Woof team. Woof.
I wanted to pop in just to hit some of the highlights of today. I actually feel worse now then I did before but they said it was probably the side effects of all the flushing. Yum. Eating is not that pleasant so I stuck with easy stuff tonight. Hopefully tomorrow I can actually enjoy food. Not going to lie though, setting my alarm for 530 am on a Saturday is no fun but I keep reminding myself that even a short run before I have to catch the metro at 730 am will be worth it.
I am going to be real,I knew something wasn’t right last night when I started drinking that stuff. I drank it, slash gagged it down and then laid in bed to try and fall asleep. Now, I was prepared for an up and down night but on an empty stomach that was growling I actually fell asleep stat and slept straight till 6 am. What? Yep, nothing was coming. So I got worried, I felt how bloated I was but nothing was coming out. Wuh oh. I finished the drink at 6 am, almost vomited from all the liquid. Finally, I went twice at about 8 and 9 but not a lot by any means.
Fast forward after a walk and bus ride to the place, I was at the hospital. They prepped me with an iv and then came the anesthesia. I have never had anesthesia before but one minute I remember them putting oxygen on me and the next I was done. Strangely though, I woke up mid way through the procedure. I remember looking at them, them looking back and saying oh no and then I was out again.
While I am still waiting on the biopsy, the doctor did say there was nothing alarming however there is definitely something wrong. There was a lot of residual stuff in the upper colon and blockages along the way. What was comforting for the first time ever, he looked at me and said we will work on this. He is going to wait for the tests and then we will start experimenting with my eating, supplements (like Miralax, etc) and do further tests if needed.
I have to say, without an amazing staff there I would have been scared to death. They were sweet and a bit surprised I was so relaxed. So while I may not have answers I do rule out some huge surgery like problem. That is something to be thankful for.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
