The Scoop on My 'Scopes

I promise I won't go into detail here...

Just an update for those who've been following along. I have survived my esophogealblahblahoscopy and colonoscopy. Anyone who's had one will tell you the prep is the killer. I just couldn't manage that stuff you had to drink and only got about half of it down. Fortunately it was enough. My doctor likes to sedate the patients so I got my happy shot and then woke up in the recovery room. That was easy! The results? Again, I won't go into detail but my ailments are fairly common: GERD, diverticulosis and mumble, mumble. What's that? You didn't catch that last part? Sorry, it won't be repeated. Other than the prep, I was very uncomfortable after the procedure for a few hours, but am feeling pretty good now. My plan for the future: NEVER HAVE ANOTHER COLONOSCOPY EVER AGAIN!

Thanks for those who sent comments or emails my way and this is hopefully the last medically related post from me for a looooooonnnnnggggg time! ;)

ColonWHATnow?

Ugh. Well, I'm glad it sounds like more garden variety ailments and not something really, really, REALLY horrible. Although, still...bleh. I'm not going to ask about the "mumble mumble". I'll just assume it has something to do with roses and pixie dust.

Sending up a good old fashioned Lithuanian "No More Colonoscopies" incantation for you. May that be your one and only.

But hey, I hear those things are really a lot of fun.

Ok, not. Glad the news was ok.

I am so glad that the procedure went well and that they didn't find anything too serious. That must be a relief. I too hope you never have to undergo one of those again!

Glad it is over. Glad it is nothing too serious. Joining Jozet in her incantation (though mine will have British, Irish and German undertones). Hope the "mumble-mumble" doesn't give you any more trouble.
