A Personal Update – I Had A Follow-Up Colonoscopy

Hello Friends,

I have been away for a couple of days due to a follow-up colonoscopy procedure I underwent on Friday, May 28th.

I was subject to a two-day prep, which meant a liquid diet and ingesting some horrible stuff to flush my system out to be as clear as possible. The procedure itself was nothing compared to the two days of getting ready for it. That is a common story for all who have been through a colonoscopy. One thing I know is that the anesthesia is kinda the fun part about it.

My doctor removed a 30mm polyp out of my colon. The polyp will be sent to a lab for analysis so I can know that it’s nothing to worry about or something to deal with. I am glad the whole thing is over for awhile.

I first want to thank my Mrs., The Soup Diva for taking care of me these past few days. It was not easy for her. Things are hopefully returning to a more normal state or being for us. One thing I know is that I am a horrible patient and being taken care of does not come naturally to me. I will write more about that in a follow-up post.

The nurses and technicians were great, and my doctor was a pro. I am grateful for their professionalism and care.

With grace and peace, your blogging pal

Tony

  1. Good for you for getting this periscope procedure done. I had one done 21 years ago and they found a cancerous tumor. I had an extensive surgery to remove it and now I am a “bag lady” but it is a small price to play for still being alive. I am here 21 years later because that tumor was found before it spread to other organs. The preparation is a pain but the procedure is a snooze ….literally!

  2. I’m sorry you’ve had to go through all of this but I’m glad it was done smoothly. I really hope you get the results back soon and that they’re all clear for a benign polyp and nothing further needing to be done 🤞💜
