Clean as a Whistle!
I had my very first colonoscopy on Thursday and the doc gave me a clean bill of health – YAY! I have a healthy colon, and don’t have to do this again for another 10 years!
Not all that bad, really – and yes, the drugs were very nice (they used propofol on me).
Apparently, part of the procedure is to inflate the colon. In the recovery room, this leads to the nurses telling you in the nicest way possible to fart as much as possible. “Just keep pushing that air out”, they say.
They even gave me pictures (of the procedure, not the farts!), which I feel semi-obligated to share … consider yourselves warned!
