Okk so illl start right off… I go to the bathrom once every 3weeks. No exaggeration. Soi went to the GI dr. He suggests I do a 2 laxative prep for a colonoscopy that I will be havin tomorrow in the morning. I haven’t eaten ANYTHING AT ALL. Since saturday night. And can’t eat anything til after the procedeure tomorrow. Anyway, after the procedure is done, a few days later I have to go to a radiology center and take a pill with plastic discs inside. Then swallow. Wait 5 days and go back n have them xray my stomach to see how far the discs went. Then I have to have a dr blow a balloon up my ass and i have to push it out?! Idk bout that one. Lol
But anyway, they have me 2 options if the tests come back bad. I can be bagged permanantly or have surgery to have most of my colon removed.
I know that if/when it comes to that point I will go get a second opinion..
I just wanted to know if any of you lovely Beez out there have gone through any of this or maybe know someone who has?
If you could offer advice, insight. Or even anything. I’m freaking out about all of it. Thank you

All I can say, is hugs. Hugs to you because any problem with my ass would have me freaking the fuck out too.
Good luck, I’m sorry you’re going thru this.

WarrenWE: Did they ask you anything about your diet, water intake and activity level?

Just relax. I had to have a colonoscopy and endoscopy done back in college. The doctors had me all worked up telling me something was probably wrong with my lower intestines. I receieved notice a few days later that I was perfectly fine! I was all worked up for no reason. Since then whenever doctors make a claim that isn’t backed up by medical evidence I just relax until I see proof.
Don’t worry everything will work out just fine!

julies1949: kind of. They asked what type of food I eat and what activity level I would say I am. They didn’t ask about my water intake.
They did the colonoscopy today. There were a few areas that were inflamed but there were no blockages. He took a few biopsies just incase. He still wants me to do the other tests starting next week. I just have to give it a week to let my body get back to normal. I finally got to eat, thank god. Lol

WarrenWE: I also have stomach issues and feels like I have a brick in my stomach. I finally figured out that mine is stress induced. 3 weeks must be hell 🙁 hopefully they can figure lut whats causing this. I really feel for you as stomach issues are hard to live with on a daily basis
