...the month of self-inflicted mental torture (since my consultation)
...the clear liquid diet
...the (bowel) prep
...the colonoscopy procedure
My lovely doctor said that I have a "very clean colon" :-)
For those of you who know that I am the biggest chicken on earth when it comes to doctors and are asking if I would be hesitant about doing this again -- the answer is "no". The worst part is the bowel prep. But, my thoughtful husband hooked up his laptop in the bathroom for me so that I could watch "on demand" episodes of Seinfeld...and...My Blue Heaven (one of my favorite movies to watch when I need a bit of cheering up). I watched 4 episodes of Seinfeld and My Blue Heaven -- twice -- and finished the prep at 1:30 this morning. I had 4 hours of sleep, then had to be up by 5:30 to shower, etc.. and then off to the "colon spa".
I just ate my first solid food in 2 days and now I think it's time for me to take a nap. :-)
