My husband had a few colonoscopies in his time, and yes, he did lose a bit of immediate weight, but once you start eating normally again, odds are you will see a slight rise to your weight - don't beat yourself up for it tho' because the loss wasn't one in the normal sense, and the gain is only to be expected.

I hope that the procedure went well and the outcome was good!

Yay you for getting checked! emoticon

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. Please don't let fear stop you - cover your butt!

I guess that's the immediate upside to a colonoscopy

glad you did this. It's unpleasant, but really necessary. Hope all is clear (no pun intended)

and I hope you see that 15 lb loss!

I had a colonoscopy yesterday so of course I had to eat light food all day afterward. I have to do that for a couple more days. And on Tuesday I only had clear liquids, and as you might imagine, I've lost weight. It's not the usual way, but it was required before the procedure.

Anyway, I'm now at a 14.8 pound loss. Hoping tomorrow that it will be a 15 which is halfway to goal for me.
