Welcome to the gastroenterology community! Well, I think having had colonoscopies before can help with your nerves. You probably agree that the prep is the worst part. Just take it easy, drink that nasty thing up, and remember that this will all be over soon. And, the diarrhea will help with your clean out!!
Thanks for the support.....I'm hanging in there....can't wait until its over
I've had three colonoscopies (2 in a 4 month period) and the prep is rough and no way around it... I always try to find a silver lining in any bad situation (it's a joke in our family). So here goes... weight loss. I was always good for 2-3 lb loss prepping for the test. My thoughts will be with ya!
I would do the prep 10 times over then get a colonoscopy again!! SO PAINFUL!! Damn Dr just shoving in the hose without a care in the world.. I was not under at all, they must have had a bad batch of stuff they gave me Im asking for propofol if I have to do it again thats the way to go!!
I'm in the same situation! A little nervous also and having my third. My last was 2 1/2 years ago. Not feeling well from not eating right now. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow after the procedure! Hang in there; this will soon be a memory!
