The Dreaded Colonoscopy
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Today I'm taking it easy on my exercising because I'm still feeling a little odd after my procedure. Yes, as they say, the worst part is the prep the day before. The taste of the prep solution wasn't as bad as I was expecting. The effects, well, you know. But there again not as bad as expected. The procedure itself I don't even remember. They told me they were about to begin and the next thing I knew they told me they were all done. It's over! I've done it! No more dread. It took a couple of days because you can't really do much the afternoon and evening before and the 24 hours after, but it's worth it to have peace of mind. If you're over 50 and have been dreading it, just do it. It's not all that bad and it could save your life.
