Hey guys
Well after 10 painful months im finally getting a colonoscopy. And i have to go buy 1 box of pico-salax and 3 things of Dulcolax(5mg)
My symptoms keep on chaning. Now i feel i got gas cramps im guessing and i feel it in my stomach and when i have a bowl movement it doesnt go away. Im having lots of gas and at times i feel a burning sensation when having bowl movements.
Guess wut guys. The Flagly helped somewhat and i had my first piece of cake since 10 months and i was good. I had gas( and my stomach did feel like i was gonna have a bowl movement but then this feeling went away. And in the past 10 months i havnt experienced any diarrea. So what do you guys think this is. Some sort of infection or parasite?? Because this did happen after i threw up 10 times back in ay of 2006.
From my pervious post i believe Sarita asked me about blood in my stool and they checked for parasites as well but that was the old Gi specialist whom i didnt trust. I did get tested for blood in my stool back in the summer of 2006 and it came back saying i didnt have any blood. My new GI made me do an CT scan with the barium going up my rectum and that didnt show anything either. I had an endoscopy and they said it was good. I have blood tests and it came out good as well. Just last week i had the barium swallow drinking the chalky white stuff and im awaiting the results for that.
I guess preping for the colonoscopy will be fun. It really sucks. I have to be drinking water like every hour. Oh well cant wait till this is all over.
And now after a bowl movement i feel everything moving down slowly its so wierd
Let me know if i should know anything guys.
Im suppose to start drinking the prep stuff tomorrow tuesday at 8am until 10pm
then on wednesday its dooms

You're lucky, I've heard good things about the pico salax. Everyone agrees it tastes like Tang. Much improved over all the other nasty stuff they make you drink. Everyone who's had it, liked it!

Stock up on your trashy magazines right about now!  tongue

If you have an iPod, you should download a bunch of happy music (my personal favorite is the BeeGee's - "Stayin' Alive," yeah!) and entitle the playlist "Just for craps and Giggles").

You'll be fine!
