You guys have been so helpful with all my newbie questions...now I have a couple of more.
1. as my first colonoscopy draws near I've become worried that it might hurt. does it hurt? more like if they remove a polyp or hemmroid, or when they take a sample to biopsy? just something I've thought up lately.
2. I've developed a nasty cold again. I had one last month that required 10 days of antibiotics. at the end of my antibiotics is when I got the sickest and bled the most recently. do certain antibiotics cause flares and if I need another antibiotic will they still be able to do the colonoscopy if I'm really sick and on antibiotics? I know starting tonight I'm not allowed any aspirin or motrin like pills...which sucks because of the body aches I'm having...tylenol just doesn't cut it for me, but it's not like I have much of a choice.
I think that's all. I'm hoping this cold doesn't turn out like the last one. They were really worried about pneumonia with all the chest congestion I had and the cough never fully went away and now I'm sick again. I was in the ER last night for 7 hours with chest pains thanks to chest congestion. No antibiotics yet though...it's not quite yellow. TMI..I know. I don't know if that's good or bad...the no antibiotics.
