It seems I have inflammation & ulceration in the terminal ileum, also ascending colon shows colitis & ulceration, plus a small
stricture in that area also. I have to await the results of 5 biopsies before he decides on surgery or not....
I was also supposed to have had profofal anesthesia, but they couldn't find a free anesthesiologist to give it. They gave me
250 microgams of fentanyl, with 14mg's of versed, it just didn't touch me. It was so painful, but that seemed the better option
than canceling, and having to do the prep again. I find it so hard to believe, that in a huge hospital (St Louis University hospital)
they could not have found an anesthesiologist to put some IV meds in & watch me for about 45 mins... BUT I swear as God is my
witness, it wont happen again. I'm just so versed resistant. I think the doc realizes that now. He couldn't apologize enough. Oh well
it all over now. I'm hoping that I wont need surgery just yet, my new grand baby is due at the end of January, and I want to be up
Thanks for listening to me rant, I think I'm over it, or at least I will be, when my distended tummy goes down (smile)
