Hi hippi, I'm so glad you like your new doctor that makes all the difference in the world. I'm with the others on this that the colonoscopy is not a huge deal except for the drinking the stuff to clean you out first and that tasted like 3 gallons of salt walter! YUcko!
I know everything gets so overwhealming after while. You know we are supposed to have colonoscopies and mamograms and these things done every so often as we get older. Not that I mean you are old or anything lol. I'm the old one here. It just seems like if you puit the normal things together with all the appts for A/I. it's like we spend all of our time any in the doctors office, labs, at a hospital. or on the phone with appts and insurance company's .
I think that's a great idea that you both have your colonscopy done at the same time lol. That way you both can drink the yuckt stuff for dinner the night before. Maybe by candle light???
Hang in there sweet. Let us know how it goes Wenesday
love ya
God Bless

Hippie . . .

NO! Don't do the c'oscopy together!! Unless you are willing to have hubby upstairs and you downstairs for the prep day!! You need a bathroom all the yourself! With no stairway to engage. You'll be in and out of the bathroom with great urgency. On the evening of your prep day . . . you'll need to ask your family to please leave the convenient bathroom EMPTY for you. I really prefer having the house to myself for this lovely time. As we've all said, the prep is the hard part. LOL
