But my laptop is very poorly, my SIL is hoping to resuscitate it, in the mean time I have borrowed my DD’s laptop.
Unfortunately I seem to have lost access to MSE & Facebook, neither of these recognise my login, I’m hoping this blog post will work and enable me to update everyone.
I went to hospital on Friday to have a colonoscopy, to have this procedure it is necessary to swallow 2 large doses of laxative during the day before the hospital visit. I took the first dose between 1 and 2 o’clock and the 2nd dose between 6 and 7 o’clock in the evening. Unfortunately the first dose didn’t start to work until 9pm so I got very little sleep and therefore had plenty of time to worry myself silly about the forthcoming procedure and its outcome.
I have a huge bruise on the back of my hand where the anesthetic was introduced none too gently and I spent most of the afternoon after the hospital visit asleep.
It seems I have diverticulitis, which should be manageable with diet and/or medication, a biopsy was also taken and the results will be through in 2 to 3 weeks.
I was saying about the 1st laxative taking a few hours to take effect, well the 2nd dose didn’t work until about 5 o’clock, I’d been warned that when the camera was shoved up my bottom they also add large quantities of air, this means that you are encouraged to pass wind frequently after the procedure. This is fine until you combine this with the delayed effect of the laxative. Lets just say that the toilet floor has now been scrubbed and bleached to within an inch of its life
