Colonoscopy tomorrow morning

Hi friends,

I am asking for prayers and positive thoughts for my colonoscopy tomorrow morning. I have never had one and am a little nervous (well, maybe a lot nervous). I was given the option of drinking the prep or taking in pill form. My doc said most people that have done both prefer the pill form so that is what I will do starting tonight. Has anyone taken the pills?Hopefully, all will go well.

Thanks for your support!

Hugs,
Sara

I hope all goes well! I haven't had the pill form, somehow it sounds a little easier! Let us know.

Oh yes, many here have used pills (I used OsmoPrep twice). Just be sure to drink the prescribed amount of liquid. You'll be fine.

Hi Sara,

Praying for all to go well and for you to not be too anxious about it all. I'm surprised to hear you never had one before, but then I guess I remember that your cancer was found in another way. Wow- pill form- the regular horrible liquid prep stuff that I had to drink for my last colonoscopy was awful and had me throwing up to try to get it all down. I'm so glad to hear they have pills you can now take instead- you're lucky on that one, girl!
I'll be waiting to hear how it goes- take care and hang in there- it will be over before you know it. :)

a match made in heaven.....NOT....but its pretty easily done...and it started for me at 2 pm and lasted til about 7:30 or 8....and then one more time just for good measure that morning but I had a ostomy bag...If your worried about sleep pooping (same as sleep walking) simply wear an adult diaper tonight when you go to bed...You'll do fine but trust me..don't fart and think you'll get by with it without being on the john, you won't....and plain diaper wipes with no fragrance or smell is great for the dabbing of the tush you'll be doing by prep end. Yes maam the old tail will get a little raw so the easier you take it on the front end the easier it will be in the end....( did that sound right? )...just be gentle...and preplan out the place that you want to eat at after its over preferably to go, because you may not remember it later that day...In hopes for an all clear.......Love and prayers, Clift

Thanks for all the info and well wishes. It is so great to have this board with people that really understand and can relate. Sometimes I feel like no one understands how I feel, but I've learned from this board that you all feel the same way and it is normal. I appreciate you all more than you will ever know. Thank you!!

Hugs,
Sara

Dear Sara,

To have a pill rather than all that yucky stuff to drink would be wonderful!

Don't worry about the scope itself, you will do fine.

Prayers that the results are all good!

Thank you all so much for the prayers and positive thoughts. The procedure went well with no polyps found. There was a small "bumpy" area that will be biopsied, but the doc said he did not think it was anything. But because of my history he will need to be sure. I should get the results early next week.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Big hugs,
Sara

Hi Sara,

Glad it's over for you! Sounds like all is well. I know you'll be having a bit of anxiety waiting for the biopsy result of the bumpy area, but I have a feeling all will be fine. Take care & we'll talk again soon, hopefully. :)

I've never had a colonoscopy so I couldn't give advice. But I just wanted to say, I'm glad it went well, and things look good!!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well.
