So I leave for the hour drive to Prince George Regional Hospital soon. Not looking forward to the procedures but its what has to be done. Kind of worried about the after effects. Just had a colonoscopy in October that resulted in a perferatted bowel. My bowels are worse than they were then :(. Well have to see how it goes i guess and if anything happens then im already at the hospital right :) ha ha nervous laugh. Mostly I am worried about waking up with a colectomy or colostomy. Not that they can do anything with out my permission right? Or consent form  or whatever right?

No they will not do any surgery while you are out. If they were to find something they would tell you afterwards and schedule whatever procedure after that.
