all day. Piece of cake! The bad part of the whole thing is having to drink that stuff the night before (do not, I repeat do not mix it with Sprite...vile!) and be on the liquid diet.
He wants me to be part of an IBS study, but I think I will decline. I can pretty much control mine with diet and I have had horrible experiences with the "bowel drugs". Annie, just thought you would like to know...there was nothing to it! Wasn't even humiliating. They waited until I was out before they even looked at me.
