Hi Everyone!

Please wish me luck tomorrow - I have my colonoscopy. Depending on what the biopsy results are, depends on whether or not I need to be admitted to hospital for prednisone treatment....

Please send good luck vibes my way!

Thanks!

Hi Guys.....

Well, it is over and done with, thank God.....

I really didn't feel too much during the procedure because he gave me Demerol and Valium, so I felt REAL GOOD!!!

The prep stuff was horrid, of course.... The last thing a person with chronic diarrhea needs to take is Citro-Mag and Kleen Prep!!!

He said afterwards that he removed several polyps and took about 16 biopsies from top to bottom, and that they have been sent to the lab for testing.... he said we should hear back by Monday.....

Keep your fingers crossed for me!
