The appointment went well today I suppose. I do have to have a colonoscopy :( which is what I was afraid of. I SO did NOT enjoy the first one I had a few years ago. He doesn't believe it's anything serious. He thinks it's just irritable bowel. I told him I've had irritable bowel for years and never had this type of pain, so we'll see. I am supposed to take Miralax for 2 weeks and then we'll see what the colonoscopy shows. He agreed it was time since I am close to 50.
He said at this point that surgery would be maybe 1-2% success and those odds are just not worth it to me. I hope he's right and it's not anything to be concerned about, but you know that niggling thought that just won't go away? It's there, and he understands. I just want to feel better you know?
It's not scheduled till Oct 6th.
