Colonoscopy!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So, today, after my therapy session, and my errand running trip to Wal-Mart...I have to began the dreaded prep for a colonoscopy! Now, being 33 years old, I do not feel that I should be subjected to having a camera shoved up my bottom, but that being said...why oh why did i order extra jalapeno's on my nacho's last night???? A few women I work with said the procedure isn't so bad, if I can get through the prep I will be fine...but I have terrible bowel issues (if I have a movement once every two weeks it is an occasion to celebrate......which is probably why this procedure was ordered!!) so I can only imagine what is going to come out of me today...and to make matters worse...my dog has an obsession of laying down in the bathroom when you poop....I mean really..I am just getting over the chocolate cake incident, and now to have to drink a gallon of lemon scented washer fluid so i can clear out a system that has needed clearing for well over 10 years now only to be tortured by jalapenos and the dog.....please think of me today.....and thank you for reading my vent!

Well, definitely good luck on the colonoscopy! I don't really know what to say other than I thought you did a really good job writing post! Are you a writer? It seems you have a talent to make some serious stuff sound quite funny! I liked you saying about your dog in the bathroom with you lol. You should be a comedian! Anyways, I hope all goes well!

It's true - the prep is way worse than the procedure Good luck to you tomorrow and let us know how you're doing.

ps

Did you ever try to close the door so the dog can't get in? That would annoy me. Mine used to sit outside the door and whine. Annoying, but not so bad as having the thing stare at me in wonderment!

I hope everything goes well for you. I had to laugh about the dog. I have one who likes to do that to. At least it's a dog and not a youngun standing out side the door pounding and asking why your in there so much today.

I had a colonoscopy a year ago, the prep was the worst and spending so much time in the bathroom. I felt like I should sleep on the toilet. The procedure itself was a piece of cake. I was on the table and the nurse said she was going to inject demerol (I think that was it) and it would make me feel a little dizzy. I said "wow, yes it does make me feel dizzy" and I was out like a light. :)

I drank almost all the drink....when i started coming out clear, i called the help line and begged them to tell me i could stop! They said i could.....so probably a few more trips to the bathroom and i am done......well, all except the part where i am starving and won't be able to consume food until tomorrow afternoon :( During this process i have developed a hemorrhoid, which i promptly named Hamlet after the dog! Thank you all for your well wishes, and as for closing the door....i would rather be watched by a dog then poop on the floor :)

I have SO MUCH sympathy for you!!! I actually spent yesterday in a similar state (I can blame you now, sympathy poo) and I wish I had seen this post yesterday, I would have told you to get some ointment for your butt. There was a funny story someone linked to once where the guy describes his colonoscopy prep and says 'his bowels traveled to the future and pooped out food he hadn't even eaten yet'. Kinda feels that way, don't it?
