well i prepped yesterday for my colonoscopy,i get up there this morning for the test and go to the place. then they tell me that they dont except my insurance. so i did all that prepping for nothing and starved and got a raw bottom. so now i'm gonna have to have my family doc order the test i guess. and just have it done at the hospital. just wanted to rant alittle.

Oh no! Treat yourself today, you deserve it.

Seems they could have done a better job of intervening, or at least alerting you to check for that at the place where you were scheduled.

I'm sorry to hear about that! I would be extremely upset and frustrated, too.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

Wow that is awful. I found the prep far worse than the actual procedure so to go through all that for nothing...!

That almost happened to me. My doctor's assistant told me to go to the wrong hospital for the procedure. Luckily I tend to give myself WAY more time than necessary so I had enough time to rush to the correct hospital. I was soooo worried I would miss my appointment and have to go through the prep all over again.
