Relief - nothing there

I was supposed to have my colonoscopy on 26th July, but decided to bring it forward by 2 weeks as I just needed to get it over and done with.  Yep, you read me right...I brought it forward.  I just couldn't bear to have to sit and think and worry about it any longer, so I made the call about 4 weeks ago to bring the date forward to 12th July.  Yep, that was a few weeks ago now, so I'm done with it!

I do have to say though, the day before the procedure, I was cursing myself for bringing it forward.  Anyone who has done this procedure will know exactly what I mean.  I hate the prep drink.  This time I took the 'fleet' route.  My GI doesn't recommend it, but I'm quite stubborn now about what I will and won't do, so I got my own way and didn't have to drink 3 litres of that other crappy stuff.

Anyway, long story short, I had a little incident with blood pressure...I told them not to let me get cold...blood pressure drop, heart starting racing...they got a little worried..I came to and wondered what all the fuss was about.

Done and dusted now, no more colonoscopies for another 2 years.

Results showed nothing major....just the scaring which needs to be watched.

So I've now been in remission for 6 months.....

I'm happy with that.  It was a long time coming....
