Yeah I know, I never put it on the calender. But yesterday was my B_day. Want to know how I spent it? I starved myself for most of the day then later I started taking these nasty pills.....
OSMOPREP 1.5GM   TAB SALI

I bet some of you know what that is for. This was four tablets taken at 3:00pm 4@3:15pm 4@3:30pm 4@3:45pm 4@4:00pm

Then it starts again 4@8:00pm 4@8:15pm 4@8:30pm

Then I get to top it off with four Dulcolax at 9:30pm

After the 5:00pm pills you can imagine what was going on. And on top of that I up-chucked. What eventually came up was way pass the stomach.

So for those that are getting the picture you can imagine what the night was like. Now remember I think I mentioned I always have headaches, well I couldn't take any of my excedrins since Monday. I gave in and took a dose Wednesday. So here I have a hurting head to go with all this other CRAP, if that is what one would call what was coming out.

So I show up at the Dr.'s office at 6:00am. Fill out the paper work and sit and wait.... and wait.... and wait. I see the Doctor walking in at 7:25am. I am sitting there with this awful aching head for an hour and a half before the Doc even shows up. All I wanted was one of two things, either throw my paper work on the admit counter and go home, or they get me back there and give me the good drugs to put me to sleep.

Finally almost 8:30 I get to go to the back and answer more questions get the gown on, and finally get led to a bed. Then the part I really dread.... THE I.V..... Well at least she got it on the first stick (my veins move around) but it must have gone a little to far it was hurting. She backed it out a bit and it felt fine.

Finally got rolled down the hall towards the good drugs...YES!!!... but had to wait in the hall for the previous victim to get rolled out of the room.

OK I am finally there. Finally the blissful darkness falls around me. And I remember something about trying to tell them the thing was going in wrong. OH I didn't mention.... I was getting Scoped from both ends. They have you bite down on this little plastic circular thing before you are put down....I mean to sleep. I was trying to tell them this thing was slipping and the scope thing was going wrong. Then I drifted out of my blissful slumber to find myself in the recovery room. I saw one of the people that was tortu....er...Treating me and waved to let her know I was awake....because something didn't feel right. You see, I am no strange to either of these intrusions. Sure enough it turns out I was fighting them. They even gave me more sleepy stuff and they couldn't control me. I was pulling the thing out of my mouth. I think there were three of them, but I held them off. So they were bringing in an anesthesiologist with a hammer. I mean more drugs. As she was wheeling me back to the room she said they were going to knock me out and remove my brain, Is that correct? I said that was it. Then of course I told her what they were going to do because they always want to know how aware you are of what is going on.

Well there were no surprises from the upper entry, I still have ulcers. And I think they found a pollup... what ever that is and how ever you spell it.... in the lower entry.

Yes boys and girls....Welcome to my birthday party.

thanks for sharing smiley

seriously, it's good that they found a polyp and not an invasive mass.  ulcers?  at your young and tender age?  you know the cure is hot peppers?

Yes I admit I am only 53 years of age. I think I know what causes the ulcers.... Well some of it anyway. I mentioned I have headaches constantly, and the only thing that works for me is excedrin. And I am sure that has something to do with it. But all the blood test they do shows I need the nexium, something about acid in the blood I guess. And now on top of that I take Prilosec OTC. I guess he thinks he can curtail those ulcers.

Oh. I left out a bit of the story. Before I got out of there they just had to stick me again to draw blood. I really hate needles. I don't know why. I would rather they slice me with a knife and draw the blood from the cut. I guess I heard a story about needles breaking off or something when I was a child. Mom thinks it is because I got sooo many shots when I was a kid.

Glad you liked the story Wink

Jerry,Hope for better days ahead.
I have never been through anything like that so I can only imagine.
I take protonix on a daily basis .It actually changed my life to the better,able to sleep at night without worry of choking from reflux swelling the throat shut at night and I could eat a little something after six pm.
Not to mention I could again sample the foods I could only smell and dream of for a long time.
Any way Happy Belated birthday and I'm sure your next will be much better!

Jerry, well, well, well, thanks for sharing!!!  Too much information!!! LOLL.  I have had several surgeries and I know that stuff.  EEEKS.

The worst surgery that I ever had was nasal reconstruction.  I had a deviated septum and they had to do things to my nose to make the inside smaller (in a nutshell) cause I could not breath very well.  To make a long story short, when they pulled the packing out of my left and right nostrils, it felt like they were pulling out my brains too.  The amount of packing that they had stuffed in there was not of this world.  They yanked on this stuff, pulling it out for probably no less than a minute and it was aabout 10 feet long.  Gracious sakes alive.

