Re: but I look horrible in orange...

As everyone here already knows, the first round of exams is the worst because as you meet with each doctor, they want to have a feel for themselves. My husband saw the size of my radiation onc's hands and was very glad that he wasn't a proctologist. Instead, he just asked if the doc would "sign...

Dumb Jokes that Made me Laugh

I came across a couple of dumb jokes while surfing the old net and they made me laugh, so I thought I'd share. There were three women walking along a sidewalk. There was 1 blonde, 1 brunette, and 1 redhead. An apple dropped out of nowhere and hit the redhead on the head. She said, "OWW!" A...

Re: Deer Be Damned!

Using your clothes for scent is a great idea. I'm sure your neighbors are much happier than if you used mountain lion piss or eau de skunk!

Re: Moviprep - colonoscopy prep

Osmoprep all the way for me. I couldn't tolerate the fleet because the taste of it literally made me throw up. It's a lot of horse pills to take, but ultimately osmoprep was the best solution for me. Plus it forces you to drink a lot of water so you don't become entirely dehydrated. Definitely have ...

Re: Radiologist and oncologist visits

I was lucky and radiation wasn't too bad for me. I ran out of the protective cream in the last week and thought, well, I've been fine so far. I dont' know that a week without the cream is going to make too much of a difference. Boy was I wrong!!! Use the cream religiously! I got the equivalent of a ...

Re: Barium cocktails...what summer nights are made of....

They're the worst!!! My tech laughed at me drinking the smoothie because I pinched my nose with one hand and chugged it down as fast as I could. It's still downright horrible, but you don't taste it as much that way. Good luck to the both of you on the scans. We'll be waiting here with you for good ...

Re: Most Embarassing Moments?

Helen, that is impressive. I'm with Ivona - it took me about a week. I told my husband about my post and he said that he would have guessed a different moment which I guess I should share since it had me laughing so hard last night I cried. Around day 4 or 5 of my 1st resection, I was allowed to eat...

Re: Doctors giving patients cancer diagnosis

My GI didn't tell me I had cancer after my colonoscopy. He made my husband tell me! Then not knowing the kind of person I am, he decided that it would be a good idea to tell me the cycle of emotions that I would go through. My husband just turned to him and said "do you mind NOT going through t...

Most Embarassing Moments?

OK, I'll start off... The quickest way to getting over any pride/shyness is a hospital stay following a surgery. When you are relying on bedpans and the nurses to clean you up, you soon stop caring if your nurse is male or female. I spent the 1st Thanksgiving away from my family and my 1st wedding a...
