I began my prep for my 4th -oscopy last night, with a full bottle of magnesium citrate. After a light breakfast of rice krispies and bananas, with a cup of English Breakfast tea, I am off real food until after the procedure tomorrow, and off even liquids after bedtime. Which means my next full meal is approximately 30 hours away. As much as I like to eat, this is NOT an easy prep for me!
The man who made all this possible is my dad. Today would have been his 79th birthday, but he died of colon cancer in 1991. The VA would not believe there was anything wrong when he complained about the pains in his gut, and therefore would not order the tests that could have saved his life. By the time a civilian doctor did an exploratory, it was too late.
UPDATE: It’s Friday, late afternoon. Had my -oscopy this morning, was home before 11. Only one tiny little polyp, no worries on the one that was hinky last year, next procedure in 3 years. Hey, Glenn, should I post pictures?
