Made it through the prep for my colonoscopy. It was not very palatable, but I got it all down. the dietary restrictions took their toll on me. My blood sugars dropped and I didn't take any insulin. I took the prep this morning early and got a call from the endoscopy center asking me if I did my prep. They had a cancellation and wanted me to come in sooner. I got the procedure done almost 2 hours earlier than planned which was fine by me. Everything went well. The procedure was a breeze. All the staff was great. Very friendly and pleasant. My exam was normal. the doc did for some reason recommend I start taking some fiber supplements. I can't take anything with Metamucil in it as I am allergic to it. I guess IF I start doing that I'll go with the pills. The problem is I find them very constipating. Now I am clear for at least 10 years. I would definitely tell anyone age 50 to go for the colonoscopy. The prep is no fun, but the procedure is easy and it doesn't take long at all. Take good care of ourselves.
