Re: Colonoscopy prep question

I've always used the prescription prep that was ordered. I'm sorry you're cramping badly!*hugs* If your colonoscopy is in the afternoon on Tuesday you could call your doctor's office to ask if you could use Gatorade and Miralax. Of course that's only if you don't start your prep until the afternoon....

Re: To share my “ghost” story

I am one of the "ghosts" who only checks in every so often. I try to check in at least once a week on weekends. Sometimes more often if I am dealing with something concerning. I have been NED since my colon resection in 2014. I had rectal bleeding and horrible abdominal pain at the end of ...

Re: Flexible Sigmoidoscopy Scheduled for end of month, and I fear I might have colon cancer

I'm sorry you're going through this!*hugs* I agree with everyone else that you should push for a colonoscopy which checks you entire colon not just a sigmoidoscopy. A sigmoidoscopy only checks your sigmoid and rectum but not the rest of your colon. Good luck and hope you get answers soon!*hugs*

Re: Another disappointing ER visit and frustrations!

Thanks everyone!*hugs* Contacting the directly won't help. Whenever I contact their office they just say to go to the ER or the after hours clinic. All specialists are like that here. I can't travel to another hospital because it's 30 minutes away and I don't drive. The surgeon was going to give me ...

Re: Another disappointing ER visit and frustrations!

There is only one hospital in my city. I went to the ER there. All testing is done there. If I ever need chemo it would be done there as well.

I'm sorry you're going through this!*hugs* Yes, the GI should allow you to do a different prep. I hope you won't have to wait long to have your colonoscopy. Good luck!*hugs*

Re: Another disappointing ER visit and frustrations!

I'm in Atlantic Canada where there is a doctor shortage. I don't have an oncologist because I was stage 2 and didn't have chemo. I was referred back to my family doctor. Everything is slow here. Thanks WarriorSpouse. I will go back if I get bleeding again. I will keep you updated. :)
