    It will soon be over. The prep is the worse.

    What are they looking for can I ask?

    Re: A question re: colonoscopy - 1st one tomorrow!

    Morning!

    So I’ve just finished drinking the 2nd litre of prep. This time round the nausea was more evident, feeling quite grim now.

    Oh dear, almost didn’t make it to the loo?! That was seriously grim!

    So slep okie, woke up about 4.30 for the loo but nothing too bad...

    Nicola, to answer your question - you’ve probably seen my posts on the ibs forum, I’ve had HA since my son was born. Have had blood in stools and on tp for over a year. Recently it’s got a bit more frequent and bowels have been very messed up. Doctor not worried, she thinks it’s colitis but because my anxiety is through the roof she suggested I do the colonoscopy to rule out bad stuff then proceed with allergy tests for lactose and gluten. Mainly to see where the blood is coming from...

    Getting nervous for the results as I type this...

    But it’s today and will soon be all over.

    My appointment is at 1.

    Xxxxx

    So I'm feeling a bit better now, nausea has passed, I had a little sleep (maybe 40 mins or so) and definitely feel better. I also had a chamomile with honey and that was nice too.

    Still going to the toilet every now and then and it's getting gradually more transparent which is also good as I was worried it was still too dense.
    I think I'm just going to try and drink as much as I can in the next hour (can't drink any more at 11) and listen to some meditation mp3s, have a bath or shower and then get ready to go

    Now I'm just trying to tell myself the worst is over, really hope everything is ok inside. I promise I will update afterwards.

    Thank you Nicola for replying to me, it's kept me sane
    xxxxx

    It is good that you are getting this looked at for peace of mind.

    Hope it all goes/went ok for you.
