Tired But Pleased After My Tests

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Yesterday, I had my endoscopy and colonoscopy. For the first time since 1998, my stomach appeared normal. By this I mean that the red streaks and erosions are finally gone! I only had one polyp removed during the colonoscopy this time, which is also an improvement. I also didn't get sick from the anesthetic and my blood pressure was steady. This was an improvement from the fluctuating blood pressure that I had during my September surgery. Of course they used a different kind of anesthetic this time which was a short term anesthetic. I did wake up during the first procedure and opened my eyes. I groaned with pain and looked at the doctor and they put me right back under, thank goodness. I'm glad it is all finished. I'm thoroughly sick of being poked and prodded!

My progress, shown with these tests, proves a healthier lifestyle is working where I can't see it every day. There is more than one way to measure progress on my journey to health.
