Colonoscopy Part 2:

Today I went in for a colonoscopy. I am sharing intimate details so that if any of you have to go in for this procedure, you can put unknowing fears at ease by seeing my process.   I had to get up at 4 a.m. (around the time I get up anyway so that wasn’t unbearable to me) to drink a 32 oz Power Zero sports drink with 8 oz of Miralax mix in.  Yesterday, I drank a 32 oz. Power Zero with 8 oz of Miralax in the afternoon. 

We went into the outpatient facility at 8 am to check in (my boyfriend drove me because you are not allowed to drive that day).  The nurses were really great, and comforting.  I spoke briefly with the doctor and then he said they would add the sedation…and off I went.  I have no memory of any part of it, but the results were good.  I do not have cancer or any polyps.  Yahhh.  I will meet with the doctor for a summary of the test so we can divise a plan of action. 

But all in all, the procedure was not a big deal.  If you have to have a colonoscopy, I can say, it’s okay.  Don’t get too worked up.  I did it and it was okay.
