Yup yup! Going to the hospital in 2 hours for a scope. My GI is having a surgeon sit in and watch to decide if they want to do another resection or not, they probably will.  Blah, I think my tummy is finally done going crazy -hopefully- Ew, I hate the prep, there has got to be a better way haha. Cant wait to get this done and over with so I can come home and sleep, and even more exciting eatttttt when I wake up =) Hopefully they drug me up good enough so I dont wake up in the middle of it like I did last time Wish me luck!

Good luck, Melissa! Don't forget to remind both the CRNA and your gastro that you want more la-la juice than you got last time. NEVER rely on their memory for something like that! Hopefully, as for most of us, the worst is now over, that doggone prep is done.
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Good luck!! And I agree with C2. Remind them to give you more meds as last time they didn't give you enough.

Im home and in la la land. Everything went well, I did wake up though but no pain or anything. My GI said the crohns is spreading just a bit (the last scope showed 5 inches of active crohns, now theres that 5 inches and bits and peices throughout) but the surgeon said he wants to hold off on surgery for a little while to try to give the humira a little bit longer to work.  They put me on folic acid and a few other things, and hooked me up with a nice little pain med script which was nice of him since he refused the last time. I'm feeling a little bit better..just glad its done and over with for now.
