I'm 57 and have been putting having one off. I'm pretty sure I don't have polyps, but I am very interested in just hearing what my colon looks like, after having IBS for about
10 years. I especially am interested in seeing if they really do find a small animal in there! That's what it always feels like.
Do we get to talk to the doc ahead of time, and tell him our symptoms?
I'm not really worried about it. I know the clean-out isn't fun, but its better than a root canal. Plus, I love being home when doing unpleasant things. Plus.....I'm used to spending alot of time on the pot!
I just hope I don't get a headache.
Have any of you found that you had residual problems after such a drastic clean out?
I have found that when I've had to be NPO for some procedure, and had to do a Fleets enema, I actually feel really good. I suppose we would all feel better if we never had to eat! I do the clean out on Monday and the test is Tuesday morning. Wish me luck!
