Yes, I had to have another colonoscopy as it’s been five years since my last one. I decided to do the “prep” at a hotel cause I didn’t want to go through that in the RV with campers knocking on the door.
So I checked into the Ramada Inn in Alamosa on Tuesday as it was the cheapest motel/hotel in town….surprised me! I was loaded up with liquids….ginger ale, water, Gatorade, broth from wonton soup. I really had an easy time of it, which surprised me also. Took that first bottle of magnesium citrate at one and only spent 3-5 minutes in the restroom and then nothing for six hours. Another bottle of stuff at seven and that only produced water cleaning me out.
I credit my my new fruit and vegetable diet for the ease of the prep time. So much easier than the last time. I enjoyed watching the Olympics till midnight so I could have the last bit of liquids before midnight since I couldn’t have any more liquids till after the procedure on Wednesday morning.
The procedure went very well and I don’t remember any of it as they put you completely out now, not just giving you the “good memories” drug. I was out of outpatient surgery by 10:00. Results, no polyps…clear track. I’m a happy girl.
Jim took me to the Campus Inn for breakfast and it sure was good to eat something after basically fasting since dinner on Monday some 40 hours.
Have you had your colonoscopy lately? It’s important that you do.
Remember, you are loved.
