I will find a way or make one. –Phillip Sidney 1554-1586
All that I am and all that I shall ever be, I owe to my Angel Mother.
The Bucket List- Have you found joy in your life? Has your life brought joy to others?
Make sure your suffering has meaning…
Phenergan (promethazine) is a godsend for nausea. You should be able to get a prescription for that right away.
Have you ever tried a heating pad for the pain?
I'd also stay away from NSAIDs (Advil and the like) as they are a big no-no for people with bowel problems and will make your symptoms worse.
I have anxiety and depression too. I let things bother me too much, so I feel your pain (literally).
I appreciate all of your posts. I wanted to update everyone..I had my doc appointment yesterday (Monday). I told her all about my symptoms, family history, and everything I shared with you all on this forum. As I expected, she sent me for bloodwork, and she referred me to a GI doctor. Also, I'll be having my first colonoscopy soon. They'll send me something in the mail letting me know when my appointment is. Now THIS is what I'm really fearful of. I've read many of your posts, and most of you say it isn't that bad..that the prep is worse. I don't know which I'm more nervous about, the prep or the procedure itself. Is it true the procedure takes almost an hour? If that's the case I think I'd prefer the 'twilight sleep.' How is it waking up afterwards? Do the drugs leave you feeling sick or just drowsy? If I have Crohn's, will it necessarily show up when they do the colonoscopy? As for the prep, I dread that. Is there something you can drink that tastes better than the traditional stuff they give you? I've heard that tastes awful
Thanks in advance...and sorry for all the questions.
