The Adventure of the Nasty Polyps

For those of you how prayed for me, it worked! THANK YOU!! I DON'T have polyps in my rear end! YAY! BUT!!!

What a nightmare it was, not the actual procedure, but the day before. According to doctor’s instructions, this is how Sunday went:

On Sunday, I took 3 tiny pills at 8 AM on the dot. These pics show what I ate. I find it strange, that I hadn’t had a really good appetite for a few months before, but on Sunday I started getting hungry. I suppose because I knew I couldn’t have human FOOD!

4 liters of terrible tasting liquid! UGGY!!

Jello, two boullion cubes, tiny bit of apple juice.

YUMMY :o( Bouillon cube in hot water

It wasn’t that bad, and I was able to handle it quite well, but the plastic bottle you see below, with 4 liters of some liquid gunk, was a NIGHTMARE! I was to start drinking the liquid at 5 PM, and have it ALL finished by 8 PM!! 4 liters in THREE hours? Are they crazy?! It was impossible for me to finish the whole thing, and although there was a little packed of some flavor I was to add, it tasted HORRIBLE! Every time I walked, my stomach swished around like crazy. I could actually feel it, and hear it. I thought for a moment if I hadn’t swallowed my little Nemo and his fishbowl! :o)

I couldn’t imagine why I had to drink this stuff so late in the night, but I soon found out why! Don’t ask why! :o) I have a pet peeve about the timing. Why don’t they have you start drinking that stuff earlier, so you can sleep!!

It was impossible for me to sleep that night. My boss picked me up and had me at that place by 7 AM, where I had to fill out a BUNCH of papers. It was hard to do this, because I was half asleep. Then my name was called, and the lady led me to this little compartment, and had me put on this cloth with the back opened. They then gave me oxygen, and pushed this GIANT needle through the vein on my upper hand, and then they wheeled me into THE room! It was kind of funny, because as they wheeled me to THE room, I saw lots of other people being wheeled into rooms, also.

I remember asking some guy why the lights were so bright, and if they could dim them a little. He was about to answer me, when I blinked, and when I opened my eyes, I was back in the little compartment where my clothes were!! It was over! I do recall giving out a loud painful grunt while I was under. They then put me in a wheel chair, and took me to the front door where my boss was waiting with his car.

When I got home, I hugged Grandpa and all my little babies. My boss stayed a little while, and we all chit chatted a little, until I started feeling these agonizing cramps in my stomach. They led me to the sofa in my computer room and laid me on the sofa, and I fell asleep. I didn’t wake up until Tues. morning!!

I’m feeling great, but will be put under again, when my other doctor removes the polops that are on or in my uterus, and check out in the lower right side of my abdomen. Then I’ll have to wait to see if there’s a problem. I won't say anything about it here, until it's been done, and I have the results.

I am glad the tests came up negative. Makes the horrible lead up worthwhile knowing that your health is still intact.

Thank you! I'm so glad, too. So far so good, now the next step is removing the polyp in my uterus, so one more time of being wheeled into some dungeon! I wonder if those doctors are dragons or vampires in disguise! :o)

I love you :D

Much to the distress of many, so far, I'm gonna live! YAAAYY!

I L-O-V-E you, too!

Been thinking about you. Glad things are OK. When I had mine done, I drank a small container of liquid with a few 12 oz water chasers...not too bad. My wife had the big container like you. It was going thru her so fast...she just sat on the WC while she finished drinking it. All in all, not a bad experience. The best part was sitting in the recovery area passing gas with all the other guys. Nuff said!!!!
Soooo glad you're doing better.
Peace & Love

Thank you for having me in your thoughts!

So, you drank a few 12 oz water chaser, and they have your wife and me drink FOUR liters of liquid? This is not FAIR!! Do these doctors have something against us women or what?!

So THAT was the best part, huh? haaaaaaaaaaaaa So!! Funny!!

Again, thank you Amor!!

I went through all of that when I was about 26. Hope you had the same results. That is 'no worries'.

Take it easy if you can for a day or two.
Oct. 22nd, 2008 09:00 pm (UTC)
So, you had it done also! I think the worst part of it all was the unknown, huh?

The most painful part of it all were the agonizing cramps afterwards. How long after did you find you had a normal appetite? I thought I'd be eating a cow by now, but all I can handle is coffee and the bouillon cubes.

I'll be taking it easy for the rest of this week, thanks to a very compassionate boss, and to very dear and wonderful girl friends. I'm so glad every thing turned out well for you!

Cuidate, y que Dios te bendiga. Quizas todo sale bien ultimamente. Con todo carino y bendiciones al salud.

Muchísimas Gracias amigito lindo por tus bendiciones. Te lo agradezco mucho!

I'm glad you got through that. Drinking that bottle if stuff is awful. Some doctors insist on doing it that way. Mine lets me drink the two little bottles of concentrate which is so much easier to do.

Hope the rest of thje procedure(s) go well.

Oct. 23rd, 2008 12:22 am (UTC)
I'm so glad it's over, too!

Someone else said the same about taking the two little bottles, unlike his wife who was prescribed the two liters like I was. Now I'm sure that doctors like you guys more than we gals!

I hope the other part comes and goes fast, also!

Thank you so much!
Big hugs!
Oct. 22nd, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
Hope it goes well, my dear

Oct. 23rd, 2008 12:18 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Did you get "it" in snail mail?

I'm so glad your butt is ok. this post makes me wish I could do something to give you a little comfort after all that. like, you could just rest and I'd bring you bullion cubes lol
seriously, I'm glad you dont have to worry about that anymore. no more than you I suppose!

Oct. 23rd, 2008 02:46 am (UTC)
Thank you Sweet Pie! I'm amazed that after all the apparent abuse my butt went through, it's feeling normal! :o)

The Adventure of the Nasty Polyps
I knew you would get thru it OK. I was pulling for you. Yep it is all in the prep.

One time I had one of these procedures I do remember seeing my innards on a tv screen, but only for a few seconds and then I was gone again.

Re: The Adventure of the Nasty Polyps
Now that you mention it, there was a TV in THE room, but I never got to see my insides. It's funny how I waited for a reply to my question, and when I merely blinked, I was gone!

I wonder if doctors who do this awful procedure ever have butt nightmares!! heeeeeeeeeee
Oct. 23rd, 2008 01:36 am (UTC)
Seeee I told you, all went well and no real pain other than the cramps.

SO happy all went well for you... Still praying though for the next procedure.
Oct. 23rd, 2008 02:51 am (UTC)
You sure did! And again you prayers were answered!

I'll NEVER forget those agonizing cramps that made it imposible to even gasp or cry!
Thank you daddy!
Oct. 23rd, 2008 03:01 am (UTC)
*all the best and peace and love sent*
Oct. 23rd, 2008 08:49 pm (UTC)
And the very same to you!
Oct. 23rd, 2008 04:55 am (UTC)
Aren't colonoscopies fun? Yay for having to drink a gallon of laxative; a pity you didn't mention the procedure sooner, or else I could have given you some advice (like buying the expensive but oh-so-worth-it damp toilet paper).

Next time, see if they'll let you use Crystal Light with the laxative.
Oct. 23rd, 2008 08:50 pm (UTC)
Now you tell me!!
Where were you?! I DID mention it before.

Next time? N-E-V-E-R again!

glad it went well, dear. good luck w/ the rest.
Oct. 30th, 2008 04:05 am (UTC)
Thank you so much. Today was the day for the other part. I'll write about it in a new post.
Oct. 25th, 2008 05:58 am (UTC)
Veras que todo saldra bien, no te preocupes que yo se que todo saldra bien.
