I had a colonoscopy on Wednesday - the procedure itself is no big deal, but the prep for is a real challenge. On Tuesday, I was given the bowel prep "Go Lightly" (rather poorly named, as it cleans out your colon & makes you go like crazy if it works) Since I had an NG tube placed & was unable to drink the solution - it was administered through my NG tube. After I was given less than half of the solution, it started to come back up on me. It was incredibly unpleasant & I will leave it at that.
On Wednesday, they decided another approach & I was given 2 enemas. I told my nurse that she could legitimately complain of having a real shitty day ha! The colonoscopy was fine, so any adhesions/blockage are located beyond the view of the scope. My surgeon had me penciled in for surgery today - in order to correct the hernia & reveal where the problem adhesions lie.
Wed evening - due to the NG tube, I developed a very sore throat - couldn't stop coughing & I sounded like a 2 pack day smoker/brandy guzzling old wheeze. By the end of the day, I was ready for a pity party/meltdown - - I was able to talk myself out of it XD
When my surgeon saw me on Thursday - I told him I was really nervous about having the surgery & he was more than happy to go along & we canceled the surgery that was planned for today. There is no rush on the hernia repair & we adopted a 'wait & see' approach.. so far so good.
