I had the colonoscopy this morning. A couple of polyps were found, and will be sent for biopsy. The doctor said they looked normal, so Iím not worried.
The procedure itself wasnít bad, thanks to the anesthesia. Man, I love that stuff. That was the best sleep Iíve had in a long time.
Yesterdayís preparation was the hard part. I donít know about you, but drinking a GALLON of liquid(s) mixed with that vile powder is not high on my list of fun things to do. The first 64 oz. went down okay, but it was very difficult for me to swallow the rest of that stuff. I started at 10:00 a.m., and finished at 8:00 p.m. Of course, I was in the bathroom all day and night.
I lost 6 pounds. Unfortunately, I'm sure those lost pounds will come home wagging their tails behind them in a day or two. Oh well. At least this experience is over with. Next up on the list is a bone density test. That should be a piece of cake, but Iím kind of sorry it doesnít require anesthesia. Heh.
