Pain in the… [UPDATED]

It’s off to the doctor’s office with me. If you’re wondering what’s happening, I’ll give you a hint:

UPDATE: In at 10:30, out at 12:30. They put me OUT for the procedure, so I didn’t feel a thing besides the IV… and the horrible purging procedure yesterday, anyway. Doc said “we removed one polyp, nothing evil.” There shouldn’t have been anything evil up there… all that got shot out the tailpipe last night.

The nurse said I’d probably want to have a nap when I got home to sleep off the rest of the anesthesia, and she was right. She also told me no booze until tomorrow, which kind of shot down my plan for this evening. Tomorrow is, however, another day!


  1. Poor old you, I hate have colonoscopies but have them every five years along with a gastroscopy. Glad you're ok.

  2. Well, it sounded like it went okay.

  3. Helen, they told me "3 to 5 years depending on what the lab says about the polyp." I guess that's the price to pay for staying healthy at our age, huh?

    Patricia, it did. I don't exactly look forward to the next one, but the prep is worse than the actual procedure. The anesthesiologist sent that happy-juice down the IV and it was "good night Louise."


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
