First - the portion he was able to do was "Normal Exam"!
That's where it goes down hill. Woke up in Recovery in major abdominal pain. Turns out he could only 'get to' 2/3rds of colon (what he got to was normal YEAH). There was a 'Jumble' (at least that what Hubby said he was told) that he could not get into (honestly I'm not real sure everything I was told). There were X-rays done in Recovery but only showed the air they had put in. Went to get dressed and belly was so bloated jeans couldn't get within 3 inches of fastening. We came home - Hubby was wanting to take me back to ER but I refused so he called work and told them he wouldn't be in today as he was taking me to ER in the AM. Major pain (with NOTHING passing through the night) so I agreed to go to ER this morn.
The Dr. I saw this morn ordered more X-rays which were almost identical to the ones done yesterday. She ordered supposotories (SP?). So far nothing has happened.
The Dr who did the Colonscopy is passing on to my PA that a barium enema should be done to check the areas that he couldn't. I'll be calling her Mon to talk with her - I'm not sure rather or not it'll be needed - this was only done as a 'safety' measure as I'm IBC.
As the Dr who did the test said before it - 1 out of 10,000 has a problem - I happened one of those few. Will I do it again - I don't know - I do want to find out more on 'jumble'.
Thank you all for being there - you were felt.
