Well yesterday was the BIG day and I got through it fine! The doctor said I did really well and that everything looks pretty good on the inside. He said my colonoscopy looked perfectly healthy, but my stomach was slightly irritated (although, no ulcers or lesions), and it's J-shaped, which might contribute to my gastroparesis. They took some biopsies and I'll have the results in about a week.
I found out what was up with the piercings (and I could have left them in, the nurse was just being a poop-head). It had to do with if they needed to put grounds on my body, they needed to know if I had any metal implants. They don't like dangling jewelry, like earrings and necklaces, because of all the tubes and whatnot around your body but I could have left my piercings in no problem.
Thanks again so much for all the support!!! You guys are the best!
27yo Female, diagnosed with IBS in 2002. Suffered for years without relief or help from doctors until I started working with a new GI in Aug '08. Now I'm currently taking 5mg of Reglan before each meal and before bed. Seems to be helping so far...Keep those fingered crossed!!
