Hi OH -
I had not been checking posts so I missed wishing you well in advance. Glad you got through it and it sounds like the results were good? I figure by now you have the path results...? I hope they are unremarkable!
I always felt a little "off" the day after a scope. I used to think it was all in my mind until I realized that other drivers tended to honk at me a lot on the day after! And that was when I was 20 -30 years younger! I imagine these things take more recovery time as the years go on.....I am thinking about
this kind of thing a lot these days as I head into my next medical adventure. I don't want to spend "down time" but... what is realistic? And where is my Owner's Manual with a chapter for each bodily system and possible ramifications of each procedure? And like my car place, shouldn't we get a "loaner" if a procedure debilitates us for a certain amount of time....?
