Just thought I would update you all that I had my colonoscopy on Wednesday and my MRI today (Friday). I woke up during the colonoscopy; I would not recommend it.
I ended up having 3 polyps removed and the doctor said that he thought that one of them looked pre cancerous. So now I get to wait for up to 2 weeks for the pathology report. I also ended up having major muscle spasms/cramps in my legs the day before the procedure while I was doing the prep. So that may be something those of you that have MS and spasticity may want to address with your own doctors if you are ever lucky enough to have this procedure.
The MRI today was uneventful. I do not have an appt with my neuro until June 24th, but I will try to find out the results before then.
We are under a tornado watch for the next several hours here in Illinois.
