I had to finally get another scope yesterday. I had a horrible time with the prep and that has never happened in the many scopes before. I got extremely bloated and then had the nasty vomiting followed by dry heaves. I must say that tossing my cookies was a relief comapred to how I felt before.
Then I had to go back and drink the 2nd half of the jusg in the morning. It was really hard to gag more down.
This is the first time i ever had to take a stool softener during the prep....I think that may be what made me sick.
Well, the scope was late in the afternoon (tried to get an am appt, but didn't want to keep putting things off). Of course everything ran late and I ended up home after 5:30. My doc took my sedation emesis seriously when I told him---I toss
cookies (and cakes, and brownies and every other baked good
) after even the lightest sedation---and he gave me enough phenergan that I was not sick for the VERY first time ever! I was the most relaxed I have been in over a year.
He gave me some pics from the scope to take home.....result bah humbug I need to either start Imuran or Humira and there is no doubting it now. Still deciding which way to go, but he'll want an answer in my 4 week appt.
I HATE deciding without enough data to really know the RIGHT answer. Maybe I'll just flip a coin...
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
