 Hi everyone. As you know I had the dreaded colonoscopy last Thursday.... I told you about the results etc.. but I didn't tell you about the funny thing that happened afterwards.
Of course they tell you to "pass air" if you need to after your test.... So I was tooting like a trooper( it was a real symphony in there) . I let it rip about 7 times...big long , loud winded ones...and thought for sure that I'd left a " souvenir" on the bed matt.... I was so excited when I got up and it was clean.... thought to myself " d.... I'm good! So when I got home ,my oldest daughter was visiting with my youngest so I decided to go for a visit too. I got there , took my flip flops off and said hello to everyone.... the baby was on the floor so I bent over to pick her up . BIG MISTAKE. I tooted ! Big deal I thought, I'm good , everything's cool! NOT! I was wearing white pants and apparently it was more of a poop than a toot! My daughter has white carpets....so the two of them are yelling... MOM! you're DRIPPING... GET OFF THE WHITE CARPET!!!... so I was there a total of 2 seconds. Wrapped my sweater around my waist and high tailed it out of there, with said tail between my legs.... headed down the corridor PRAYING no one would be on the elevator... just as I thought the coast was clear ... I hear " hold it please" .. (I thought to myself 'Lady if I could hold it.. I'd still be visiting with my baby grandaughter!) Made it home and called my girls after I got myself cleaned up.... I could still hear them "howling"!!!!
Just goes to show... never leave home without wearing panty hose... keeps you from leaving a trail when your "tail" is compromised!!!
"TOOT mary toot! not POOP mary poop!

Mary,
That was too funny, of all days to be surrounded by white, much easier if everything had of been brown. I think you are brave to wear white pants, I have a light grey pair that I always feel traumatised wearing, but they are so comfortable.
Great story. Jo

Oh, Marie-Claire, where would we be if we couldn't maintain our sense of humor - eventually - when things like this happen? Thank you so much for sharing, not just your experience, but your ability to laugh about it -now. God bless you!

You definately must have a sense of humour if you have Crohns! No "White" for me though! I hate the Leaking problem!!! Especially when I'm stuck at work and I can't just run home!
MARIE-CLAIRE.....I think we live in the same city, so I am always interested in reading your posts! I went for a colonoscopy on Tuesday, July 15 @ Vic General, but I never seem to have gas afterwards! I was wondering if Dr. Petrunia was your gastronologist?
I am a 41 year old female...  I was diagnosed with Crohns in 2002 after a year of pain and losing 50 pounds....which was the best part, now if only I could lose 20 more!
I have been on Prednisone, Pentasa, Imuran and I have been taking HUMIRA for over a year now ......and the good news is that it is now approved for use in CANADA for Crohns.
Humira did take away my pain.....but it is not working as well as it used to.  Crohns is never ending and so is the search for the right medication!
 Remember to Live, laugh & Love....

No , My gastroenterologist is Dr. James Piercy.... I had my colonoscopy at the Royal Jubilee Hospital ...which is about a 20 minute drive or so from the peninsula. I live near the ferry...I can't imagine having a colonoscopy without gas... My GI just pumps it in there to get a better view... then all of us lie in our gurneys after our procedures and toot till the cows come home!LOL.
That's interesting that there are GIs at the Vic. I thought most of the enterologists were at the Jube. I may ask for a referral and second opion after this last colonoscopy because this GI swears he saw no evidence of CD . I was diagnosed many years ago in Northern Ontario by a very good GI there. I went through all the tests include the SBFT where they were able to diagnose the CD. This GI hasn't done a SB series yet...so I'm wondering how he can definately say I don't have CD...especially since he hasn't found the source of the bleeding. How was your colonoscopy? was it very painful. Mine was excrutiating, as was my first one. Were you conscious, or semi - with it.. or completely under. I received some sedation, but the minimum apparently. I cried through the whole experience.. Then I came home, and except for my little accident...didn't poop for 5 days!
OH! I'm glad you found me raspberry.... Check my profile...my email address is on there... I would love for you to email me...maybe we can get together or give each other a call from time to time.If you'd rather not... that's perfectly ok too.
Also How do you like your GI?
Anxious to hear from you.

And Mathew... I normally don't EVER wear white... but these pants were on sale... couldn't pass it up. and besides.... after tooting so many times at the hospital... ( I'm sure the local yocals thought the ferry was pulling out) and not dirtying the draw sheet ... I thought I was fine... Let it go to my head.... and the other end paid for it!!!

Hi I think the scope only looks at the large intestine but it is great if you at least have no problems there. We got to feel blessed with every little good we can find. Sounds like you really blew your horn. Hope your feeling great by now .I got a pair of white pants too and still no stains on them yet .lol gail

I've always had good experiences with my colonoscopies......I think I even enjoy them! lol! I've never had gas cramps afterwards or any pain during the procedure. I love my gastronologist.....he is very gentle and spends lots of time talking to me in his office during appointments...I would definately recommend him if you need another opinion. I was only slightly drugged for my colonoscopy last week, so I watched it on the screen.....then I was hoping that the drugs would kick in more & I could have a good sleep, however that didn't happen & I was still wide awake!! Do you still have Crohn's syptoms even if your GI can't see any sign of Crohns?? Maybe your Crohn's is in a different area?? My Crohn's seem's to be everywhere.....my throat to my ankles....and everywhere inbetween!! I am off work right now until I can get things under better control. I was just barely existing, & not living! It's time to take care of myself!! I also suffer with anxiety & depression.....
That would be nice to get together sometime or call each other!!!!
