Colonoscopy Results

I have some good news! I am done with my procedures. The prep was crazy. I added the "Cherry" flavor which didn't help much. The solution tastes really salty to me.

I started drinking the solution as instructed, I did really well up to a little less than half finished. The bathroom was my best friend.  As some of you know once it starts working you don't walk to the bathroom, you run. After about the second run, I said screw this! I took my book, my jug, my glass and my straw and stayed on the toilet for 2-1/2 hours. As it went in it one way, it came right back out from the other end.

My appointment was at 9:30 am. They called me at 10 am, We were on our way home at 11:30. Thank you Jesus!!

There was a stricture around my esophagus so he dilated it.

My colonoscopy only showed diverticuli and a hernia I've been having. No polyps! Yippee! But other than that everything looked good!

Instructions were to resume my daily regimen the next day but couldn't eat solid food until today. I definitely can tell a difference when I swallow.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend. I get my Hubby ALL to myself for the next four days.

  3. What caused your stricture? I hate colonoscopy's and am past due to have mine...guess I needed this reminder. I camp out in bathroom too, it's easier.

    2. Sandy, if you read my previous post, I explain what causes the stricture. I have to do this procedure every several years. But it is very important to do so. I don't feel so alone knowing others camp out in the bathroom. THanks! LOL!.
