It’s Colonoscopy Day!

Posted by msdon9 on March 19, 2012

Hey, if you’re one of the small parts of the population that doesn’t know what a colonoscopy is, read more about it here. For healthy people, it’s typically a procedure done for a cancer screening. For those of us with digestive diseases, it’s kind of like an annual or bi-annual “benchmark” to see how things are going.

Unfortunately I’m overdue for this one today. The last one I had was in 2009 and it was only an “attempt” rather than a completion because I had such a tight stricture that the doctor couldn’t proceed with his scope without fear of puncturing me, which would have led to a whole host of other troubles… The CAT scan I had a few weeks back tells us that the stricture is still there, and it’s pretty tight. One of the doctors on my Gastro team prepared me for the possibility that it may also be a no-go for today, but we’re hoping for the best!

The prep I did for today was the easiest one I’ve ever had to do… I’m just hoping that it worked as well as it is supposed to!

Hopefully I’ll be able to update this later with some “good-ish” news!!
