Lister

Ugh Displaced Mind

Recommended Posts

I don't think it will affect much... except you maybe being more relaxed....but I'd just mention it in passing to the Dr. if you're concerned... don't make a big deal its not great on your records...

Exactly. Just be sure the person giving you the anesthesia knows. Just make it a passing comment, like, "If I smoked something illegal, would it affect this?" That way you're not telling them you did, and you can find out if it matters.

ooooooohhhhhhhhh that kinda smokin....I don't think that would effect the drugs they will administer to you for your procedure. But I'm not a doctor, maybe you should ask just in case...I mean there going where no man has gone before so whats the humility behind a little bud? My guess is that it wouldn't interfere. Good Luck tommorrow..... ~b r e a t h e~

so i got the enemas at the store 2 fleet saline ones.. on the box it says not to have more then 1 in 24 hours but the doc office told me to do 2 and they even told me to take 1 and while thats in me take the second...... wtf am i really supposed to do?? i dont wanna hurt myself doing something i was not supposed to do

also the directions say to take a laxative tonight it says to take one thats like ex-lax or milk of magnesia.... what is gluten free? i got to have it in 2 hours and i cant figure it out- also the enemas i got say they are 70% extra volume then the normal so im really not sure if i should take 2

Again, DO EXACTLY WHAT YOUR DOCTOR TOLD YOU TO DO!!! You have to take two because you're not trying to go after being constipated, you're making your colon squeaky clean and photo-ready.

so i went out and got the ex-lax all i could find was extra strengh unless i wanted chocolate form. so i got the extra strengh. should i just do half a dose or still a full dose? also im confused they said to take the laxative before bed, but on the box it says it takes 8-12 hours for the laxitive to start working.... im going to be on the table getting the scope when the laxative will start to work so whats the point??

mmmm jellloooo soo gooood mmmm blue

I'm sorry but I don't remember. I was sent home with specific instructions, didn't the doctor give you a list of things to do?

yeah but the list is general. it says take the laxative before bed, take enema 1 hour before apointment. so my apointment is at 7:30 so i have enema at 6:30 but im not going to bed until probably midnight... should i take the laxative now? or at midnight? and should i do a full dosage or half since i could only find extra strength?

I would take it now if it takes 8 hours or so to kick in. As far as the dosage I would do exactly what the box says extra strength or not, the ending result of a laxative is the same whatever way you look at it, to clean you out. For what your going in for I'd say the more "cleaning" the better.

Hey Lister,

Just read through the last 18 pages! I hope that your proceedure goes well. We're all rooting for you! I know I psyched myself up before mine, but it wasn't so bad. I don't remmber any pain afterward, just being a bit groggy for the rest of the day, and a tiny bit tummy sick. You'll be fine though, I'm sure.

As a former oregonian, I was curious to know where you're at. I grew up in NW Portland/Beaverton. It's a nice area. And as it has been said before, there are lots of places you can get help (financial, food, etc). You just gotta go look and not be afraid. All it will do is help you :)

Anyway, I have experienced a lot of the fears and anxiety you have expressed. If you ever feel like you need to talk to someone, feel free to pm me. I was diagnosed with depression about 10 years ago, and I know what its like to work yourself up into a panic over things. The night before I got my wisdom teeth pulled I just about tore my house apart and scared the hell out of my husband. I know everyone here has said it, but it really is so much controlled in your head. You can have an illness, and live with it, deal with pain, and keep anxiety under control. Just remember that you have the power, and being sick, or scared, or whatever...shouldn't keep you from living your life, and making the most out of it.

Well, I'm off to bed, hope you are resting well. You're in my prayers. Good luck!!

well time to go dun dun dun

I am sure everything will go well. I know you will keep us posted. Don't be surprized if they can't tell you much right away as sometimes they have to take some time to look at any biopsies they may want to do. I should note when I say biopsies I am not talking about cancer here but things like microscopic colitis. Good luck, it will be over soon.

well im back and that really sucked...

first the nurses where confused about what procedure they where doing so i guess they had me over prep, and then they could not get a vain to show up in my arm so while they where trying to get the iv in the doc came in and said it was not nessasary.. so i had it done with no pain killers or sedatives.... very uncomfterbal. So now im home.. they did not find anything, he took some biopsies but he does not think anything will show... and my lower abdomen like right behind the crotch is in throbbing gas pain, like i can hear and feel the gas but i cant get it to come out, i tried to use the restroom and all that came out was a snot like substance coverd in blood.... man what now

___

he took 6 biopsies and alot of pictures, but the nurse did not have the eq hooked up proporly so they lost all the pictures.... man im in alot of pain right now i thought this was not supposed to hurt afterwards.....

I can't remember, Lister, and I'm not going through this whole thread :blink: Are you doing better on the gluten-free diet? If so, you may be like some of us here who have a gluten intolerance, but not celiac disease. My gluten intolerance was rather serious, and I have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, but I technically do not have celiac disease.

Mine didn't hurt afterward. Did you have both a colonoscopy and and endoscopy?

Wow, I'm sorry. It sounds like no one knew what they were doing, how scary. They didn't give you anything to relax you at least? Thats really odd. Hopefully your biopsies will help. Rest up and feel better, Julie

oh i forgot to add in that the nurse doing the iv first try went thru the vain and ended upmaking my arm all cold and hot flashy it was fun.. but o well i got bad luck sometimes.

other then the gas pains from the procedure now im feeling pretty good like alot more (normal) then i normaly do. i think one of the problems with me may have been something lodged in me and the enemas got it out i could be wrong though but i dont know i feel way diffirent

The enema could have helped. Keep that in mind next time you're clogged up!! It could also be that your stress is lower .... you've been worried about this test for a while!
