Well, it went very well. Bob took me in, I got there about 7:30am. And we got back to my house at 10:30am and he had stopped and got me some breakfast afterwards. I'm allergic to some of the stuff they give you for sedation, so they used a lot of benadryl and something else in the IV they put in my arm. I was wheeled into the procedure room, the doctor came and and talked to me about my medication allergies, administered the drug thru the IV in my arm. I got sort of wuzzy and the next thing I knew I was back in my cubicle and the nurse was asking me if I'd like something to drink. I drank some 7-Up, then dozed off a little more and she was there again to help me sit up and swing my legs over the side of the gurney. Once a little dizziness went away, she left me to get dressed. Then they came and got me and walked me out to the waiting room where Bob was waiting. I now believe what everone says...the prep is the absolute worst part of the whole thing. Because you are not aware of the procedure at all. I was very blessed to be totally free of polyps so I have nothing to do but go back in 5 years for another one.
I am still sort of rummy, can't drive,operated heavy machinery, sky dive or anything like that for 12 hours so I'm going to go back to bed and take a little snooze. I'm sure Gabi will be in her glory to have me back in bed.
Until next time....Linda
P.S. If I can do it, you can do it......schedule a colonscopy today if you are due for one or have any symptoms. Like this doctor said...there is no need for anyone to have colon cancer with the modern tests available to all of us today.
