Colonoscopy done today

I had my 1 year follow up colonoscopy this morning. Clean colon, yay!!!! The worst part was yesterday not eating and the worst of the worst was drinking MoviPrep. Sounds like something to drink to watch a good movie. No way!!! No watching anything drinking that crap. I ran and ran and had runs and runs for hours last night. Gag and choked drinking that stuff.
For all the newbies - Diagnosed 4/11/2012 large rectal tumor, Stage IV with mets to liver (1 single lesion). Chemoradiation for 5 weeks. Surgery June 19th, removed rectal tumor (no colostomy), removed liver tumor, removed gallbladder in 6 1/2 surgery with clear margins. 12/23 positive lymph nodes. Started Folfox 4 weeks after surgery in July and completed in December. CEA has been <0.5 since surgery and CT's and PET have been clear. I know last year I didn't know if I would be here this year, so I feel lucky everyday. I hope everyone is feeling good and kicking chemo's butt!

    Great news Sandy!  You have

    Great news Sandy!  You have been through so much this past year.  I just got my script for my 1 year follow up colonoscopy yesterday.  I have to wait until June to get it...I had it done in June of last year to help dx me.  I am not looking forward to that prep stuff again.   I had to do it twice in the same week...once for the colonoscopy and then again for the surgery.
