doc in private practice venting steam....because life is more than just stethoscopes, syringes & getting woken up at unearthly hours.
Happy 51st. Indeed it shows, you are one year wiser!The dread part of the process is the amount of fluid you have to gulp down the night before. Do not procrastinate.
Don't you get knocked out before they stick that thing up your ass?
Happy 51! Now it's your turn to wish me happy 35! :) While you're are it, pls advise me what I have to do at 35.
Happy 51,,looks like simplicity is the way of life,,just like christianity,,,,,happy birtday, if that's what you meant
A Blessed 51 to you & many more to come.
Ouch!..i m almost reaching there.. Happy Birthday to U! best wishes and healthier days to u too!colonscopy? one doc asked me whether i want to get one done or not few years ago.. i didnt... very scared.. can tell us later how it feels when u hv done with it? :p
hmmm... invasion coming...
been there done the *scopy.. Laparascopy, Gastroscopy, Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy & I'm not even 51... lucky udespite being under local anaesthesia, I could feel the scope probing, choking but it's painless. if there is a next time I will probably opt for the pill camerahappy 51 where health really mattersmissyC
Iml,thanks.i'm planning to add ribena to the bowel prep fluid to make it palatable.
Anastasia,english #101:the patient will be sedated (NOT knocked out!!) with alfentanil & midazolam before the scope is inserted into (NOT stick up) the rectum (NOT ass!).
Jo,thanks & blessed 35!advice - matt 6:33
Eugene,thanks.the Way, the Truth & the Life - that's the path to take.
Claire,thanks.everyone above 50 should have a yearly colonoscopic examination for early detection of bowel cancer.will post about it after it's done.
Zewt,hmm...i fear the rear-guard will be breached!
missyC,thanks.you're still alive & that's what that counts. the pill camera is not so reliable.
thumbs up...but its not painful ler..its the cannula insertation is painful..get EMLA before inserting cannula.. :P
Mich,looks like i have to insert the cannula myself!!
come dr...i insert for u..my skills not bad though.. LOL
Belated Birthday wishes doc! Had gastroscopy/colonoscopy done a few years back and didn't feel a thing. although the bowel prep nearly killed me lol.
Dobbs,thanks.the sedation was good, huh? one of my patients told me the same thing about the bowel prep before his anterior resection. that's why i plan to add ribena to the fortrans to make it palatable & throw in a tab of redoxon for that fizzy vitamin c taste. heh heh!!
Mich,thanks but i think i'll get the anaesthetist to do it.
You mean you can add sweetener to it????? Must remember this the next time I have to down this fluid.
Iml,as far as i know, no one has thought of doing this but i plan to be the 1st!! why torture oneself more when the scope is already unconfortable enough! heh heh!
Happy belated birthday doc! Interesting idea to add Ribena and Redoxon haha!
Adino, thanks.hmm...i sense a patent materialising!
Oops! I'm late...but as they say, better late than never! Your birthday's one day before mine? Well, belated birthday greetings and may God bless you abundantly in the year ahead. Wah...so young!!! LOL!!!
less torture for bowel cleansing if you eat less meat or consume food easily digested at least 2days b4. ribena & redoxon more torture if prone to gastric with wobbly legs & grumpy tummy... missyc
Happy belated birthday doc... i dread the day. my general well being is slowing down. the other day i blacked out in the gym. if we go by genetics, most ppl in my family leave early. :)
i wasnt satisfied with my birthday greeting. I googled n found u this :)http://www.123greetings.com/aff-bin/card/327/102917
STP,thanks. now we can relate better to each other!
Missyc,thanks for the tip. i think my tummy will be very agreeable with ribena & redoxon.
Beng,thanks.you take care & see the doc at the slightest hint of trouble, ok?
Heppi ! heppi ! Birthday and hope u have a blast of a time ! BTW - ur blog does not match ur age - it's more of a younger generation blog........:)Anyway - I sure enjoy reading your blog from time to time . HAPPY BIRTHDAY once again.
Unicorn Girl,thanks.at my age, a blast is not good for the heart! so, it's a mismatch between the content of this blog & my age, huh? i'll take it as a compliment, thanks! can't help it - it's just the way i am.
