I hope the delay in a follow up post is due to a negative result and the OP is enjoying margaritas instead of worrying about cancer.
Sorry for the delay. We just got home from our daughter's preschool graduation. The colonoscopy went good! So glad I chose the Propofol approach. I think I was the only one that did it while the other's were still sleeping from their conscious sedation.
So good news, but still not out of the woods, just yet. GI Dr. found a 55mm polyp and sent it out for testing. The Dr. reassured me that he thinks I will be fine as in he didn't think it was malignant. I also have internal hemmy's and I can get them banded, has anyone done that? Overall, the prep was awful and I didn't get a wink of sleep, maybe 35 min. Colonoscopy was a breeze. I walked out quick, my dad drove me home and I enjoyed a nice lobster sandwich, steak fries, and 3 shirley temple's for lunch, I ate everything which I never do! I was hungry!
I appreciate all of your support with my prep, and colonoscopy. I will post once I hear the final report. Now, it's time to take care of my mama bear. I wish her rectal pain from the radiation treatment will get better. Her last tx was on the 16th and she mentioned that the past two days were by far the worst pain she has experienced. I have suggested sitz bat but she refuses. Okay, have a good weekend guys. XX