I am glad that you had so much fun on your birthday Jerry.  Things could be alot worse.  YOu could have sat at home, drank some wine or beer, had a hoot and a hollar and a great relaxing day.  Best of this good day.  Cindi

Jerrymac;

headaches all the time?  You sound like me.  I have them 24/7 from lowgrade to Migraines.  Mine are a result of several serious closed head injuries when I was a police officer.  For years the only treatment was to put up with it.  Now, due to medical science, I have medications I can take to help tame the real bad ones and other treatments to help with the personality changes and memory loss that has also been a part of the problem. 

You should ask you doc about seeing a headache specialist--it's different than a head shrinker although you'll find some of those specializing in that field.  I can't tell you how much difference it makes to be able to take a pill and tone down the pain enough to still function,.

To any of you members that suffer with headaches.  My heart goes out to you.  Now and then I get a nasty headache, probably borderline migraine.  It causes me intense anguish, I am sure that my adrenal glands are working overtime in these situations, and we know that is not good.  Like I said, I know that pain now and then and to live with that pain constantly is nothing I would even begin to wish on even someone that I have an intense dislike for.  It is a pain within and this kind of pain is the worst that I could imagine having to live with.  My day for empathy for those with the headaches.  BUT, nevertheless, have a wonderful day, good health.  Cindi

First off , belated happy birthday.  grin

I had my first colonoscopy at 39. My father died of colon cancer at 83. So he wasn't very young. My mother also died of cancer. So with a family history I get to be check a bit more often. Lucky me. And yes the medicine you take before hand is awful.

I had nothing so up in my test results so I was fortunate also.

However after your examine you can go out and party it up and clog up your intestines with whatever you want. Maybe a nice juicy piece of medium rare steak.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

I've had two colonoscopies, my dad died at 65 of it.  They usually take out a polyp or three, so I can't eat that juicy steak until a few days later  Undecided  The preparation stinks, but the procedure isn't that bad.  I've heard when they scope you from above it's worse. 

So, those of you who have been putting it off and you're over 50 (or over 40 and have a family history) contact your doctor and have it done!  It really isn't that bad, and in this day and age there is no reason why anyone should die of colon cancer, it's so detectable and so removable.  My dad had built his dream woodworking shop and never got a chance to use it  Cry  Don't let that happen to you!

Well. I have out lived my dad. He died at the young age of 46, (Or was it 47?) he had a stroke because he stopped taking his high blood pressure meds. Yep I take that also. Along with something for the cholesterol, and something for thyroid problems. Not real sure what that is/was, but I use to get cold if the temp was below 80F. Now I can tolerate winters a little better.

Anyway about the head aches. I thought it was something normal to have some sort of pain in your head at all times. Was I surprised to find out differently. I can't imagine what it must be like to be absolutely pain free. I would probably wonder if my head fell off. My wife has ventured a guess that when I do complain about a head ache, it is probably to the level where most people have gone to bed in a dark room and don't want any noise or movement. And when I reach that stage, my pain is probably off the chart. That is when the alien creature has broken through the top of the scull.

Thats no good mate.

An Aussie Doctor discovered that ulcers are caused by bacteria. A few pills and they go away. I hope thats the type of ulcers you got.

As for the lemonade and sars department. Try psyllium husk powder, have you moving logs like a lumberjack in no time! Big floating buggers thatll clean you out no worries.

I worked in a hospital once, oh the yarns I could spin!

Mick, gross!!!!

We gave our horses psyllium husk.  We did an experiment one time to see how wel it cleaned out their innards.  Dissolved a big bunch of road pucks in a bucket of water.  Drained off all the floaty stuff and man oh man, was I ever surprised to see how much sandy debris (probably more like little teeny weeny rocks from the ground) was left after liquid was drained off.  Goes to show how the psyllium cleans out intestines.  Have a wonderful day, good health.  Cindi

Oh, Jerry and Brian, I feel for you with the headaches.  Now that I'm in what they call perimenopause (I guess) I get hormone migraines.  Twice a month.  It's just wonderful  rolleyes  I've got a prescription for Imitrex, but I don't like to take it, I made the mistake of reading the little white sheet that comes with it and saw cardiac implications I don't like at all - but I absolutely have to to get rid of the headache.  Sometimes it lasts three to four days.  Have you talked to a doctor about your headaches?  There are meds out there that'll take care of them.

Mick, i think that's why the hot peppers work.  they change the ph in the stomach and gut and it is not friendly to the bacteria anymore.  + i like hot peppers.

I take Midrin.  A nice little capsul that reduces the effects of the really bad migraines to an endurable level.  I use to have migraines that would last for weeks, they caused a lot of memory lapses--I would have mental blackouts lasting for days on end.  Now I take a pill and the pain gets reduced.

I still suffer from memory lapses but not as many or as often. 

Couple the Migraines with a bought Menier's disease and you are reduced to a fetal position in a dark room--absolutely no noise.  My younger brother and I both suffer from Menier's, some days you walk like a drunk and some days you can't even walk.
