I just had a colonoscopy on the 4th. The prep wasn't bad, dulcolax and miralax with orange gatorade. Before the procedure, the doc gave me Phenergan, Benadryl, Morphine, Valium and Versid. I began to talk loopy and fall asleep, but when the procedure began, I was wide awake. I could feel the scope going up, up, and away! I was lucid the whole time.
When I woke up in recovery, I felt really, sick; nauseated. I was sent home. Stopped a few miles down the road to get a soda. I took a few sips and lost my lunch. My sister called the doc's office and they said to eat a few saltine crackers. BIG MISTAKE. I made it home and the vomiting began. I had some Phenergan tabs and tried to take one, lost it too. No abdominal cramps just dry heaves by then. Called my doc and he said DON'T EAT!!!
Everyone at the hospital said it would be okay to eat. Anyway, I threw up for about eight to nine hours, beet red and itching and stinging all over. I called my doc's office back, (my sister had called for phenergan suppositories) and they said I would have to wait until the next day for a scrip to be called in.
So, I called my general practitioner and he called me the phenergan in to my pharmacy in about 5 minutes or so. Two days later and I am still not well. Has anyone else had this kind of experience? Please let me know.
