Colonoscopy all done!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Today was the big day. My mom went with me to be my driver and caretaker after. The prep was okay, having done this 5 years ago knew what to expect. Took it easy on Tuesday and had my clear liquids and Special Drink to enjoy. The actual procedure was fine, got to watch on the monitor which was very cool. There was a polp found which was shipped off and sent for tests. I should hear back in a week the results. Already as told to come back for another in 5 years. I had some nausea, just l like before, but they gave me something for it and then I was good.

Home with my mom and had an English muffin since I was getting hungry about then. Hubby picked me up after work and we went out to Wendys for a quick dinner and hit the Radio place to look at some radios. Feeling pretty good, even went for our normal walk when we got home.

Pretty warm out, so kicking back with the movie "Willow" and just relaxing. Have Thurs off work also, so will go out to breakfast with my mom and relax. three days off work! Heaven.
Has been just nice to relax and get some SLEEP!

And get this-my weight this morning was 184.6! Lost a lot due to fluid loss with the prep, but it was down. Figure it will go up a few pounds pretty quick, but was nice to see on the scale.

    It's always a relief to get the dreaded colonoscopy out of the way. You are the first other person I know of who says they actually watched it on the monitor -- everyone else tells me they are knocked out and can't believe that I wasn't --telling me I must've been dreaming seeing it on the monitor.

    3 days off? That is awesome! Enjoy your rest now that the colonoscopy is out of the way. Hope the report on the polyp is favorable.
