colonoscopy tomorrow

Post by albertajune »

After having cancer surgery in 1991, I have a colonoscopy every 5yrs. My choice whether to have them when offered.
Tomorrow morning is the time. Today I can only drink clear fluids and in the morning nothing. Not a problem when I see all the people in Indonesia desperate for food. What I hate so much is having to drink 2 litres of Moviprep followed by a litre of other liquid this evening to clear me out. So hard to get down. Have to think that by tomorrow evening it will all be over for another 5yrs if I'm still here. :-D

Hope it went well, June. I had one about thirty years ago, most uncomfortable!

All was fine thanks Gwen. The worst bit was having to drink 1ltr of laxative followed by 1/2 litr water then the same 2hrs later. By the time it got to the last glass I was gagging. In at 9.30, sedated, out at 10.30. No hanging around.
Just have to get it all working properly now :oops:
